F80/F82/F83 M3 and M4 (2015 - Current)
F80 BMW M3 sedan, F82 BMW M4 coupe and F83 M4 convertible forum. This 5th generation M3 and all new M4 features a 3.0 liter twin turbo engine (engine code S55) 425hp and 406lbs of torque! Heavy use of light weight materials makes this generation lighter and faster then the outgoing E9x M3.

I'll be the first one to say it: I was wrong.

I wasn't even thinking about diesels in this discussion, but here we are with a tri-turbo diesel M-badged engine. I don't yet understand the the actual rationale behind the third turbocharger, but points go to the OP for being right about the core facts where I was wrong in my dismissiveness.

"F8X engine pretty much established
With today's announcement of the new try-turbo INLINE 6 engine, I think it's safe to assume the F8X engine will migrate to a tri-turbo inline 6 petrol engine as well. Anybody have any thoughts on this?

Though, I'm still irked if they call it an M4, but I'm willing to accept that so long as the engine for the most part stays true to BMW's heritage.

...and it is definite, confirmed that the F8x M3 will be a Tri-Turbo inline 6
Stock 450 HP and with the "Performance Pak" option (much like the AMG one)...485 HP
They said the "spy" photos are meaningless at this point, and do NOT reflect the design the F8x will end up as. Right now is is camouflaged and made to look much like a stock 3 series...
...but expect it to change 3 or 4 times before launch!
Can very well end up with another redesign of hood with vents & Power Dome
Wider body & signature quad pipes with diffuser.
