Some more details have been shed on the 2014 BMW M3 thanks to leaked information.
As always, the M3 will be powerful and fast around the corners, while also preserving the cool look we have grown accustomed to.
According to the source, the 2014 BMW M3 will sport under the hood a six cylinder, 3.0 liter twin turbo engine that will be able to churn out some 450 Hp and 550 Nm of torque. Coupled with either a six speed or seven speed dual clutch gear box, the M3 will be able to achieve 100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds.
These numbers are provided not only by the engine, but also by the fact that BMW uses carbon fiber to keep the weight down. The German car maker thinks that technology has gotten to the point where carbon fiber can be manufactured cheaply enough to make its use more feasible. For the 2014 BMW M3, the lightweight material will be used in the vehicle’s roof, hood and trunk, bringing the weight down 100 kg compared to the last generation.
