If you can’t wait for the newest v8 M3, BMW has preapred a car for you: the 335i. And if you want power and speed in a diesel the 335d is the car dor you.Of course 335i and 335d will come in all shapes coupe, touring, sedan and cabrio. The xDrive will also be available for people that don`t want just rear-wheel drive.
what`s in the 335i?
The 335i will be based on the 330i, it will be powered by the same 3.0 litre 6 cylinder engine, but with a dual turbo, which will boost the power from 258HP to 330HP (only 13HP less then the e46 M3).
The turbos will be fitted so that one works at lower engine speeds to boost low-end torque, while the other picks up higher up the rev range.
Autocar speculates that it will be mated to a DSG-alike double-clutch gearbox, for seamless shifting.
The engine is currently being tested on their 5-series model with a modified bumper to allow better airflow for the intercooler.
what`s in the 335d?
The 335d has under the hood the same engine as the 535d. This dual turbo 3.0 litre 6 cylinder diesel engine will power the 335d up to 272HP and it’ll give it a torque of 560Nm!
The 535d runs up to 100km/h in 6.5 seconds, with the smaller weight of the 335d, it’ll probably get there in about 6 seconds.
