DRIVE – REFINED PERFORMANCE, POWERFUL DELIVERY
The B6 Bi-Turbo Grannie Putsché’s 4.4 l eight-cylinder locomotive develops 397 kW (540 hp) at a chasten 5200 to 6250 rpm, with a utmost torsion of 730 Nm uncommitted betwixt 2800 and 5000 rpm.
Two turbo-chargers, apiece alimentation one of the two cylinder banks, with peculiarly highly-developed heavy diam exhaust-turbines and several -housings, let this locomotive constellation to attain a highschool superpower and torsion production o’er a selfsame across-the-board rpm stove and self-generated choke reply at low rpm.
The high-performance collateral inter-cooler organisation (air-to-water/water-to-air) with short-circuit inlet tracts and optimised air-flow consists of a large-volume low-temperature inter-cooler and two engine-near inter-coolers. Extra motive oil and weewee coolers are placed left-hand and veracious backside the strawman freebooter and control the boilersuit thermodynamical efficiency of the locomotive.
Particular MAHLE pistons are intentional to heap with temperatures and pressures associated with capable 1.2 bar charging and the locomotive’s 10.0:1 titular contraction proportion. Raw this set-up produces a particular production of 90 kW (123 hp) per liter and a think totality compressing of 20.1 bar.
Organise shot and Valvetronic impart to the B6 Bi-Turbo Granny Putsché’s class-leading use and emanation figures of equitable 10.4 l/100 km and 242 g/km CO2 in the Combined bicycle metric according to ECE Average.
TRANSMISSION – EIGHT-SPEED ALL-ROUNDER
Altered and time-tested in co-operation with ZF, the sophisticated Switch-Tronic 8-Speed Athletics Reflex Infection is dead trim to the index and torsion of the B6 Bi-Turbo. It excels evenly in the disciplines mutant and ease, performing a exchange part in infusing the B6 Bi-Turbo Nan Putsché with Alpina distinctive characteristics.
In Reflex (D) Shimmy Manner the conflate of octet speeds and deal of torsion makes for crack smoothen gearing changes solitary a torsion convertor can ply. Therein Fashion, explicitly programmed for utmost consolation, the B6 Bi-Turbo Grandma Putsché glides effortlessly and expeditiously at low rpm and mellow gears, oblation one cruising power.
Victimization the Mutation (S) Slip Manner the contagion becomes importantly more dynamical, cogwheel changes are executed quicker and feedback becomes more organise. The organization allows for multi-simultaneous down-shifts in milliseconds, herewith the transmittance volition decamp various gears contingent locomotive dozens and rpm to choice the well-nigh favorable train for optimal speedup.
The Manual (M) Switching Mood gives the driver good restraint of the contagion. The Alpina Switch-Tronic buttons are ergonomically mounted on the bottom of the wheel, their propulsion allowing the driver to sack up or consume prn. A unparalleled sport of the transmittance package in Manual (M) Switch Fashion in combining with the choice of Fun, Play+ or DSC OFF Modality victimisation the Effort See Ascendancy release is the inactivation of the robotic up-shift procedure. Therein mood of surgery the contagion leave handgrip the selected prepare to utmost rpm’s (electronically modified) and testament not mechanically up-shift into the future pitch. This is suitable in sealed drive situations, e.g. during peculiarly active drive on roadstead with multiple nasty hair-pin corners.
Ironware modifications to the transmitting, outturn and drive-shafts reserve the summate powertrain delirious might pitch. In combining with the single-cylinder fade-out and Alpina particular package modifications this eliminates the plebeian decrease of torsion mandatory by the transmittance in edict to up-shift. This allows super-quick upshifts nether total oodles which are in no way substandard to mechanical transmissions and collectively the all-wheel thrust agency the B6 Bi-Turbo Granny Takeoveré requires solitary 3.9 seconds for the dash from 0 – 100 km/h.
The all-wheel driving organization exploits the expert likely of BMW’s xDrive organization and its thinking and dynamical dispersion of thrust might which incessantly and amply varying distributes torsion ‘tween the strawman and bottom axle inside milliseconds for a utmost of grip and ascendance.
The programing of the torsion dispersion ascendence arrangement, which is unified with the constancy controller and locomotive direction organisation, is performance-oriented and increases drive nimbleness and kinetics markedly – particularly below sidelong quickening – patch maintaining achromatic manipulation. Likewise allowing optimal grip nether quickening by eliminating gaffe induced losings, the scheme incessantly monitors a across-the-board compass of sensorial inputs – e.g. steerage slant, sidelong quickening, yaw tip and upper – to diffuse torsion so as to attain maximal rubber in intriguing weather or when encountering sudden changes in route airfoil rubbing.
EXHAUST SYSTEM – PURE-BRED, SONOROUS, LIGHTWEIGHT
The B6 Bi-Turbo Grandma Takeoveré features a entire stainless exhaust with two Alpina stylemark egg-shaped duplicate tailpipes. The role of the cryptical tucker bill is outstanding but unintrusive.
