The BMW auto manufacturer is rumored to put some four-cylinder engines on the M3 Coupe and M4 Sedan.
The announcement hasn’t been yet confirmed, but this would be a normal step that the company would take next, since the two versions are coming with a six-cylinder unit.
Carsten Pries, the BMW M Head of Product Management let everybody understood that there is the possibility of powering the future M3 and M4 with a four-cylinder unit.
The planning of using a four-cylinder unit instead of the current six-cylinder are considered to be positive for the two versions, since the first one would be more lighter and much faster with two turbochargers.
The present M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe are currently powered by the same 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder unit, which develops a great output of 431 horsepower and huge 550 N of torque.
The unit and the power as well, help the supercars reach the 0 to 100 km/h mileage in just 4.1 seconds, with the M3 and M4 having an electronically limited speed at 250 km/h.
