475bhp for all the new ‘M’ Cars immediately
BMW will provide their S58 engine with upgraded hardware and a power output at around 470 to 475 horsepower. The new engine will make its debut in the X3M and X4M, followed a couple of years later by the next generation M3/M4.
This will be the first time a BMW X3 M will be offered and fans of the brand and this particular model will surely be excited to see it finally materialize after years of waiting. The X3 M will actually be late to the game as its rivals from Audi and Mercedes-Benz already have performance versions out, in the shape of the Audi SQ5 and GLC63 AMG. The new X4 M will be powered by the same unit.
Also, the G80 BMW M3 could be the first BMW M car to feature a hybrid powertrain. It will get a 48-volt electric system, so it’s also possible that the new M3 will be a MHEV (Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle). This might anger many BMW die hard enthusiast but will go very well with the environmentalist.
