Hardtop convertible??? I see a ragtop

TTV10 will not be high revving, any TT motor is normally a low-end powerplant. It's just the physics of a compressor (or 2 in this case)... the difference in the amount of air flowing at 6,000 rpm vs. 8,000 rpm is huuuuge and the turbos themselves would have to be massive in order to handle the flow. We all know massive turbos = massive lag, and if you think about it that's almost the same characteristic of the high-revving NA. The motor would have to be spinning real fast to make good power, and then you're back where you started (a 10-cylinder gas guzzler).
BMW is adding forced induction to give the motors low-end grunt and help increase efficiency. Bye-bye 8,250 redline, you will be missed

Don't give up on the high revving engine yet..... If it is a torque monster, they need a new transmission.

These could be small snails for better low end torque.... This would be consistent with the 550 hp rumors.

Anyway, what color silk are you choosing for the sail hybrid system?

I think all this engine talk is sheer speculation. Nothing that has been said is concrete yet...I mean the words speak for themselves; "may end up with a new V10 twin-turbo". Don't get me wrong, I would love to have a high revving TTV10 to show Audi how it's really done but I won't get my hopes up until officials at BMW say so.

Well, first let me say that while NA motors are great, the next-gen biturbo variants will be awesome as well.

But to respond, they are putting in a new transmission, the DCT. And if they are small snails, which I agree they probably will be, that's where the rev-limit comes from, as the turbos will run out of steam up top.

True though, there still might be hope.... I suppose they could throw on a couple small snails to assist down low, allow revs to climb up to 8 and let the V10 do the rest regardless of FI. Hadn't thought of that before. Whatever happens, it'll be interesting for sure. I just hope they don't make it ugly (E63 = gorgeous!).

I understand, in a seperate thread, the current MDCT transmissions cannot handle big torque....

The only thing "wrong" with the current V10 is that it doesn't breathe well enough at low rpms to allow for efficient highway cruising....

....and it is missing about 100 hp.
