Finally, Bmw revealed today the M Sports Package for the new 2011 5-Series Sedan. Developed by the BMW M GmbH, the new M Sports Package includes a new front bumper, a rear bumper with integrated air diffuser, M sports suspension, 18-inch alloy M light wheels featuring a double spoke design (19-inch wheels are also available as an option).
Inside, we find sports sears with Alcantara / fabric upholstery especially developed for the M Sports Package, M leather-clad steering wheel, M gear lever knob, the M footrest, an anthracite BMW Individual roof lining and M aluminium hexagon interior trim strips. As you can see, the M Sports package was unveiled on the 535d Sedan, which will also be introduced in September 2010.
This means that the model carries a 3.0-liter straight-six engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo and Common Rail direct injection develops a power output of 220 kW/300 bhp at 4,400 rpm and a maximum torque of 600 Nm.
The car can accelerate to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 5.7 seconds while the top speed achieved is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph). The BMW 535d Sedan achieves an average fuel consumption of 6.1 litres/100 km in the EU test cycle.
When it came out in September 2010, the BMW 535d Sedan automatically became a darling of car aficionados. The new sedan simply had power and functionality written all over it. Powered by an engine that implements BMW’s proprietary TwinPower Turbo technology, the 535d produces impressive numbers that will make anyone who is a fan of fast cars drool.
The car’s power rating, for instance, is at 220 kW. The car needs to be at 4,400 rpm’s to achieve that power rating, which translates to a horsepower of 300 bhp. However, the 535d only needs to deliver 1,750 rpm to reach the engine’s highest torque rating, which is 600 Nm.
The engine, which also has BMW’s Common Rail direct injection system, gives the sedan enough juice to quickly rocket from a standstill to 100 kilometers per hour. Specifically, it takes only 5.7 seconds for the 535d to accelerate to that speed.
Despite its power, the 535d is amazingly very fuel efficient. Tests during the prototype phase showed that the sedan has a range of 100 kilometers per 6.1 liters of fuel. This is made possible by the 2,000 bar max pressure rating of the fuel injection system. 535d also featured a revolutionary Variable Twin Turbo technology in its power train. A smaller supercharger powers the car in slower speeds.
The larger supercharger takes over when there is an increased demand for torque, specifically in higher speeds. 535d was the fifth entry to BMW’s 5 Series line of sedans. For a more efficient choice, consumers also had the option to look over the entry-level 520d.
BMW 520d’s 2-liter engine consumes only 4.9 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers. It also has a very small carbon footprint, with only 129 grams of carbon dioxide produced with each kilometer. 520d outputs a power rating of 135 kW or 184 bhp.
