mhelouin Posted March 29, 2006 Share Posted March 29, 2006 Quoted from Edmunds.com regarding the new BMW 3 Coupe: "If you need more than a little wind in your hair to get excited about the 3 Series, the new 335Ci is the car to look for this summer. It will be the first application of the BMW's new twin-turbo, straight-six engine, a setup which delivers 306 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque from its 3.5 liters of displacement. Expect to see a retuned suspension, stronger brakes and bigger wheels and tires on the 335Ci as it's bound to be marketed as a high-performance alternative to the standard 3.0-liter models." It would seem with turbocharging and additional displacement, this engine should be at least 15-20% more powerful from the factory than these numbers would indicate. Maybe it's a gross under rating to keep the M3 in its place from a marketing perspective, but I have to believe this would be an engine that could generate 400+hp and torque with minimal tuning. Any other opinions out there? --Marc Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
