The rumormill is at it again. According to German magazine Autobild, the long-time rumored BMW supercar is on track to launch in 2016. The report goes hand-in-hand with the one by CAR Magazine back in February which makes reference to an M8 model.

The German reporter mentions a 600 horsepower supercar with just under 1,500 kilograms ((3,300 lbs) weight. The car will be positioned as a descendant of the M1 but with new technology and materials, like the carbon fiber body seen in the i8.

Under the hood? A rumored V8 TwinTurbo engine, most likely similar to the one found in the M5/M6 models. The assumption is that a 0 to 62 mph time will stop the clock at 3.0 seconds while the top speed will be at 200 mph.

Launching in 2016, the BMW Supercar will celebrate the brand’s 100th birthday.

    600 hp + 1500 kg won’t make it a supercar, will it?
    That would be a GT to compete with the Porsche 911 Turbo or the Audi R8 at most.

    I made some pictures of the protype of this model when I was in Munich the last time. It just drove by, but had to stop at a traffic light. Looks and SOUNDS great – even with the “Erlk├Ânig” camouflage on it.

    never seen goodness shown to me this much in my life as i am a struggling dad with two kids and i have been going through a serious problem as my wife encountered a terrible accident last two weeks, and the doctors states that she needs to undergo a delicate surgery for her to be able to walk again and i could not afford the bill for his surgery then i went to the bank for a loan and they turn me down stating that i have no credit card, from there i run to a friend and he was not able to help, then when i was browsing through yahoo answers and i came across a loan lender Mr Pato Lawrence who provides loans at an affordable interest rate (3%) and i have been hearing about so many scams on the Internet but at this my desperate situation, i had no choice than to give it an attempt and surprisingly it was all like a dream, i received a loan of $35,000 USD and i piad for my wife’s surgery and thank GOD today she is okay,and can walk and is working and the burden is longer so much on me any more and we can feed well and my family is happy today and i said to myself that i will shout aloud to the world of the wonders of GOD to me through this GOD fearing lender Mr Pato Lawrence and i will advise anyone in genuine and serious need of loan to contact this GOD fearing man via and i want you all to pray for this man for me THANKS

    This looks like a photoshoped 2013 NSX concept. The give away is the ram horn shape under the headlights, the hood and upper intakes for the radiator look like they come from the BMW Z4, and the rear of the cockpit looks like that of a Koenigsegg.

    about time bmw……
    looks are very important here so hire a italian designer or something , 700hp sounds more like it than 600 , and rather around 1300kg than 1500kg , then you have a serious player bmw , I would aim high if I were you bmw. success all the way to the top.
