BMW M3 Gran Turismo Rendering
Last week, BMW revealed the M4 Coupe as a concept at the Quail in Pebble Beach, California. Based on that car, Theophilus Chin has rendered an M3 Gran Turismo, which looks interesting, if only a bit awkward.
Flared wheel arches, carbon brakes with gold calipers, bigger alloys and a quad exhaust system have all been added. Of course, the heart of this car would be the 420 hp multi-turbo straight-six engine.
But the question remains: would people actually buy a 420 hp hatchback? Not really, not when you consider the 3 Series Gran Turismo was built with extra legroom in the back and a trunk that's bigger than Turing. It's a company car, not a fire-breathing monster to impress your mates with.
From the start, the 3er GT was set up with a taller suspension and a softer setup, which makes it handle a bit like a mini SUV. It's hard to believe BMW will ever make a hardcore version of the softest car in this range.
