From the factory the M3 is powered by a 414 HP 4.0 liter V8; however that did not stop the German tuners G-Power from making ridiculous amounts of power from the vehicle. With the addition of a supercharger they were able to make 635 HP.
The rationale behind the supercharger was to significantly increase the low end torque of the M3 as well as increase power throughout the entire RPM range. For those who are hesitant to boost a factory BMW engine, but still want more from a M3, G-Power has developed an engine swap package where they will transplant the 550 HP V10 from the M5 into the smaller and lighter M3. Now that’s a German muscle car.
