    Edmunds tests the N54 powered 740i - 0-60 in 5.5, 1/4 mile in 14.1 @ 100

    The new 7 series is a beautiful car. We never thought a 6 cylinder would really do it justice but times have changed with the BMW turbo motors. The N54 twin-turbo 6 cylinder offers great performance in the 4300 pound 7 series. 0-60 in the mid 5 second range with 100 mph trap speeds? Not bad at all. Check out the edmunds review and the data panel below.

    C&D tested it before and they claimed 5.1 , we have a 740i in family and i believe Edmunds numbers are closer to the real world numbers.

    Can you imagine the number of 'WTF' moments from drivers of sporty cars, after they've been killed by a giant, tuned 740i!

    this engine was available for 7-series since early 2009 ,even before they started putting N55 in 3-series. so it doesn't mean they chose N54 because it was a better engine , they chose because there were no other choices

    No, they had it available from the beginning. They just haven't switched to the N55 yet in it for whatever reason.
