3 series with a secret twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre six-cylinder version



The BMW M3 looks headed for some stiff in-house rivalry in the form of a secret twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre six-cylinder version of the 3-series thatís little more than a year away from introduction.

That's pretty damn slow. Doesn't a 540i go 0-60 in 6 seconds too?

I've known 2 people that (sorry 3 including my bro) that've
dumped their BM's due to Loss of rear wheel traction....

I'm sure the car can easily be altered to lay down 0-60 in 3,4 secs
but the average owner isn't ready for that...


in my bro's defence he's a sick driver!
his rear end got air off a bump in a turn at 80kph..
he managed to land it's ass end in the only spot of sand in the ditch..
every where around him where Tree stumps..

I believe BMW never made their engines turbocharged...
that's why i appreciate the cars so much is that they compete and beat "tweaked", not naturally aspired engines and still manage to be the best.
the BMW engines are works of art.

A little confused here, what does the owner not being ready for a car have to do with official car specs?

Porsches lay down a nice 4secs and i'm SURE the owners are more than ready for that. And no offence but if your bro was such a sick driver, he should be smart enough to slow down on a turn and NOT GET AIR!


All i'm saying is that i've gotten used to the nice NA BMW engines (they DID do turbos back when, and still make Turbo diesels in europe). But why would someone buy this car with the same engine as the M but with less power?! I'm sure it CAN be tuned to push moer ponies, but the auto market rarely designs high priced luxury cars with the aftermarket world in mind!

And BMW is really startin to pisss me off with their names, the 335i is a 3.0L?!

C'mon!

nope, wrong.

The BMW 2002 Turbo

The 2002 Turbo was introduced at the 1973 Frankfurt Auto Show. Production stopped in July 1975. Between July 1973 and July 1975, only 1,672 models were built. None were certified for sale in the USA.
