2007 335I SEDAN  [0.00]
Twin turbo BMW 7 Series spotted at the Nurburgring

Check out BMW new addition to the Twin Turbo family. So i guess 335i with twin turbo. 535i is twin turbo. 735i is also twin Turbo?If it is repost, im sorry . i just want to share new addition to the Twin Turbo family
Edmunds said something about the 7 series with twin turbo..

Our latest spy photos from the Nurburgring reveal an interesting bit of information about the 2010 BMW 7 Series. It appears as though the 7 Series will get a twin turbo V8 when it goes on sale in 2009. Two big intercoolers up front are a clear tip off, but we couldn't verify which V8 is sitting behind them. Our best guess at this point? It's the M3's 4.0-liter unit as it already cranks out around 415hp in normally aspirated form, so a turbocharged version with 500+ horsepower is clearly feasible.

Actually I just got in this month's BMW magazine in the mail. They had an article talking about the 3.0 straight 6 twin turbo AND a V8 twin turbo.

At first I was confused because I was pretty sure the 535i uses the same straight six as the 335i but now seeing that a 7 series is coming out with a twin turbo, the V8 twin turbo statement in the magazine makes sense now.

There is no way the engine will be a turbo M3 engine, the compression is too high to turbo it iirc. It will be the V8 out of the X5/current 750i with a bit of an update and the turbos slapped on.

Rumor has it that it will be a twin turbo N62B44 engine. It's the engine in the 545/645/745/X5 from 2002 - 2005.

I'm sure the OP meant petrol engines. The 535d has been around for a few years and the turbos on the 535d are sequential unlike the 535i.
