Breaking news this morning. BMW USA just posted some photos on their website of the upcoming 2011 BMW 335is. As we mentioned last week, the 2011 BMW 335 Coupe and Convertible will be offered in the “is” version as well, an upgraded model with 324 horsepower at 5,900 rpm and 332 lb-ft in “regular mode”; an electronically-controlled overboost function can briefly increase torque under full load by another 37 lb-ft bringing the torque peak to 369 lb-ft.
The BMW 335is will also have the option of a DCT transmission.
It uses the same upgraded N54 six-cylinder turbocharged engine. The sportier 335is includes two transmission choices: DCT or Sport Automatic. All the other M-like elements are available as well.
Press release and photos are days, if not hours away, so stay tuned as always for the latest information and lots of high quality photos.
