Hot on the heels of the arrival of a new M3, BMW has announced details of the four-door M3 Saloon.

While four generations of M3 have been built, this is only the second time an M3 Saloon has been offered. So what you get is scintillating performance for the junior executive with kids.

Like the Coupé, the engine in the new M3 Saloon develops a whopping 420bhp at an even more whopping 8,300rpm. The 4-litre V8 can propel the saloon to 62mph in 4.9 seconds and provides 22.8mpg on the combined cycle.
