Most of the facts were already public: a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 makes 560 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Courtesy of that equipment, the car can run from 0-62 mph (100 km) in 4.2 seconds. Stopping power will also improve with optional carbon-ceramic brakes, though the real news is fuel economy.
European standards are different than those in the U.S., so much so that it’s not really an accurate measurement for the North American market, but this is still the fist we’ve heard from the brand. Despite those impressive performance figures, the Bavarian brand is still boasting 28.5 mpg and a 30 percent cut in consumption over previous models thanks to engine start/stop technology.
Finally, we know it will cost $113,995 for the coupe or $130,000 for the soft top.
