New 394bhp Quad-turbo Diesel Engine For The BMW 750d xDrive

May 4, 2016

BMW will be introducing a new quad-turbo 3.0 litre engine (diesel) to their 7 Series range. Making the announcement at the Vienna Motor Symposium, this awesome car will be known as the 750d xDrive.

Featuring 2 low pressure and 2 high pressure turbochargers it will provide more power than the tri-turbo, however, BMW say that the quad-turbo is 5% more fuel efficient, making it very appealing to those who are looking for style and performance.

Claiming the 750d xDrive can reach 0-62mph in under five seconds, and with a top speed of 155mph, BMW believe the engine can give more torque, however, the gearbox is at its handling limit.

In theory four turbos means that it will have strong low down response, due to the 2 low-pressure turbos, but will also pack a real high-end punch. The advanced four-wheel drive system makes this luxury saloon ideal for countries that have months of snow and freezing driving conditions.

Due next year, the 750d xDrive will probably be featured in the top of the range BMW 7 Series and unfortunately won’t be available as a right-hand drive, so it’s unlikely to be seen in the UK.
