There is a tweaked version of this motor that generates 382 hp of power and powers Toyota Supra, Z4 M40i, M340i, X3 M40i, X4 M40i, M440i, and M240i.

The report claims that the new and improved B58 engine will be based on the current 335 hp variant. The German car brand will also use this upgraded B58 engine to replace the 382 hp variant, the report further claimed. In this case, it would come kicking out around 400 hp power output.

An interesting fact about this engine is that during the dyno testing of the outgoing B58 engine, BMW has been found understating its power output. In this case, the new 370 hp generating motor could churn out more power output in reality than the number BMW will officially state.
