[Video] The BMW G80 M3 in Zanzibar Metallic, Goes on a Dyno

Recently, AutoTopNL bought an all-new G80 BMW M3 in manual transmission in a Zanzibar Metallic coat. The G80 M3 is overall an impressive car with its specs. Having it with no other known standard M3s coated in the same color is a one-of-one moment. After taking delivery of the new M3, AutoTopNL decides to take it to the dyno. How much power can the G80 M3 truly make? Get into more details from this new video of the new BMW G80 M3 in dyno, from AutoTopNL.

German automakers usually underrate their engines to avoid getting caught with lesser power than the claims. According to BMW, the standard BMW M3 from the factory makes 473 horsepower (480 PS) and 406 lb-ft of torque (550 Nm). However, knowing that the Brits like to underrate, there is so much more from the G80 M3 beneath its lid.

Surprisingly, the G80 made at about 496 horsepower (503 PS) and around 607 Nm of torque. Those numbers are great from the standard M3. It proves that the Competition is an unnecessary power bump. Indeed, the base M3 for any enthusiasts has more than enough power. AutoTopNL mentions in their latest video that it is easy to tune the M3’s S58 engine up to 600 horsepower. However, with a manual rear-wheel-drive car, that is genuinely unnecessary.

Electrification is taking hold sooner for future cars. So might as well enjoy the golden age of internal combustion power, as these cars might not last much longer. The fact that customers can go to a dealership and pick out a manual, 500 horsepower sedan with carbon fiber sport buckets rear-wheel drive, with five seats and a big trunk, makes this the golden age of sports cars. Reminiscing the good old days of communication and a decent steering feel is something to miss. A remarkable performance in daily packages is something to get your hands into.
