We already knew about BMW’s new M4.  It was officially unveiled by the German Automaker back in August at Pebble Beach.  Now, images of the new M3 sedan have leaked and here they are for your perusal.

Like the M4 that we saw a few months ago, the M3 Sedan has been outfitted with a similar front and back fascia.  There is also the same protruding bubble in the hood and a roofline that seems to have received a “number 1″ trim down the middle with a pair of clippers.  Really there is nothing bad I can say about the new M3, with the exception that it’s still a sedan and not nearly as exciting at the M4.

Power wise, leaks points to a twin turbo inline 6 that produces well north of 400 ponies. Color options should be exclusive the M series cars, and those that are purists can opt for a 6-speed manual over the 7 or 8 speed dual-clutch.  19-inch 5 spoke wheels are stock, though I’d expect enthusiast to replace those with larger ones, especially since 20s have become the status quo.

Expect a full and official unveiling at the Detroit Auto Show, which starts January 13th.
