BMW Vision M NEXT

BMW Vision M NEXT

BMW is teasing the future of sports cars with a pewter and orange coupe with butterfly (aka billionaire) doors. The carbon fiber-bodied 2-seater packs a 600hp hybrid drivetrain and can hit 60 mph in less than 3.0s. Its minimal interior has a razor sharp focus on the driver designed to reduce distractions.

3MTD: 2019 BMW M5 Competition

We’ve teamed up with the folks at Rides & Drives to bring car lovers a fresh new series. Each 3-Minute Test Drive packs in driving footage, feature highlights, and overall impressions, providing a quick overview of what each car has to offer. First up, the 617hp V8 monster BMW M5 Competition.

2020 BMW M8

2020 BMW M8

The most potent of BMW’s 8-series looks fantastic in either coupe or convertible form, and Competition models that rev higher and get M Sport exhaust. The M8 gets a 600 hp twin-turbo V8, while the M8 Competition bumps that to 617 hp for a 0-to-60 time of just 3.0 seconds, and a 189 mph top speed.

Our BMW Palm Springs Experience

Our BMW Palm Springs Experience

We recently joined our friends from MenWhoBlog at the BMW Performance Center at California’s The Thermal Club. We were treated to an amazing day of fun, learning, and hot laps on the track, along with an opportunity to enjoy the wonderful sights, accomodations, food, and libations of Greater Palm Springs.

Best of BMW Test Fest 2019

Best of BMW Test Fest 2019

BMW decided to make it a little easier to for us test its many vehicles by creating the BMW Test Fest, a day-long event at the BMW Performance Center in Thermal, California. With over 80 cars from BMW, Rolls-Royce, and MINI, here’s a taste of what we experienced.

The Youngtimer Collection

The Youngtimer Collection

In April 2019, RM Sotheby’s is going to hold auctions that draw from a private collection of “youngtimers” – ’80s and ’90s cars from BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and more. Chris Harris was lucky enough to take a tour of the impressive and extensive collection.

That’ll Buff Out

That’ll Buff Out

Auto body mechanic Arthur Tussik shows how – with the proper skills, time, tools, and parts – a totaled car can be made to look just like new. Here, he takes a horribly smashed up BMW 7 series, and brings it back to life. We can’t speak to its structural integrity, but it looks good.

2019 BMW 8-Series Convertible

2019 BMW 8-Series Convertible

The new BMW 8-series drops its top with its M850i xDrive convertible variant, packing a V8 engine that makes an impressive 523hp and 553 lb-ft. of torque. It does 0 to 60 in 3.8 seconds, while wowing you with its luxurious and high tech cabin.

BMW Autonomous Motorcycle

BMW Autonomous Motorcycle

BMW Motorrad spent 2 years developing a motorcycle that can start, accelerate, turn, and stop on its own. But the company won’t sell the bike to consumers. The data they’ve gathered will be used to integrate safety features into their production bikes.

2019 BMW Z4 M40i First Edition

2019 BMW Z4 M40i First Edition

Sharing a platform with the upcoming Toyota Supra, BMW’s new roadster is a bit more subdued than the concept that inspired it, but it still looks great, with aggressive styling, perfect 50:50 weight balance, and a 3.0L inline-6 that launches it from 0-to-60 in 4.4 sec.

2019 BMW M5 Competition

2019 BMW M5 Competition

The most powerful M5 sedan BMW has ever made packs a 4.4-liter twin turbo V8 that makes 617 hp and 553 lb-ft. of torque. It does 0-to-60 in 3.1s and 0-to-124 in 10.8s. The car offers sport exhaust, custom engine mounts, specialized tuning, and lots of other enhancements.

2019 BMW i8 Roadster

2019 BMW i8 Roadster

BMW’s futuristic hybrid electric car drops its top for its new variant, with a folding roof that maximizes storage space and shows off its flying buttresses. It gets a total of 369 hp, zooms from 0-to-60 in 4.4 seconds, and can drive up to 18 miles (US) on pure electric power.

How to Make a Hot Tub Car

How to Make a Hot Tub Car

We’ve seen hot tub boats, but a hot tub car? Only Colin Furze would be brave enough to take this on. As if the plan wasn’t crazy enough, he chose to sacrifice a BMW E30 convertible. Watch him try his best to seal and reinforce the car for its new occupant – a ton of hot water.

BMW Concept X7 iPerformance

BMW Concept X7 iPerformance

BMW is gunning for the Mercedes-Benz GLS, Lexus LX and other road-hogging SUVs with the X7. It’s the most spacious BMW ever designed, and has a panoramic glass roof that stretches all the way to the back. It will be available as a hybrid with a turbocharged engine. That kidney grill tho.

BMW Concept Z4

BMW Concept Z4

While the production version of BMW’s next Z4 won’t break cover until 2018, the concept already looks phenomenal. With its aggressive styling, we hope this rear-wheel drive 2-seater is as much fun to drive as it appears – and that BMW doesn’t change the design at all.

