BMW M3 (E90, E92, E93)
The latest M3 marks a departure from the classic inline-6 engine layout and instead utilizes a high-revving V8 – 4.0 liters in the E90 and 4.4 liters in the E92 and E93. The new M3 was unveiled in 2007 and is once again offered as a sedan, as well as a hardtop convertible (E93). In addition to the customary 6-speed manual, a new 7-speed Getrag double-clutch M-DKG (or M-DCT) gearbox became an option. Performance figures reflect the new hardware: 0-62 mph in 3.9 seconds, ¼ mile in 12.4 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph.
