Everybody already knows everything about the 2011 335is, but BMW officially announced it today anyway. And, as you know, it’s hot.
The new 335is rocks the same twin-turbo straight six as the 2010 335i, but now it packs an extra 20 horses and 32 pound-feet, bringing the totals to 320 and 332, respectively. There’s also a new overboost feature that can deliver 370 pound-feet of twist when you put your foot in it. BMW’s seven-speed Double Clutch Transmission (DCT) and launch control are new optional features, but the six-speed manual remains standard equipment. With the inhumanly fast DCT and computer-controlled launch, it can reach 60 miles per hour in five seconds flat. Top speed is electronically limited to 150 miles per hour. Not bad for a 3,600-pound car.
The 335is coupe starts at $50,525 and the base convertible will be listed for $59,075.
