BMW has been tightly associated with style for a long time and that doesn’t look to end with the release of the 2015 BMW M3. This new offering is bigger and badder than ever before and will have gear heads in heaven.

Typically when you make something bigger, or in a car’s case roomier, it tends to get heavier -- this is not the case with the new M3. The design team made the car bigger to accommodate performance-lovers who also have families. Dropping the weight while also increasing the room is an ideal way to do that.

Another way the 2015 BMW M3 separates itself from the older models is under the hood. The older models had V8 engines and while that is incredibly powerful, this new model will feature a “twin-turbocharged, 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine.” It’s hard to not salivate just reading that.

There's also a fair share of chromes and other little things that make the M3 look even more menacing than its predecessor. The car is adorned with deep dish rims, contoured carbon panel roof paneling and chrome-tipped exhaust pipes. BMW is not leaving the aggression out of this one.
