I wouldn't be surprised if it's the same engine in the new M3 which would be disappointing in that we wouldn't see a new engine, but the 1M engine is nothing to cry about.
Huh? It says right there in the article that the M3/M4 engine is called the S55. The 1M has the N54 engine.
Definitely different and more powerful engine for the next M3 and M4 compared to the 1M.
