I'd like to volunteer to be a mod for the sole purpose of burning these comments with fire.

By the way, loans are evil.

I had a dream to start my organization, but I didn't have enough amount of money to do it. Thank God my dude recommended to use the business loans. Thus I received the short term loan and made real my old dream.

Why they think that an avarage driver is 68 kg? In my opinion 90 % of the adult male populatuion is over 68 kg in Europe.

@inline6

don´t mix EU weight with kerb weight... EU weigt is just a norm European (Directive 95/48/EC) to scale today cars sold in the EU... thats the number writen in the car paper..

kerb/curb weight is ALWAYS without passengers and luggage


User avatar

Inline 6 rules  11y ago

Mass is 2045 kg, because the EU keb weight (+75 kg) is 2120 kg. Thanks!

Putting Luggage in a car, counts as the weight? wow, thats stupid, just take the damned luggage out...


User avatar

Inline 6 rules  11y ago

Because kerb weight means the weight of the car with full tank and a 68 kg \"driver\" and 7 kg \"lugagge\". It\'s a German regulation for car weight.

Why the hell would you add luggae into a car when adding it?


User avatar

Inline 6 rules  11y ago

Please add the mass data! It includes a 68 kg driver and 7 kg lugagge.


User avatar

Inline 6 rules  11y ago

The mass is 2120 kg. Please add it!

Yeah, I know the smaller turbos have less lag, I was just saying if you had a 1/4" or so more stroke the extra torque it would make without any lag at all would easily make up the difference. It can be done a million different ways, I guess.

As far as the triple exhaust that would be a neat idea, and have a very distict tone to it, along those lines have you seen the Vette muffler that has the electric cutout to open it up at the flick of a switch.

Also, since they consider tri-turbo intake, they should also consider triple exhaust! And it would be a real triple exhaust, unlike Ferrari 456 faker.

I looked at BMW's triple and it says they got more HP and torque out of the setup but they could have just added .250 inch stroke to the crankshaft and probably got the same results for a lot less money. (They wouldn't have gotten the press coverage the triples gave them, though, if they had just stroked the crank a little)

They use multiple Turbos only for one thing - less inert Turbo boost performance (less Turbo lag). Three small turbos will perform much more fluently than one big.

A triple turbo would probably have to be on a 6 or 12 cylinder engine, it could be put on a motor not divisible by 3 but it would make the cylinder back pressures uneven and become a tuning nightmare without some form of (restrictive) exhaust baffling to try and even it out.

@wads

bi-turbo is used in Germany to name engines with two turbos ... in the english speaking world they name them twin turbo...

bi-turbo has nothing to do with the turbo size ..no matter if one big and one small or two equal turbo ...

"bi" in the word "bi-turbo" comes from the latin word two/2 ...the first ever car with "twin-turbo" was the "Maserati Biturbo"


User avatar

Yaspaa  11y ago

I can't think of one. Here's an aftermarket one on a Supra.

There are two types of twin/bi turbos but yes I think they are both the same..... twin turbo seems more often applied to two turbos of the same size while bi seems to be used more for sequential small/large set-ups. BMW were considering a triple turbo X5 but not sure if they dropped that idea?


User avatar

BumRush  11y ago

Speaking of, is there a car out ther with a Triple Turbo?


User avatar

!!!!  11y ago

Nothing. Bi-Turbo and Twin Turbo is the same. Just a different name for the same thing. Bi means two. Twin means two.

Mr.X  11y ago

I think this engine will also be used in a possibly 2012 Mercedes S65 AMG with 620 - 650 BHP and the torque restricted to 1000 NM as usual. It is just a guess. Anyway, hope this 5.5 Litre Biturbo dosen't suffer from turbo lag. It is amazing that manufactores are now moving to forced induction. The best example is the New M5. Hope it too dosen't suffer from turbo lag. By the way, what is the difference between biturbo and twinturbo ?

rxbkrs  11y ago

Will this new engine be included in the E 63 and C 63 models?


User avatar

As long as hp goes up it's all good! :D

Audi is the same. Turbo/Biturbo S models then high rpm n/a S models now turbo/supercharged S models.


User avatar

FastestLaps  11y ago

What's up with Mercedes philosophy? They used to have forced induction v8 then went to 6.2 n.a. and now back to forced induction :D

This is the new S 63 AMG with a brand new 5.5 liters biturbo engine. It will be on the market in summer 2010.
