New BMW M5 powertrain

http://www.mwerks.com/artman/publish...icle_537.shtml

Odd firing engine:( ,No double-clutch transmission, 200ms shift time.
Pretty underwhelming, so-so torque 384ft-lbs from 5 liters (hoping for 400)

The V10 is the only high-revving power unit to be featured in a series-production car. The M5's engine has ten cylinders, a cubic capacity of 5 liters and produces a maximum output of 507 bhp and a maximum torque of 384 lb-ft, making the M5 the most powerful final production model in the BMW line-up

High-revving V-10.... 384 lb-ft of torque.... Humm.... yea that torque number is a bit disappointing.

Not really.

The Viper V-10 only makes 141 more pounds of torque with 3.3L more displacement.

[3.3 Liter bashing]Which interestingly enough is the amount of torque the Intrepid 3.3 Liter engine makes[/3.3 Liter bashing]

Yea I don't have to rev the crap out of a Viper motor either to get those numbers.

Max torque is at 4,200 RPM, most likely with the BMW you have to take it up close to the 8250 red line just for that.

"Individual throttle butterflies help the engine to breathe freely

The naturally aspirated engine uses ten flow-optimized intake trumpets to "inhale" air from two intake plenums. Each cylinder has its own throttle, a feature typical of racing cars. All throttles are actuated simultaneously and are electronically controlled in order to make the engine highly responsive in the lower speed range, as well as to achieve an immediate response of the vehicle at the high end of the performance spectrum"


Man that motor has to be smooth....

Which one, the alternator/coolant pump or the power steering/air conditioning?

Variable capacity oil pump sounds cool, what oil does this thing use 0w-20?

Yeah but, from what they say the torque curve is pretty flat, so your getting around 384 lbs of torque through the whole rpm range!

In the exploded (used loosely) view of the engine

http://speed.supercars.net/IMG?viewP...005&m=BMW&o=M5

you can see two belts and two tensioners (what is between the starter (in the Vee) and the coolant output of the block? The REST coolant pump? throttle actuators?

the torque curve is somewhate cammy.

The rocket starts liftoff at 5500(power wise)
