H/w that doesn't mean it's concept-ready or show-ready underneath, it could just be one of those preproduction mules with a little more engineering for those execs to scrutinize.
You're wasting your see through vision on these forums mate. I'd be camped outside a modeling agency if I had that ability.

It was spotted with bigger/ better brakes already, the engine is in the "fine tuning" phase of development, so no worries for the moment that the next model will not keep its crown

Truth. People seem to have gotten so complacent with the S65 that anything less than 8 cylinders is deemed "week".

BMW needs to take notes from Vishnu. A good tune with a big single should be putting down around 550 RWHP and around 500 foot pounds... Is anyone taking odds on n54 vs n55 for the new M3 considering BMW put the n54 in the 1M and the 335is over the n55? Unless they did some major upgrades to the n55 and if so, I doubt they would keep the n55 engine code. Any thoughts?

I seriously doubt the veracity of some of this. What will be common with the n55, the block alone or a bored out version of the block with larger displacement?? Probably almost all internals would be different. It is terrible marketing and the car has a much poorer chance of success if it is called an revamped n55 or if that is actually what it is. There is simply no way they will lightly tweak the n55 change the boost and call it a day. As stated earlier the n55 share a ton with the n54 and that engine is too old to be reusing that much of it.

That being said the poster about 3 engines for the entire line up is correct. Well maybe the number is not 3 exactly but this is BMWs plan - massive reuse of common components for many more models. This is their road to much more profits. Pure and simple.

Now at the same time I fully accept the veracity of the rumors that the car will have a relatively low CF content. I've been strongly promoting that argument here in this thread.

IF they re-use the N55 in the new M3 I'd laugh - what a downgrade from the wonderful, purpose-built V8!

I would ask some kids to sneak in and pull the tarp off. Can't get angry over some innocent kids right? Take some photos and rewards the kids with ice-cream. LOL but of course I'm no were near and have no idea which museum.

Revised N55? I hope it revs higher!

A little disappointed that we won't get light weight CFRP parts on the next M3.

Basically if you wanted the performance of an M-engine, you had to buy an M engine. Nothing you could do at the time it came out could make the M54 come anywhere near the S54. This was essentially as good as a purpose built M engine since it was not able to be duplicated.

Now to the present, an N54/55 can already be simply tuned to make 100's of horsepower more than we know the new m3 will make (450ish). You can easily buy a car that is 4 years old already (335 with n54) and spend 500 bucks and have more than 450 crank horsepower.

Not only can you match the horsepower but you also will have very similar delivery of power given the M engine will now be turbo which will eliminate the advantages of the current V8 which can also be "out-tuned" by a n54" but the S65 offers benefits that no tune in the world or mods of the n54 can offer.

So with all that said, when going FI, it is no longer good enough to "re-work" one of their turbo engines which already is capable of over 500 hp. Internals are plenty strong and you really give up nothing over an M engine except for a warranty.

Just like people same times are changing and FI is the future, I feel bwm also has to change and stop re-working the engines into M-engines. The only way they could continue to stand out would be to continue the trend of a new M3 engine. At the very least it needs to be larger displacement of 3.2-3.3 L which will give back its advantage over any 3.0 in terms of offering something that cannot be bought with a 500 dollar tune.

Pure power numbers will always be able to be bought with a few hundred bucks on these turbo engines so bmw needs to give the new m3 engine something that cannot be bought by every man and his dog with a n55 engine.

BMW S63

Bore 89.0 mm x Stoke 88.3 mm
560 PS @ 6.000-7.000 rpm
680 Nm @ 1.500-5.750 rpm

Mercedes M278

I totally agree! Although I still want to see what it looks like - Although I like what the F30s look like - I'm not convinced that they've nailed the design... But am open minded about what BMW can do!

I'm confused. Why are they displaying the F82 and not the F80 when the F32 hasen't been presented yet.

idk why everybody is so upset about the N55 block being used for the f80. It's a fine engine and it will be different. Turbo is the game right now and they will heavily modify the entire turbo system (from intake to exhaust). It will prob have a linear power curve all the way to 7K to mimic a NA feel in the upper revs, yet still have the flat torque curve from 1500-5000 rpm. Remember, this is a production sports sedan/coupe, not a tuner. I guarantee it's not going to be running some crazy high boost number, which will allow the car to make repeated runs.
