ACCORDING to BMW it has just launched the world’s most powerful six-cylinder diesel engine as part of its new BMW 7 series.
An impressive spread of innovations mark the new BMW 7 Series luxury sedan out from the crowd. These run from a Carbon Core body structure and BMW eDrive technology in the three iPerformance models to BMW gesture control and Remote Control Parking.
Add to this the world’s most powerful six-cylinder diesel engine which has very impressive fuel consumption for a luxury car and admirable CO2 emissions together with intelligent all-wheel drive.
The new 3.0-litre six-cylinder in-line engine was developed on the basis of the BMW Group’s latest generation of power units. Its BMW TwinPower Turbo technology includes multi-stage turbocharging with four turbochargers and common-rail direct injection, the latest update of which generates maximum pressure in excess of 2,500 bar.
These and other technological highlights allow significant improvements to the already exceptional power delivery, pulling power and efficiency achieved by the outgoing engine. The new BMW 750d xDrive accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.6 seconds a definite increase over its predecessor.
Thanks to a new design and technological improvements, engine output has increased by 5 per cent whilst fuel consumption drops by 11 per cent, although if you can afford this luxury car, perhaps you don’t care too much about running costs.
All in all an impressive new car which is just appearing at dealers throughout Europe now.
