Caitlin Duncan BMW, 2017-11-04 19:54:37. The first ever M Performance model in the X3 lineup sets new standards with its sharper dynamics, high level of exclusivity and standout emotional appeal. The 3.0-liter M Performance TwinPower Turbo technology 6-cylinder inline engine ensures the all-new BMW X3 M40i sits at the top end of the model range. Output of 355 hp propels the flagship X3 from 0 to 60 mph in a best in segment time of 4.6 seconds. The X3 M40i also includes a wealth of model-specific set-up and equipment features, which both underpin and lend added impact to the exceptional performance credentials of this SAV. The BMW X3 M40i is equipped with an 8-speed Steptronic Sport automatic transmission with Launch Control. This transmission is a perfect match for the engine‘s dynamic characteristics and can be operated using shift paddles on the steering wheel. In addition, its xDrive all-wheel-drive system has a far more pronounced rear bias than on the other model versions. The Performance Control feature integrated into the DSC system and acting on the rear wheels has been reconfigured to produce agility and traction for which M Performance models are known for. Moving into the cabin, Sport seats and "M40i" logos adorning, for instance, the front door sills and instrument panel, provide visual emphasis of the car‘s performance capabilities.

Alongside them are additional lateral air inlets, which make this top-performing athlete appear even wider and more aggressive.

This very short opening time keeps the fresh gas flow comparatively small. When the piston moves back up again after reaching bottom dead center, the compression phase starts later than usual. This allows a high geometric compression ratio of 10.0:1 - the combustion then takes place in a relatively small volume. In comparison to the short compression phase, the expansion phase is extended, which results in a high level of efficiency.

From 1,900 to 5,000 rpm, the 2.9 TFSI supplies the crankshaft with an impressive 600 Nm (442.5 lb-ft) of torque, which is 170 Nm (125.4 lb-ft) more than on the previous model. With its 331 kW (450 hp) - which equates to a power ratio of 155.5 hp per liter displacement - the unit accelerates the new RS5 Coupe from zero to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 3.9 seconds and thus six tenths of a second faster than before. If the customer orders the RS dynamic package, Audi increases the electronically restricted top speed from 250 km/h (155.3 mph) to 280 km/h (174.0 mph).

Compared to sheet steel components made of many individual parts that are welded together, they are eight kilograms (17.6 lb) lighter. This construction allows a very stiff connection between the upper links and the body for the best-possible steering response - optimal conditions for dynamic handling.
Paige Dodd Audi, 2017-10-13 19:47:59. In comparison with the A5 Coupe, the Singleframe radiator grille appears broader and flatter thanks to its new honeycomb structure. It bears both the quattro lettering and the RS5 emblem. Beneath it, a blade in contrasting color runs between the air inlets, connecting these with one another. These also adopt the three-dimensional honeycomb structure and underline the dynamism of the RS5 Coupe.
Libby Wade Audi, 2017-10-13 19:50:59. In the classic Miller cycle, the reduced cylinder charge is detrimental to torque and power output. These aspects have been neutralized by Audi thanks to the implementation of turbocharging and the two-stage Audi valvelift system (AVS). The four camshafts of the 2.9 TFSI can each be adjusted by 50 degrees crank angle. At higher load and engine speed ranges, AVS closes the inlet valve later. The opening time increases from 130 to 200 degrees crankshaft angle, while at the same time the valve lift increases from 6.0 to 10.0 millimeters (0.2 to 0.4 in). Cylinder charging also increases considerably - the 2.9 TFSI revs up powerfully and delivers an impressive output.
