Preview of the BMW 335is

There have been leaked photos of from BMW about the 335is. The BMW 2011 335is has a more powerful version of the twin turbo N54 under its hood. Add to the improved powerplant a better handling and improved aggressive looks. The 335is finds it place right just in between the standard 335i and the performance version M3.

The new BMW 335is can be purchased either as a coupe or a convertible and delivers the performance expected of the brand. The 335is will have an output of 320 horsepower with a 332 lb-ft of torque. The roar of the engine is a bit lower than what you get from the 2009 Z4 which also uses the sDrive35is at 335 horsepower.

The power you get from the BMW 335is is more than enough though since you will be getting quick spool turbo technology giving you the 332 lb-ft torque at 1,500 to 5,000 rpm. There is also a boost function which pumps things up to 370 lb-ft in short blasts.
