i8 gets 1.5L 3 cylinder with 231hp, 462hp 3.0L I6 coming?

Doing simple math and adding 2 of the i8 engines would yield a 3L 6 cylinder twin turbo and twin scroll engine with 462hp. A perfect engine for the F8X.

Am I too optimistic ?

Is the bore spacing identical to N55? Certainly shows BMW is not afraid of quite high specific outputs, this is higher than the Porsche 911 Turbo.

But not as high as the A45 AMG. 360BHP :2(litre) x 3(litre)= 540BHP....

For a N54/55 engine 450BHP should be peanuts...

Cheers

I'm not sure it'll be that high until the price gouging power pack version arrives in 3 years, but I do expect 440-450hp at release. While power to weight is key, I would feel a little cheated with a power bump of 1-10bhp that M3Post keeps rumoring. For the record, I've said for a year now I think it'll be c.440bhp.

Agree and like the M5 and 335i it will be underrated. I guess that begs two questions, will BMW actually quote 41X, 42X or 43X (in the US) and by how much will it be underrated...

Maybe they make it 444hp in celebration of the M4. 444 for the 4 makes 4 4s. Just don't give us 333hp in the M3. Wait wasn't that the E46...
