The UK TV Motoring show Fifth Gear's Vicki Butler-Henderson, a proper race car driver give the BMW M3 GTS a spin around the track.

Jay Leno's review of the 2011 M3

Love him or hate him and sporting his Canadian tuxedo, Jay Leno puts together this great review of the M3 and BMW's racing heritage. I particularly liked the segment on the BMW Motorsport team at the ALMS race. By the way Mr. Leno, it's 414hp not 444hp. :p Video: http://widget.nbc.com/videos/nbcshort_at.swf?CXNID=1000004.10045NXC&widID=4727a250e66f9723&clipID=1232499&showID=78 Pictures and Video: http://www.jaylenosgarage.com/at-the-garage/sports-cars/2011-bmw-m3/...

It's not a secret anymore that the next-generation Bmw M3, which will hit the market in 2012, will lose its V8 engine in favor of a smaller and more powerful V6. We found out from our German sources that the next-generation Bmw M3 will receive a twin-turbo 3.3-liter V6 engine capable to deliver around 440 hp. Still, the new car will also be lighter than the current model. For those who don't know, the current Bmw M3 model comes with a 4.0-liter V8 engine delivering 309 kW/420 hp. Power is...

The new RS5 is one of the best front-engined Audis ever. The firm has found new-found levels of throttle adjustability and a near GT-R level of drivetrain complexity. But is it good enough to topple the BMW M3?
