A Bold Design Could Foreshadow The Next BMW M4 GTR

A Bold Design Could Foreshadow The Next BMW M4 GTR

An independent Vietnamese designer has done a better job on the BMW M4 than the entire BMW design team

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.

Lucid Air And Tesla Model S Plaid Redefine Speed By Racing Against Gravity And A BMW E39 M5

The Tesla Model S Plaid and Lucid Air prove high-performance EVs are faster than gravity

High-performance EVs are here and they are very fast. The Tesla Model S Plaid and, now, the Lucid Air are both capable of 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) in the two-second range, and both pack over 1,000 horsepower. To get an idea of just how fast cars have become, both EVs will square off against the fastest sedan from 20 years go – the BMW M5 E39 – in a quarter-mile drag race with a twist, after which both EVs will race against…a person falling from an airplane.

BMW Says Goodbye To V-12 Engines With Special Edition M760i xDrive

It is time to head to an electrified era

We knew for quite some time now that BMW’s V-8 and V-12 engines are living on borrowed time. In fact, when the new generation 7 Series will arrive at the end of 2022, none of these engines will be offered. Instead customers will have to choose between straight-six, hybrid or all-electric versions.

Now, BMW confirmed that the last V-12 will be produced in June 2022 and, to mark the event, it will launch a total of 12 M760i Final V12 Edition units. Each will carry a price tag of $200,000, plus destination fees and will be distinguished by unique badging, wheels, and a vast collection of exterior colors and upholstery.

Fancy a classic BMW M6? This one can be yours for a a very reasonable price

We love scouting attainable classic cars and this one is the latest to grab our attention – a 1988 BMW M635CSi, which in North America is simply known as the M6. The E24 generation, often called “the shark nose” can easily be considered one of the most iconic BMW models ever made. It also shared an engine (sort of) with the mid-engine BMW M1 (E26). With this in mind, the website colelctingcars.com has a very interesting listing of a 1988 BMW M6, which we think is worth the look.

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.

Called BX7, the SUV is already preparing for a first refresh, and our spy photographers have already caught it out in the wild.
