We haven’t seen a camouflaged BMW 8 Series walking around in public in a while. That isn’t to say BMW isn’t working on modernizing that are 8 Series lineup. The revised 8 will have a grille that is virtually the same size and shape as the present model, with slimmer headlamps on either side.
BMW’s next-generation 5-Series prototype has been sighted once more. The proportions are similar to the beloved E39 generation, and the headlights appear to be thinner than the current version. When it comes to the engine, BMW wants to give customers a choice of powertrains, at least until the company transitions to a fully electric portfolio.
Modern BMW M xDrive cars are so powerful on the track that they are frequently compared to full-fledged sports cars. This time, a boosted M8 Gran Coupe takes on an Audi R8 with a comparable tune. Which do you think will be victorious?
The BMW X5 xDrive45e is, without a doubt, the best vehicle in its class. This is the SUV for individuals who desire a little luxury but aren’t quite ready to make the switch to electric. It’s comfy, handles well, and has plenty of options for those who want a little more.
The new BMW M3 and M4 are good examples of this, as the manual gearbox versions of both cars are average in execution, but some aficionados would prefer them over the more coherent Competition editions. Joe Achilles shows us the BMW M4 manual and discusses if he’d prefer it to his M3 Competition spec.
Based on the numbers alone, the Audi RS4 has less power and more weight than the BMW M3 Competition, implying that the brazen Bavarian already has the win. The BMW M3 and Audi RS4 have been touted as daily supercars that can accommodate the entire family while also going like the clappers since their beginnings.
The video begins with a beach drag race, with the presenters claiming that both of these cars are capable of off-roading. The truth is that only the Range Rover does, which is evident in the ‘race’ because it’s the only vehicle with a low-ratio gearbox.
CarWow decided to conduct one of its standard extreme range tests, driving a variety of electric vehicles, including a BMW iX3, until the battery was entirely depleted. Some important competitors were included in the test, as well as some other options from various areas.
BMW aims to add up to 6,000 new jobs next year to meet rising demand for its electric vehicles, according to a report published in the Muenchner Merkur newspaper.
A stainless steel exhaust system with valve control and four 100 mm tailpipes in carbon fiber or ceramic coating have been installed on the SUV. Manhart claims it can outfit the SUV with an enhanced brake system to suit the increased horsepower and torque, though no details have been revealed.
G-Power converted a BMW M5 CS to produce a whopping 900 horsepower. In stock form, the 4.4-liter produces a whopping 627 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque, but it wasn’t enough to fulfill G-insatiable Power’s thirst for power.
BMW limited editions are hit-or-miss. Older models like the E46 M3 CSL and the more contemporary M2 CS are among our favorite BMW M cars, but special editions like the E36 M3 Lightweight (which lacked air conditioning and a radio) and the M4 GTS are also worth checking out (which requires a water refill with each tank of gas). We approached the 2022 BMW M5 CS with some skepticism, given the checkered history of specialty M cars.
