BMW's new 3 series coupe - pictured here for the first time -will initially be available in two versions, the 323Ci and the 328Ci. The cars will be launched in April 1999, almost exactly a year after the arrival of the redesigned 3 series sedan. The coupe range will be extended when the 320Ci debuts in June. A 318Ci derivative will follow in spring 2000. The coupe uses the four-and six-cylinder engines that were developed for the new 3 series sedan.
