Senner Tuning Just Put the BMW M3 Into A Class of Its Own
There is no doubt that the new generation BMW M3 is like no other before. BMW gave it an interesting look thanks to that massive grille, and, for the first time ever, it has an all-wheel-drive system. Add to this an amazing 503 horsepower under the hood, and you will see why the new M3 enjoys a lot of attention from tuners lately. Especially the more powerful M3 Competition. Senner is one such tuner, and it’s put some pretty extensive work into the new M3.
Manhart MH3 GTR: When 650 Horsepower is the Key to Satisfaction
The current generation BMW M3 launched in 2020, and it brought a lot of firsts for the name. It will be the first model to be offered in two versions, the first to feature an all-wheel-drive system, and the first to have a massive kidney grille. The M3 Competition - with its 503 horsepower under the hood is also the most powerful M3 ever. But Manhart decided there was room for a lot more, so the tuner created the MH3 GTR - a package that updates both the look and the performance of the M3 Competition.
Two Modified German Performance Sedans Settle A Decades-long Rivalry
You’ll probably agree that when it comes to performance cars, there aren’t many rivalries as epic as Mercedes AMG versus BMW M. With that said, Officially Gassed has gathered two of the hottest offerings from both camps so they can clash in an epic drag battle. It’s the BMW M3 F80 versus the Mercedes AMG C63S W205. Both performance sedans have been built to Stage 3 and make supercar power, but that’s where the similarities end.
AC Schnitzer Will Make Your BMW M240i Better than the BMW M2
When we talk about modified BMWs, one name that often comes to mind is AC Schnitzer. The tuner based in Aachen, Germany has been modifying the already-capable BMW models since it was founded in 1987. Now, the mad scientists from AC Schnitzer have turned their efforts to the 2022 BMW M240i. The Bavarian pocket rocket packs plenty of performance from the factory, but this version of the BMW G42, modified by AC Schnitzer, promises to give the range-topping BMW M2 a taste of its own medicine. Have they created a better M-car than BMW’s M-division?
Alpina D4 S Gran Coupe Tries To Keep Diesel Relevant
In the States, people show next to zero interest for diesel-powered cars, but in Europe, they are still a big thing. Gasoline-powered cars are starting to see more attention, and while you may think that emissions have a lot to do with this, you are wrong: the main reason is the price of diesel which is trending higher than the price of gas.
Well, in a world where people are not paying much attention to diesel cars anymore, Alpine launched the DS4 Grand Coupe. Based on the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe, the DS 4 takes its design inspiration from the Alpina B4 and the engine from the D3 S. The model is priced at €79,700 (about $84,000 at the current exchange rates) and deliveries should start in early September.
Manhart MHX5 700 - Pushing the BMW X5 M to New Levels
Manhart has a long list of MHX tuning programs. The most recent one is the MHX6 700 based on the BMW X6 M Competition and it was shortly followed by the MHX5 700 based on the X5 M Competition. The model was first announced back in January, but a new version was just announced since a new customer opted for a more extreme version. As with all the other kits, the MHX5 700 gives the X5 M Competition a power boost, but also an updated look to both inside and out.
The Alpina B3 is Just a 3 Series That’s Better in Every Way
After the 3 Series received the anticipated facelift in May 2022, it was inevitable for the BMW’s luxury line, Alpina to release the B3 models, along with the diesel-operated D3 S. Similar to the updated 3 Series, Alpina brings both visual, performance, and technological upgrades to the respective models with a hint of exclusiveness.
Formula Drift BMW M2 Attempts To Go Fast In a Straight Line, But A BMW 318is Time Attack Monster Has Something To Say About It
Hoonigan’s “This vs That” has given us some of the most epic drag race battle, we have ever seen. If a build is crazy fast and weird, it’s bound to show up on their channel, and this time, we have two very different BMWs squaring off against each other. The first bonkers machine is a BMW M2 Formula Drift car while the second one is a BMW E36, built specifically for Time Attack. Neither of the cars is meant to race on a drag strip, so it should be very interesting.
2022 Manhart MH5 800 Black Edition
While the world is waiting for the next-generation BMW M5 - a sports car that will offer a hybrid powertrain - Manhart focused its attention on the current M5 Competition. The new kit - called MH5 800 Black Edition - is all about offering more power under the hood, but there are a few changes offered for both, the exterior and the interior.
A Bold Design Could Foreshadow The Next BMW M4 GTR
BMW makes some of the best performance cars, but the company’s design language has been quite divisive in recent times. This is especially true for the BMW 4 Series, which is expected to get its most powerful, road-going version – the M4 CSL – in May 2022. While the test prototype has revealed plenty of details, a Vietnamese designer that goes by huy.a.tran on Instagram has given us his take on what a BMW M4 CSL should be, and it looks way better than BMW’s own creation.
2022 BMW M850i G1x by G-Power
The BMW M850i delivers a total of 523 horsepower, whereas the BMW M8, a total of 617 horsepower. While the difference in power is not even 100 horsepower, the difference in price between the two models - at least in Europe - is over €40,000.
For those of you who do not want to pay that much money, but still want the M8 power, the German tuner G-Power has the solution.
2022 Manhart MH1 350
2022 BMW M240i By Dähler Competition
The current generation BMW 2 Series doesn’t offer a higher-performance model just yet. The next M2 is currently under some intensive testing, but its official debut is still months away.
Right now the most powerful 2 Series is the 374-horsepower M240i - which, let’s be honest, is not a lot for a sporty coupe. But Dähler Competition has got you covered.
2022 Manhart MHX7 650
The BMW X7 is already about to receive an update and there is still no word on an M version. In fact, everyone already accepted the fact that there won’t be a BMW X7 M - as noted by BMW many times before. For those who want a more powerful BMW X7, Alpina is offering the XB7 - a model that delivers 89 horsepower and 37 pound-feet more than the BMW X7 M50i.
But, now there’s an even more powerful option available at your disposal - the Manhart MHX7 650 package for the X7 M50i, which delivers a total of 650 horsepower!
Drag Race: Watch This 43-HP Vespa Punch Well Above Its Weight Against A 430-HP BMW M3
When it comes to drag racing, cars vs motorcycles is particularly interesting. We always wonder how powerful a car needs to be in order to run with a crouch-rocket, but this time, it’s the other way around. A highly-modified Vespa scooter thinks it has enough horsepower to go up against an almost stock, BMW E92 M3. The BMW outguns the Vespa 10:1, in terms of horsepower, but it also weighs a lot more, which results in some surprisingly close races.
2022 BMW M4 Competition By AC Schnitzer
When BMW launched the new M4 in both, standard and Competition versions, we were impressed. While the huge grille on the face draws polarizing opinions, there’s no split votes when it comes to power. It offers a lot of power for a compact sports coupe.
But, as usual, even for the best cars out there, you can always find more room to improve. AC Schnitzer, for example, is offering a special tuning kit that will not only add more power under the hood, but will also improve the car’s handling and dynamics.
2022 BMW M8 Competition By Wheelsandmore
When it comes to BMW models, the M8 is probably one of the few models that will be okay with absolutely no changes. It looks sporty enough, it is luxurious on the interior, and, in the M8 Competition version, you get more than enough power.
The German tuner ’Wheelsandmore’ seems to have a different opinion, and it developed a very interesting tuning kit for the M8 Competition.
