Serviced & InspectedThen came the next-generation M3 in early 2001 with its hot-blooded Euro motor. This most exotic version of BMW's in-line six displaced 3246cc and revved to 8000 rpm developing a peak of 333 horsepowerenough to slice a second from the old M3's 0-to-60 and quarter-mile times. Would this engine which produces 102.6 horsepower per liter survive everyday use? Your humble servants on Hogback Road resolved to find out. Our M3 arrived in July 2001 and quickly captivated the hotshoes in the office with its amazing acceleration and sure-footed handling. With 1940 miles on it we took the M3 to the test track and measured a 0-to-60 time of 4.5 seconds and a standing quarter-mile of 13.1 seconds at 107 mph. The electric-blue M3 also showed great grip managing 0.87 g on the skidpad and stopping from 70 mph in 161 feet. Not bad for a car that can hold four adults and a decent load of luggage.
