Similar to its predecessors that introduced a new engine, the fourth generation of the M3 did the same and marked the debut of the BMW S65 V8 engine. The engine generates a maximum power output of 420 PS (309 kW; 414 hp) at 8,300 rpm,with a peak torque of 400 N⋅m (295 lb⋅ft) at 3,900 rpm.A 6-speed manual transmission was included as standard. As of April 2008, BMW offered a new 7-speed Getrag double-clutch paddle shift transmission,called M-DKG (Doppel-Kupplungs-Getriebe) or M-DCT (Double Clutch Transmission) as an option, which reduces shift pauses to less than a tenth of a second and shortens the car's 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) acceleration time by 0.2 seconds vs. the car equipped with a manual transmission.The E92 M3 coupé inherited a carbon-fibre roof similar to the one used on the E46 CSL. For 2011, the E92 M3 received a model refresh commonly referred to as a LCI (Life Cycle Impulse) by BMW. Those changes included minor interior trim pieces and LED rear tail-lights. Testing by Car and Drivermagazine has shown that the 2011 M3 equipped with an M-DCT transmission accelerated from 0–60 mph (97 km/h) in 3.9 seconds and went on to record a 12.4-second quarter-mile time.This is almost half a second quicker than 2008–2010 M3 models with the same engine and transmission.The E93 convertible version joined the M3 lineup shortly after the E92's launch, and is based directly on the M3 Coupé. The convertible uses a power retractable hardtop which adds 200 kg (441 lb) to the weight of the car, bringing the total to 1,810 kg (3,990 lb)with a negative impact on the convertible's overall performance. The convertible features a special leather surface for the seats that reflects sunlight. This reduces the tendency of the seats to become uncomfortably hot with the top down.
