The British car magazine Auto Express is reporting that the next generation of the BMW M3 will be lighter and powerful than the actual one. The new sport sedan will come with a special design.
The Bavarian model will get a "blade" front bumper, ventilated front fenders, aerodynamic door mirrors, new side skirts and a trunk mounted spoiler. The power will come from a twin-turbo 3.0 liter unit that develops approximately 450 horsepower and 550 Nm peek of torque.
The resources will be put to the ground via a six speed manual or via a seven speed dual clutch transmission. The sprint from stand still to 100 km/h will be done in 4.2 seconds and the top speed will be electronically limited to 250 km/h.
The weight of the new BMW M3 will drop with almost 100 kilograms thanks to the use of carbon fiber components.Source: WCF | Auto Express | Automedia
