BMW TwinPower Turbo eight-cylinder petrol engines.
Just a brief press of the accelerator in the BMW 6 Series Coupé unleashes the power of the V8 petrol engine. The BMW TwinPower Turbo eight-cylinder engine with two turbochargers, double-Vanos and High Precision Direct Injection delivers an outstanding 449hp (330 kW). A maximum torque of 650 Nm goes from 0 to 62 mph in only 4.6 seconds. Measured against this output, the V8 petrol engine is surprisingly modest in its consumption – with an average of 31.7 mpg and combined CO2 emissions of 206 g/km. The eight-speed sports automatic transmission Steptronic keeps the engine in the optimum revving range and shifts almost imperceptibly while offering outstanding travelling comfort. Centrally fitted exhaust turbochargers in the V of the cylinder banks permit an especially compact engine design and therefore a lighter weight. The combination of lightweight chassis construction and optimised aerodynamics produces unique agility, perfect grip and razor-sharp handling.
