BMW F80 M3 winter testing

New details are starting to emerge or rather “leak out” about the 2014 BMW M3 as British car magazine Auto Express recently sat down for an interview with Dr Friedrich Nitschke, managing director of M GmbH. Dr. Nitschke was of course a bit reluctant to discuss specifics, he did note the next-generation M3 would have a “bigger focus on very low fuel consumption.”

That’s a tad vague, but the magazine says the car will feature a tri-turbocharged 3.3-litre six-cylinder engine with approximately 450 hp. Additionally, we can expect aggressive styling and a lightweight body that adopts carbon fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) components.

BMW M6 Gran Coupe spied

After a lot of speculating, BMW has finally answered the call of the Mercedes CLS63 AMG, which was one of the first in the market of the trending, sleek and powerful four door coupes. Expected to be powered by a derivative of the S63TU motor in the new M5, a twin-turbo 4.4L V8 (560HP), perhaps with an extra 20HP to compensate for the weight. With these figures BMW will take on the competition like the Aston Martin Rapide, Porsche Panamera and the Mercedes CLS63 AMG. It also won’t take long before Audi will join the luxury 4door coupe club with the rumored RS7.

The car in these photo’s seems to be the new San Marino Blue.

Judging from all the latest pictures the new M6 is just around the corner, and this time there will be 3 variants!
