BMW has won the big prize with the two one-off hot models, the M3 Sedan and the M4 Coupe and it seems that the German based carmaker is currently working on a new-gen model, at least for the M3 sports car, which is believed to be released somewhere in 2018.
The news have not been yet confirmed, but some reports concluded that the new-gen BMW M3 will come with a choice of new performance goodies, while the engine under the hood is also believed to be receiving some upgrades.
According to the reports, the new-gen BMW M3 Sedan will come with a lot of new performance parts, like the new adaptive suspension and all-wheel drive system, beefier brakes and some more.
Under the hood, the new BMW M3 might lose the 3.0-liter twin turbo six-cylinder unit, in the favor of the new 2.0- and the 3.0-liter turbocharged gasoline and diesel engines, developing somewhere between 450 horsepower and 500 horsepower. The 1.5-liter three-cylinder engines are also likely to be introduced on the model.
So we should expect a much more powerful BMW M3 in terms of performance, as opposed to the present model which is still in the cards, with its 3.0-liter twin turbo six-cylinder unit, churning out 431 horsepower and 550 Nm of torque. Stay tuned for fresh news!
