BMW F30 M3 Spied!

 

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!
