M TwinPower Turbo 8-cylinder petrol engine.
The M TwinPower Turbo 8-cylinder petrol engine dispenses breathtaking power and smooth torque. The use of intelligent technologies sends driving pleasure soaring and effectively reduces fuel consumption and emissions.
Only something that can breathe freely can steal your breath – this is why twin VANOS and Valvetronic adjust the camshaft control and the lift of the intake valves variably to every driving situation. Needs-based performance control is the maxim inside the combustion chamber too. Here the High Precision Injection uses maximum accuracy to guarantee high performance. The fuel is metered finely and injected with millisecond accuracy. When maximum performance is not demanded, such as during partial load operation, the oxygen component is raised automatically – combustion of the mixture becomes cleaner and more efficient.
Despite a tremendous increase in performance, the BMW M6 Convertible with its average of 10.3 litres per 100 kilometres has a fuel consumption approximately 30% below that of its predecessor – and is therefore at the top of its class.
