BMW M Festival has officially kicked off tonight with M Night, where we participated in the first public viewing of the 2012 BMW M5 and the just revealed BMW M3 CRT [Official Info Thread].

The event took place in BMW’s building at the Nurburgring track. The building itself had stadium seating on the side of the building facing the track to observe cars and races running on the famed ‘ring’. The event took place on the ground level in the event hall.

Brian Watts, BMW M GmbH’s General Manager Sales and Marketing, provided the english language details to each of the two cars.

We bring you the latest spyshots of the BMW E90 M3 Lightweight model allegedly called M3 EVO. BMW is performing last tests on the Nürburgring prior to the offical unveiling at the M Night on June 23rd. BMW allowed us an early glimpse at the car back in April. The M3 EVO is said to be slotted between a regular E9x M3 and the extreme M3 GTS. Powered by the already famous S65 V8 engine, we expect an output in the neighborhood of 440hp. BMW will use the M3 EVO to showcase the increasing use of lightweight materials and parts, such as lightweight seats and brake discs, among other things. Despite all the weight-saving, the M3 EVO will retain its practicality – seating 4 adults … CONTINUED

Dedicated front spoiler lip and rear spoiler supposedly made from some lightweight material, 6-piston lightweight brakes (more info), and a unique color what we suppose is a non-metallic Interlagos Blue.

The M3 EVO is said to sit between a regular E9x M3 and the extreme M3 GTS, meaning the M3 EVO will retain to seat … CONTINUED
