February 9, 2010 at 8:23 pm

BMW recently revised the styling of its 3-Series Coupe models for and also gave it a new version of their much anticipated twin-turbo inline-6 engine. And now they are launching an even hotter version of this model called the 335is, in which the N55 engine churns out even more power!

So thanks to that little “s” in the car’s name, the 3.0 liter six-cylinder Turbo engine develops 320 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque.

Top speed of the BMW 335is will be electronically limited to 150 mph. The BMW 335is Coupe performs 0-60 mph runs in 5.0 seconds with the optional 7-speed DCT and 5.1 seconds with the manual 6-speed. The BMW 335is Convertible, meanwhile, requires only 5.2 seconds for the 0-60 run whether equipped with the 6-speed manual or optional 7-speed DCT. Maximum rated horsepower of 320 is achieved at 5900 rpm, and nominal peak torque output of 332 lb-ft is achieved from 1500 – 5000 rpm.

Temporary peak torque of 370 lb-ft is available under special high-load circumstances, such as when overtaking at higher speeds. The drag coefficient (Cd) is 0.30 for the BMW 335is Coupe and 0.31 for the BMW 335is Convertible. EPA fuel efficiency estimates will be available closer to the on-sale date for each model and are expected to closely follow the figures of the standard BMW 335i Coupe and Convertible, respectively. The vented brake rotors are the same sizes as on the standard BMW 335i Coupe and Convertible, measuring 13.7″ front and 13.2″ rear.

The 335is also comes with a distinguished appearance thanks to the M Sport front and rear fascias and side skirts and a body-color rear diffuser. It also get M suspension, M Sport steering wheel, sport seats, anthracite headliner, M door sills, M driver’s footrest, M gearshift knob, and high-quality stainless steel sport pedals.
