Yeah I suppose a 400hp 335i would hurt M3 sales because unfortunately there are enough not so smart people who think HP means just about everything.

Just look at the WRX vs. STI. People say the STI isn't worth the extra money because the WRX is quicker to 60mph.

To me that's stupid because straight line acceleration is just ONE of MANY aspects of performance.

A 370z for example blows the doors of the Mazda MX-5 but I'd MUCH rather drive a Mazda MX-5.

Thanks Georg. I added the Car and Driver lap time.

Georg  8y ago

thats the tested car...

Viking  8y ago

Is this the same model tested by Car and Driver in their Lightning Lap #6? The car tested is listed as BMW 335is and has 320 HP and a weight of 3611 lbs. If it is, I have a lap time for it on Virginia International Raceway. If not, I or someone else should add the car.

Re: The Catalina Time Debate.
I think it probably had a special press car tune up and could do exactly 60mph in first gear. I do think there's no way in hell it could do under 4.5s without slicks and a nice rollout before the timing began.

This car was made to compete with the S4, not with the M3..

The V8 in the M3 sounds great, revs high, and is unbelievably responsive. Besides this, the M-division concentrate on handling, not 0-100. Look at the M3 track times - 25s faster around the Nordschleife than 335i coupe. And I'd take the V8 over the twin turbos!

They really took a strange path with the M3 V8 engine. They can never get as much power out of it as they could get out of twin turbo 335! Surely it would have been cheaper to use the 335, and get better performance!

335 has small turbos. they can get way more than 400hp of a 3l engine if they want to, but it just wont make sense because of the M3. but i seriously dont understand that marketing strategy. why didnt they just update the 335i with the 20hp and 50nm without splitting it into 2 different versions.. the price difference would be too small anyways and if it is not that small, customers would probably prefer to invst their money into an m3. you can get a 5000km 6months old m3 on the price of a new 335


User avatar

nitrostreet  10y ago

I think all manufacturers do it, it's kinda a something for everyone marketing strategy. The 335i is probably priced so that this group of buyers may be really wanting the M3, but right now all they can afford is the 335.

But as soon as they get that raise next year at work..........


User avatar

ky  10y ago

so why do they bother with the m3?

a 400+hp 335i would hurt M3 sales. a 400+hp 335i would hurt M3 sales.

BMW 335. Why can't bmw get over 400 bhp and over 400 lbs out of this engine----twin turbo!!!!!


User avatar

I see nitrostreet has some interesting comments on pontiac's stunning mid 60's performance. He is 100% dead right that it is the torque figures that count and NOT the horsepower. Those Pontiac engines were up to 400 cu in (7 litres) and they may have only been getting 300-400 hp, but they were getting over 500 lbs of torque! This is how they got low times, and again that rear overhang gives traction (Porche 911) Pontiac were very inovative and were always at the forfront of engine design. They put something interesting in that test car, maybe we won't ever know.
This goes back to my earlier comments, neither the bmw nor the audi have the bhp for their figures, but those torque nos arn't there either! I don't believe their weight can be hauled to 60 in those times with those engine outputs!!!! Something is WRONG. It simply isn't happening!

@ky
It looks like the 376 HP motor was used, I really don't know much else about the test but when I saw your discussions about the 0-100 km-h I remembered back in the late 70's, early 80's reading a Hot Rod magazine comment about the 3.9 second time.
I just remembered it was a Pontiac and thought it was something like a Catalina that did it-so I Googled that and the link I gave came up.
I tried to do some searching tonight to see if I could find the actual article online and I couldn't find one, but it was the March 1965 issue of Car & Driver that had the test in it.
Someone does have the issue for sale on EBAY but I'm not THAT interested in it.

Believe me, there's a lot of musclecar fanatics that wished the Catalina time didn't exist because it wasn't even a Musclecar, just a tank with the right amount of rear overhang (massive traction), gear ratio, and Torque (Torque is what launches a car, not HP) to get the job done.
You can believe the time or not, but it was set by C&D, it was verified by Hot Rod, Car Craft, and virtually every musclecar magazine at the time.
Contact any Musclecar expert and ask him if you don't believe me, it was a pretty well known fact.

I see the Pontiac link, they have so many engine mods going on here, who knows what they did to their test engines? Nonetheless Pontiac have a reputation for having made some of the best engines in the states. Which one was in that test car though? in those days a manufacture lived or died on their 0 to 60 times

Sorry Nitro, bu that 0-60mph in 3.9s for a 4170lbs 1965 Pontiac is just totally unbeliavable, theres no way that was stock, something had to have ben done to it. No Way!

I think the difference is that in this R&T comparison they use a rolling start which is not usually the case in Europe or Australia where dead starts are the norm. None of the tests in Australia have got close to these numbers but we only have the steptronic and autos. Nonetheless, another emphatic victory for the S4!

nitrostreet  10y ago

"I see the figures but the audi is too heavy to do 4.5 at 4000lbs as well. 330bhp is not eneugh, you need 500bhp for this"
@ky there are too many variables to come to your conclusion based only on HP.
For example back in 1965 Car & Driver tested a new '65 Pontiac Catalina weighing 4170 pounds and having 376 HP and it ran 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds. There was never a American musclecar on street tires that ever beat it to my knowledge.

this is no street races: any magazine that claim any tested numbers they have to check cars before they do otherwise they take full responsibility! and no magazines would do that no matter how it looks.
different number are depend on changes in condition drivers cars conditions and so on..


User avatar

ky  10y ago

this begs the question-----where do all these figures come from? because something is clearly wrong somewhere. do the manufacturers always know which cars are being used for tests or do the testers pull them at random so they can't be specially prepared?


User avatar

gt  10y ago

the sl 600 with 4200 lbs and 500hp would get you there in 4.1 as tested by the germans ams

any more questions??


User avatar

ky  10y ago

the sl55 does 4.5. it weighs 4000lbs. 500bhp and massive torque from a supercharger. these numbers make sense


User avatar

gt  10y ago

proof??


User avatar

ky  10y ago

road & track numbers cannot be right. the power and weight figures they quote for these cars cannot produce the performance stated


User avatar

gt  10y ago

a 500hp 4000lbs panamera turbo will get you to 60 mph (96km/h no 100km/h) in 3.3 as tested by car and driver

road and track seem optimistic!
