The most exciting thing about the F80 M3 and F82 M4 is going to be the weight. Weight savings is a major focus for the development. That and the active diff from the F10 M5 and F12/F13 M6. When you mash the throttle the ECU tells the diff to lock up before the power gets there giving you maximum traction. As just one example of the way the system works. It is really cool stuff.
