BMW (E92) M3 Coupe for RM688,800 in Malaysia

BMW’s new (E92) M3 Coupe is now officially available from BMW Malaysia – via its dealers - for RM688,800 (sans insurance premium). Surprisingly, there is already a waiting list with ardent M-fan who has placed bookings since early March of this year! Despite a 6-speed manual version being the only option available now, with the twin-clutched DCT expected only by Q3 2008.

As most of you automotive enthusiasts and BMW fans alike would have known by now, the all-new M3 is powered by a manic-revving 4-litre V8 petrol engine punching out a maximum of 420bhp at 8300rpm. This, along with a maximum torque of 400Nm from a low 3000rpm through to 5600rpm, enables the coupe to rocket from 0 to 100km/h in only 4.8secs and marches on to an electronically-limited Vmax of 250 km/h.

By the time you read this, the waiting period for the new M3 – much like the delectable 335i coupe – would have stretched to one year or so in Malaysia.
