We've been told that he has a Mohawk but many keep speculating that he has a Keith Flint shaped haircut.

AFAIK the race SLR Benz from the 50s is the only post war straight 8..(?)

In terms of practicality the size was too long to shoehorn it under the hood/bonnet and the crankshaft(because of its length) could/and would break under stress...

So it won't be a inline 8 I'm pretty sure...

300SLR. Probably the greatest sportcar ever together with the 250 GTO, McLaren F1 and Ferrari F40

Its just his head catching the light from the projector of course (you can see the shadow it makes on the screen), but what's funny is it actually looks like he's wearing a tinfoil hat.

I was told that it was indeed a tri-turbo and that this information has already been sent out on informatics to the dealers... but could still end up being the alpina engine aMplified.

I think the debate now is power to weight ratio, just how much carbon fiber is in it, will it have the 8 M-DCT or 7 as suggested before, electric third turbo? and will it smoke a carrera s or C7 vette. Oh and will they offer AWD for icier climates.

And hopefully it comes with ethanol resistant injectors and hpfp

Lol, that was my first thought, wtf is he wearing a tinfoil hat! This hologram hat and the comments here has been better than the I6 confirmation, what better way to start a Monday morning than some action.

I am looking forward to ordering my White M3 Sedan in June 2015 (want a full year to flush out bugs). If it is a V6 - Forget it!

1 twin-scroll for the low-end along with 1 larger (sequential?)turbo for the latter half of the band. My guess is something like that.

I'm guessing it's grey hair doing something weird with the screen right behind his head. But it that's a glowing hat it does tend to undermines his claims about the motor.
It's likely pre production camo, his head will be revealed end of Sept.

I'm shure you did not want to express this in your argumentation... but you're absolutely right! For achieving these ambitious goals a V6 would be the more intelligent, more obvious and more sensible way to do it!

Unfortunately the main key fact nobody discussed yet: If we get a capacity beyond 3L (and I was told so, so were many other in Germany with good contacts into the M/GmbH), we won't get an I6! We won't get a turbocharged S54... Quite simple, isn't it?

If it's got 3 turbos it could be called Hex Power... either way I'm sure we'll see curses with Ingolstadt drivers.
