M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder engine

M TWINPOWER TURBO INLINE 6-CYLINDER PETROL ENGINE.

The 3.0 l M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder engine combines the best of both worlds: high rev characteristics with up to 7,300 rpm and superior power with a maximum of 550 Nm torque. The 317 kW (431 hp) M engine accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds (M DCT with Drivelogic: 4.4 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 motor sport-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: unprecedentedly agile driving that’s impressively underscored by the unmistakeable sound of the M engine.
