On and on. Hp war is good as long as mfr keeps fuel consumption increase to the minimum (1 or 2mpg more).

Imagine the mpgs we can get if they stuck with 1980's HP... 95hp was ALOT!!!!

Google or Internet

Usually, Roundel magazine.
Let's think about the trend here for F10 555?(replacement of 550)

Back to E39 540 4.4L engine cranks out 280ish hp, and 530 did 225hp
Then E60 545 4.4L cranks out 325hp, and 530i did 225hp
Then E60 550i 4.8L cranks out 360hp, and 530i did 258hp
For future F10, could it be 555 and displacement is 5.0L or 5.2L and cranks out roughly 400hp, and 535 will be 3.2L and 325is hp?
Late F10 will have 425ish hp depending out our friend MBZ and Audi.
On and on. Hp war is good as long as mfr keeps fuel consumption increase to the minimum (1 or 2mpg more).
these petro engines mite be out dated then and the trend will be ele. cars or biofuel

Yeah.... that, and the fact that you can't possibly allow the general public to drive around with a tank of liquid Hydrogen. It's like a bomb ready to go off at a moment's notice.

There is only one word to describe the thought of some country bubba driving around with liquid H2. YIKES!!!

So they used Exx only because E stands for Entwicklung. They went to F because they didn't want to go to 3 digits?