BMW Concept 8 Series

BMW Concept 8 Series

BMW is set to bring back its 8 Series coupe in 2018, and is showing off a stunning, curvaceous concept which offers a glimpse at what to expect. While it nods to the classic 850CSi, it’s a 21st century Bimmer on every other level. We look forward to finding out its full specs.

LEGO BMW R60/2 Concept

LEGO BMW R60/2 Concept

LEGO’s new BMW R 1200 GS set is boss, but we think this proposal for a 1967 R60/2 has the potential to be even better. Designed by LEGO Ideas member maximecheng03, it’s a tad skinnier than the actual bike, but we’re pretty sure LEGO can easily fix that.

BMW Motorrad Vision Next 100

BMW Motorrad Vision Next 100

BMW’s far future concept for a motorcycle is one that’s so smart and safe that riders will not need safety equipment. It balances on its own, and has a flexible frame and adaptive tires instead of joints, bearings or suspension.

1979 BMW M1 Procar

1979 BMW M1 Procar

One of only 40 racing variants of the BMW M1 E26. It was originally a spare race car for the Procar Championship, but it never saw action and was refitted to be a production car. Canepa put back as many Procar parts while keeping it street legal.

BMW 30 Years M3

BMW 30 Years M3

To celebrate 30 years of its vaunted M3, BMW is making 500 of this special 2016 M3 sports sedan. Based on the Competition package, its engine has been boosted to 450 hp, a sport-tuned adaptive suspension, exclusive Macao Blue metallic paint, and 30 year badging.

BMW R5 Hommage

BMW R5 Hommage

BMW celebrates the 80th anniversary of its pre-WW II street racer with this one-off bobber. The R5 Hommage has a restored 1936 R5 engine, but the rest of it was mostly custom made by BMW Motorrad and Unique Custom Cycles.

BMW 2002 Hommage

BMW 2002 Hommage

BMW celebrates the 50th anniversary of the 2 Series with this fu-manchu’d machine. Inspired by the 2002 Turbo and built on the M2, the 2002 Hommage has racing-inspired spoilers and a carbon fiber stripe, huge wheel arches and the classic mirrored Turbo script up front.

2017 BMW M240i

2017 BMW M240i

For 2017, the M235i is now the M240i, and with that name change, the sporty 2-door, 6-cylinder gets a bump to 335 hp and 369 lb-ft. of torque, with the AWD xDrive Coupe auto doing 0-to-60 in 4.2s, and the drop top doing the same in 4.4.

2017 BMW i3

2017 BMW i3

BMW didn’t change the outside of the new i3, but it’s what’s underneath that counts. That means more battery capacity, and an electric driving range of 114mi combined city/highway without affecting performance. The optional gas range extender also gets a bigger fuel tank.

2016 M2: A Great Sequel

2016 M2: A Great Sequel

Motor Trend’s Ignition takes the new BMW M2 Coupe out on the track and on the road to see if it can recreate the magic of the 1M. Despite gripes about the manual’s rev-matching feature, and a few cost-cutting measures, they find that it’s a fun car worthy of the M badge.

BMW M4: Factory

BMW M4: Factory

Director Alessandro Pacciani shot this phenomenal promo spot for the BMW M4, which is the epitome of carporn. Be sure to turn up the volume and go full screen to drink in this fantastic car as it revs its way through a dramatic and surreal industrial landscape.

Impuls BMW k101

Impuls BMW k101

Munich-based bike builders Philipp Wulk and Matthias Pittner aka Impuls turned a 1985 BMW K100 into this minimal racer. This particular bike features hand-drawn polygonal art by artist Fabian Gatermann. Custom parts include the rear frame, air intake and exhaust.

BMW Vision Next 100

BMW Vision Next 100

The Vision Next 100 represents BMW’s ideas for its far future models. Its segmented parts minimize drag on the outside and warn drivers of obstacles on the inside. The interior also subtly transforms when going between manual and autonomous driving modes.

BMW R NineT Scrambler

BMW R NineT Scrambler

BMW gives its cafe racer a more casual design. The R NineT Scrambler has the classic sheet steel and brown leather combo, an upright riding position and 19″/17″ wheels while still being open to customization.

2016 BMW M2 Coupe

2016 BMW M2 Coupe

The new BMW M2 could be the ultimate driftmobile. The rear-wheel drive sports coupe is powered by a twin-turbo 3.0L V6 that makes 370 hp, track-tuned suspension and brakes, and either a manual or dual-clutch gearbox. It also rounded the Nürburgring in 7:58.

BMW M4 GTS

BMW M4 GTS

This very special edition of the BMW M4 has been outfitted with a water-cooled, turbo inline-6 that pushes out 500 hp. It’s fitted with track aero bits, OLED taillamps, and had as much weight stripped out as possible for track day perfection. Top speed is 189 mph.
