AFAIK, all the M engines are 4 valves per cylinder with DOHC (on each bank - if it's a V engine)
5 valves per cylinder is not much more efficient as compared to the 4 valves per cylinder engine...

It's pretty much in the development stages now. Or maybe it's "under wraps" so there is no finalized info..

Anything over inline 6's aren't really used for anything other then large boat and train engines. I've seen an old Mercedes with an inline 8 and the front end was huge.

The V10 with 500ish hp is what is in the works at the moment.
