BMW is currently on a revamping mission, which should see its entire range of cars being shaken up by all-new generations in just a few years. The move would be fitting in the context of the model’s internal name, which will be G60, but that is also mainly where the somewhat retro look will end, because the 2023 BMW 5 Series has some proportions never-before-seen on a BMW sedan.
The video below shows an i4 M50 at work, BMW’s first ever electric car with the most powerful letter in the world embedded in its name. Whether BMW will pull it off or not remains to be seen, but there isn’t a lot of lean visible in the footage below, with the car pushed to the limit on the Nurburgring.
Speaking of competition, the 911’s rival for the day is the sublime BMW M5 CS. The Bavarian sedan is quite possibly the best M car you can buy right now if what you’re after is performance.
X3 M with S58 engine good for 503 horsepower and 443 lb-ft Nm of torque. All of that is sent to the four wheels of the car via an eight-speed automatic gearbox. The other three cars in this race are pretty close in terms of performance and specs. The Mercedes-AMG GLC63 S comes with a 4.0-liter V8 but the same amount of horsepower, the Alfa-Romeo Stelvio QV has the exact same amount of power too but from a 2.9-liter V6 while the Jaguar F-Pace SVR has the biggest engine here, a 5.0-liter supercharged monster good for the most power, 550 horses in total. Who win?
A new video from the Track Day YouTube has a pair of 2018 models visiting an airstrip, which means we have a series of drag races between the two to watch to determine which is the superior performance sedan.
The BMW E30 3 Series has a special place in the hearts of many enthusiasts, not necessarily only BMW fanboys. There is one limited-edition model out there that might be even more desirable. It was the end result of the collective efforts of BMW South Africa, ALPINA and BMW Motorsport.
When talking about 173,000 miles you’re probably looking at some serious wear and tear. According to the owner, his particular M3 got a tune a while back which is supposed to raise the power up by 20-30 HP. Since the E46 M3 is claimed to come with some 333 HP, the car should be making in excess of 350 now, right?
Celebrating the kick-off of the 2021 IAA, BMW has decided to bring a series of new models to the iconic BMW Welt building. Of course, the new gran coupe retains the 4 Series grille, which may be the most polarizing design cue of any BMW in history.
A new BMW M4 Competition has been wrecked after crashing in Europe. The clip shared to Reddit then cuts and the next time we see the BMW, it is facing on the wrong side of the road after what appears to have been quite a significant impact.
The car is for sale and on display at the Celebrity Cars Las Vegas showroom – not too far from where the fatal shooting went down. This 1996 BMW 750IL is the same one Pac was riding in, while Suge Knight drove, 25 years ago today in Las Vegas.
BMW is launching a new line of M Performance Parts for the all-new 2 Series Coupe and the 2 Series Gran Coupe. This marks the first time we’re seeing such parts on the new 2er Coupe.
BMW AG has boosted orders for battery cells to keep pace with accelerating demand for electric cars that made up more than 11% of deliveries during the half of the year. The German carmaker now has contracts for more than 20 billion euros of batteries, up from 12 billion euros previously, Chief Executive Officer Oliver Zipse said in an interview.
