This settles it. We officially hate the guy from Abu Dhabi that is already driving the 2015 BMW M3. We don’t know how he did it, how he managed to get his hands on this car so soon but we do hate him because he gets to enjoy it on a daily basis and we don’t.
That being said, we also love him because he’s obviously a big BMW fan and he knows that everyone wants to know more about the new car as soon as possible. He’s also a great guy because he keeps us informed on how his car is making progress and his likes and dislikes of it.

Passing the 2,000 km break-in period, the man couldn’t wait to get his foot well into the acceleration pedal and put it to the metal, to see exactly what the M3 is capable of.

The first thing he did, of course, was a quick launch control run to check out the way the car takes off considering it’s only rear wheel-drive and not all wheel-drive like most performance cars today.

So, curious about how it sounds and goes? Check out the video below and then tell us if you like what you see and hear, as the S55 engine you’re seeing at work, started quite a controversy as to whether it’s a real M engine or not.

Making 431 HP and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft) of torque out of 6 cylinder that add up to 3 liters of displacement, you’d be inclined to say it’s definitely an M engine. However, the sound must also be incredibly good and by the looks of things, we might be in for a disappointment.
