Next BMW M3 will have at least 473bhp

Attached Image Here are some more updates for fans of the BMW M3. BMW M boss Markus Flasch has confirmed that the car will have the same new S58 engine that the German company is using in its X3 M and X4 M.

According to Car Magazine, this would mean that the sports sedan would have 473bhp in the standard model and 503 hp in the Competition variant thanks to a 3.0-litre turbocharged six-cylinder engine.

That said, the M3's torque figures still aren't a match as the C63 S variant has an impressive 700Nm while the M3 Competition variant 'makes do' with 599Nm.

Other than the all-wheel drive drivetrain that has been mentioned some time back, Flasch also mentioned that they "will also do rear-wheel drive cars, purer [editions] ones and have a manual stick shift.”
