Test Drive: 2008 BMW M3
Buckle-up and hold on tight as SPEED takes you on an all-new Test Drive of the 2008 BMW M3! This 4.0-liter, V-8, rear-wheel drive beauty comes stock with 414 horsepower. Tune in for the premiere March 25th only on SPEED!

Racers Tommy Kendall,, Boris Said, John Andretti and Graham Rahal will put the new BMW M3 through its paces, as the four compete in “the Ultimate Driver Challenge” as part of a special edition of the long-running SPEED series Test Drive. The one-hour program will premiere March 25 at 8 p.m. ET.

”As the Test Drive franchise has grown and matured, it has evolved into a truly international series placing some of the world’s best cars into the hands of some of its most skilled and accomplished drivers,” said SPEED Vice President Bobby Akin. “This latest installment raises that bar even higher.”

The competition will include challenges through a slalom run, lane changes, braking, skid pad performance and autocross competition, with the winner being awarded a $10,750 Girard-Perregaux watch.

As part of the program, SPEED viewers will visit BMW M in Munich, gaining insight into the engineering and development of the new BMW M3, including riding along for a test drive on Germany’s autobahn.

With the M3's first ever V8, variable double-VANOS camshaft control, and the ability to go from 0-60 in 4.8 seconds, this high-performance sports car brings a little bit of the racetrack to the road.
