Lightbulb Rumor: F30/F32 M3 to Get Tri-Turbo V6 Engine

So far it seems clear, that the engine of the new M3 would be based on the N55 R6 ... with two possibility that are discussed ... a 3.0ltr. BiTurbo and a 3.5ltr. TriTurbo.

But now there are now rumors in german forums (from someone who has been known to have some good connections to BMW M) that there is an possibilty that the M-GmbH has changed their mind to an totally new and for many totally surprising engine layout .. but a logical one:

a 3.3L V6 with 3 Turbos !!! (one general turbo, plus two turbos dedicated to 3-cylinders each)

... there is furthermore the yet not from anyone realized TriTurbo Issue but the rest seems logical ... taking the new M5 4.4ltr. V8 and taking 2 cylinderrs away and you getting an potent 3.3ltr. V6.
