BMW twinturboFor those in the U.S. waiting for debatably the best handling diesel to arrive, BMW has recently announced that it will bring its 3.0L twin-turbo diesel engine to the U.S, but did not offer a time frame. (reports have suggested that it could come in late 2008?) This impressive twin-turbo engine is currently available in many of BMW’s European vehicles and was previewed the engine in its 3, 5 and 6-series cars at the 2007 Frankfurt auto show. Although BMW has not announced which models will get the 3.0 liter twin-turbo, it is likely to be the 3 and 5 series. The European 335d is capable of 35 mpg while producing 286 horsepower and 427 lb-ft of torque.
