BMW M3 Competition And Alfa Romeo Giulia GTAm Driven Back To Back
Carwow has been synonymous with staging some of the most exciting drag races, more often than not, between stock, production cars. However, the same YouTube channel, occasionally gives us a proper comparison between two high-performance vehicles – in this case, the new BMW M3 Competition and Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio GTAm.
2022 BMW ALPINA B4 Gran Coupe Prototype Reveals New Details
If you follow everything revolving around BMW’s cars, you know that every time the Bavarian carmaker brings out a new model, it’s only a matter of time before Alpina makes its own version of it. The Bavarian-based tuning company is operating independently, since 1983 and now, it’s cooking up its own version of BMW’s 4-Series Gran Coupe in the form of the Alpina B4 Gran Coupe, which was recently spied testing.
BMW Is Playing With Our Feelings By Equipping A Quad-Exhaust Setup On A Non-M X1
A BMW X1 prototype with a quad-exhaust setup was recently spied and it made us wonder if it is the SUV’s standalone M model. But, the company has stated in the past that there will never be a pure M model based on the front-wheel-drive platform. So, this means that the prototype that was spotted was an X1 M35i and not a full-blown M model. Well, not sure if we’re happy or sad seeing this camouflaged prototype.
This 1974 BMW 3.0 CS May Be Your Last Chance At An Attainable Bavarian Classic
BMW has built many epic performance cars throughout its existence. However, one model that stands out, in particular, is the 1968 to 1975 BMW 3.0 CS E9. The elegant GT coupe is A basis for one of the most successful competition cars BMW has ever made – "the Batmobile" – and in road-going form, it’s one of the most beloved GT cars ever made. What’s even better is that an exceptionally preserved 1974 BMW 3.0 CS is currently listed at classiccars.com for the relatively attainable $44,500, and here’s why you should consider it.
Watch The BMW X3 M, The Jaguar F-Pace, And The Alfa Romeo Stelvio Get Railroaded By The Mercedes-AMG GLC 63!
The ‘Carwow’ team brought four performance SUVs to the drag strip for a series of straight-line races. The contenders include a Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S, a BMW X3 M Competition, an Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio, and a Jaguar F-Pace SVR. Three of the four SUVs make identical 510 horses, whereas the Jaguar trumps them all with 40 extra ponies. But, it is also the heaviest. Does it nullify Jaguar’s advantage?
BMW G80 M3 Competition Puts Down A Sub-Three-Second 0 to 60 MPH Time
The BMW M3 does not need an introduction. It has been setting the benchmark for performance cars since 1986, and although the newer models are a far cry from the lightweight homologation model that was the E30 M3, they are still some of the most praised driver’s cars. With the G80 now being the quickest-accelerating M3, you have to ask yourself, can a stock BMW M3 get any quicker? The answer is given by YouTube channel Drag Times, which managed to get its hands on a BMW M3 Competition xDrive.
Can the Honda Accord Sport 2.0t Take On The BMW 330iX In a Drag Race?
When it comes to drag-racing new vehicles, the YouTube channel Sam CarLegion does a very thorough job. Two or more cars are pitted against each other multiple times, in different drive modes. This time, it’s two of the most popular sporty sedans currently on the market – the Honda Accord Sport 2.0t and the BMW 330iX, and the result might surprise you.
Doug DeMuro’s Review of this E34 BMW M5 Will Hit You With Some 90s Nostalgia
With single-turbo or twin-turbo engines so popular today in BMW’s stable, it’s easy to overlook the fact that back in the late 1980s-early 1990s, the Bavarians built a performance sedan that had some BMW M1 DNA baked in under the hood. That performance sedan was the E34 M5, which happens to get the DeMuro treatment - and a Doug score, of course.
2021 BMW 545e xDrive PHEV
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.
Everything You Need to Know About The Facelifted 2021 BMW 5 Series
Are These Leaked Images of the 2021 BMW 5 Series Legitimate?
We’re back with another BMW-related leak. This time, the revised G30 BMW 5 Series has surfaced online in a set of pictures that look like the real deal.
Unlike the next-gen BMW 2 Series Coupé, the arrival of a facelifted 5 Series was previously documented by various spyshots, so it was only a matter of time before it broke cover, one way or the other.
2022 BMW i4
BMW’s transition to electricity is already in motion and after the BMW i3, which is now fully electric, the brand will introduce another EV model – the i4. We already know that the four-door EV will be offered in two versions - a base one with a single electric motor and a more powerful, twin-motor version. The BMW i4 will debut in November, this year and will compete with the likes of Tesla Model 3 and Audi E-Tron GT.
2021 BMW M5
The BMW 5 Series is in line for a mid-cycle refresh and it won’t be long before it comes to full effect. What’s more, the revamp will also affect the M5 performance sedan, as our spy photographers have spotted a heavy-camo’ed facelifted BMW M5 mule out on the open road.
BMW is tight-lipped about the revised M5 (as it is about the 5 Series as a whole) but the test prototype displays a couple of interesting changes that touch on the front and rear light clusters and bumpers. There’s no word on power upgrades yet, but let’s take a better look at what the revamped M5 might have in store for us.
Update 2/21/20200: The 2021 BMW M5 was just spotted doing some cold-weather testing and it’s starting to come together nicely. Check out the new spy shots and what we’ve learned in our “Spy Shots” section below!
