In a recent interview, Dr Friedrich Nitschke revealed new details about the 2014 BMW M3. Full coverage inside

New details are starting to emerge about the 2014 BMW M3 as Auto Express recently sat down for an interview with Dr Friedrich Nitschke - the managing director of M GmbH.

The executive was reluctant to discuss specifics, but said the next-generation M3 would have a "bigger focus on very low fuel consumption." That's a tad vague, but the magazine says the car will feature a tri-turbocharged 3.3-liter six-cylinder engine with approximately 450 hp (336 kW / 456 PS). Additionally, we can expect aggressive styling and a lightweight body that adopts carbon fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) components.

Besides talking about the M3, Nitschke revealed a Z4 M is "something we could do easily" and an M1 revival is possible. More interestingly, Auto Express says a 1-Series M CSL is under development and could draw inspiration from the tii concept.
