  1. 245 hp????

    thats it??
     
  2. yeah, i know, i was surprised too, I was expecting something 400hp plus. I mean its a Z9. But then again is a turbo deisel engine. Now why do they want to have a turbo diesel engine in a car like this?<!-- Signature -->
     
  3. maybe they just wanted to try something

  5. The reason for the turbodeisel is because of the massive amounts of torque supplied at low end (because it's a deisel), plus, it's probably got a massive turbo on it, giving it good top-end. It's not always about the number of horses under the hood. Torque is just as important,if not more important, than horse power.

  7. agreed, the torque on this thing is the real prize. 245hp is really a lot when mated with over 400ft-lbs of torque. well done BMW.
     
  8. but do u think that if it comes into production they'll add more Hp?
    and personnaly,i think a Z9 should go to 60 in less than 5 secs.
    what do u think?
     
  9. Right, 400 torque is great combined with 245 hp. but it should take the Z9 60 in about 4.5 to remotely compete with the 360 Modena
