The F80 M3 forges ahead with testing at the Nurburgring. We've got it on video giving us probably the best listen so far at the F80 M3's multi-turbo inline 6.

If you recall, we recently reported on information gleaned from the M4 prototype's registered VIN information (see here).

According to the VIN info, the M3 will be powered by a 310kW (415 hp) 3.0L inline 6 engine (s55) [photos]. Consistent with the information we've been posting, this would have the next M3 and M4 featuring similar horsepower figures to the current M3 (414 hp) from the 3.0L inline 6 multi-turbo s55 engine. But, we've also been previously told by trusty sources familiar with F80/F82 development that the cars will boast approximately 100 lb-ft more torque (in range of 395 lb-ft) (source) and nearly 8000 RPM redline (source).

As always, keep up with the latest M3/M4 news and features on our homepage: http://www.bimmerpost.com/m3/f80m3/
