BMW had planned to wait on releasing news about the upcoming 3-Series Coupe, but some photos were leaked and published today. More news will follow next week, but what we know is that the 3-Series Coupe will initially be available in Europe with three gas engines and a diesel powerplant. The petrol engines are all in-line sixes. The 325i has the 2.5-liter 218-hp engine and sprints from 0-60 mph in 6.7 seconds; the 330i is equipped with the 272-hp 3.0-liter variant and accelerates to 60 mph in 5.8 second; and the 335i, with its 3.0-liter turbo engine with 306 hp, takes in 60 mph in only 5.3 seconds. Alle engines are limited to a top speed of 156 mph. The diesel is a 231-hp 3.0-liter. The new Coupe will arrive this summer, while next year a new M3 with a 4.0-liter V-8 and over 400 hp will be available.--Henny Hemmes
