As super as BMW‘s vehicles may be, the Bavarian marque has yet to produce anything that could be called a ‘supercar.’ That could soon change, as rumours surface that Bimmer is looking to join forces with McLaren to build a new supercar.
According to reports, BMW is developing a mid-engined supercar with a 4.0 L V8 engine that will use four turbochargers (two exhaust driven, two electrically driven) to produce around 750 hp. Structurally, the model will be a sleek, two-seater coupe that will share its carbon fiber monocoque with McLaren’s P16. Each automaker will allegedly have their own version, differentiated by exterior designs.
The project reportedly hasn’t been given the green light for production yet, as talks are still on-going. If the world is indeed blessed with a BMW supercar, it’s not likely to hit the road until later in the decade.
