The current generation BMW M3 Coupe went into production in 2007, and now, 40,000 units later the company announced the model was officially taken out of production. Next to these M3 Coupe units, BMW also sold a total of 10,000 sedans and 16,000 convertible units which will remain into production until September 2013.
During the car’s six years of production, the most important markets were the U.S.A, Great Britain and Germany. Special versions launched during the years includes an art car developed by U.S. artist Jeff Koons, an M3 GT2 raced in the American Le Mans series where it obtained five titles and a victory at the Nurburgring 24-hour race.
Since 2007 BMW received no major updates, and under the hood it retained the same V-8 engine.
The BMW M3 Coupe will be replaced by the future BMW M4 Coupe.
