The Next Grand Prix…er, M3




Someone please please please please puh-lea-he-he-heeeeze tell me those “designers” — and I use the term as loosely as possible — at BMW haven’t hired the guy responsible for the 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix. I ask because the new M3 coupe looks an awful lot like a Grand Prix rear-ended a Ford Five Hundred.

This is even worse than the Bangle-isation of the 7-series derriére from a few years ago. Mark my words: this will be the final straw that gets Bangle fired if this design sees the light of day.

Funny. The first thing I thought when I saw the spy photos was, “It looks like a Volvo S60.”

It’s the front end that does it. I don’t see any real Grand Prix stylings; to me, it looks like a Volvo cross with the Five Hundred.
