The heart of the BMW M3 Sedan is the M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine. With its tremendous power and unmistakeable sound. Interplay between optimally tuned motorsport technologies permit a thrust of 317 kW (431 hp), which with the optional M Competition package can be increased still further to 331 kW (450 hp).

FROM 0 TO 100 IN 4.1 SECONDS.

The 3.0-litre M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine blends the best of two worlds: a high-revving character capable of up to 7,600 rpm, and superior power culminating in peak torque of 550 Nm. Bi-turbo direct injection and typical M fine tuning make sure the engine responds directly to even the slightest touch of the accelerator with vigorous thrust and confident traction. Numerous innovations such as sleeveless construction or a lighter, forged crankshaft build on the intelligent lightweight construction concept, improve dynamics and acceleration, reduce consumption and enable an optimum axle load distribution of almost 50:50. The reward: unprecedentedly agile handling that’s impressively underscored by the unmistakable sound of the M engine.
