We can compare the BMW 1M twin-turbo to the supercharged Audi S4:

Engine Output:

1M................................................ ....... S4
335hp @ 5900 RPM................................. 333hp @ 5500-7000 RPM
332 lb-ft.* @ 1500-4500 RPM.................. 325 lb-ft. @ 2900-5300 RPM

*An additional 37 lb-ft of temporary torque is delivered with the standard turbo boost function.


Unladen Weight:

1M.................. S4
3362 lbs........... 3847 lbs


Fuel Economy:

1M.................. S4
19 MPG............. 18 MPG (city)
26 MPG............. 27 MPG (highway)



Both engines deliver practically the same power output from 3.0L and 6-cylinder and despite the Audi's weight disadvantage (485 lbs.) it manages to achieve the same fuel mileage as the 1M.
