Possibly the BMW i7 M70 is this camouflaged test.
The BMW M7 has never existed. Which, when you think about it, is kind of absurd. Why is there no M7, although BMW produces M SUVs that are as heavy as buildings? No matter what ridiculous excuse executives provide, there is no BMW M7.
Audi E-Tron GT and BMW M240i xDrive engage in an unexpected drag race.
Although both the BMW M240i xDrive and Audi E-Tron GT are all-wheel-drive vehicles from luxury manufacturers, that is about where the similarities between them end. One has an inline-six gasoline engine and is a coupe, while the other is a sedan with two electric motors.
In a drag race, is the BMW M3 Sedan faster than the M3 Touring?
The same 3.0 liter twin-turbo inline-six S58 engine powers both the BMW M3 Sedan and M3 Touring. This engine generates 479 pound-feet (650 Newton-meters) of torque and 503 horsepower (375 kilowatts), which is more than enough power for a spectacular driving experience.
BMW X7 M60i vs Lamborghini Urus
Is the Lamborghini Urus still the best option if you want a large, fast SUV, or would the BMW X7 be a better option? Today, the answer is revealed. For this race, Mat is operating the BMW X7 M60i. A 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 with 530 horsepower and 750 Nm of torque is located under the hood.
BMW M340i In A Drag Race, Takes No Prisoners
The Life Cycle Impulse is featured in a new drag race where the xDrive model is competing against two other performance sedans with six-cylinder engines and two turbochargers. The Genesis G70 3.3T and Cadillac CT5-V both have V6 engines with 3.3-liter and 3.0-liter displacements, in contrast to the M340i’s inline-six engine. All three vehicles have automatic transmissions and are under 4,000 pounds (1,800 kilograms) in weight. The Cadillac has a 10-speed ‘box, while the BMW and Genesis both have an eight-speed one.
How far can the BMW iX drive before its battery runs out?
The BMW iX (WLTP stated 380 miles of range), Mustang Mach-E (372 miles), Tesla Model 3 (389 miles), and Mercedes-EQS are the four vehicles being tested (464 miles). Although longer-range electric vehicles (EVs) exist and include the Lucid Air, they are not sold in the UK. Those are the longest-range EVs available in the UK, according to Watson. Which one turned out to be the greatest, then?
Introducing the ultimate wagon: the BMW M3 Touring
As long as Munich’s sports sedan has been on the road, people have desired a BMW M3 Touring. However, the company has steadfastly refused to construct one, except a concept based on the E46-generation M3, which it kept a secret for almost 10 years.
The 700 HP supercharged V10 in the BMW M5 E60 reaches 211 mph.
The S85 in this super sedan, which Lumma Design modified, is no longer a naturally aspirated V10, unlike the E60, which was the only 5 Series version to include one. Infinitas upgraded the 5.0-liter engine to fit a supercharger, which gave it a significant power boost of 700 horsepower and 680 Nm (500 lb-ft). It has 160 Nm (118 lb-ft) greater torque and roughly 200 horsepower than the base engine.
Review of the 2023 BMW M3 Touring (G81)
Finally, the new BMW M3 Touring. Great M3s and 3 Series Tourings have existed in the past, but until today, the two have never been combined.
BMW i7 Shows Off Impressive 631 km Range
Nyland drove the BMW i7 for a couple of hundred miles on the highway while in Thailand. He didn’t exhaust the battery’s capacity, thus he didn’t actually travel 631 kilometers, but he did average 160 watt-hours per kilometer. As Nyland correctly points out, the BMW i7’s entire battery capacity—101 useable kWh—gives you 631 km when you split it by the 160 wh/km. Does that imply that the BMW i7 can consistently reach that level of range?
Does This S54-Swapped E36 M3 Exist as the Ideal M3?
There are many things to enjoy about the E36 M3, despite how irritating it occasionally may be in terms of reliability. One is how it looks. The dimensions of the E36 M3 Coupe are almost just right, and it has beautifully clean, squared-off corners, a little boxy appearance, and basic lines.
A matte-painted, all-black BMW M3 Touring poses for the camera.
BMW sells the M3 Touring in a variety of vibrant hues, but we would probably be inclined to keep things straightforward and go with black. Given that we’re looking at Individual Frozen Black with a matte finish, this isn’t your typical paint job.
