Next-generation F30 BMW M3 coming with a 3.3-liter V6 engine and 440 hp

It's not a secret anymore that the next-generation Bmw M3, which will hit the market in 2012, will lose its V8 engine in favor of a smaller and more powerful V6. We found out from our German sources that the next-generation Bmw M3 will receive a twin-turbo 3.3-liter V6 engine capable to deliver around 440 hp. Still, the new car will also be lighter than the current model. For those who don't know, the current Bmw M3 model comes with a 4.0-liter V8 engine delivering 309 kW/420 hp. Power is...

Touring/Wagon Fans - Spy pics of the F30 Touring

by Tim Jones on July 13, 2010 at 04:37:10 PM

While this test mule is too highly disguised to get any real sense of what the final looks of the F31 are going to be we can get a general sense of the size. It looks a hair bigger than the E91 wagon but that could be the swirl paint throwing me off. Based on the passenger giving us the peace sign it seems like BMW's test drivers are out having fun and maybe grabbing some McDs for lunch :) Who's going to be trading up to the F31 when it comes out?
