With all the buzz created around the Detroit auto show, we almost missed this leaked photos of the new BMW M3 Cabrio. Powered by a 420 hp engine with 400 Nm of torque, the M3 will sprint from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 5.3 seconds, 0.4 seconds slower than the M3 Coupe. That’s because of the heavy retractable roof (which opens and closes in 22 seconds). A premiere on the M3 will be the new ‘M DKG’ 7 speed transmission with double clutch.
The BMW M3 Cabrio is scheduled to debut at the Geneva Motor Show, in March. Check out more leaked photos after the jump.
