BMW TwinPower Turbo petrol engines.
From silky-smooth 6-cylinder drive trains via a high-torque V8 engine to the V12 power unit – state-of-the-art BMW TwinPower Turbo technology ensures a befitting level of thrust, maximum refinement and commendable efficiency.
Dynamics combined with outstanding efficiency and comfortable smoothness: With its 235 kW (320 hp), the inline 6-cylinder petrol engine in the BMW 740i/Li has considerable reserves of power, resulting from the intelligent combination of two turbochargers with double-VANOS and petrol direct injection. Its CO2 emission figures have been reduced by 21 per cent to only 184 g/km, making it one of the most efficient in its class.
The BMW TwinPower Turbo 8-cylinder petrol engine comes up with a rich power bonus of 10 per cent taking it to 330 kW (450 hp). Equipped with two turbochargers, double-VANOS, variable valve control (Valvetronic) and petrol direct injection, the BMW 750i/Li accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in only 4.8 seconds (xDrive: 4.6 s; Li xDrive: 4.6 s). Equally phenomenal is the reduction of its CO2 emissions by a quarter to 199 g/km (xDrive: 217 g/km; Li xDrive: 219 g/km). The reference mark in the top performance class continues to be set by the BMW TwinPower Turbo 12-cylinder petrol engine in the BMW 760i/Li, which combines two turbochargers with double-VANOS and petrol direct injection and complies with the EU6 emissions regulations as standard.
