First Video of 2013 BMW M3 (F80) On and Around Nurburgring in Performance Testing!

COMMENTS

Some weeeks ago we brought bring you the very first video of the 2013 BMW M3 sedan internally dubbed F80. We've now posted the first footage of F80 M3 prototypes on and around the Nurburgring and conducting high speed performance runs!




As you'd expect from an M3, the F80 prototype looks very planted and stable while being pushed around the Nurburgring. The video provides the best listen yet at the F80's engine/exhaust noise. And although we can tell with certainty that it's powered by a 6 cylinder engine (to be turbocharged), it's difficult to discern whether the engine is an inline or V configuration. BMW M CEO Dr. Nitschke recently stated that they wouldn't do a V6, but we've also been tipped otherwise. Keep in mind that the sounds you are hearing from the prototype are obviously not final. It's possible that little to no sound tuning has yet taken place.

The number and type of turbos to be used is also a topic of much speculation. Two or three turbos is likely, and could potentially include the use of electric turbo(s).

Regardless of what engine layout is eventually chosen, expect the next M3's power output to increase to roughly 450hp while having its weight reduced. Both DCT and manual transmission will be available.

Latest rumors suggest that BMW may possibly show the F80 M3 sedan as a concept car at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2012 with the car hitting (European) showroom floors in Autumn 2012. This would be a very ambitious rollout schedule and at this point we're more inclined to believe a market launch sometime in 2013, however.

Stay tuned for more information on the F80 M3 sedan and keep track of our ongoing coverage: http://www.bimmerpost.com/m3/f30m3/

Maseratti??

The mirrors of the M3 bore me. Look like Mercedes mirrors! E9x mirrors FTW....but of course the style of the mirrors would never deter me from a potential purchase.

These aren't the production mirrors. Production version will be sportier/sleeker, just as the F10 M5 had the standard F10 mirrors all throughout testing (and even when it debuted as a concept) but has sleeker ones on the production model.

Although exhaust sounds like it might be attached to a typical V6, a did hear a faint sound of the I6 "scream".

The S65 sounds so much better. Hoping the production M3/4 sounds much better than in this vid!

If I could get a dollar every time you have to mention this, I'd be able to buy an F30 M3 in full with the extra cash when released.

QFT!!

To everyone else:

About the sound - this is still a prototype so the sounds are not yet final of course. For all we know, they may not even have expended any efforts on sound tuning yet.

Have some faith that the fine M engineers will tune it to sound nice in the production model. This is the iconic M3 afterall, not some rust bucket they're developing
