To get that from a I6 will truly be an marvel of german engineering. More likely it would be a twin turbo V8. In that respect, I hope they keep the current S63 engine and modify it vs lets say shoving the engine from the 550i in an M3 body (hey they did it with the 1M in taking the Z4 N54 engine!)

A twin turbo V6? On paper, it works for Nissan GTR, but we are BMW fans, not Nissan fans. The workhorse I6 is what brought us to this flame. Don't cheat us mid flight!
