BMW Z4 with 2 liter TwinPower Turbo debuts

19 Apr 2011

BMW Z4 at the New York Motor Show (April 20/21) with new 2-litre TwinPowerTurbo engine for the first time.

Munich.With its athletic design, agile handling and  powerful engine, the BMW Z4 has achieved outstanding success in the  class of premium roadsters, having been the worldwide segment leader  in 2009 and 2010. Towards the end of the year, the BMW Z4 is to  feature another technological highlight: a completely newly developed  2-litre engine with TwinPower Turbo technology and an output of 176  kW/240 bhp. Its name is BMW Z4sDrive28i.

Thanks to TwinPower Turbo technology, the new supercharged  4-cylinder petrol engine with all-aluminium crankcase, already  available in the BMW X1 xDrive28i, provides increased torque,  improved performance and much reduced fuel consumption  and  emission levels as compared to the existing 6-cylinder induction  engine model BMW Z4 sDrive30. The absolute figures, including those  for the driving performance of the new BMW Roadster, are expected to  be finalised mid-year.

This newly developed engine in the BMW Z4 sDrive 28i uses the  globally unique BMW TwinPower Turbo technology. In other words it is  fitted with High Precision Injection as well as a turbocharger powered  via two exhaust ducts. Other elements of this progressive engine  package include the variable camshaft control system double VANOS and  the fully variable valve control system VALVETRONIC.

The new 2-litre petrol engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology in  the BMW Z4 sDrive28i thus sets a further milestone in the BMW  EfficientDynamics strategy.
