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.
2022 Alpina B8 - Driven
Alpina might be a longtime collaborator with BMW and has tuned just about anything with a BMW badge that you can think of, but Alpina isn’t your typical tuner. Where some companies will dazzle you with oodles of power and impressive lap times, Alpina sticks to a more traditional – and usable – recipe. Alpina is more known for tweaking BMWs in just the right way, it builds a little on performance, but it also brings mild improvements to the appearance and, more importantly, it makes every single model it works on ride more comfortably than BMW ever could. For a big, bulky model that the BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe, that’s a very big deal, and we’re here to tell you that Alpina did it just right.
A Tuned Toyota GR Supra Attempts To School The BMW M4 Competition In Gappology
Ever since the Toyota GR Supra came out, we have been wondering how it stacks up to some of BMW’s higher echelon of performance cars. To answer the question, Sam CarLegion has arranged for a tuned Toyota GR Supra and a BMW M4 Competition G82 to meet at the drag strip. We know the GR Supra is quite capable and has beaten much more powerful cars on the quarter-mile. Can it win this one?
2022 Manhart MH7 400d
The last two vehicles launched by Manhart were the MHX5 700 and the MH8 800 Limited, which were based on high-end BMW models - the X5 M Competition and the M8 Competition. For the company’s latest project - the MH7 400d - Manhart is turning its attention to the BMW 740d xDrive. Yes, a diesel car!
Smit Oletha Brings Back The Old Z8
If we were to buy an older BMW, most likely the Z8 would be in the top 5 models to choose from. Produced between 2000 to 2003, the Z8 was previewed by the Z07 Concept and was meant to evoke and celebrate the classic 507. It was only offered as a roadster, and, despite rumors, it was never brought back to life after 2003. But now, Smit Vehicle Engineering (SVE), located in California, came up with a modern interpretation of the Z8, and, we have to admit, we like it just as much as the original Z8.
The Bertini GT25 Is An Oddly Successful British-Italian-German Mish-Mash, You Have Never Heard Of
Looking at most kit cars, it’s understandable why most of them are not taken seriously. While the majority of them are a cheap imitation of the real thing, there are some kit cars that deserve a closer look. The Bertini GT25, which not too long ago was featured on the YouTube channel Number 27, is one such car. It’s an Italian name, with British heritage, and a German heart.
2022 Manhart MHX5 700
Manhart is not on its first MHX kit. In fact, just recently it announced the MHX6 700 based on the BMW X6 M Competition. Today it announced the MHX5 700 - yes, as you guessed, it is based on the BMW X5 M Competition. Just like with the X6 M, the X5 M will receive a power boost, but also an updated look to both the exterior and the interior.
Vorsteiner’s Aero Kit Aims To Fix The BMW M3 And M4’s Grille
While the current BMW M3 and M4 are still relatively new cars as they haven’t even reached two years in their life cycle, it seems like these high-performance cars have already existed for way longer due to how much people are still talking about its schnoz. Thankfully, Vorsteiner may have a fix for that.
Zacoe Has MAde the BMW 8 Series and M8 Sportier Than Ever
If there’s one BMW that at least to our eyes is truly beautiful, that would be the 8 Series. Its long, elegant design and classic grand tourer (GT) proportions make it one of the most elegant modern BMWs to date. Yet Zacoe thinks there’s still room for improvement, and so they released a set of body kits for both the 8 Series and the M8 Gran Coupé.
2022 Manhart MH8 800 Limited
German tuner Manhart decided to start 2022 in style and it is offering a very cool upgrade kit for the BMW M8 Competition. It now only adds more than 200 horsepower to the final output, but it also completely transforms the look of the M8! This way, the BMW takes it to an all new level, becoming more powerful, more luxurious and even more exclusive!
2022 G-Power G5M CS Bi-Turbo
The BMW M5 is offered in standard and Competition versions, with the latest one delivering a total of 617 horsepower. However, there was also the M5 CS - which was rolled out in March 2021 - which delivered a total of 627 horsepower and was also 230 pounds lighter than the M5 Competition.
Even if the M5 CS is already out of production, the German tuner G-Power decided to offer current owners the possibility to add a lot more power under the hood.
Did Zacoe Do A Good Job In Improving The BMW M3 And M4’s Looks?
2022 Manhart MHX6 700
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.
