Introduction

What Car? says...

Don’t worry: you aren’t about to read a review of a road that starts in Surrey and snakes its way down to Southampton. In fact, the BMW M3 couldn’t be any more different than the grey and somewhat dreary motorway it shares a name with.

Since the mid-80s, the M3 badge has been worn by the fastest and most exciting versions of BMW’s popular executive saloon, the 3 Series. It’s the same deal with this latest model, except this one’s the most powerful incarnation yet with the firepower to match its archrivals, the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio and Mercedes C63 AMG
