Default Bmw 740 D

Here’s a look at BMW’s new 740d, the most powerful diesel luxury car ever produced by the firm.

It’s powered by a twin turbo six-cylinder oil-burner designed to offer the raw performance of a big V8. The engine details are scarce, but we do know that it is all-aluminium and boasts high pressure fuel injection.

With 306hp and a peak torque of 600Nm maintained between 1,500 and 2,500rpm, the BMW 740d accelerates from 0-62 in 6.3 seconds onto an electronically limited top speed of 155mph.

BMW also claim that the car will have a fuel consumption of 40.9mpg and carbon emissions of 181g/km, which would be a class-leading efficiency.

The BMW 740dwill be introduced this autumn, with the price, likely to be around £60,000, also being announced at that time.

Meanwhile, BMW has also announced exclusive Lifestyle and Sport Editions for the 1-Series to be sold as of September 2009, alongside two new entry-level versions of the 1-Series Coupé – with a petrol or diesel engine.

The 120i Coupé features a 2.0 litre four-cylinder engine, with 170hp, 210 Nm of torque, top speed of 149mph and 0-62 in 7.8 seconds. The 118d Coupè has a four-cylinder engine, which provides 143hp and 300Nm peak torque. The 118d model can accelerate from 0-62 in 9.0 seconds up to a top speed of 130mph.

The new Lifestyle and Sport Editions will be available on all 1-Series models. Lifestyle Edition features stylish body paintwork in Marrakesh Brown Metallic, chrome-plated tailpipes as well as light-alloy rims in five spoke designs.
On the five-door the look is completed with window shaft covers and side window surrounds in Shadow Line, on the three-door in Chrome Line. The interior includes a leather steering wheel, Marrakesh brown interior trim and Magma brown door panels and seat upholstery.

The Sport Edition, meanwhile, has a sport suspension set-up and Ferric Grey wheel paintwork is available. Other exterior features include foglams, chrome tailpipes, Blackline rear lights and Shadow Line side windows. The interior includes stainless steel pedals with an M footrest, steering wheel and gearshift lever as well as a sports seat for the driver and front passenger with ornamental blue stiching.

These new Editions come out in September for all 1-Series models.

That's 40.9 miles per UK gallon, which is 32.7 miles per US gallon, but still impressive.

The BMW 7-Series is introducing several new models and accessories to reinforce the success it had in the previous year. Beside the already existing and new M Sport Pack being offered for all 7-series range for both regular and lengthened wheelbase, an optional xDrive AWD and a new 740d is also offered for the 2010 BMW 7-series. Set for an introduction in the third quarter of the year, the BMW 740d will feature for the first time a new straight-six diesel powerplant equipped with TwinPower direct injection and twin-turbocharging technologies from the Bavarian carmaker. The 3.0-liter engine is capable of 306hp (225kW) and 442lb-ft (600Nm) of top torque which it can consistently maintain in the engine speed range of 1,500 and 2,500rpm. These figures are sufficient enough to propel the car from 0-100km/h in 6.3 seconds and quickly reach a top speed of 250km/h which is electronically limited.

Even with these performance numbers, the car is still capable of a 34mpg (6.9L/100km) fuel economy and a lowered carbon dioxide emissions in the 181g/km level. Meanwhile, the 730d diesel version receives a new BluePerformance exhaust particulate filtering system from the Bavarian carmaker for its 2010 model. The consequence of this addition is a reduction of nitric oxides to the emissions standard that will come with the introduction of the EU6 in 2014. Fuel consumption is maintained at 34mpg (6.8L/100km) but emissions of carbon dioxide have been further lowered to the 178g/km level. The 2010 7- series will be equipped for the first time with the intelligent xDrive AWD of BMW, which will first be offered to the 750i and 750Li models and will later filter across the range in time.
The xDrive adapts the amount of torque channeled to either axle contingent on the traction levels of the four wheels and it attains this through an electronically controlled multiple-plate clutch. Furthermore, the operation of the xDrive is also dependent on the steering angle that the driver pre-determined. When travelling regularly in a straight line, power is distributed 40-60 from font to rear with up to 80 percent of the drive power channeled to the rear axle in a curb. When the car gets over the curb the distribution reverts back to normal to provide optimum traction as it anticipates an acceleration as the car returns to a straight line driving position.

The Bmw M5 is an incredible vehicle that is equipped with a 5.0L V10 that is capable of 507bhp, but still, it will receive more upgrades when it come out as a new-generation model. There are talks that the Bmw M5 will be coming with a new twin-turbocharged V10 power unit in step with the Audi RS6.
The new powerplant is said to be an improvement from the company’s 564bhp 4.4L twin-turbo which will drive the forthcoming X5 M and X6 M vehicles. It is capable of more than 600bhp and is possibly going to be couple with an F1-inspired KERS system, thus enabling the user to bump performance with just a press of a button. The M5 however will also be watching out for fuel economy with a new feature that shuts down cylinders when they are not in use.

Seems like the perfect biz-car, the 5-er is big enough, but the 7 is much more comfortable for long jaunts (cockpit & seats).

Can't wait for confirmed specs on the F10 M5!

Neato. I wonder what it would get under EPA testing.
