The first test mules of the new M3 have surfaced. And, it’s the sedan. Interesting because all of the rumors going on, apparently BMW decided to cut the 3 series model line and ditch the coupe and convertible. Instead these models will be called the BMW 4 series. These pictures show an F30 3-series sedan with several trademark M3 features such as quad-exhaust, flared fenders and drilled brake discs.
And just like the V10(S85) we now have to say goodbye to the V8 because the next M3 is rumored to get a V6 powerplant, powered by 3(!) turbo’s, A 450 PS (331 kW / 444 bhp) triple-turbo 3.2 liter six-cylinder. All in the name of fuel emission regulations. But a triple turbo sure sounds exiting!
