  16. 16. The Bang Olufsen® High-End Surround Sound System delivers maximumhi-fi pleasure in the BMW  Series Gran Coupe. And as well as great music,it delivers a light and design performance that’s well worth seeing.This audio system conjures up a listening experience that’s on a par withthe very best in-home hi-fi environments. In technical terms, sound deliverycomes from   speakers with an output of  ,   watts. But fi gures arenot enough to explain how this sound system turns music into a physicalexperience. In a drum solo, you can actually feel the reverberations of thepowerful bass. Soft solo voices give you goosebumps. Close your eyes –the boundaries of the interior vanish and your ears swear you are insidea concert hall. Creating this magic is a collection of the fi nest car hi-ficomponents currently available, along with astonishing digital music signalprocessing power.YOUR PRIVATEPERFORMANCESPACE.Bang Olufsen High-End Surround Sound System30 31It makes little difference whether the signals come from the radio, a CD drive,connected MP player or smartphone. In the BMW  Series Gran Coupe,the electronic impulses pass with great precision through a specially tunedamplifi er. The sound is then produced by two subwoofers under the frontseats, plus seven midrange speakers and seven tweeters in the dashboard,interior trim and rear shelf. Along with the neodymium magnets and honey-comb structure membranes, these components rank among the absolutebest for high-end audio systems.The Bang Olufsen High-End Surround Sound System was also designedto compensate for structurally based drawbacks inherent in using an auto-mobile interior as a listening space. The revolutionary Dirac Dimensions™technology calculates, in advance, all potential sound optimization needsarising from the uneven structure of the cabin and the asymmetrically posi-tioned loudspeakers. The result is clean, natural sound that is impressivelybig, thanks to Dirac Dimensions.Selecting the Expanded sound mode makes the music in the BMW  SeriesGran Coupe sound as if the speakers were placed at some distance fromthe vehicle. Thanks to Acoustic Lens technology, you and your passengersperceive the system’s sound in identical high quality – regardless of whereyou are sitting.The Bang Olufsen High-End Surround Sound System not only entrancesthe ears, but the eyes as well, with its highly refi ned, modern design. The loud-speaker grilles, for example, are made of anodized aluminum, and are discreetlyilluminated by surrounding white LEDs. In addition, the center loudspeakerin the middle of the instrument panel rises up to bring an Acoustic Lens intoposition. So even before you start driving, the Bang Olufsen High-EndSurround Sound System generates a very special experience for all the senses.

They inject fuel at high pressure,with extreme precision, for very effi cient combustion.Double-VANOS valve timing.BMW’s VANOS valve timing system “steplessly” varies the points in thecombustion cycle when valves open and close. Double-VANOS refersto the fact that it operates on both the intake and exhaust camshafts.Electronically controlled in response to engine speed, temperature andload, it reduces emissions, and enhances low- to medium-speed torque,as well as fuel effi ciency. -speed Sport Automatic transmission.The close spacing of gear ratios in the  -speed Sport Automatic trans-mission makes maximum use of the optimum rev range, reducing fuelconsumption and allowing smoother shifts.Auto Start-Stop function.An idling engine burns fuel unnecessarily. The Auto Start-Stop functionin the BMW  Series Gran Coupe enhances fuel effi ciency by switchingoff the engine when the vehicle is not moving. (The intelligent electronicssystem fi rst checks the battery charge level and calculates if other electricsystems, such as the air conditioning or heated rear windshield, requiremore energy.) Once the footbrake is released, the engine starts up againalmost instantly.Optimized fuel effi ciency.BMW Effi cientDynamics enables every BMW engine to provide maximumpower while using a minimum of fuel. In the BMW    i Gran Coupe’sTwinPower Turbo V- engine, two parallel turbochargers are positionedbetween the cylinder banks. This compact design with shorter intakepaths provides power and performance at a previously unattainable level.Brake Energy Regeneration.With Brake Energy Regeneration, the alternator generates electricity onlywhen the driver takes his or her foot off the accelerator. Kinetic energythat was previously unharnessed is transformed into electrical energy,which is then fed into the battery. In this way, electricity is generatedwithout consuming fuel. bmwusa.com/Effi cientDynamicsAT A GLANCE: BMW EFFICIENT DYNAMICS INNOVATIONSIN THE BMW  SERIES GRAN COUPE.

