Such as it is, this rendering looks more appealing than what I've seen of the new 6 series. (The "old" M6 was stunning, imho, and to heck with what the pundits say.) Of course, all BMWs look better in person. The new 550i for example looks much better than the photos suggest. (Maybe the E92 M3 is the exception, because they photograph so well.)

If these illustrations are true here, it seems that proportion-wise BMW is giving the M some of that thick-body look of the reborn Mustang, Charger, Camaro.

But will the new M3 have the note? What kind of rawr! can we expect from an über-turbo straight six 3.0? I've had a 335 turbo straight six 3.0, and it was very nice but it did not have much of a note of note (muffler notwithstanding).
