Racing the BMW M3 on Laguna Seca

Skip Barber instructor Jonathan Frost talked me through the turns at Laguna Seca, then he gave me a ride around the track.

The all-new 2008 BMW M3 Coupe and M3 Sedan, $57,275 and $54,575 respectively, will arrive in March 2008.

BMW says the all new light-alloy V-8 engine produces 414 hp at 8,300 rpm and 295 pound-feet of torque at 3,900 rpm with 85 percent of the maximum torque available consistently through 6,500 rpm.
