BMW M subbrand

ENORMOUS POWER. PERFECTLY DELIVERED.

The M TwinPower Turbo 8-cylinder petrol engine.

The BMW M GmbH engineers create engines that are masterpieces. With highly efficient double turbocharging, the M TwinPower Turbo 8-cylinder petrol engine is perfect for driving at threshold level. A light touch of the accelerator is sufficient to experience power delivery that is as spontaneous as it is even.

M TWINPOWER TURBO 8-CYLINDER PETROL ENGINE.

The M TwinPower Turbo 8-cylinder petrol engine converts power into performance. It is the crowning glory of the M power units. Its enormous power of 412 kW and 680 Nm is available at all times thanks to the innovative TwinScroll turbocharging concept and can be further increased with the optional Competition package.

This is possible due to the combination of high engine speeds, turbocharging and technological highlights such as Valvetronic and High Precision Injection. Full torque goes on stream from approx. 1,500 rpm, charting an impressive output curve of virtually linear power delivery, as well as putting a smile on the driver's face. The M TwinPower Turbo 8-cylinder petrol engine demonstrates that power and efficiency are by no means mutually exclusive, with its intelligent BMW EfficientDynamics technologies such as Brake Energy Regeneration. These make for an average fuel consumption of just 9.9 liters of petrol per 100 kilometers.

*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.
