Yas Marina Blue M3 caught undisguised during promotional shoot

Expected to make its official debut at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show in January, the BMW M3 has been fully unclothed thanks to an intrepid motorcyclist and a GoPro camera in Los Angeles.

The example M3 seen in the video is sporting Yas Marina Blue paint and seems to be identical from the A-pillar forward to the M4 coupe previously shown by BMW in Pebble Beach.

The M3 will be powered by a new 424 hp 3.0L twin-turbo six-cylinder engine mated to either a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. It will go on sale sometime in the summer of 2014.
