Here’s How The Traction Control In the 2021 BMW M3 and M4 Works
From the M Drift Analyzer to the two brake settings and the second M mode further split into Road, Sport, and Track, the new BMW M3 and M4 are brimming with geeky tech meant to boost one thing and one thing only: the driver’s pleasure. At the same time, the traction control system developed by BMW M is a brand new concept that comes to improve on the old one used in the previous M3 and M4.
The GMC Hummer SUV Sacrifices Range And Power for Cargo Room
Almost a year after GMC reincarnated the Hummer moniker in the form of an electric supertruck, the company has now come up with an SUV based on it. Both the products are priced the same except for the top trim, so one would naturally assume them to have identical specs and features.
While the off-road tech and most of the other things are shared, the SUV comes with lower power figures and range. It took people by surprise, but GMC has now clarified that the range and horsepower had to be sacrificed to offer decent cargo room.

An Appreciation To Robert Opron
An automobile is, at its core, a tool. It takes you from A to B, preferably without breaking the bank or your back while doing so. But some cars do more than carrying you around. The likes of Giugiaro, Zagato, Bertone, Ghia, and many more, made sure that cars are also kind to the eye, some, even, gorgeous to look at. Robert Opron also deserves a spot among the greatest car designers of the 20th century as the man behind such iconic cars like the Citroen SM.
This is Probably What the New BMW 8 Series Should Have Looked Like
By this moment in time, we’ve seen the retro-futuristic design in many incarnations. We’ve seen the American trio – Mustang, Camaro, Challenger, the Alpine A110, and now the soon-to-arrive Nissan 400Z. They all harken back to their originals from the 1960s and 1970s. That said, a design from the 1980s is a bit trickier to reinterpret. TheSketchMonkey has decided to take the challenge and gives us his take on what the current BMW 8 Series would look like. His YouTube channel has been around for a while and this is just one of the graphic designer’s many projects.
New STI Performance Parts Make the Subaru BRZ Look Menacing
You are probably aware that Toyota GR 86 and Subaru BRZ were unveiled simultaneously in Japan-spec guise not too long ago. Both sports cars are good for 232 horsepower in Japan and come with a rather toned down design language, yet Subaru is upping the ante with a set of accessories and STI performance parts aimed at those who want a spicier-looking BRZ.

New Rendering Imagines a Modern Mercedes SL McLaren And We Want One
We were blessed with cars since the late 19th century. Up to this point, we’ve had the pleasure of witnessing, touching, and even driving some epic stuff. We’ve also seen many epic comebacks and spiritual successors of legendary cars. With this in mind, the Mercedes SLR McLaren is one of those cars that, we think, deserves a reboot. Apparently, concept artist Georgi Bozhkov thinks the same, as he is introducing us to one of his latest works.
Great Alternatives to the Volkswagen Golf GTI
The Volkswagen Golf GTI is considered the forefather of the hot hatch segment. The first Golf GTI was introduced in June 1976 and has been going strong ever since. Nowadays, the Golf GTI is in its eighth generation and is still one of the best all-around performers in the segment. It’s also sold both in Europe and North America, which is not something that can be said for all the cars on the list. With that being said, the modern hot hatch scene is as dynamic as ever and many new contenders for the best hot hatch title. Here are some of the best alternatives that aim to de-throne the GTI.
The Real Truth Behind The BMW Logo
In March 2020, BMW unveiled its new logo, a flat, minimalistic version of the one it has been using since 1997. While the new design offers a cleaner version that strays away from the old-looking 3D effects and shadows, it is just the latest version of a logo that has been around since 1917 and one that triggered many controversies regarding its origin.
GMC Unveils The 2024 Hummer EV SUV
Almost every new upcoming EV truck has an SUV-twin – Rivian R1T and R1S, Bollinger B1 and B2, and so on. GMC has jumped the wagon, too, and has officially announced an electric SUV based on the Hummer EV. While many features are shared, there are a few differences between the two that deem the SUV to be the inferior one. It boasts of fewer horses in the SUV avatar but there seems to be no price difference in the three standard trims on offer.
