2014 BMW M3 expectations ahead of 2013 unveil

By Updated on

The 2014 BMW M3 sedan is to get a complete redesign, and many fans of the German car brand will tell you that it’s long overdue. The all-new model is one of the most anticipated cars, and for good reason, as they represent the technical advancements in performance and handling for what is essentially a business/family car on the outside, albeit a few design flares here and there.

2014 BMW M3 expectations – We’ve already seen several photos appear online, and we have to say the changes do look pleasing on the eye, and so it will be worth the wait. Expectations are very high for the new model, and so it looks as though BMW may have already cleared the first hurdle, which is the exterior design.

Possible 2014 BMW M3 specs – The new model is expected to come with a smaller 3.0-liter, twin-turbocharged inline-six engine, compared to the current 4.0-liter V8. However, even though the powerplant is smaller, it packs 36 horsepower more, and so will be able to produce 450 horsepower, which is almost on par with the 2013 Corvette Stingray.

The power-to-weight ratio will also be far greater than the current M3, as the 2014 version will be much lighter, and so much easier for that more powerful engine to push around. We’re not too certain on the transmission, but there’s a possibility that it will come with a dual clutch transmission, along with a choice of manual, which gives the driver the feeling of more control.

2014 BMW M3 performance – If we are to believe these improvements, then we can expect the all-new BMW M3 to have a 0-62 mph time of 4.3 seconds and a limited top speed of 155 mph. However, if the limiter were switched off then the 2014 BMW M3 top speed would be 180 mph instead. If you are looking for something a bit larger than the all-new M3, then maybe you should consider the upcoming M5 model instead.
