BMW M3 Performance going to Essen Motor Show image

Being an European version of SEMA, the Essen Motor Show is attracting high performance divisions of major automakers and the latest one to announce its presence at the automotive event is BMW, with its M3 Performance model.

According to the German based automaker, the M3 Performance is going to the 2011 edition of the Essen Motor Show, along with the 1-Series, 3-Series, X5, X6, X5 M and X6 M models which will be factory tuned, but sadly there’s no official details on their performance yet. The vehicles mentioned above will be shown at BMW’s stand during the 2011 Essen Motor Show, which will officially open its gates on November 26.

As a reminder, the BMW M3 (E90/92/93) has been presented during the 2007 Geneva Auto Show, being the fourth generation of the sedan. The M3 is being offered in three body styles, the four-door (E90), the two-door coupe (E92) and the two-door convertible (E93). The current BMW M3 is power by a 4.0 liter naturally aspirated V8 engine, developing a total output of 414 horsepower at 8.300 rpm and a peak torque of 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) available at 3.900 rpm.

But rather than talk about the M3 we’ll just have to let you wait until the model will be presented at the 2011 Essen Motor Show, along with the 1-Series, 3-Series, X5, X6, X5 M and X6 M. The automotive event will take place between November 26 and December 4, 2011.
