INTAKE AIR DUCTING.

INTAKE AIR DUCTING.

The intake air ducting for the M TwinPower Turbo engine has been optimised for minimum pressure loss and ultra-low flow resistance. That leads to even better response characteristics and and high efficiency.

INDIRECT INTERCOOLING.

INDIRECT INTERCOOLING.

Indirect intercooling is an important component of the performance-optimised cooling system. Along with components such as the engine and transmission cooling system, intercooling guarantees optimum power delivery during turbocharged operation. This keeps the engine unreservedly fit for the racetrack and also supremely dynamic, free-revving and durable.

CRANKSHAFT DRIVE AND FORGED PISTONS.

CRANKSHAFT DRIVE AND FORGED PISTONS.

The weight-optimised crankshaft drive permits maximum and stable power delivery on the racetrack – up to the highest engine speeds. Contributing to this are similarly weight-optimised and high-strength components such as the crankshaft and forged pistons.

HIGH-PRESSURE INJECTION.

HIGH-PRESSURE INJECTION.

For maximum power output and optimised combustion of the air-fuel ratio, the engine’s injection pressure is a high 350 bar. The high pressure improves fuel atomisation and mixture preparation, thus optimising fuel consumption and emissions. At the same, fuel film formation on the cylinder walls decreases and injection times fall.

M TWINPOWER TURBO TECHNOLOGY.

M TWINPOWER TURBO TECHNOLOGY.

The high-performance engine’s two exhaust turbochargers are key to its effectiveness. They increase the intake pressure and consequently the engine’s output. In tandem with the flow-optimised boost pressure control and indirect intercooling, the result is a swift, dynamic response and high torque even at low revs.

OIL SUPPLY.

OIL SUPPLY.

The engine’s oil supply, too, is determined by the high-performance principle. Optimised for transverse dynamics, the oil sump with windage tray and active suction equips the car for racetrack notably increased longitudinal and transverse dynamics of up to 1.4 g. For optimum dynamics, the lubrication is governed fully variably by a map-controlled pump.
