    C/D test: BMW 335i automatic 0-60 in 4.9 sec.

    Damn this car is fast

    Quote:
    Even knowing what we know about the engine and tranny, we were still surprised just how quick the 335i automatic is. Indeed, this particular Arctic Metallic 335i coupe was the quickest 3-series coupe we've ever strapped our instruments to, and it also ended up right on top of an E46 M3, with 0-to-60-mph passes in 4.9 seconds and 100 mph in 12.1. The quarter-mile happened in a blistering 13.4 seconds at 106 mph, 0.2 second and 1 mph quicker than the 335i manual we tested last year.


    C/D TEST RESULTS:
    Zero to 60 mph: 4.9 sec
    Zero to 100 mph: 12.1 sec
    Zero to 140 mph: 26.7 sec
    Street start, 5-60 mph: 5.5 sec
    Standing 1/4-mile: 13.4 sec @ 106 mph
    Top speed (governor limited): 145 mph
    Braking, 70-0 mph: 156 ft
    Roadholding, 300-ft-dia skidpad: 0.91 g

    FUEL ECONOMY:
    EPA city/highway driving: 20/29 mpg
    C/D observed: 18 mpg

    Hmmm... makes me think this press car was a little hot ;-)

    Re: C/D test: BMW 335i automatic 0-60 in 4.9 sec.

    Maybe, and I assume there was some heavy torque braking involved off the line, BUT:

    Lightning Strikes Twice: Round 2 of our performance benchmark at Virginia International Raceway-prepare for a few surprises.

    But what floored us was that the 335i's best lap (3:10.5) was 1.2 seconds quicker than the M coupe's. It's a case of neutral handling over outright speed. Whereas the M coupe had understeer at turn-in that switched to oversteer at the exit, the 335i was nearly perfectly balanced everywhere and made up most of its time in the region between the braking zone and turn apex. The 335i does everything remarkably well, which is why many of us at Car and Driver think it's the best all-around car in the world.

    Compare that to the RS4 lap time:

    Quote:
    The closest comparative car this time around was the BMW 335i coupe, which also has decent-sized rear seats. The BMW was almost one second quicker around VIR, despite dramatically lower peak speeds on the straights.

    Maybe this car was hot as well, or maybe they're just all hot

    Re: C/D test: BMW 335i automatic 0-60 in 4.9 sec.

    theyre all just hot ...
