BMW went into deep into "M" car history with the M1 Hommage , but that wasn’t as far as it could have. Racer X Design decided to go back to the beginning, and make a modern interpretation of the first car to wear the "M" badge with the M6 CSL.

BMW M6 CSL - why not?

Although design studies are not our favorite on TopSpeed, Racer X is a real design house, and has made something pretty striking. It took the current BMW M6 and added the livery from the original 70s 3.0 CSL. But the best part of this design is that it took the lines of the current car and shaped them into something more aggressive, and looks like it was inspired by Alfa Romeos .

BMW owners have had a love/hate relationship with the iDrive since it first appeared in 2002. Some loved the extra features it added to the cars, and others couldn’t understand how the company who builds the ultimate driving machine could possibly install something so complicated that it distracts from the road. Now in an effort to appease both sides, BMW is introducing a simpler, but still technology-filled, iDrive.

New iDrive generation for the BMW M3, M5 and M6

With the launch of the first official images of the facelift M3, BMW also announced that the 2009 M3, M5 and M6 will feature the new generation iDrive control system which will facilitate even easier activation and control of the most important entertainment, communication and navigation features as well as a number of other functions.
