BMW introduces 440HP V6 engine from 2012 for the future M3

According to some sources within the German manufacturer, the incoming BMW M3 F30 will benefit from a twin-turbo V6 3.3-liter engine able to develop about 440 horsepower. Instead of the V8 engine found on the M3 E92, the 2012 BMW M3 F30 will get the V6 propeller that benefits from two turbines and will be able to develop slightly more horses.

According to the same sources, the V6 engine expected to debut on the M3 F30 will be even lighter than the traditionally V8, a fact that can make us just happy as the extra power and the lower total mass will increase the power-to-weight ratio.

For now, we do not benefit from extra details on this rumors advanced by the Germans at BMW but as we determined above, we can expect from a better power-to-weight ratio, thus, better performance from the future M3 generation scheduled to enter the market somewhere in 2012.
