Iacoski has come up with one of the more interesting F80 M3 renderings we’ve seen. There have been a number of different ideas that take on the question of what the highly anticipated coupé will look like. We presented a number of different ideas for the sedan also in recent posts. However, this design gives the M3 a more bloated front end as well as a more aggressive front bumper and a different side air intake.
Many expect BMW to down-grade with the 2013 F80 M3 so expect to see something like a twin-turbo 3.5 liter V6 engine. 450 horsepower should be available from this unit. Interestingly, Bimmerpost recently uncovered some patent drawings for a BMW V6 featuring a sequential turbocharging layout. The drawings suggest that exhaust fumes from all six-cylinders are routed into one turbocharger and then either into the exhaust, or through another larger unit. Rumours also suggest that BMW could release the F80 Sedan in time for Summer 2013, before the M4 Coupé.
