Today we get an important piece of information on the 2014 BMW M3, a model which is scheduled to be unveiled somewhere next year.
According to BimmerPost, the new model will come with an improved total mass thanks to a series of carbon fiber parts such as the hood and roof.
Moreover, under the hood we will very likely see a twin-turbo six-cylinder engine producing more than 425 horsepower and 501Nm of torque. The same powerplant is rumored to be offered with the upcoming BMW M4 Coupe as well.
Power will be transferred to the wheels thanks to a standard six-speed manual gearbox while the seven-speed DCT transmission will be offered as well.
We find these details quite unsurprising as the debut date for the aforementioned models get closer and closer. Of course, we have no official confirmation from BMW yet but we doubt that this precious information is not based on some official specs.
