BMW confirm the inline-6 engine for the new M3
It’s official! BMW North America have confirmed the use of an inline-six engine for the next M3. It was speculated that a V6 (V-configuration) was going to be used, one possibly downsized from the current M3′s V8 unit but that no longer is the case. To ensure the new inline-six isn’t a slouch, it is expected that it will receive forced induction in the form of two or even three turbos.
Regarding the transmission, a dual-clutch unit is expected with no clear word if a manual gearbox will see production. Let’s hope they consider a self-shifter as well!Explore posts in the same categories: Automotive comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
