BMW M subbrand

HAS A HEART WITH SIX CHAMBERS.

The M TwinPower Turbo engine in the BMW M3 Sedan.

At the core of the BMW M3 Sedan is the redeveloped M TwinPower Turbo straight 6-cylinder petrol engine. With tremendous power and an unmistakeable sound. The interplay of optimally aligned motor sport technologies allows direct power development with a boost of 317 kW.

M TWINPOWER TURBO PETROL ENGINES.

Bi-Turbo direct fuel injection and typical M fine-tuning ensure that the engine responds directly to the slightest nudge of the accelerator with enthusiastic boost and excellent torque. With its motor sport-suitable cooling concept as well as an additional oil sump cover and oil drain pump, the M engine is ready to take on any challenges. Numerous innovations like sleeveless construction or a lighter, cast crankshaft continue the intelligent lightweight concept, improve dynamics and acceleration, lower consumption and enable an optimal weight distribution of almost 50:50. The reward: unprecedentedly agile driving that’s impressively underscored by the unmistakeable sound of the M engine.
