New 330P Vs. M3 E36?

Anonymous BMW employee tells Spies new 330P to outperform old M3 sedan
Our spies are EVERYWHERE


001,

I just read your story (from your archives) on the possibility of an M3 sedan. Here is what I know, the E-36 M3 coupe and sedan did not have the same engine as their european counterparts, this you know. The US E-46 M3 has the same M engine as the european version. There is extremely limited production capacity on the current M3 engine, because of that there are no plans in the near-term for an M3 sedan. However, starting with March 03 production BMW will be building a "sport version" of the 3-series sedan. This car will have 10 more hp for a total of 235, that is only 5 hp less than the E-36 M3, and I believe the new car will have more torque also. Obviously, that is a small number, but with other technological improvements over the E-36 M3 motor, this new sport version will undoubtedly outperform the E-36 M3 sedan. There are other significant suspension changes on this car also.

There is a lot more news about other changes to the 3-series, but I can't in good conscience reveal it, yet. You probably already know anyway.
