BMW’s Torquey Diesel with Four Turbos

Posted by: Xavier Kwan onMay 18th, 2016


BMW’s new diesel engine makes a massive 400hp and even greater amounts of torque at 560lb/ft. The engine is a 3.0L 6 cylinder engine but it pack in four turbos which is BMW’s proprietary TwinPower Turbo technology. The turbos perform in multi stage and is able to produce fuel economy in the 48-49mpg range. When packed into the 750 big body car, the motor can still generate a 100km/h sprint at just 4.7 seconds.

Managing fuel economy was accomplished by utilizing new engine manufacturing processes and technology which allows the engine to operate more efficiently. An example of that is utilizing low-friction coatings on the cylinder walls and pistons made from aluminum and silicon to aid in the increase in fuel economy.
