Rumor has it, BMW plans to unveil the 2014 M3 somtime next year. The 2014 model would be the newest generation of the most popular M model from the automaker.
Previously, several resources had stated that BMW was testing a V6 and an inline-six for the new M3, but nothing was mentioned which one would be the most likely. But recently, reports from InsideLine state that a highly advanced 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 is in development for the 2014 M3.
InsideLine states, “The new V6 will be the first to mount its two twin-scroll turbochargers within the vee-angle, mirroring the company’s 4.4-liter V8 design. This unique-to-BMW approach reduces the length of the inlet tract compared with a regular turbo-vee setup, helping to sharpen throttle response and minimizing heat buildup after air passes through the intercooler.”
Hopefully, JMK BMW will see this lovely new model in our showroom within the next year! We'll keep you posted.
