The M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine features superior power delivery, silky smooth running and an exceptional performance. Not only that, but the brawny 3.0-litre engine emits a captivatingly sporty sound as it goes about its work. Thanks to an oil system with a return pump, the engine is always fed precisely the right amount of oil, even during maximum longitudinal and latitudinal acceleration on a racetrack.
This engine combines the Valvetronic fully variable valve control including Double-VANOS, High-Precision Injection and a TwinScroll turbocharger to optimally fill the cylinders. The result: a peak performance of 272 kW (370 hp) and a maximum torque of 465 Nm, plus 35 Nm with the aid of the Overboost function, between 1,350 and 4,500 rpm. This means that the Turbo petrol engine accelerates the car from 0 to 100 km/h in a breathtaking 4.3 s, reaching a top speed of 250 km/h. Thanks to various intelligent technological innovations, its fuel consumption drops to a combined rate of just 7.9 litres per 100 km at a CO2 emissions level of only 185 g/km.
Impressively efficient, packed with power and delivering a direct response even at low engine speeds – this all-conquering drive train is destined to delight every driver of a BMW.
The figures for fuel consumption and CO2 emissions depend on the wheel and tyre sizes selected.
Further information on the official fuel consumption and on the official specific CO2 emissions of new automobiles can be found in the guidelines on fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of new automobiles which are available free of charge at all retail outlets and from DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern, Germany.
The maximum speed is electronically limited BMW M2 Coupé.
All engines meet the EU6 emissions standard. Fuel consumption is determined in accordance with the ECE driving cycle (93/116/EC) made up of approximately one third urban traffic and two thirds extra-urban driving (based on the distance covered). CO2 emissions are measured in addition to fuel consumption as such. Fuel consumption levels are calculated on the basis of vehicles with standard equipment. Special equipment (e.g. wider tyres) can have a significant impact on fuel consumption and driving performance levels.
The technical data specified apply to vehicles in the German market. The models illustrated may, in part, include optional equipment and accessories not fitted as standard.
