BMW

BMW might be known as a luxury and performance car maker today, but the company got off the ground, quite literally, but producing aircraft engines all the way back in 1916. Over the course of more than 100 years, BMW has survived two world wars and, despite its current position as a global automaker, it even came face-to-face with bankruptcy back in the 1960s when things were so bad that Dr. Hans Feith – the chairman of the company’s Supervisory board – suggested merging with Daimler-Benz. That, however, is a story for another time. Since then, the company turned around and has since introduced its M division back in the late 1970s – the performance arm we’ve all grown to love – and is now focused on delivering SUVs and developing electric and hybrid cars. BMW is doing so well these days that it produced more than 2.5 million vehicles globally in 2018 and has now introduced a new halo model – the all-new 8 Series.

It comes with 730 horsepower and an extreme makeover

We have to admit: the BMW X6 is not one of our favorite cars. But, we have to give credit to the X6 M and the X6 M Competition versions for being very powerful SUVs. In fact, with 617 horsepower under the hood, the Competition version could easily stand in line with SUVs like the Lamborghini Urus.

German-tuner Manhart Performance found a way to further improve the X6 M Competition, and, we have to admit, with the new body kit, we kind of like the new SUV.

This V-8-Swapped BMW 1M Coupe Might Be The Perfect Driver’s Car

Does a V-8 engine swap ruin the BMW 1M Coupe’s driving dynamics or does it enhance them? Mike Fernie from DriveTribe finds out

BMW’s slogan is “Sheer driving pleasure” and in reality, most of what has come from the brand’s M-division has managed to live up to those words. The BMW 1M Coupe, in particular, was praised by many, including Jeremy Clarkson, for being one of the best driver’s cars, ever made. However, someone decided that’s not good enough and tore out the 3.0-liter, turbocharged inline-six for a much bigger V-8. Is this individual insane or is he/she on to something? Mike Fernie from DriveTribe takes it for a spin to find out.

Watch A Porsche Panamera Take On A BMW M5 CS, An AMG E63, And An Audi RS6 In A Drag Race

All the cars are powered by a V-8 engine and make north of 2,500 horses combined!

Mat Watson and his team from ’Carwow’ got four cars to the drag strip for an all-German drag race. The contenders included the Audi RS6, the BMW M5 CS, the Mercedes-AMG E63, and the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid. All the cars feature V-8 engines and two turbochargers.

But, it’s a double-edged sword as the motor and batteries make it the heaviest. Which car do you think will dominate the races?

The BMW XM is a Production-Bound 750-Horsepower Hybrid Beast

As BMW’s second standalone M model, it’s related to the M1 but is wildly different

The BMW M1 was the first standalone M model, and it was produced for just three years – from 1978-1981. It has taken 40 years, but a new standalone M model has finally been revealed, and while it’s not the AMG-fighting sports car we all expected, it certainly harnesses everything that BMW M stands for. This angular, aggressive crossover isn’t an electric car as you might have expected, either. In fact, it is powered by a brutal, hybridized V-8, and even better yet, it’s heading to the production line in 2022.
