Latest scoops say M1 would be limited to only six cylinders,so as not to compete with the M3/M4 duo. Unfortunately this limits the second generation M1 to ca 300hp,which actually isn't that much if the target weight goal (currently 3450lb and still rising..) isn't reset considerably lower!

Heck,it seems the Mk2 M1 will be much heavier than the larger and more powerful E36 M3!
