2022 BMW iX

2022 BMW iX

Previously known as the iNEXT, the iX marks many firsts for the company’s EV future and will debut in the second-half of 2021

BMW revealed an interesting concept called the iNEXT at the 2018 Paris Auto Show. This was the time when the automaker also introduced us to the huge kidney grille. Who knew it would spread like a virus within the portfolio with many of them boasting it on their faces in the years to come?

Anyway, the iNEXT was soon renamed to iX, and BMW said that it will be roughly the size of the X5. But unlike the iX3, which is essentially the electric version of the standard X3, the iX will be much more. For starters, it’s based on a completely new platform that will underpin the future electric models, too.

Now We're Convinced That BMW Needs to Build an M4 Shooting Brake

Now We’re Convinced That BMW Needs to Build an M4 Shooting Brake

We’re also willing to forgive the bucktooth grille if BMW spins off the M4 into a shooting brake

It might sound like we’re pushing our luck here since BMW is already working on a station wagon version for the new M3, but looking at these renders, there’s no denying that the M4 would look rad in shooting brake attire.

2021 BMW M8 Gran Coupe by G-Power

The mighty M8 becomes even mightier

G-Power has unveiled a new tuning program for the BMW M8 Gran Coupe, and it is a doozy. Three different engine upgrades await owners of the mighty M8 Gran Coupe. The most potent upgrade involves significant modifications to the Bimmer’s 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged engine, resulting in an increased output of 808 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque. The German tuner’s new kit also comes with aesthetic and aerodynamic changes, as well as the option for a new set of wheels.

BMW MHX5 by Manhart

BMW MHX5 by Manhart

This Manhart iteration of the BMW X5 M churns out over 800 horses!

The BMW X5 M is quite intimidating when it’s standing peacefully. With those big, burly wheels and tires, and the sharp cuts and creases all around, it has a very strong street presence. When you see it in action, well, that’s a whole different story altogether.

In its top-spec, it comes with a V-8 engine under the hood that can give even some powerful performance sedans a run for their money. But, it seems like this wasn’t enough for Manhart Performance. The German aftermarket company has created its iteration of this beast that comes with carbon fiber elements inside and outside, exhaust system and suspension upgrades, and a power boost that makes the X5 M even scarier in action.

The New Manual M4 Is Heavier, And We Blame That Ungodly Grille

The New Manual M4 Is Heavier, And We Blame That Ungodly Grille

No, actually it’s not the grille, but the trend of bulking up cars from one generation to another

When it’s not concocting videos of synthetically added Lamborghini V-10 sounds to its M2 sports car, BMW is hard at work educating the public on the new M3 and M4 performance brothers.

In a recent video posted by BMW M on YouTube, we get to find out that the current M4 fitted with a manual is heavier than the previous M4 fitted with the dual-clutch transmission.

The BMW Vision iNext Just Became The iX Flagship, And It's Still A Concept

The BMW Vision iNext Just Became The iX Flagship, And It’s Still A Concept

The BMW iX is a near production-ready version of the iNext; debuts in 2021

Remember the Vision iNext concept that BMW unveiled at the 2018 Paris Motor Show? It’s now called the iX, and it’s one step closer to production. Although it’s still a concept vehicle, the iX doesn’t look as futuristic as the iNext, but it previous technology that we will find in BMW production models in the future. Set to go into production in late 2021, the iX will become BMW’s flagship electric vehicle, so it will slot above the X3-based iX3. The big news here is that the iX is built on a new, modular, and scalable platform for electric vehicles.

2022 BMW i4 M

2022 BMW i4 M

The i4 M will be the BMW’s performance division’s first fully electric car

It’s been just about a month since BMW launched the new M3 and the M4. While the bucktooth grille became the talk of the town, there was one other piece of news around that time that didn’t receive as much attention as it should have. BMW Performance Division’s CEO, Markus Flasch, said that M’s first fully electric car will arrive next year and it will be based on the i4. When you have a confirmation from the automaker, it doesn’t take long for the car to be spotted doing test runs, and the same has happened here, too.

New spy shots have appeared that show the i4 M draped in black and white sheets to avoid people from guessing what it is, but hey, who are we kidding here?

Remember When The BMW M5 Stared In the Best Commercial Ever Made?

Remember When The BMW M5 Stared In the Best Commercial Ever Made?

Some say the third-generation BMW M5 is the best ever

It may no longer be true that a TV commercial or, indeed, any sort of ad can actually coax a consumer to at least try if not purchase the product it showcases but, once in a while, there are ads that become instant classics and BMW can pride itself with some of the finest ads amongst all automakers. This classic commercial from the dawn of the 21st century may just be the cream of the crop and that’s in no small part due to its ingenuity, although its star is also important: the E39-generation M5.

BMW Chops Off the 4 Series’ Roof and Makes It the 2021 4 Series Convertible

The front grille remains of the bucktooth variety, though

Whatever trace of summer we have left is beginning to fade away but BMW can’t be bothered. Munich has just introduced the second-generation 4 Series Convertible and before you start looking for an answer to the question ‘why now?’, know that it will only go on sale in March 2021, just in time for a new sunny season.

The U.S. gets four variants at launch: 430i, 430i xDrive, M440i, and M440i xDrive. Scroll down for a better look at the 2021 4 Series Convertible.

