The M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine features superior power delivery, silky smooth running and an exceptional performance. Not only that, but the brawny 3.0-litre engine emits a captivatingly sporty sound as it goes about its work. Thanks to an oil system with a return pump, the engine is always fed precisely the right amount of oil, even during maximum longitudinal and latitudinal acceleration on a racetrack.
This engine combines the Valvetronic fully variable valve control including Double-VANOS, High-Precision Injection and a TwinScroll turbocharger to optimally fill the cylinders. The result: a peak performance of 272 kW and a maximum torque of 465 Nm, plus 35 Nm with the aid of the Overboost function, between 1,400 and 5,560 rpm. This means that the Turbo petrol engine accelerates the car from 0 to 100 km/h in a breathtaking 4.5 s, reaching a top speed of 250 km/h. Thanks to various intelligent technological innovations, its fuel consumption drops to a combined rate of just 8.5 litres per 100 km at a CO2 emissions level of only 199 g/km.
Impressively efficient, packed with power and delivering a direct response even at low engine speeds – this all-conquering drive train is destined to delight every driver of a BMW.
