Question Have any of you heard of the new BMW supercar?

Okay I saw some pics of it, in one of the issues of Motor Trend. I think that it says that the car will be released as an 05 model. The powerplant will be either a, super-modded I-6 or an M5 engine that will produce around 600bhp so it'll defenetly be an exotic, the problem is, that I lost the magazine where the article was and I want to learn more about it. Have any of you heard aobut it? Can anyone tell me about it? Please, I want to know.. THX.

Whow, that car must have a compression ratio of 30.1:1 if it's a NA 6cyl. 20,000rpm's to play with and the real power can be felt at 15,000rpm

Yeah, I hear the M6 is going to be the fastest car BMW has made. That means it's gonna beat the Z8 Which I find as a real task in itself.. but with the new V10's anything is possible.

any BMW is a supercar in my opinion
But I'm looking forward to those new ones too, although I'm not a fan of the new styling..
