BMW TwinPower Turbo petrol engines.
The innovations package of the BMW TwinPower Turbo 8-, 6- and 4-cylinder petrol engines is one of the key elements of the BMW EfficentDynamics strategy: a TwinScroll turbocharger with Valvetronic, double-VANOS and High Precision Injection mean lower fuel consumption and an increase in dynamics.
Ready for top performance: the BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo represents the highest standard in motoring with the BMW TwinPower Turbo 8-cylinder petrol engine in the BMW 550i with two turbochargers, Valvetronic, double-Vanos and petrol direct High Precision Injection. This engine, with its rev range from 2,000 to 4,500 rpm and a satisfying maximum torque of 650 Nm across the speed range accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h with 330 kW (450 hp) in an impressive 5.0 seconds (xDrive: 4.8 s). The engine’s compact build shortens the exhaust paths for extremely direct responsiveness, while double-Vanos optimally distributes the torque over the entire rev range. Efficiency doesn’t come too short either: combined consumption is 9.2 litres per 100 km (xDrive: 9.6 l) with combined CO2 emissions from 214 g/km (xDrive: 224 g/km).
In the BMW in-line 6-cylinder petrol engine of the BMW 535i the result is 225 kW (306 hp), a powerful 400 Nm across a wide speed range and commendably silky smoothness. This dynamic start make the combined consumption values even more impressive: 8.2 l/100 km (xDrive: 8.5 l) are all it takes to satisfy the BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo. Even the CO2 emissions are moderate: 192 g/km (xDrive: 199 g/km). In addition, all petrol engines for the BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo fulfil the EU6 emission norm that comes into effect in 2014.
All figures in accordance with EU test cycle.
