BMW M subbrand

HAS A HEART WITH SIX CHAMBERS.

The M TwinPower Turbo engine in the BMW M3 Sedan.

At the core of the BMW M3 Sedan is the redeveloped M TwinPower Turbo straight 6-cylinder petrol engine. With tremendous power and an unmistakable sound. The interplay of optimally aligned motor sport technologies allows direct power development with a boost of 317 kW.

M TWINPOWER TURBO STRAIGHT 6-CYLINDER PETROL ENGINE. M TWINPOWER TURBO PETROL ENGINES.

The 3.0 l M TwinPower Turbo straight 6-cylinder engine combines the best of both worlds. It's high rev characteristics with up to 7300 rpm and superior power with a maximum of 550 Nm torque are bound to impress. The 317 kW M engine accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.1 seconds.

Bi-Turbo direct fuel injection and typical M fine-tuning ensure that the engine responds directly to the slightest nudge of the accelerator with enthusiastic boost and excellent torque.

A motorsport-suitable cooling concept as well as an additional oil sump cover and oil drain pump, the M engine is ready to take on any challenges. Numerous innovations like sleeveless construction or a lighter, forged crankshaft continue the intelligent lightweight concept, improve dynamics and acceleration, lower consumption and enable an optimal weight distribution of almost 50:50. The reward is unprecedentedly agile driving that’s impressively underscored by the unmistakable sound of the M engine.

*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.
