Ac Schnitzer has presented a new model called S3 A.R.T. with 370 bhp. It reaches 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.7 s (!). Those who have complained of coupe's overweight what do you say now? The new M3 shouldn't have any trouble with reaching similar performance with its 340+ bhp. Watch out M5.

<i>: : Those who have complained of coupe's overweight what do you say now? <p>: We say how much $$?????<p><br>It does include all the goodies that A.C.S. is known for, but the engine alone is $45,000. In my humble opnion I think if the new M3 has 340hp stock I can not justify spending $45,000 on 30hp I would raather blow it for about $6000 and have 100hp more. Spend another 10k on wheels, body kit and the rest on High priced Hookers and Drugs.<br></i>

<i>: To supercharge the new (real) M3 engine will need a lot of time and money. The eu spec. engine currently pumping out 321HP and has a compression ratio of 11.5:1 So I guess the 340HP version will have at least the same compression which means the supercharger will have a hard time to pump a lot air into it. It could but how much more the engine will use ? If you end up gaining only 30-40HP and having a big noise and 6,000USD out of your pocket than I'd say let it go stock and spend the 6,000 on weight saving applications. That is the best way to speed up the car anyway : Don't stress the engine just make his life easier ! <br>Or you could blow the 6k on hookers too and they will blow you too ! <p><br> <br></i>
