Officially Official: 2011 BMW 335is [w/video]

2011 BMW 335is - Click above for high-res image gallery. Follow the jump to watch video.

Well, you all knew it was coming, so Bimmer made it official: Yes, there is a 2011 BMW 335is, and it'll make its formal debut at the New York Auto Show in late March. The 335is will be available in either coupe (base MSRP $50,525) or convertible (base MSRP $59,075 - ouch!) body styles.

Power is boosted to 320 horses and 332 lb-ft of torque (versus 300 hp/300 lb-ft in the regular 335i) for the reprogrammed N54 twin-turbo I-6, which also benefits from an upgraded cooling system and exhales via a sport exhaust for added audible snarl. BMW also says that the 335is torque number can be temporarily overboosted to 370 lb-ft under certain conditions. A six-speed manual is standard, with the seven-speed DCT available as the optional transmission.

Visually, the BMW 335is is distinguishable by its altered front fascia, which features larger intake openings, and an integrated rear diffuser. On top of that, the car is sprinkled with goodies from BMW's M Sport catalog inside and out. If the standard 335i isn't enough for you, and the M3 is too much (as if there is such a thing), perhaps the 335is is just the right fix for your performance jones. We're looking forward to finding out ourselves once the car arrives in showrooms this spring.

Check out the high-res images of the car on-track at Estoril below, and follow the jump for video of it in action (plus BMW's customarily lengthy press release).
