Exclamation Mercedes Dies-otto 1.8L Turbo - 285bhp / 295Nm !!!

Just look at those figures.
1.8Litre Turbocharged engine
-> 285bhp
-> 295Nm
(not so great!?? ) well then ... all this with a FANTASTIC fuel economy of
39 Miles per Gallon = 17kmpl~ in a car the size of an S-Class.

Guys this is Mercedes' new Dies-Otto engine which carries the benefits of a Diesel Engine over to an Unleaded Gasoline engine. It features
Direct Gasoline Injection, Turbocharging and Variable Compression.

Mercedes will showcase this technology in their new F700 concept luxury sedan at the Frankfurt motor show next. Here's the Link I googled for more info on this engine technology. I could'nt find anything on the Mercedes website though.

I really hope Mercedes bring this technology into the market "SOON". It is torture to see such good performance left to protoype's or research labs or concept vehicles and nothing more.

All your thoughts please

Seriously imagine putting that small engine in a smaller car like a Swift for instance. Hahahaaaaa I feel evil inside me I tell ya. I'll be able to rip the front suspension off the swift with all that power and torque. Or maybe put that engine in nice small light rear wheel drive !

Gasolene Direct Injection has been hapenning for quite some time. Fiat markets this as JTS (Jet thrust stoichiometric) in Alfa romeos. However the Power output of this Mercedes application is staggering.

Acheived thru? Valve timing? I guess they were using solenoid actuated valve operation right? Which makes it independent of any cam profiles etc and now can be opened and closed at any angle.

Dude I have no idea. I hope the magazines and journo's write a lot about this engine that way the company will be pressurized in bringing this engine in to production (if they're not planning to, that is). Well whatever it is I hope its soon. Don't want the excitement to fizzle out when bunch of other car makers have a competing technology for this one. Am I right?

"I Don't Ride Faastt Bay-Beh. I FLAAA LOWW!!" these lines

i so wish too otherwise you would have another company claiming to be the first to bring in the technology. it would make one hell of a difference in the car industry.
