Caught testing on public roads with all the camouflage you’d expect from an upcoming BMW product, two prototypes were spotted and one of them even showed parts of its interior.
In this new video from the Nürburgring, we can see the unusual BMW M8 doing some laps and we can hear it as well. Because there don’t seem to be any such badges on the test mule in this video, we don’t think it has hybrid power.
This is a drag race between the new M3 Competition and a heavily tuned Nissan Silvia S15. Even though this version of the Silvia may not be as popular as the S14, it still holds a special place in the heart of many enthusiasts.
How much of a difference is there, between the last generation M3 and the new generation M4? The guys from CarLegion wanted to find out and they got these two cars together to straight up drag race them.
In this new video from EAG, we get to see a very special E34 BMW M5, which proves that the E34 is actually among the best M5s to drive. Back in the early ’90s, BMW developed an E34 BMW M5 20 Jahre edition, which was built to celebrate twenty years of the M Division.
In this new review from Hagerty, we get to see what the manual M3 is like to drive and even what it’s like to drift. The review starts off with Hagerty host Zack Klapman in the passenger seat and Formula DRIFT champion Dai Yoshihara in the driver’s seat.
In the case of Harry Metcalfe, he founded one of the most loved British magazines dedicated to the automotive world and he was reviewing cars back when the BMW Z8 originally came out, at the dawn of the 21st century.
In this new episode, TLBS host Johnny Smith provides a comprehensive look at the BMW iX3, its pros, its cons, and what it’s like to drive. The bones of the BMW iX3 are good, being that it’s based on the standard, and already quite good, BMW X3.
A decade before the BMW 3 Series appeared and redefined what a mid-sized sedan should offer its driver, the German motorcar manufacturer blazed yet another ground-breaking pathway with the 02 series. Offered as a much smaller and cheaper option when compared to other cars of the period, the 02 was so named as it only had 2 doors.
According to Automotive News, that concept should arrive next week, at the IAA which is hosted by Munich this year, instead of Frankfurt.
German tuning arm MANHART is back with its take on the BMW X6 M Competition, dubbed the MHX6 700 WB. Breaking this name down, we find an X6 M Competition that now packs 730 HP and 900 Nm of torque, derived from a tuned version of the 4.4-liter bi-turbo V8 engine.
The current BMW X3 range wrote history for the German car maker. It’s because, with the addition of the iX3 late last year, the BMW X3 can now be had with either an internal combustion engine, an all electric drivetrain or as a plug-in hybrid.
BMW Group Chairman Oliver Zipse gave an interview on the CNBC show “Squawk Box,” telling host Phil LeBeau about plans for the automaker’s Spartanburg, South Carolina facility. There’s a lot more rumor than wisdom surrounding this product.
