The BMW 650 V8 4.8 Liter Engine has its origin in the 1954 auto industry. This initial production of the V8 saw its structure being made of light weight aluminum. It has two notable performance technologies, Valvetronic and double VANOS.
The Valvetronic system
This innovative feature of the BMW 650 V8 4.8 Liter engine, allows for the elimination of the need for a throttle butterfly valve. The result of this is that the motor of the V8 engine breathes easier, resulting in a more efficient utilization of fuels. An additional perk of this feature is that the emissions are minimal. Probably the most important element of this feature is the fact that it facilitates the accomplishment of maximum performance with various fuel types.
Double Vanos derives its name from the German term ‘variable Nockenwellenstreurung’ which is interpreted as ‘variable camshaft control.
This feature allows for a smoother engine performance. It results in more torque, elastic power and smoother idling. Superior performance and fuel economy at varying speeds is one hallmark features of the double Vanos. This is so since it adjusts the camshaft timing in order to secure the most optimum power release throughout the rev range. This is clearly an advantage in a world where harmful emissions, fuel economy and high performance are a concern.
Motorists should easily fall in love with this engine. It has the features drivers dream of and it offers affordability in terms of fuel economy while allowing the driver to feel good about its minimal negative impact on the environment.
