BMW has just released a selection of teaser images of what appears to be a new special edition M3 model, destined to be a U.S.-only vehicle. That’s exciting news, as the last time BMW dropped a U.S.-spec special edition it was the potent 335is. And it’s not like we don’t deserve it either, after BMW stiffed us on the M3 GTS.

The photos don’t really tell us much, other than it’s an M car and that is has a dual-clutch transmission.

Recently BMW did introduce the M Competition Package, so here’s hoping for a new M3 with a few extra ponies from the 4.0-liter V8.

From the looks of things, there’s definitely a dual-clutch cog box at play, though it’s unclear if that will be the only option. Now the only question is whether the company will tweak the V8 found in the M3 or whether it will leave it alone and instead make other upgrades, and there’s also the question of which bodystyle(s) the car will be available with, as the M3 is currently available in coupe, sedan, and convertible form. Keep your ears pinned back for more information later in the week. Until then, let your imagination run wild.
