This coupe will be one of the first BMWs to use an advanced twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline six. To be introduced in a range-topping 335Ci model, it gets new direct injection technology, unveiled in Geneva and dubbed HPI (High Precision Injection) in combination with BMW's existing Variotronic system. The engine betters today's naturally aspirated 3.0-liter inline six by 41 hp at 306 hp. Torque peaks at a solid 300 lb-ft across a band of revs stretching from 1500 to 5800 rpm.

actually the word is now that the U.S. won't get the turbo engine that the rest of the world gets, instead we're apparently getting a 3.5L naturally aspirated I6 with around the same horsepower. Either way it'll be a big bump in hp from the current coupe, or even the current E90 sedan.
