BMW has released a fancy CGI animation promo for their BMW EfficientDynamics engine family featuring TwinPower Turbo.

The video starts off with an android of sorts virtually building an engine. It goes on to demonstrate BMW's "Perfect Cylinder" combustion via turbo, Valvetronic and direct injection technology.

Now this is where things get interesting as the android continues to build a four cylinder engine mounted in a vehicle's engine bay longitudinally. BMW loyalists might want to look away at this part as the android then takes another 4-cylinder turbo and mounts it transversely. This indicates a front wheel drive vehicle, which BMW has already announced, but not without an apprehensive response from purists. They fear the move will dilute BMW's ability to make cars with great driving dynamics - a characteristic the BMW brand has become known for.

The video continues with the modular engine being expanded to 6-cylinder and then it's cut in half as a 3-cylinder and fitted to a new smaller vehicle presumably the upcoming i3.
