BMW NA CEO Confirms Inline 6 Cylinder Engine for the M4 [Video]
Now, some of the journalists out there claimed that we might even see a V6 under the bonnet of the M4, a thought that is simply crazy. Not only BMW doesn't have a V6 in their current line-up, it would be sacrilege to put such an engine on an M car.
No! Ludwig Willisch, the President and CEO of BMW of North America, was recently recorded confirming the inline-6 configuration for the S55 engine that will soon be released, at an event launching the F15 X5 on the US market.
He was the president of the BMW M division before heading over the Atlantic to head the NA division of the Bavarian company, so we think he knows what's going to happen.
