BMW N62B36 N62 V8 Turbo 2001 to 2005
|Configuration||DOHC 90° V8|
The BMW N62 is a V8 DOHC piston engine which replaced the M62 and was produced from 2002–present. Compared with its M62 predecessor, it features variable valve timing for both the inlet and exhaust camshafts (called double-VANOS by BMW) and variable valve lift (called valvetronic by BMW). Like the M62, it has 4 valves per cylinder and fracture-split forged powdered metal connecting rods.
The N62 did not have a high-performance derivative, unlike the preceding M62 and succeeding N63. Instead, BMW produced the S85 V10 for the E60 M5 and E63 M6, and the S65 V8 for the E90 M3 being derived from the S85.
In the International Engine of the Year awards in 2002, the N62 won overall as well as claiming the "Best New Engine" and "Above 4-litre" categories.
