2014 BMW M3 saloon prototype crashed on the Nürburgring [Photos]

WE have seen the new BMW M3 saloon testing at various locations, with the prototypes loosing more and more of its camouflage.

Yesterday BMW confirmed some new technical details like the fact that both the M3 and M4 will use a high-revving six-cylinder in-line engine with BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology producing approximately 430bhp and beyond 500 Newton metres (369 lb-ft) of torque.

Six-speed manual will be standard and the the weight of the cars has been reduced to just under 1,500 kilograms.

Testing continues and as you can see the extreme Nürburgring is not easy even for the experienced BMW drivers. The M3 prototype was crashed yesterday in the part called “Metzgesfeld” where the driver lost control and crashed into the right guide rail.

The driver is OK and just got a toby collar from the doctor.

The BMW M3 prototype was taken back to the technical centre on closed car transport. Some parts of the front and passenger side are crashed, as well as the front window.
