|Information about the 2 Series-based M2 is beginning to trickle out of BMW M's command center in Garching, including the news that its power may come from a new small-displacement in-line six-cylinder engine that just might do away with camshafts in favor of electronically operated valves. Expect this new M special in 2006.|
|Responding to the credible threat posed by the V8 Audi S4, the next-generation M3, based on the E90 3 Series, will be V8 powered. It will be available--at least in Europe--in sedan, convertible, and sport-wagon configurations. A launch date in 2006 is anticipated for the coupe, with other models to follow in 2007. Since marketing plans call for E90 coupes and convertibles to form the basis of the new 4 Series, will BMW forsake the M3 icon nameplate and re-badge these as M4s?|

what was the projected HP for the new M3? something like 400HP , so what are they using? the E39 M5 engine? that will be impressive seeing is how they used to use that same combo in racing.