The 2021 BMW M3 and M4 Prove That More Power Doesn't Mean More Speed

The 2021 BMW M3 and M4 Prove That More Power Doesn’t Mean More Speed

The new M3 and M4 brothers aren’t too different from their predecessors performance-wise, but will make a difference in other areas

The much-awaited 2021 BMW M3 and 2021 BMW M4 are out of the bag and aimed directly at the Mercedes-AMG C63 sedan and coupe. Affalterbach’s heavy hitters offer ridiculous levels of performance thanks to a beautifully engineered V-8, but the Bavarians look ready to hit back with a souped-up inline-six mill, just like the previous generation, only with more more yet similar performance.

The BMW M3 And M4 Can Finally Be Optioned With AWD

The BMW M3 And M4 Can Finally Be Optioned With AWD

Following the footsteps of the BMW M5, the 2021 M3 and 2021 M4 get a smart all-wheel drive setup for the first time ever

All-wheel drive has come a long way since its inception. In fact, it evolved to such an extent that it has become synonymous with performance, be it delivered by a supercar, sports car, or hypercar. BMW’s own stable is a good place to observe how AWD is trickling down Munich’s performance lineup. After the current M5, the new M3 and M4 also get the M xDrive treatment.

The 2021 BMW M4 Goes AWD, Packs Up to 503 Horsepower And Massive Grille

The 2021 BMW M4 is still available with a manual, but now you can add AWD

The second-generation BMW M4, the coupe version of the M3, just debuted for the 2021 model year. As previewed by spy shots of camouflaged or even camo-free prototypes, the high-performance two-door features a pair of oversized kidney grilles in the front, a significant change compared to the outgoing model.

But the 2021 BMW M4 brings other premiers to the nameplate. It’s the first of its kind to be offered in two power stages, as well as the first M4 available with an optional xDrive all-wheel-drive system. Previously a mid-cycle update, the M4 Competition is now part of the M4 lineup as a range-topping model. Rated at 503 horsepower, it’s the most powerful M4 ever built.

VinFast President: An Old BMW X5 With a GM V-8 That's Built In Vietnam

VinFast President: An Old BMW X5 With a GM V-8 That’s Built In Vietnam

Not only built in Vietnam but in limited numbers, too

VinFast sounds more like an app of sorts that lets you check a car’s service history by introducing its VIN and getting details on when, where, and why it was repaired. However, VinFast is Vietnam’s only domestic car brand, which became independent in 2018, after it bought GM’s remaining operations in Vietnam.

At the helm of the company sits CEO Jim DeLuca, who also happens to be a former General Motors employee, but the owner is Vietnam’s richest man.

Why are we telling you all this? Well, VinFast just introduced its first SUV, a hot-rodded luxo-barge called the President, that’s based on the F15-gen BMW X5.

Hotter BMW M4 spotted on public roads and it could be a new GTS

BMW has yet to introduce the next-generation M4, but it’s already working on a beefed-up version of the upcoming coupe. Our paparazzi just sent us a couple of photos showing a camouflaged BMW M4 that looks notably different than the production model that will debut later this year. Specifically, it features a center-mounted exhaust system and, more importantly, a rear wing. This can only mean one thing: we’re looking at the upcoming BMW M4 GTS.

2021 BMW 545e xDrive PHEV

Here’s a BMW 5 Series that’s both more frugal and more dynamic. What’s not to like?

BMW is dead serious about its electrification ambitions. And to prove the use of electricity isn’t solely justified by a bump in performance - a la Porsche, if you wish - the Bavarians just dropped the 545e xDrive 5 Series, a PHEV version of its core model, one than can run purely on electricity when needed. But, yeah, it will also pull its own weight and more on the Autobahn, so no need to worry about sluggish behavior. Here’s all you need to know.

The 2024 BMW M5 Could Essentially be a Hypercar in a Luxury Car Body

A New Report Says that the Next-Gen BMW M5 Will Offer As Much as 1,000 Horsepower

The current-generation BMW M5 has been on the market since 2017, and the mid-cycle facelift from 2020 guarantees that we will find it in showrooms for another two to three years.

But the German carmaker is already working on the next-generation model, and it seems that it will be more radical than we think. Rumors suggest that the M5 nameplate will include both plug-in hybrid and electric versions, and a new report claims that BMW is also working on an extreme variant with around 1,000 horsepower. Yes, that’s not a typo, the next-generation M5 could be a four-door hypercar.

Cool Car for Sale: 2001 BMW M5 E39 Titanium Silver Metallic

Cool Car for Sale: 2001 BMW M5 E39 Titanium Silver Metallic

It comes with a V-8 engine, manual transmission, and is one of most immaculate classic BMW M5s we’ve seen in a long time

BMW E39 is widely considered as the best BMW 5 Series ever built. The automaker produced it from 1998 to 2003. It isn’t just about the classic looks, but also the fact that it came through in a transition period wherein companies were adopting a lot of tech features. So, this was one of the last BMWs to have the mechanical-feel to it and arguably the best driver’s car that BMW has offered to date.

If you scout the pre-owned market for the E39, you’ll figure out that the model is getting harder to find with every passing year. But, here is one pristine example of 2001 BMW M5 E39 with a modest mileage in the Netherlands. Drool-worthy, isn’t it?

BMW to Take the Tesla Model S Head-On With the 5 Series EV, But Will It Have What It Takes?

The all-electric BMW 5 Series will probably borrow technology from the iX3

BMW recently unveiled the iX3, an all-electric version of the X3 crossover. The iX3 joined the i3 to form the company’s small, two-vehicle EV lineup, but BMW just announced plans to expand more into zero-emission territory. The i4 and the iNext are already underway for 2021, but BMW also plans to roll out electric versions of the 5 Series, 7 Series, and X1. The 5 Series is particularly important here, as it will go against the Tesla Model S.
