2011 BMW 335i Coupe Sleek and powerful

2011 BMW 335i Coupe

Crimson red with a cream beige interior, the subject of this weekend’s road test turned heads and induced smiles.

“Now that is one that I would spend my own money for,” said our younger-generation parking garage attendant/car buff as he broke into a wide smile. That was not an insignificant comment since he sees virtually all of the test vehicles.

In fact the major change in the 2011 model is not visible until you open the hood and see the new turbocharged 3.0 liter six. It develops 300 horsepower at 5,800 rpm with peak torque of 300 lb-ft from 1,200 to 5,000 rpm with a 7,000 rpm red line. Our test car was EPA rated at 19-25 mpg of premium petrol. I got 22 mpg.

BMW claims that the new engine burns cleaner, and produces better gas mileage than the previous turbo six. And it is about 150 pounds lighter; no bad thing since reducing automobile weight is the top goal of designers these days in order to improve gas mileage while enhancing performance.

Top speed is 130 miles per hour, and that increases to 150 if you check the optional sport package.
