Driven! The New BMW M3 is Put Through its Paces

Test Drive / 28 Comments

Lighter, more powerful, and as fast as ever.

This is the test drive you've been waiting for, and it's finally here. The all-new BMW M3 has been driven by none other than pro racing driver and Motor Trend host Justin Bell at a special BMW-sponsored M event. In order to prove just how much it understands what M is all about, BMW brought along previous M3s as well as the iconic M1. But the test drive itself is focused entirely on the new M3. For the first time ever, this car comes with a twin-turbo inline-six setup.

Now, some might be a bit hesitant about this, considering the previous gen was equipped with a naturally aspirated V8. Can this new engine surpass its predecessor? Oh yeah. It's faster, more nimble and more fun to drive than ever. And yes, you can turn off most of its electronic driving aids for a purer track experience.
