At the 2010 Detroit Auto Show, BMW will show its new Concept ActiveE alongside the BMW Z4 sDrive35is, as well as the North American unveiling of the twin-turbocharged inline-6 engine version of the 2011 BMW 740i and 740Li sedans. The German automaker just announced that it will also debut the 6-cylinder turbocharged version of the BMW 535i Gran Turismo.
The 535i Gran Turismo will be powered by BMW’s 3.0L 6-cylinder turbocharged engine making 300-hp at 5,800 rpm with a peak torque of 300 lb-ft available from 1,200 to 5,000 rpm. The engine will allow the 535i Gran Turismo to go from 0-60 mph in 6.2 seconds.
“This is the same level of performance as the current 3.0-liter twin-turbo six-cylinder but with the innovation of twin-scroll technology and the integration of VALVETRONIC, this new engine will be even more fuel efficient,” BMW said in a statement.
The BMW 535i Gran Turismo will go on sale with the 2011 Z4 Drive35is, 2011 740i and 740Li and the 550i Gran Turismo (unveiled at the 2009 LA Auto Show) in Spring 2010.
