    First Drive: 2007 BMW 335i Coupe

    Turbocharging is back!

    What’s even bigger news though is BMW’s return of turbocharging. While the standard 328i Coupe is powered by a 230-horsepower version of the magnesium/aluminum composite 3.0-liter six found in the sedans and wagons, the top-dog 335i uses two turbochargers to pump out 300 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque. This engine puts the 335i close to the outgoing M3’s power output, and simply outcranks it in the torque department. Mwerks recently spent some time with the new 335i, a car that will certainly make its mark on the automotive map.

    This thing is going to be sick with a computer tweak for the turbos.

    I read a artice about it in C&D, that car is simply amazing, and it will have a $40,000 price tag(est. by C&D) which for that car, with that kind of performance is a good deal! Not to mention its a 300hp coupe with a 6speed manual. They also said a AWD 4-door version will debut a year after!
