POWER MEETS EFFICIENCY.Engine20 21The numbers speak for themselves: horsepower. A -rpmredline. . seconds from - . The high-revving M TwinPower TurboV- in the BMW M makes a singularly forceful statement when itcomes to performance and acceleration.Fully leveraging innovative BMW technology – Double-VANOS contin-uously variable camshaft timing, High Precision Direct Injection, andValvetronic individual intake valve control that eliminates the need for aless-efﬁ cient throttle plate – the M generates an enormous lb-ftof torque. This is available across a wide engine speed range, withemphatic forward thrust on tap from just over idle right through to highrevs. A double turbocharger, combined with two large intercoolers tocool the engine and intake air, fully exploit the superb pulling powerof this high-performance powerplant.The M ’s V- also sets benchmarks when it comes to the performance-to-fuel consumption ratio. BMW Efﬁ cientDynamics features include theenergy-saving Auto Start-Stop function that turns off the engine whilestopped and then restarts it automatically when you take your foot off thebrake. Brake Energy Regeneration recovers energy output from the car’sbraking and then recycles it to help power the vehicle. The result is nearlyone-third less fuel consumption than its predecessor – exceptionallygood highway fuel mileage for an ultra-high-power car.And then there’s the specially tuned M exhaust: an irresistible siren songfor driving enthusiasts everywhere. BMW AG preliminary test results with -speed M DCT. See page for detailed technical data.BMW urges you to obey all posted speed laws and always wear safety belts. Preliminary – EU test cycle results.High torque is available across an extremely broad range of engine speeds –from rpm (a little more than idle) all the way to rpm. You experiencepower that responds fast and long across a wide range of acceleration startingpoints, for greater driving enjoyment.M TwinScroll turbocharging for faster throttle response.Turbochargers recycle exhaust pressure to drive a turbine that feeds high-pressure air to the engine. It’s a clever and effective technology with onedrawback: it takes time under acceleration to build exhaust pressure tospin the turbo. BMW M TwinScroll Turbo technology slashes this “turbolag” by timing the exhaust pulses. Exhaust ﬂ ows into the turbos from eachof two cylinder paths with a -degree ﬁ ring interval. This minimizesinterference between exhaust pulses, optimizing energy transfer. Whatyou feel is incredibly crisp throttle response.562514466418370322274226178059055051047043039035031027000 1000 2000 3000 4000 5000 6000 7000 8000Engine speed (rpm)Torque (lb-ft)Output (hp)Torque(lb-ft)Output(hp)
The extraordinary power of the BMW M requires the application ofintelligent transmission and drivetrain systems for maximum efﬁ ciency –and driving fun. The racing-derived -speed M Double ClutchTransmission (M DCT) with Drivelogic can be personalized by the driverto match a wide range of preferences, from comfort to extreme sport.This dynamic transmission can operate in either fully automatic orautomated manual mode. In the manual mode, you shift like a GrandPrix driver by ﬂ icking paddles just behind the steering wheel with yourﬁ ngertips. Without taking your hands off the wheel – and with your footﬁ rmly on the accelerator – you can quickly select one of seven gears,and the transmission does the rest. Whether changing gears up ordown, the experience is exciting and rewarding.Here’s how it works. M Double Clutch Transmission is based on notone, but two partial transmissions housed inside the same gear case.One transmission contains gears , , and ; the other, gears , and .Now here’s the genius of it: say you’re accelerating hard in gear in onetransmission. Before the shift to gear is made, this next gear is alreadyengaged and ready to go. To make the shift, M DCT doesn’t push gears.Rather, it selects one of two clutches to instantly engage the next gearin the other transmission. Changing clutches, instead of physicallyPERFECTION AT THE LIMIT.moving gears, is blindingly fast – and it can be executed with yourright foot ﬂ at to the ﬂ oor. To further improve acceleration, appropriatelyconﬁ gured Drivelogic programs boost torque to a higher degree.Combined with the close ratio gaps between the seven gears, theseprograms help you feel each gear shift with an ever-increasing surgeforward.The M Double Clutch Transmission also automates a time-tested race-driving principle to improve vehicle dynamics when slowing for a corner:precisely matching engine rpm to the next-lowest gear during the shift.M DCT automates this function, precisely matching engine rpm tobraking force to prevent sudden lurching when shifting down. Anotheraspect of Drivelogic gives you a choice of six drive programs – three inmanual mode and three in automatic. Each offers a broad spectrum,from full-on sporting to smooth and effortless.The transmission also offers another technology taken directly fromracecars: Launch Control. This provides the BMW M with the just theright amount of power to the rear wheels for the best acceleration froma standing start to top speed. What you get is the power to apply powerlike never before.Active M Differential optimizes traction for greater control.This differential, the ﬁ nal gear unit connecting the transmission to thedrive wheels, is electronically controlled and communicates with theDynamic Stability Control (DSC) system to ensure intelligent applicationof engine torque in every driving situation, including high-speedcornering and variable road surfaces.
ENGINEERED TO GO AROUND THE TRACK.OR JUST AROUND THE CORNER.Chassis and brakes24 25The BMW M Sedan doesn’t conform to traditional rules. Instead,it is born of the free-spirited and innovative engineering philosophyof BMW M. This ensures a driving experience that can be conﬁ guredfor the track or even an easy drive to the supermarket.The precision-built M high-performance chassis you see on the facingpage has been redeveloped from scratch and tuned to perfection onthe famous and demanding Northern Loop of Germany’s Nürburgring,the Nordschleife. You begin to experience the effect of M when yousettle into the cockpit and see the M Drive buttons on the steeringwheel. These buttons connect you to pre-programmed conﬁ gurationsfor either a sporty or a comfortable drive. One of these is M DynamicMode, which helps you push the performance envelope of the Mby raising the threshold of when Dynamic Stability Control intervenes.This works in concert with the Active M Differential that improvestraction on even the most demanding corners. As a result, you canexplore the limits with more conﬁ dence.Also adding to your enjoyment is Dynamic Damping Control. Thisfeature allows you to adjust the shock absorbers to your preferencein one of three modes: COMFORT, SPORT and SPORT+. It’s one moreway the racing souls of BMW M engineers put a smile on your facewith every drive.Get the latest information on BMW standard and optional features, packages and technical speciﬁ cations.Visit bmwusa.com, select the BMW model of your choice, and click on “Features Specs.”
