Audi and Mercedes have been pumping out high-performance versions of their RS and AMG variants, while BMW has been content with releasing M models with unique paint and additional standard equipment. That could soon be changing as BMW USA has hinted at releasing even more hardcore variants of their M lineup.

Speaking to former Automobile Magazine Road Test Editor Marc Noordeloos, BMW's PR team said "it will an interesting year" in regards to having an AMG Black Series competitor. The PR person went on to say Americans can expect one or two new special editions in the same vein as the M3 CSL, GTS and CRT.

The interview was conducted for an upcoming Automobile article, so expect to learn more in the coming weeks.
