BMW TwinPower Turbo 8-cylinder petrol engine in the BMW 650i and
BMW 650i xDrive.
It takes a special engine to achieve extraordinary performance. This is demonstrated to phenomenal effect by the BMW 650i and the BMW 650i xDrive.
A brief press of the accelerator is all it takes to unleash the power of the newly-developed BMW TwinPower Turbo eight-cylinder petrol engine, which, with its two turbochargers, Valvetronic, double-Vanos and High Precision Injection, is capable of reaching 100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds. The BMW 650i with BMW xDrive achieves this in 4.4 seconds.
Centrally-positioned exhaust turbochargers in the V of the cylinder banks permit an especially compact engine design. In light of its extraordinary 330 kW (450 hp) output and a maximum torque of 650 Nm, the BMW TwinPower Turbo eight-cylinder petrol engine also sets new standards in fuel consumption: equipped with Auto Start Stop function and other BMW EfficientDynamics measures, the average fuel consumption of the BMW 650i was reduced to 8.8 to 8.6 l/100 km, with CO2 emissions of 206 to 199 g/km.
This means the BMW 650i already fulfils the EU6 emission norm that only comes into effect in 2014.
The figures for fuel consumption and CO2 emissions depend on the wheel and tyre sizes selected.
