More power for the engine in the new BMW M4 DTM: Facts on the 500-hp plus BMW P66/1.

Powerful and reliable: these two terms perfectly sum up the demands placed on the V8 engines in the DTM. The six BMW drivers have just one engine each for the entire season. With this in mind, the engineers and mechanics at BMW Motorsport gave top priority to absolute precision during the production phase. Here is the lowdown on the BMW DTM engine, the BMW P66/1.

Munich. Powerful and reliable: these two terms perfectly sum up the demands placed on the V8 engines in the DTM. The six BMW drivers have just one engine each for the entire season. With this in mind, the engineers and mechanics at BMW Motorsport gave top priority to absolute precision during the production phase. Here is the lowdown on the BMW DTM engine, the BMW P66/1.

 

In 2017, DTM regulations allow a larger diameter – 2 x 29 millimetres – for the air restrictors, through which the engine draws its combustion air. This results in an increase in engine power to over 500 hp.

 

The engine aspirates 260 litres per second – that is 2,000 times as much as a human breathes.

 

The pistons in the BMW P66/1 accelerate 600 times faster than a lunar rocket.

 

The pistons in the engine cover a combined distance that is the equivalent of travelling from Munich to Sydney over the course of a season.

 

In one season, 1.3 million ignition sparks are generated in one engine.

 

The water pump shifts about 19,000 litres per hour. At this rate, it would take just 20 seconds to fill a bath.

 

All the power generated by the engine is transferred to the powertrain and rear wheels through screws weighing just 130 grams.

 

The oil is pumped through the engine roughly 10,000 times in one season.

 

Over the course of the season, enough heat for 60 sauna sessions is removed via the oil.

 

920 technical drawings were created for the engine. Placed next to each other, this is enough to cover more than a full tennis court.

CO2 emission information.

Os valores do consumo de combustível, das emissões de CO2 e de consumo de energia aqui apresentados foram determinados de acordo com o Regulamento (CE) 715/2007 na versão aplicável no momento da homologação. Os valores referem-se à versão base de um veículo na Alemanha e na gama apresentada é considerado o equipamento opcional e os diferentes tamanho de jantes e pneus para a versão selecionada.

Os valores dos veículos já se baseiam no novo Regulamento WLTP e são traduzidos para valores equivalentes aos do NEDC de modo a garantir a comparação entre os veículos. [Relativamente a estes veículos, no que se refere a impostos relacionados com o veículo ou outras taxas baseadas (no mínimo, entre outros) nas emissões de CO2, os valores de CO2 podem ser diferentes dos valores aqui apresentados.]

As especificações da eficiência de CO2 são determinadas de acordo com a Diretiva 1999/94/CE e o regulamento europeu na sua versão atual aplicável. Os valores apresentados são baseados no consumo de combustível, valores de CO2 e de consumo de energia de acordo com o ciclo NEDC para a classificação.

Para mais informações sobre os dados oficiais do consumo de combustível e as emissões específicas de CO2 dos automóveis de passageiros novos, consulte as diretrizes sobre o consumo de combustível, emissões de CO2 e consumo de energia elétrica de automóveis de passageiros novos, disponíveis gratuitamente em todos os Concessionários BMW.
