New Beemer 5


#1

Bloody amazing tech - 265 bhp/620 mn. 5.7 0-60 - all from a 2 litre!!


#2

It’s a 530d not a 2 litre.

does look amazing though and I couldn’t care less about techy cars.


#3

I don’t think that the number has anything to do with the engine size any more


#4

Still relates to 3 litre

For the diesel line-up, the 518d, 520d, 520d Efficient Dynamics and 525d models will receive BMW’s turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder unit:.

The 520d will be available from launch, with the same 188bhp and 295lb ft as the model it replaces. Its 0-62mph time is 7.6sec, while top speed is 148mph. Fuel economy has risen by 6.1mpg to 68.9mpg and CO2 emissions improve by 12g/km to 107/km in six-speed manual guise.

Shortly after launch, the 520d will be joined by an even more frugal 520d EfficientDynamics model said to return a class leading 72.4mpg and 102g/km of CO2.

Ranged above these traditional volume-selling diesels is the 530d, which uses a 261bhp version of BMW’s turbocharged 3.0-litre six-cylinder diesel engine. It will be complemented later on by the 535d-replacing 540d, which uses the same engine tuned to 316bhp.

I had a 330d a few years ago and the engine was fantastic, unbelievably smooth for an oil burner.

Yeah sorry…


#6

I should think so too. Fancy starting a thread about a new kunttransportenwaggon when there is a perfectly good thread about piggysausagetrucks already running.

:rage:


#7

Porsches aren’t cars they are just pimped up geriatric mobility carts.


#8

5.7 0-60
Is it a fucking slug?


#9

Yes


#10

Enough time for Sunday lunch there.


#11

Difference is that you could have the lunch inside out of the rain.


#12

You mean stuck in traffic.


#13

In the warm in Winter and the cool in Summer.


#14

Unfortunately, Shmee has a face that you’d never tire of punching… :roll_eyes:


#15

Nope, don’t see what you mean.
Dress for the occasion innit.


#16

I don’t own a heated leather romper suit.


#17

Neither do I.
Are you thinking of sodbury?


#18

Sodders would be a leather gimp suit filled with warm piss rather than a heated romper.


#19

Dead you mean ‘is’ rather than ‘would be’ ??

:mask:


#20

He does say it’s 4cyl on the video, but I think he done fucked up.
