BorgWarner's successful and longstanding partnership with Daimler has produced
several milestones in advanced turbocharging technologies. In 2008,
BorgWarner's efficient R2S technology for the C 220 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY and C
250 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY engines was the first two-stage turbocharging system
installed in a series-produced diesel engine for a Mercedes-Benz passenger
vehicle. The engine is the backbone of Mercedes-Benz diesel engine production
and is installed in several vehicle segments, including the first
four-cylinder engine in the history of the Mercedes S-Class, which launched in
2010. A further highlight is the close cooperation with Daimler in developing
the most powerful series production four-cylinder engine in the world
featuring the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG. Powered by BorgWarner's twin scroll
turbocharging technology, the newly developed 2.0-liter gasoline engine
delivers outstanding performance with an output of 265 kW (360 HP) and up to
450 Nm of torque while improving fuel economy and lower emissions, achieving
an average fuel consumption of 34 mpg (6.9 liters/100 km).

BorgWarner's highly engineered turbocharging technologies have also received a
first prize as one of ten Porsche Supplier of the Year Award winners in 2012.
