Combining racing technology with everyday usability, the V8 high-rev engine is full of BMW M3 Coupé personality. Every component has been carefully optimised to result in this impressive set of figures: maximum output of up to 8,300 rpm, 309 kW (420 hp) and top torque of 400 Nm at 3,900 rpm. And that's not all, individual throttle butterflies, normally only found in race cars, allow for faster response and additional performance benefits - an absolute engineering highlight for a road car engine.
