BMW introduces the 2011 335is Convertible, featuring the award-winning, twin-turbocharged BMW inline six-cylinder engine, specially tuned and equipped to produce 320 horsepower and 332 lb.-ft. of torque from its 3.0-liters.
For the first time on a BMW 3 Series in the U.S., the 7-speed Double Clutch Transmission (DCT) with Launch Control is available as an option, in place of the standard 6-speed manual transmission.
The BMW 335is Convertibles has the attributes of rear-wheel drive, near-perfect 50-50 weight distribution, remarkably precise steering, and skillfully engineered suspension.
The BMW 335is Convertible is fitted with a new sport exhaust system to enhance the sound and responsiveness. Without being intrusive, the emotionally-charged character of the free flowing exhaust system is specially tuned to focus on the low frequency “rumble” sounds that are most enjoyed with the retractable hard top lowered. The system is designed to minimize the restriction of exhaust gas flow, which is always important for a turbocharged powerplant.
The 2011 BMW 335is comes with new high-depth LED taillights, new xenon adaptive headlights with LED-lighted corona rings, and the new hood which integrates with a freshened BMW kidney grille.
The 335is also gets new M Sport enhancements, which include comprehensive M aerodynamic elements, kidney grille surrounds in high gloss black, Shadowline black window trim, wing mirror caps in high gloss black, and standard 18-inch light alloy wheels in ferric grey color.
Base model estimated mpg: 17/26
Estimated starting price: $59,075
