Everyone has seen old hippy van painted to the nines or cars with wacky paint jobs driving down the street but you’ve probably never seen cars like this.

This type of art became popular enough in the last few decades for art car shows to materialize. BMW has been involved in art cars since the mid-1970s getting Andy Warhol and Sandro Chia to paint a piece for the gallery. The first BMW art car was a 3.0-liter CSL painted by Alexander Calder in 1975. BMW canvases have included the M1, Z1, E34 and E36.

Depending on your opinion of the M3 V8, this may be upsetting. BMW may be considering a V6 engine for the next generation BMW M3. You read that correctly, V6 instead of their famous traditional inline 6.

According to M3post.com, BMW may decide on one of four different power-plants. The first option is to strap a pair of turbochargers on their current S65 V8. Another rumour is to modify the turbocharged  N54 inline-six or possibly a version of the F10 M5′s twin-turbo V8 S63 engine. The most interesting rumour, however is to turbo-charge a V6. This comes as a surprise because BMW has traditionally used an inline 6. However, Audi’s S4 has dropped the high output V8 for a turbocharged V6 and BMW is quite competitive with Audi. Of course, true BMW enthusiasts would like to see a rebirth of the inline 6.
