Here’s a first look at BMW’s E92 M3 ALMS race car, which “bumps the power quotient of its high-revving 4.0L V8 from 414 to 485 ponies.” Video after the break. Click here for first picture in gallery.

But with introduction of the E92 M3, BMW is free to race with a V8 unrestricted and announced their racing program in cooperation with Rahal Letterman Racing, as well as unveiling a new racecar at the Chicago Auto Show this year.

WebRidesTV pits “BMW’s new M3 against a Dinan-tuned 335i coupe.” Though it may seem equal, “you can’t ignore the allure of the Dinan 335i’s torque and lower curb weight.” Video after the break.

Inside Line pits the 2008 BMW M3 coupe against the 2008 Audi S5 coupe in this comparison test. Which vehicle comes out on top? Find out after the break. Click here for first picture in gallery. Here’s the bottom line:
