From german Autobild, interview with Ulrich Brunkhe. I dont speak german so I translated it with help from www.freetranslation.com. Since its translated with help of a internetsite the english is really bad.
I hope you understand it anyway.

The high number of revolutions draft that underlies these engines took its beginning with the row sixth cylinder of the current M3. No, this machine is yet long not ripe for the old part. "The motor is yet at least good for a further model generation", is happy Bruhnke. Is incorporated it in modified form (then fulfills it finally the EU-4-Abgasnorm) first of all in the M Roadster, that beginning 2005 celebrates in Detroit premiere. Two months drawing-room later stands motorized on the Genevan that correspondingly M coupé. In an unchanged Hubvolumen of 3.2 liters is to be reckoned with an achievement of about 340 HP.

Why does BMW not bring the M-version of the Z4 immediately with the bulligen V8? Because he does not want to cancel himself hineinpaßt, and because one the machine with the shorthand symbol S65B44 for the new M3. The fourth M3-Generation is supposed to be introduced first beginning 2007. The coupé that gets a car body independent totally makes the beginning. He who saw the two doors in the direct comparison to the four door, that understands the simulations to the subject of 4er-Reihe (so should the coupé of originally hot).

The V8-Motor is derived from the V10, that does in the M5 and M6 service. With officially not yet confirmed 425 HP, the 4,4-Liter-BMW-Aggregat lies achievement Transmission page it remains well in that next to one another of hand switch and SMG-Schaltbox.

BMW works overcharges would be to be sure also at a double coupling-transmission (DKG), that however at least in the first extension step with the more than 500 New sound meter torques of the M3-V8. As further car body variants, the coupé-Cabriolet and the Touring in the conversation are.

Already on the IAA 2005, the M-execution of the 5er Touring whose Hinterradaufhängung thoroughly had to be revised debut. The luxurious fast vehicle receives the Antriebsstrang with the 507 HP of strong 5,0-Liter-V10 of the saloon car. With the M5 Touring, the M-strategists venture an experiment – finally becomes the half of the M-production to America exported where Kombis as you know only weakly are inquired. By special request the US-customers a gearshift is developed for M5 and M6 by the way, that is supposed to be offered as required from end 2006 also in Europe. A further M-variant is the M6 Cabrio that might in the next spring anrollen.

What for audi the RS-models are and for Mercedes-Benz-AMG the Turbos that is for BMW of the CSL. More intelligently easy building creates the prerequisite for yet more sporting handling characteristics and yet better performances. In the future, also motor page intervention are conceivably – so should example manner of the M6 CSL (debuts summers 2006) a V10 with 5.5 liter Hubraum receive, that problem-free the 550-PS-Hürde 550-PS-Hürde HP 550-PS-Hürde HURDLE would be allowed to take. Also firmly is budgeted a M3 CSL (debut probably first 2008), in the insider with an achievement increase of maximally 25 HP calculate. "My specialty is the development of niche models", answers ask about Ulrich Bruhnke on that its most important mission. "We want with relatively slight means the palette expand, that sign profile of BMW sharpen and us of the normal series vehicles differentiate."

Which Antriebskonzepte do not fit to M, which? "The diesel does not be compatible hardly with our philosophy, but a sportingly positioned hybrid latch I from. Also in the Turbo, it would be incorrect to decline of beginning – finally became BMW with a Turbomotor Formel-1-Weltmeister (1983). You not here will see only a compressor – that promise I."

Does over future projects Ulrich Bruhnke not understandably want to speak – however how stand it with the subject super sports car? "That would become too many powers bundle." And the M1? "A nice Denkmodell..." – That very far thrived was.

The M1 should go originally namely already beginning 2007 in series, more weakly motorized quasi as an outrider for that coupé-variants that were budgeted first to the model year 2008. The basic data for the M1 are very promising: 3,2-Liter-Sechszylinder, 350 HP, zero until 100 km/h in 5.2 seconds, basis prices 40,000 Euro. Also the design is certain in coarse trains: new front jokes, darkly eloxierte five-star-wheels, large stern wing, other never and germinated.

Yet in the mean time this project enjoys no longer priority. So the 1er-Cabrio is preferred, and with 120ti and 120tis, first once two new strong four cylinder models with 190 and 225 (Turbo-)PS should come. So the top model of the little series would remain the 258 HP of strong 130i – that now in the autumn comes – first of all once. Until then the M1 anrollt. And on this little steam hammer, the fans wait very certainly not in vain.

So hold on now.. I think maybe we getting a little more confirmation of whats going on here..


3 seperate forums are now confirming reports from BMW M that the new 4.0L V8 is rated at 317 kW (425 bhp).. 2 of them saying 4.0L and one site still saying 4.4L...

This is awesome news..!! Still not the favoured 330kW but that should be good enough for a little fun!!

4.4L..?? Still think we will have to wait and see on that one.. I hope its a 9000 RPM 4.0L

M6 CSL next summer , 5.5 liters with 550hp. Later there will be M3 CSL with about 450hp.

Turbo might be an option in M cars in the future. Turbo is coming to standard bimmers.

There will be a M1 in the future but not a priority at the moment.

Manuel gearbox is coming to Europe as well, not only U.S.

A gearbox ala DSG is coming as well.

I hate to say I told you so... but I told you so. BMW will wait for the E90 M3 to release the v8, simply for status reasons and because M3 purchasers would expect to have the latest and greatest, not a "hand-me-down" engine from another car.
