Yes gentlemen, I read it today in a VERY RELIABLE and respectable magazine, apparently BMW is planning on a Z10 supercar, the 10 coming not from a series but from the 10 cylinders this monster will have at its disposal, basicly it is going to be a turbo charged version of the "V10 with valve tronic injection being prepared for the M5 sports sedan"
estimated figures are at 450KW and 700NM , BMW M is confident that it will break the 4 second 0-100 barrier and the "boys from Munich" plan on ignoring the 250km/h "gentlemen's agreement"

Sorry I do not have pics.

also to mention non Mercedes SLR or Audi Novi*something* can match the HP output of the Z10 I forgot the exact figures but I talk under correction when I say the Merc is 425KW while the Audi 445KW, please correct me, but I know both is under 450KW.

oh damn, i wasnt sure when i was calculating it, i remember converting kw into hp before but i just couldnt remember how exactly. 608hp is even better, lol, i hope the body will be lighter like they are making the new 5 series lighter.

I can't wait to see it. The Z8 was nice, but BMW needed something better and hopefully somewhat reminiscent of the M1

The M1 was turbo charged aswell, yes? so this would be in the spirit of the M1 if You ask me. I use to be against BMW M using turbo, but even though I am still a NA fan, I would really like to see this V10 turbo M power, that sounds good doesn't it hehe "BMW M power Turbo 5.0l V10" perhaps the 5.0 for less engine inertia, I would still like to see it use a 5.5 (for tuner purposes) one more interesting aspect is that the "std M5 V10" could be fitted with this turbo system as can the M6 if they are sharing engines as is rumoured. I'd like to see this engine shoved into a M coupe in 450KW form.

The M1 wasnt turbocharged actually. It had a normally aspirated verison of BMW's 3.5 I6 develpoing 277hp. Anyone else care to comment? I am pretty sure this is correct.
