The Engine and Speed
The new BMW M850i is equipped with twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V-8 engine. And that is tuned to deliver a 523 horsepower of torque. The engine helps exclusively to an eight-speed automatic gearbox, and its output is dispatched to the wheels. So, this claims the series to be a rear-biased all-wheel-drive system. BMW said that the new M850i has a top speed of 155 mph and will hit the 60 mph from 0 in just 3.6-second. On the other hand, drivers claim that its bit quicker than said as well.
The power is 523 horsepower at 5,500 rpm; torque is 553 lb-ft from 1,800 to 4,600 rpm. All that force is transmitted to all four wheels through the everywhere ZF eight-speed automatic transmission. The M850i’s torque split is rear-wheel biased and continuously variable, though under certain conditions as much as 50 percent of the engine’s torque can be sent to the front half-shafts.
