The German site, BimmerToday was lucky enough to get some seat time in a F20 1 Series with BMW ‘s 3 cylinder engine under the hood. BMW DTM driver Andy Priaulx recently had the experience of driving this engine and came away quite impressed, saying it was free revving and sounded much better than he imagined it could- we tend to take his word for it especially after seeing this video.

The idea of a 3 cylinder made no sense to many, but with advances in technology manufacturers are decreasing cylinder counts and improving performance, Ford ‘s 1.0l 3 banger has been praised countless times and it looks like this, the BMW N37 will follow suit. We can ‘t wait to get a chance to drive this engine and truly see what it is all about.
