2007 BMW 3 Series Coupe

| |
These are the first official pictures of BMW’s all new 4th generation 3 Series Coupe. Before I say anything else, I think that most of you will agree that BMW did a good job with the design, creating a coupe that withholds the classy lines of all its predecessors. Thank God they avoided any “Bungle” ups this time.



As for the mechanics, the 3 Coupe will be offered with three straight six petrol engines: a 2.5 with 218 Hp, a 3.0 with 272 Hp and the all new 3.0 biturbo that produces 306 Hp. Also, there’s a 231 Hp 3.0 diesel, while for the first time, the 3 Coupe will be offered with a 4wd system. More info coming soon


BMW 335i: 306 Hp 3.0 biturbo engine
Developing maximum output of 225 kW/306 hp and peak torque of 400 Newton-metres or 295 lb-ft, this 3.0-litre power unit is the new top-end engine within BMW’s wide range of six-cylinders.

Compared with the proven 3.0-litre normal aspiration engine, biturbo technology increases overall output by approximately 15 and peak torque by an even more impressive 30 per cent.

The result is clear: maximum output of 225 kW/306 hp and peak torque of 400 Newton-metres or 295 lb-ft. which, on the road, means outstanding thrust and driving power all the way up from low engine speeds.



By contrast, the combination of turbocharger technology with high-precision gasoline injection is a particularly efficient way to meet even greater demands in terms of output and torque. And for compa­rison, the new straight-six biturbo weighs about 70 kilos or 158 lb less than an approximately equally powerful eight-cylinder normal-aspiration engine displacing 4.0 litres. A further essential point is that the power unit equipped with high-precision fuel injection offers about 10 per cent lower fuel consumption than an equally powerful turbocharged engine with manifold injection.
