M3 cabriolet coming (AUTOMEDIA)

A new version of one of the world's best-selling high-performance car is preparing for action - and we have the first pictures that prove it will also be coming as a high-performance four-seater cabrio.

We can reveal the all-new BMW M3 CC, after our spies caught the car with thin disguising testing at the German Nürburgring.

The next-generation M3 is the first V8-engined 3-Series, and offers 309kW - so expect it to race from 0-100 km/h in a fraction over five seconds, and go on to a limited top speed of 250 km/h.

Power will be fed to the rear wheels via a six speed manual gearbox or the latest SMG sequential manual, possibly with seven ratios.

Expect to see the M3 Cabrio to make its appearance at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
