BMW S55 3 liter engine

S55 3 liter biturbo engine presented at Detroit

When BMW announced that they will be dropping the S65 4 liter V8 engine, a lot of fans reacted quite badly, as the engine was the heart and soul of their ride.

On the other hand, there are those that are all for the new 3 liter S55 engine set to replace the S65 on the new F80 BMW M3 and F82 BMW M4.

At the recent Detroit Motor Show, the German car maker took the time to present not just the new models they are so proud of (and for good reasons), but also the new power house, which got a stand all for itself. For my two cents, I am all for the change and really don’t understand those who cling to the “old ways”.

The 3 liter biturbo S55 is smaller than its predecessor, yet it produces more horses and more torque while keeping the weight way lower. In conclusion, there is no objective reason why this new engine should not be welcomed with open arms. For slightly more details, watch video below.
