BMW Could Be Working On Quad-Turbo V8 Supercar With McLaren
Car Magazine are reporting that BMW is in the process of developing a brand new mid-engined V8 supercar with the help of the British powerhouse, McLaren. It is being said that the car could be put into production after showing its face at the Frankfurt Motor Show in just 2 years time.
Car Magazine claims that the new BMW in model will be underpinned by the same carbon fibre monocoque as the next-generation McLaren 650S. In terms of power, BMW has apparently opted for its very own 4.0-litre V8 engine boosted by four turbochargers two of which will be exhaust-driven while two others will be electric turbos. All told, it should pump out 750 hp at a bare minimum. Remember that McLaren and BMW have done collaboration work before and it was none other than the iconic McLaren F1 which featured a V12 from BMW. This is one hell of an exciting vehicle and I can only hope that things progress smoothly between the two manufacturers. The renderings below were done by Andrei Avararii.