2020 BMW X5 M
The 2020 BMW X5 M is the range-topping version of the fourth-generation X5 SUV. Unveiled in 2019, it’s the most powerful and advanced version of the midsize hauler. Sportier than ever design-wise and fitted with BMW latest tech, including semi-autonomous drive, the 2020 X5 M hides a twin-turbo, 4.4-liter V-8 under the hood. Rated at 600 horsepower, it’s a bit more potent than the old engine. But BMW also offers a 617-horsepower model under the Competition badge. The two-model strategy enables the 2020 X5 M to better compete with the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63. Find out more about the high-performance SUV in the review below.
BMW Tried To Cast Shade on the Ford Mustang Mach-E By Unveiling Information About the 2021 BMW i4
BMW is set on keeping up with the electric car wave that is currently flooding the car industry and now that it has tested the waters with the i3, Munich will unleash its meat-and-potatoes electric car under the i4 nameplate sometime next year, probably at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show.
The i4 will take the shape of a sedan and will look a lot like the current BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe. In our book, the 4er GC is one of the sleekest cars in Munich’s present lineup, by the way. Looks aside, two questions arise: will the i4 pack the desired amount of power and long-range capabilities sought after by today’s clientele? Furthermore, how will it fare against some of its potential competition out there?
2020 Alpina B3 Saloon
Where do you go when you want a car that looks like a BMW and still is a BMW deep inside, but sports subtle design tweaks, boosted powerplants, and new badges without looking over the top and rather elegant instead? Well, if you’re thinking Alpina, then you’re absolutely right. The firm calls itself a manufacturer because it does not offer aftermarket kits, tuning chips, of mods, but instead, it delivers BMW-based models that have been tweaked from the ground up. Alpina’s latest product, the B3 saloon, just took the stage in Tokyo, so why don’t we get to learn what’s it all about?
The new BMW X6 features a new, huge grille, remains the uglier brother of the X5
The coupe SUV niche will welcome in a matter of hours a new iteration of the model that, arguably, made the niche a thing: BMW’s X6. The third-generation of the supposedly sleeker sibling of the X5 will sit on the same CLAR platform, will be built at BMW’s Spartanburg, South Carolina, plant, and will again be offered with the M treatment. As was the case with the G05-generation X5, we get to share what seems like official press images with you all before the unwrapped X6 is supposed to the light of day.
Are you tired of SUVs with sloping rooflines that try to fool you into thinking they are actually gracious? Did you mumble unholy words upon seeing the Cayenne Coupe? Then, the new X6 may not be the SUV for you and we get you but be sure BMW will sell tons of these so it’s worth sparing a second look.
BMW Wants You Yo “Make Every Day Legendary” in 2020 BMW X7 SUV
BMW has very recently launched its first ever X7 SUV, a seven-seater that occupies the top position in the manufacturer’s high rider lineup. With a starting price in the U.S. of $73,900, it is $13,200 more expensive than the smaller X5, so it needs a good story to help get sales moving. In this case, it needs one that turns everyday obstacles and situations into fantastically exaggerated mythical encounters.
Believe It or Not, the 2019 BMW 3 Series is Bigger than an E39 5 Series
Last week, BMW removed the silk covers from the all-new BMW 3 Series G20. It is possibly the most important car revealed at the Paris Motor Show and definitely the most important car BMW revealed in the last three or so years. Yet, even on the photographs, one could definitely see that the 3 Series grew quite a bit. BMW reported a 2.9 inches increase in length. When I was working on that BMW 3 Series piece I was wondering just how big the new 3 Series really is.
The answer surprised me. The new BMW 3 Series G20 is bigger than the BMW 5 Series E39. Ok, not exactly longer, but I’ll get to that in a jiffy. Considering the E39 is basically my favorite car, I was almost annoyed, but then reason took over. I asked myself, how did we become so strangely obsessed with size and getting things bigger?
Xtomi Renders the 8 Series as a Cabrio, Pickup, Shooting Brake, and NFS Most Wanted Street Racer
The arrival — or is it return? — of the BMW 8 Series has done a lot of things in the industry, including giving designers an opportunity to render the German automaker’s new flagship model sporting different body types. It’s no surprise that as soon as the 8 Series was unveiled, noted artist and rendering maestro X-Tomi has come out with different “versions” of the 8er, some of which are more audacious than others.
Does the 8 Series work as a shooting brake? How about a convertible version? Maybe even as a pickup? X-Tomi covered all these bases with his renders for the 8 Series, and almost all of them are awesome.
Love It or Leave It - The 2019 BMW X5
In production since 2013, the third-generation BMW X5 entered its final year on the market in 2018. With production scheduled to end this year, the Germans launched the fourth-generation SUV. Redesigned on the group’s new CLAR platform, the G05 model boasts a new but familiar exterior and a more modern interior. As it is the case with redesigns, the X5 also gained a revised engine lineup and a wide array of new gear, including driver aids, a new suspension setup, and an off-road package.
Unfortunately, the new SUV also comes with a few downsides. We’ve already discussed the good and the bad at the office, and you can read our opinions below. Don’t forget to tell us what you think about the new X5 in the comments section.
