You can say that again! That's the most Japanese BMW behind of all time!

Quoting Jalopnik here:

"Well, ok. Don't get too excited, because it turns out the shots aren't the real deal, but the digital handiwork of Motor Forecast's Barry Hayden. Looks like we'll just have to wait some more."

but also add a little...one hell of an "UGLY" car at that...

i loved M3s but not this gen, will have to wait until the next one to fall in love again...too bad bmw ruined it, but it still would be a great car none the less but something i wouldnt ever consider anymore..

It's only the first week of 2007 and we've already landed the scoop of the year: the new BMW M3. CAR's spies have obtained design documents leaking the look of BMW's new super-saloon - several months ahead of its launch this summer.
We used the blueprints to produce a series of four stunning computer-enhanced images revealing exactly how the Three range-topper will look. A sculpted front spoiler punctured by two deep air intakes and a reprofiled bonnet paint a menacing face; elsewhere, the M3 is distinguished by trademark M side gills, 19in alloys and a redesigned rear apron with the licence plate nestled low down in the back bumper.
Under the bonnet lies a V8 of between 4.0 and 4.2 litres' capacity. For full technical details, read the story in the latest CAR Magazine: we've got the full monty, from power outputs to redline details; 0-60mph times and transmission spec.
