The BMW 3-Series created the modern sporting sedan segment 40 years ago and has since set the pace among its rivals as far as dynamics, efficiency and emotionally rich design are concerned. The latest-generation BMW 3-Series represents another flawless embodiment of this commitment to benchmark excellence. This BMW M3 is the first to ever feature turbochargers under its bonnet.
