Tightening EU CO2 emissions standards forced BMW to switch from a V8 to an inline 6-cylinder engine with turbocharging in their new M4. The enginewill develop about 430 HP and 'well over' 370 lb-ft of torque.

Check out the video below for more details on the new engine.

Nnice engine specs video.

I would miss the v8 but would really have to try out the new twin turbo 6 in the m4. Just want to see the difference between this set up and the N55.

I think I might miss having the extra torque a V8 does after looking at the M4/M3 torque curve. How big is the engines displacement? This video says 3-liters. I wonder if that means it's actually 3.0 liters or within the 3 liter range and possibly being anywhere between 3.0-3.9
