Official: 2006 3 Series Coupe (e92)

The first official pictures of BMW's all new 4th generation 3 Series coupé! The design is looking pretty good, especially the rear end, which has a heavier look...
The front looks a lot like the "normal" e90 3 series with m-package. As the guys from Carscoop say, the classy lines of it's predecessors are held, and BMW didn't "Bangle" the car up this time.
The coupé will be offered (at first) with three petrol engines and one diesel engine (all 6 cylinders). The petrol engines are: a 2.5 with 218 HP, a 3.0 with 272 HP and the (earlier featured here) 3.0 biturbo with 306 HP. The diesel engine has a displacement of 3 litres and produces 231 HP. Also the x-drive system will be offered on the coupé, a first time on a 3 series coupé.


BMW 335i: 306 Hp 3.0 biturbo engine
Developing maximum output of 225 kW/306 hp and peak torque of 400 Newton-metres or 295 lb-ft, this 3.0-litre power unit is the new top-end engine within BMW’s wide range of six-cylinders.
Compared with the proven 3.0-litre normal aspiration engine, biturbo technology increases overall output by approximately 15 and peak torque by an even more impressive 30 per cent.


The result is clear: maximum output of 225 kW/306 hp and peak torque of 400 Newton-metres or 295 lb-ft. which, on the road, means outstanding thrust and driving power all the way up from low engine speeds.
By contrast, the combination of turbocharger technology with high-precision gasoline injection is a particularly efficient way to meet even greater demands in terms of output and torque. And for compa­rison, the new straight-six biturbo weighs about 70 kilos or 158 lb less than an approximately equally powerful eight-cylinder normal-aspiration engine displacing 4.0 litres. A further essential point is that the power unit equipped with high-precision fuel injection offers about 10 per cent lower fuel consumption than an equally powerful turbocharged engine with manifold injection.
