BMW M's First Electric Car Is Definitely Coming and Will Be Faster Than the M4 CSL

BMW M’s First Electric Car Is Definitely Coming and Will Be Faster Than the M4 CSL

The M CEO predicts an improved electrified M car above previous iterations fueled by ICEs

By 2030, BMW will go full electric, as many of its competitors will. But, unlike the non-performance-oriented lineup, the M division finds it challenging to make battery-operated full-fat M cars, as the weight factor will snatch away the joy of driving them around racetracks. Of course, enthusiasts like you and me love the M3 and M5->art188713] because of the true character they hold. But let’s face it- electrification is the way to look forward, and CEO Frank Van Meel has confirmed it.

Legendary Drummer Mikkey Dee Puts The Pedal To The Metal In The Volvo FH Electric

Legendary Drummer Mikkey Dee Puts The Pedal To The Metal In The Volvo FH Electric

Volvo Trucks beats the competition to all-electric trucking with the Volvo FH Electric and drummer Mikey Dee takes it for a wild drive

Even today, when technology is easily copied, Volvo is still considered to be at the forefront of safety. The Swedish manufacturer is also one of the first brands to adopt electrification, and this now extends to their truck models. With that said, Volvo Trucks proudly introduces the FH Electric. Given the focus on electrification, this is the natural progression of the Volvo FH, which in 2014, was the first truck to receive Volvo’s I-Shift, dual-clutch automatic (with optional crawler gears from 2016). Now, this electric version is ready to rock and roll in silence (not literally roll) and legendary drummer, Mikkey Dee gets behind the wheel to share his impressions.

Jaguar is Bringing Back the C-Type, and the First One Has Already Been Built

Jaguar is Bringing Back the C-Type, and the First One Has Already Been Built

Seven more units will follow

Jaguar unveiled the C-Type in 1951 and production ended in 1953. But, despite the two years production run only 53 C-Type units were built, 43 of which arrived at private owners, mostly in the U.S. As you can imagine, finding one is very difficult, and when you do it gets very expensive. Usually, the C-Type is being sold at auction for more than $5 million. But now Jaguar has a solution: as part of the C-Type 70th anniversary, the company decided to build the C-Type Continuation - a model built to the original specs using data from the brand’s archive and by scanning an original model. Only eight will be built, and after more than a year of development, the first unit is finally ready to hit the road - just in time to celebrate 70 years since the C-Type won the Reims Grand Prix Meeting on 29 June 1952.

This Shelby Cobra Replica Is So Good, You Can't Tell It Apart from the Original

This Shelby Cobra Replica Is So Good, You Can’t Tell It Apart from the Original

Can a well-executed replica really be a worthy substitute to the million-dollar Shelby Cobra?

The Shelby Cobra is one of the most iconic and sought-after American muscle cars. Despite it being based on the British AC Ace, the Cobra became its own thing thanks to American racing driver and car builder, Carroll Shelby. While every car enthusiast wants a piece of this American automotive history, not everyone can afford the seven-figure price of an original Cobra. Because of this, the Cobra is the most replicated car in the world. But just how close can a replica get to the original? Hagerty gives the answer in an episode of the Appraiserwhere a top-of-the-line continuation car is being featured, in order to determine its market value.

Ferrari Is Still Unsure of How to Transition into an EV Company

Ferrari Is Still Unsure of How to Transition into an EV Company

Ferrari’s traditional approach to building cars keeps enthusiasts happy, but also postpones the brand’s transition towards making high-performance EV models

Ferrari is, probably, the automotive brand that most begrudgingly made the transition to electrification and SUVs. The Italian sports car manufacturer is still behind on the electrification front compared to most other manufacturers and is yet to announce definite plans for a fully-electric model. Ferrari’s first step towards electrification began with the 2013 LaFerrari, which featured a hybrid powertrain revolving around a V-12, but there are a few reasons why the Maranello-based carmaker is yet to make a transition.

This Modified Tesla Model S Plaid Just Hit 216 MPH

This Modified Tesla Model S Plaid Just Hit 216 MPH

It’s not stock, but it’s still a Model S that can do more than 200 mph!

When Tesla unveiled the Model S Plaid in 2021 it promised it will go from 0 to 60 mph in under 2 seconds and will hit a top speed of over 200 mph. But many tests have revealed that the Model S Plaid can only hit 269 km/h (167.14 mph). Then, in early 2022, Tesla announced the Track Mode for the Model S Plaid that pushed the top speed to 175 mph. Which again is not 200 mph. We are not sure what exactly is preventing Tesla from actually offering this kind of performance figure, but the fact is that it doesn’t. However, it seems that the trick to go over 200 mph is to remove software limitations.

2023 Mercedes-AMG SL - Performance, Price and Photos

The folks from Afalterbach have revitalized the SL-Class with new powertrains, cutting-edge tech and for the very first time, All-Wheel-Drive

The Mercedes SL (Sport Licht), which translates to Sport Light in German, is a car that set the benchmark for sport and luxury for nearly seven decades. The 300 SL name has its weight in gold and the latest Mercedes SL (the first one in nearly a decade) is the direct descendent of the SL Roadster from the early 1950s.

The 2023 Mercedes SL Roadster is a new car from the ground up and it essentially replaces the S-Class Cabriolet and the AMG GT Roadster. The folks from Affalterbach have worked extensively on the SL to transform it from a boulevard cruiser to a genuine open-top sports car, reminiscent of the original. Gone is the foldable hardtop roof and in comes a canvas soft top. Also, AMG is calling the SL Roadster a 2+2 and for the first time in the model’s history, 4-Matic All-Wheel-Drive now comes as standard.

And so will Gordon Murray - the maker famous for its V-12-powered T.33. The company announced it has two new electric SUVs in development, but that doesn’t mean it’s straying too far from its roots.

This 43-year-old Ferrari could be worth a Toyota bZ4X

Ferrari introduced the 308 GTB at the 1975 Paris Motor Show alongside the 308 GTS convertible. These mid-engined coupes were manufactured between 1975-1985 and were designed by Leonardo Fioravanti at Pininfarina. The 308 GTB, which served as the Ferrari Dino 246’s spiritual successor, was greatly influenced by the Dino 308 GT4. It represents the classic mid-engined Italian supercars from the 70s.

Alpina Opens Up About Being Acquired by BMW

Nevertheless, it was a bold move for Alpina to survive the EV era

Alpina has been a niche tuning firm that concentrates on BMW models, much like RUF does for Porsche. Alpina has been a separate entity for more than 50 years, developing high-performance BMW cars, but in March 2022, news of BMW’s acquisition of the luxury brand was more of a surprise. However, the switch of ownership will not come into effect until 2026. But the million-dollar question remains- why did Alpina agree to the acquisition? Can you blame the pressure of electrification and stricter emission norms?