  22. 22. HIGH-TECH BODYGUARDS: ACTIVE AND PASSIVE SAFETY.The  Series Gran Coupe is designed with BMW’s full range of standard state-of-the-art active and passive safety technologies. Active safetyfeatures, such as Xenon or Full LED Adaptive Headlights, powerful engines and large brakes, help you see and respond to potentially dangeroussituations. Should an accident prove unavoidable, passive safety features, such as airbags and an extremely rigid body are designed to help protectyou and your passengers. After a severe impact, a host of features spring into action: the doors automatically unlock, headlights and taillights flash,the starter cable is disconnected from the battery and the fuel supply is cut off. Should any airbags deploy, BMW Assist™ response specialists areautomatically alerted and notified of your location.Active and passive safety features42 43Dynamic Stability Control (DSC). This system provides remarkabletenacity on slippery road surfaces. If it senses over- or understeer, itmodulates engine power and can apply brakes individually to help keepthe vehicle under control and going in the intended direction. Start-offAssistant, a feature of DSC, prevents the vehicle from rolling backwardon a hill for  . seconds after taking your foot off the brake. The systemalso includes Brake Fade Compensation, which lets you use the sameamount of pedal force, even when the brakes are heated; Brake Stand-by,which pre-tenses the brakes for quicker action if you suddenly removeyour foot from the accelerator pedal; and Brake Drying, which periodicallybrings the brake pads into contact with the rotors to eliminate accumulatedmoisture when it rains.Dynamic Traction Control (DTC). This sub-function of DynamicStability Control raises the threshold for engine and braking intervention.Activated by simply pushing a button, this traction mode allows increasedyet controlled wheelslip, helping to improve propulsion in deep snow orsand. When activated, it also provides an even sportier driving style.Run-flat tires. Thanks to reinforced sidewalls, run-flat tires maintaintheir shape and rim position even after suffering a complete loss of tirepressure. They allow you to continue driving at a reduced speed untilyou reach a safe area to change a tire or wait for Roadside Assistance.The Tire Pressure Monitor alerts you when there is a drop in tire pressure;if the loss is severe, an acoustic warning is triggered.Adaptive Headlights for low- and high-beams enhance illumination ofthe road ahead at night or in poor visibility. Adaptive Headlights provideoptimum illumination of the road ahead when the car enters a turn. Lightdistribution is automatically adapted to the road speed and steering angle.Cornering Lights, positioned in the two inner headlights, are automaticallyactivated by using the turn indicator or changing the steering wheel angle,even when the vehicle is at rest.Active Head Restraints in the front seats reduce the risk of whiplashor neck/head/spine injury. When sensors detect a rear-end collision, theheadrests rapidly and automatically pivot forward, supporting the driver’sand front-seat occupant’s heads.Body stiffness. The intelligent use of high-strength multi-phase steeland aluminum provides a high degree of body stiffness and crash resis-tance. Components such as the A-pillars and windshield frame includespecial reinforcements to provide optimum occupant protection.BMW restraint system for the driver and front passenger combinesthree-point safety belts, automatic safety-belt pretensioners, seatbolsters that help prevent occupants from sliding forward, and ActiveHead Restraints. This system helps provide optimum restraint in acollision.Airbags. In the event of a collision, BMW’s supplemental restraint system(SRS) determines which airbag(s) to deploy for optimal protection. Whena safety belt is used, airbags deploy only at a higher crash severity; theforce of the deployment depends upon the severity of the impact. Fourairbags offer specific protection: front airbags with advanced technologyfor driver and front passenger, and front-seat-mounted side-impact airbags.Note: These pictures of airbags are for illustrative purposes only. Depending upon the type of accident,none, some or all airbags may deploy.
  23. 23. Engineers Klaus Hirschfelder andJohann Schopp stand at the top of theengine-building business. They planand build the large BMW TwinPowerTurbo V- powerplants – a crowningachievement for any engine constructor.The mastery can be fully experienced inthe BMW  Series Gran Coupe.What makes building theBMW TwinPower Turbo V-engine so special?Hirschfelder: For a classical mechanicalengineer, the large V- s are the crowningachievement when it comes to how a com-pact powerplant can generate outstandingperformance and smoothness. And the newengine in the BMW  Series Gran Couperepresents the ultimate expression of themodern-day art of BMW engine-building.Schopp: It takes a lot of experience to fi t allthe BMW TwinPower Turbo technology neatlyinto this compact engine. It’s a privilege tohave the chance to work on such an engine,but it’s an honor you have to earn. The rewardsare huge: the incomparable sound – the typicalV- rumble – is music to the ears of anymechanical engineer.A MIGHTYLABOR OFLOVE.TwinPower Turbo V-8 engine44 | 45What’s new about the BMW TwinPowerTurbo V- engine in the BMW  SeriesGran Coupe?Schopp: We’ve taken the basic constructionof the engine and its  . -liter displacementfrom an existing unit, but everything else –from the pistons, via the connecting rodsto the cylinder head – is new, with the aimof increasing both power and effi ciency.Integrating Valvetronic variable valve controlwas extremely tricky, but the system cutsfuel consumption by six percent. All BMWgasoline engines are now fi tted with BMWTwinPower Turbo technology, almost withoutexception combined with High Precision DirectInjection, Valvetronic and Double-VANOS.We have achieved further reductions in fuelconsumption using developments such asdemand-based oil and water pumps, whichuse less engine power.What are the major challenges toovercome in constructing this engine?Hirschfelder: You need a lot of skill andpatience to accommodate two turbochargersand two catalytic converters to optimumeffect within the tight V confi guration of thisengine. With this kind of compact, powerfulturbocharged engine, cooling is also highlycomplex. After all, temperatures hit   degrees Celsius (    degrees Fahrenheit)in and around the turbochargers.Schopp: We have fi tted extremely effectiveheat protection and defl ector plates in theseareas to divert the heat downward and to therear. All coolant systems and the air supplyhave been reworked, now funneling largequantities of air through the engine compart-ment. Critical areas of the engine, such as theturbocharger mounting and the two enginemanagement units, are liquid-cooled.When you mention BMW engines, manypeople immediately think of a straight-six, but the company also has a traditionof making V- s.Schopp: That’s right, we were building V-engines back in the     s, when there wasno straight-six in the BMW lineup. Back then,the use of an aluminum crankcase and apair of two-barrel carburetors was alreadyextremely advanced. This engine was fi ttedin various models – including the BMW    .What are the performance and fuelconsumption fi gures for the engine?Hirschfelder: The engine develops    hpand    lb-ft of torque. By teaming up theeffi cient  -speed automatic gearbox and theAuto Start-Stop function, fuel consumption isreduced, when compared to its predecessorengine, by up to   percent, depending onthe model. In the new BMW  Series GranCoupe, that means an average of   mpg andCO emissions of    -   grams per mile.Sensational fi gures for a car of this caliber.Schopp: When you drive the car, you noticeits very special V- composure immediately.This special BMW TwinPower Turbo V-engine has power in abundance and neverseems to strain. It is an outstanding matchfor the BMW  Series Gran Coupe. As soonas you fi re up the engine you know you’redriving a hugely refi ned, fl awless car. Preliminary fi gures.
