BMW M subbrand

FASTERMIND.

The M TwinPower Turbo engine of the BMW M2 Coupé.

It’s not the size that counts, but the actual strength of this powerhouse. The compact M inline 6-cylinder engine in the BMW M2 Coupé offers impressive proof. With its 272 kW, this powerplant catapults the 1,570 kg vehicle effortlessly to a top speed of up to 250 km/h, which is a weight-to-power ratio of 5.5 kg/kW. The top overall performance and a cooling system that has been tested on the racetrack guarantee a breathtaking driving experience.

M TWIN POWER TURBO INLINE 6-CYLINDER PETROL ENGINE.

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 and a maximum torque of 465 Nm, plus 35 Nm with the aid of the Overboost function, between 1,400 and 5,560 rpm. This means that the Turbo petrol engine accelerates the car from 0 to 100 km/h in a breathtaking 4.5 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 8.5 litres per 100 km at a CO2 emissions level of only 199 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.

Fuel consumption is determined in accordance with the ECE driving cycle, 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. The figures for fuel consumption and CO2 emissions apply in conjunction with the equipment selected.

Rated output: BMW recommends the use of super unleaded 95 RON fuel. Unleaded RON 91 fuel or higher with a maximum ethanol limit of 10 percent (E10) is also permitted. The performance and fuel consumption rates listed are based on the use of RON 98 fuel.

 

*The published fuel consumption and CO2 emission figures are established according to legislated technical specifications (UNECE Regulation 101/UN Regulation 83 and SANS 20101 standards), which sets out the procedures that are used to measure the CO2 emissions and fuel consumption. The claimed figures are established using specific tests under standardised, carefully controlled conditions and may differ from consumption achieved under real world conditions with the influences of altitude, road surface, geographic conditions, vehicle options, temperature, humidity, tyres size and driving behaviour amongst others.
