There may not be a greater automotive analogy than a Toyota GR Yaris taking on a BMW M4, and we’re not just talking about the fear factor connected with that Big BMW.
Is a stage one tune worth the money? We’re going to address that question today with a race between two BMW M3s. To begin, we’ll look at the regular BMW M3. It is powered by a 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged straight-six engine that produces 510 horsepower and 650 Nm of torque.
There’s no way around it: the BMW M340i isn’t a true M car, just as the Mercedes-AMG A35 Sedan isn’t a full-fledged AMG. PowerDrift, a YouTube channel, arranged a battle between two German sports sedans from different sectors.
Sam from ‘Sam CarLegion’ brought two fast and strong SUVs to the drag strip to compete. The Audi Q8 was on one corner, and the BMW X5 was on the other. On paper, both SUVs are extremely comparable, making this a highly unpredictable contest. Which do you think will come out on top?
Supercar Blondie, a YouTuber, puts the BMW iX in a whole new light, literally. Blondie the Supercar’s CES experience demonstrates the BMW iX’s color-changing function, which is quite amazing.

BMW M GmbH finished the financial year as the global market leader in the performance and high-performance automobile class for the third time in a row. In fact, the corporation set new sales records in 2021. Last year, a total of 163,542 BMW M vehicles were supplied to customers worldwide, up 13% from 2020.
Last month, a trustworthy BMW insider from the Bimmer Post forums said that a “Very special limited edition M4 will be built for only a few months, commencing November 2022.” He was referring to a performance variant that was distinct from the CSL and included a manual gearbox as well as various enhancements above the M4 Competition.
In 2021, the BMW Group sold 2,521,525 vehicles, setting a new sales record. BMW’s sales director announced at the start of the year that the core brand will be able to sell more than 2.2 million cars in 2021, and we now have the precise amount – 2,213,795 units.
The BMW XM concept debuted late last year as the brand’s first crossover developed purely as an M. However, just because it’ll be a M doesn’t imply it’ll have only one powertrain or version.
