BMW 535i Gran Turismo Uses BorgWarner Twin Scroll Turbocharger
"The twin scroll technology produces results similar to twin-turbo applications but in a smaller package with lower weight and cost," Roger Wood, President and General Manager, BorgWarner Turbo Systems said in a release.
"Our advanced technologies offer our customers the performance and value they need for today's marketplace."
The use of the new turbocharger and the output figures make the 535i Gran Turismo respond better than even eight-cylinder naturally aspirated engined cars.
The 535i accelerates from naught to sixty in 6.3 seconds, while at the same time maintaining a fuel consumption rating of 31.7 mpg (8.9 liters/100 km), enough to make it meet the Euro 5 and ULEV-II emission standards.
"The new engine sets new standards for efficiency in its class and outperforms the response of many eight-cylinder naturally aspirated engines. In addition to providing outstanding performance, the optimized twin scroll turbocharger significantly boosts fuel economy and lowers emissions," BorgWarner says in a release.
