The place to find press releases from Concorde Auto Centre and what's new in the automotive services industry
The end of an era

It had to be orange. Of all the colours the last BMW M3 Coupe could have been, orange feels the most correct. This is because BMW has announced production of the ‘E92' M3 Coupe is over, and orange is the colour of the very last one.
A moment of silence then, for the end of a modern performance hero. It's the car, don't forget, that prompted Top Gears Jeremy Clarkson to don his finest Bluetooth earpiece and announce that the V8 M3 Coupe was in fact, "a masterpiece".
And what a V8. A lot of adenoids burst when BMW first launched the new M3 in 2007, because gone was the old 3.2-litre straight-six - a shrieking masterstroke of combustion - and in came a 4.0-litre V8..
It produced 420bhp and 295lb ft of torque, could hit 0-62mph in 4.8 seconds (4.6 with the double-clutch auto ‘box) and was good for a limited top speed of 155mph. It also won the 3.0-litre to 4.0-litre class of the International Engine of the Year Awards five times in a row, and when provoked, made a sound good enough to make parts of your anatomy fizz.
But if orange is your colour, there’s no need to be too upset. Book your car into one of Concorde Auto Centre’s service centres (Peterborough, Leicester and Wisbech) and take advantage of our fabulous courtesy car facility. One of your choices will be a shiny new BMW series 1, and yes, it comes in orange.
