The BMW M4 CSL is all set to debut on May 20 at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. As is with any new release, the company tries to hype it as much as possible. BMW did the same by releasing a new video talking about the M4 CSL for over four minutes. But, it’s not just the company hyping the much-anticipated car for you. Our spy photographers are doing the same, and dare I say, they’re doing a pretty good job.

The M4 CSL has been spotted in the past when we saw the camouflaged example’s exterior and a vague shot of the interior. Now, however, the photographers have managed to catch the interior in all its glory, and it reveals a lot of interesting details about the “Coupe Sport Leichtbau”.

2023 BMW X1 M35i

2023 BMW X1 M35i

It will get a more powerful engine and a sportier look, but will it actually replace an M car?

The current generation X1 was launched back in 2015 and there’s no secret that it was never a very successful car. No wonder BMW is preparing big updates for the next model set to arrive in 2022. In a recent press release, the company confirmed that the next X1 will be offered with "both a combustion engine and a fully-electric drivetrain."

The model will also receive the same treatment as the recently launched 1-Series and 2-Series: An X1 M35i version that will pretty much replace the usual M version you get with cars like the X3 and the X4.

Updated 02/28/2022: The upcoming BMW X1 M35i was caught testing once again in cold winter conditions in Northern Sweden. The prototype is still wearing lots of camouflage, so it is still very difficult to see what it will look like, but we all know it will not be an actual M car; so you should only expect a sportier X1.
