Under its bulging bonnet, the M3 will use a new six cylinder 3 litre twin-turbo engine. Unlike the M5’s reworked version of BMW’s 4.4 litre twin-turbo V8, the new engine will be used exclusively in M models, not appearing in any lesser cars.
Performance figures are expected to be around 450bhp, an increase of 30bhp over the 4 litre V8 in the current car. There will be an even bigger increase in the torque figure – potentially as much as 150Nm – taking the total to 550Nm at just 2,000rpm.
