BMW Is Outgunning Mercedes and Audi With the new BMW M3 and M4
BMW has finally confirmed that, as expected, the upcoming 2021 BMW M3 and M4 will be offered in standard M trim and Competition trim. What’s more important, however, is the impressive improvement that comes with the new generation, including an output increase of 66 horsepower over the current M3 and M4 Competition. With the 2021 M3 and M4 Competition pumping out 510 horsepower, can they hold their own against the Mercedes-AMG C63 S and the Audi RS5? You bet your ass they can.

Anyway, details remain scarce for the time being, however, a recent report by BMW Blog reveals some interesting traits of the incoming M5 CS.
2020 BMW 8 Series Golden Thunder Edition
BMW is back at its special edition game with a new attire for the 8 Series. While the package looks alright and will at least prevent owners from painting their 8er’s rims gold, we cannot not wonder just how helpful will the Golden Thunder Edition prove to be for the 8 Series’ sales cause.
BMW’s Big, Controversial Grille Will End Up Being a 4 Series Exclusive
The latest BMW 4 Series was unveiled earlier in June 2020, and the only thing everyone is still talking about is the coupe’s front grille. Unlike other modern BMW’s, the 4 Series sports a taller kidney grille that extends into the bumper. This feature is taken from the BMW Concept 4, and it’s a highly controversial element. While many BMW enthusiasts hate it to death, others think that it’s a cool design feature that helps the 4 Series stand out. BMW is aware of that and finally decided to answer the big question: will this grille make it on other models? In short, it won’t!
The Rendering of the BMW M440i Most Wanted Has Need For Speed Written All Over It
Still not a fan of the latest 4 Series? Is that big kidney grille annoying? Well, maybe this rendering from X-Tomi Design will change your mind. Although it retains the 4 Series’ main features, including the controversial grille, it adds a new spin with add-ons and a livery inspired by the already legendary Need for Speed: Most Wanted video game.
The Modern BMW 6 Series Rendering Shows Us What the BMW 8 Series Should Have Been
BMW revived the 8 Series nameplate in 2018 as a flagship two-door model. At the same time, the German firm discontinued the 6 Series after 15 years of continuous production. The 8 Series was well-received overall, but some BMW fans weren’t quite happy with the exterior design, considered rather dull for a flagship coupe. If you’re among those unhappy with the 8 Series, you should check out the modern 6 Series design by Grigory Butin.
This Is, Without a Doubt, The Most Amazing BMW Collection You’ll Ever See
BMW has become one of the most iconic car brands in the world, starting with the 1960s, and many of the company’s cars are now sought-after collectibles, with some worth in excess of $1 million. But while some have a passion for a certain nameplate, some collectors adore BMW’s history as a whole. Peter Gleeson is one of those guys, and he owns an impressive collection of Bimmers. The Peterson Automotive Museum paid him a visit, and he showcases some of his favorite possessions.
A New Leaked Image Reveals That The 2021 BMW M4 Will Somehow Be Uglier Than the Base Model
Outside of the various spy shots of the BMW M4 (they were confirmed to be legitimate by BMW, by the way) the 2021 BMW M4 has been a well-kept secret. We knew it would have the big grille, especially after the 4 Series made its debut earlier this week, but we were expecting the M4 to be a little more aggressive than the M440i. Sadly, that’s not the case and, to be honest, the M4 is apparently aiming to show that BMW’s new look can get even uglier. These really are interesting times that we’re living in.
The 2021 BMW 4 Series Coupe Is Here And BMW Still Fails To Justify Its Ugly Face
Ever since the 2019 4 Series Concept made its debut, BMW’s new design language – namely the massive, vertically oriented kidney grilles – has been a frequent topic of conversation. Now, the 2021 BMW 4 Series Coupe with that very same grille design and, while the design does seem to fit decently with the overall design of the M440i, it looks a little out of place on the lesser models. Outside of BMW essentially saying it doesn’t care what anyone thinks about the new design – it’s here to stay – the company is still trying to justify the design. The latest reasoning behind that grille almost holds water until you look a little closer.
