Rumors: M5/M6 returning to V10, G31 M5 Touring and X1 M

Something BMW still comes up against in the US Market today. In which federalisation cost is not viable if only to sell only a few units.

I have no idea if the M4 GTS will come to the USA or remain Europe and Asia only, I do know that a strategy exists for the car of which all details and schematics are not fully known just rumours still waiting to be confirmed along with the next M5/M6 returning to an all new V10, the X1 M with 330PS and and the addition of a G31 M5 Touring due to strong sales of the Audi RS6 Avant in Continental Europe.

The X1 M ... Performance?! I can see here the engine from M235i with a little tune.
V10 TT for next M5/ M6.. Maybe in 2,5 to 3 years for sale.
What about the engine for M2?
As for M4 GTS we'll see an increase of ~30PS.. The most important thing here is the weight savings

I have no idea if the M4 GTS will come to the USA or remain Europe and Asia only, I do know that a strategy exists for the car of which all details and schematics are not fully known just rumours still waiting to be confirmed along with the next M5 , M6 , returning to an all new V10 , The X1 M with 330PS and and the addition of a G31 M5 Touring due to strong sales of the Audi RS6 Avant in Continental Europe.
I'll believe a new V10 in the G-generation M5 and M6 when I see it.

If it happens, I hope that opens the way for the return of a V8 in the G-M3 and M4.

(And yes, I did read the report of BMW pondering an I4 in the next M3/M4).

So I just read that there may be:

- an M4 GTS
- a smaller M car (X1M)
- a new V10 engine for the M5 and M6
- and M5 Touring

This is all brilliant and welcome news, but given upsizedbody-downsizedengine-turbo-wrongwheeldrive philosophy I have to ask has someone at BMW HQ had a funny turn?!

Next you'll be telling us they are working on an M8 McLaren competitor

It's the most exciting BMW news in the last 10 years hidden in this thread...if it's a NA unit. Hopefully it's a NA engine, either freestanding or a LaFerrari type of hybrid power unit. Please let this be true. If it's an FI V10 it's just meh, waste of money and weight savings.

I think an SC'd V10 might be pretty badass, personally

Wow that's great news. About time in my opinion.

On a separate note, can you comment on when the competition pack will be available for the F80 M3?

Well I hope they go for a true halo supercar instead of just a ~500 hp sports car.

V-10, would probably not be NA due to BMW's current emphasis on all petrol engines being turbocharged.
