The rear-wheel drive version of the novelty reaches a speed of 100 km / h in 5.9 seconds. Depending on the wheel / tire combination, the maximum speed is limited to 209 km / h or 249 km / h.

The most powerful version of the M440i has a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six engine with a 48-volt mild hybrid that produces 382 hp. (500 Nm). The rear-wheel drive model accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 5.0 seconds. The top speed is limited to 209 km / h or 249 km / h, depending on which tire and wheel combination the purchaser chooses.
