Lightweight BMW M3 Sedan - Click above for high-res image gallery

In addition to officially debuting the M3 pickup here in Munich, BMW trotted out a lightweight version of the M3 sedan before its debut at the M Festival at the 24 Hours of Nürburgring race later this year.

BMW is mum on the exact details on this stripped-out sedan, only saying that it's designed to slot in between the standard model and the race-ready GTS coupe. Output should remain close to the standard 420 horsepower, but the brakes, suspension and exhaust will be tweaked for maximum performance. There's no word on how many pounds the M division stripped from the sedan and U.S. availability, but we should have all the details when the big 'Ring race happens this June. And no, this isn't an April Fools joke.
