car description

With this true supercar, the German marque again advertised its automotive credentials. BMW's V8 is a 4.0-litre unit pumping out 420BHP. It also sounds unlike any other V8 engine. That's partly down to just how high it can rev: it will pull 8,400rpm comfortably, at which point it's screaming away like a Formula 1 car - its note is very much like the M5's V10 unit: fabulous, guttural, hard-edged and truly thrilling. Without the 'M' button pressed, the M3 works in its softest set of parameters - albeit parameters that allow it to be a ferocious per-former. But it's actually very easy to drive. Press the 'M' button and Dr Jekyll becomes a very intimidating - hairy - Mr Hyde! Exactly what happens when you press the button is kind of up to you. You can select different parameters - throttle response, steering assistance, the amount of help that the DSC traction control gives you - and tweak them to your own tastes. In consequence, the M3 can be any one of a number of different machines. Gone is the lightweight simplicity of its forebears and present in the kind of complexity that'll make used car buyers shudder in three year's time. But, once you put your foot down, that piece of paper