2021 BMW 4 Series Coupé - Everything You Need to Know
This is it, ladies and gentlemen: the new 2021 BMW 4 Series Coupé, scheduled to make its market debut in October 2020. And here’s all the essential info about it because, let’s face it, there’s more to it than that gaping front grille we’ve seen in so many leaks prior to this official unveil.
This E85 BMW Z4 With a V-10 Is Clearly From a Different Dimension or Alternate Reality
What to do when you’ve got a 600 horsepower BMW Z4 that loves to smoke its back tires on your hands? The only logical answer is to take it to Germany’s limitless Autobahn network and allow it to run free. That’s exactly what the AutoTopNL did and, boy, is it a joy to watch. Just to refresh your memory before we delve deeper into this crazy build: never did the E85-generation Z4 come with anything bigger than the 3.2-liter S54 inline-six from the factory. Yep, we don’t quite know how the E60/E63-era V-10 fit in there either but here it goes.
2020 BMW M8 Competition MH8 800 by Manhart - The Fastest 8 Series In the World
Manhart has a new toy for big boys and it’s based on the smoking-hot BMW M8 Competition, a car that’s already brimming with performance. Yet Manhart didn’t settle for the stock grunt because, honestly, that’s not what tuners do. So what you’re seeing here is the MH8 800, the fastest BMW M8 Competition... in the world.
Thanks to Hybridization, There Is No Ceiling for the BMW M Brand
Harnessing electricity - fully or partially - in a vehicle has opened a whole lot of avenues for car brands to explore in their quest to offer more power than the rival next door.
One such nameplate is BMW’s M division, which doesn’t have the slightest intention to limit the level of grunt offered by its future models. On the contrary: it plans to boost those figures.
BMW M Next Hypercar - AKA the i8 M - Is Reportedly Cancelled
Mere days after we saw a prototype version of the all-new BMW M4 prancing around in test mule form comes its hardtop sibling, which, not surprisingly, is also decked in full camo regalia. To be fair, this isn’t the first time that the BMW M4 Coupe was spotted in the wild.
Back in December, we caught a glimpse of the sports coupé being unloaded from a car transporter. That sighting didn’t amount to much, but this fresh batch of spy photos shows the M4 Coupe — still wrapped in heavy camouflage — in its more natural state, engaged in test runs in and around the streets of Germany.
Just like its roofless sibling, the all-new BMW M4 Coupe is set to debut sometime this summer ahead of its market launch at the end of the year. But before any of that happens, BMW will continue doing test runs of the M4, hopefully with fewer camo wraps in the succeeding sessions.
Update 4/28/2020: The BMW M4 Coupe was spied testing once again, and this time we’ve gotten a look at the interior. Check it out in our special Spy Shots section below!
BMW’s Long-Awaited Supercar Will Probably be the i8 M
Six years old as of 2020, the BMW i8 is a bit long in the tooth. As a result, BMW decided to end production of the hybrid sports car. The bad news is that the Germans have yet to announce a successor, but a recent report claims that BMW is actually working on a follow-up. And it seems that its spiritual success will be notably more powerful.
2021 BMW 4 Series Coupé
Remember the excessively polarizing BMW Concept 4 shown at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show? Well, some of its distinctive styling cues are bound to be trickled down to the upcoming BMW 4 Series Coupé and we’ve already seen pics that suggest the oversized kidney grille is one such element.
Although we’ll have to wait a while to see the new 4 Series take a bow, our spy photographers caught a heavily camouflaged test mule and managed to sneak inside for a couple of interior shots. Read all about it and more in the in-depth review below.
Update 4/28/2020: The BMW 4 Series Coupe was spotted testing the the wild once again, this time with much less camo and padding. Check it out in all its glory in the Spy Shots section below!
