The maestro.

The straight six-cylinder petrol engine
in the BMW 523i, 525i, 530i.

The genius of BMW's High Precision Injection takes dynamic responsiveness to new heights. Variable multi-stage direct injection makes combustion quieter and more efficient. Performance and running smoothness are enhanced, while emissions and fuel consumption are reduced. The figures speak for themselves: the BMW 530i has a top power output of 200 kW (272 hp) and maximum torque of 320 Nm at 2,750 rpm, but consumes just 7.7 litres per 100 km on average. The engine's unmistakable sound can't be conveyed by the figures.
