B8 Engine:

BMWs new and upcoming E92 BMW M3 marks the shift to V8 power after 15 years of six-cylinder power. The E46 M3s 3.2 liter straight-six was a legend, and is still being used by the current Z4 M Coupe and Roadster. The engine clinched the Engine of the Year award multiple times. It made 343hp in its latest edition. But in its main application in the M3, its time for it to bow and leave the stage and make way for its successor, the new BMW M V8 engine.

This new engine displaces 3,999cc and makes 420hp at 8,300rpm, It is a screamer, revving all the way to a redline of 8,400rpm. Torque peaks at 3,900rpm with 400 newton meters, with 340Nm available from as low as 2,000rpm. The new 4.0 liter V8 is also amazingly lighter than the 3.2 liter inline-6 it replaces, weighing in at a mere 202kg, 15kg lighter than the inline-6, despite an additional 2 cylinders and all the extra valvetrain parts for a 90 degree V-design.
