PostHeaderIcon 2019 BMW Z4 Leaked: Great Backside, Average Face

So the first official photos of the all-new 2019 BMW Z4 leaked over the weekend, revealing the sports roadster in almost full glory. The topless Bavarian, which shares many of its underpinnings with the new Toyota Supra, looks pretty much like the concept version, only it’s better in some places and worse is others.

The rear-end of the 2019 BMW Z4 is a work of art. The design here is clearly inspired by the new 8-Series as evidenced by the sculpted trunk lid featuring an integrated spoiler, large vents in the bumper and one of the sexiest tail light designs we’ve ever seen. The side profile is good as well, even though it does not have that nice swoop of the previous Z4 which gave that car a swell vintage sort of look. The front-end though, it is less than savory.

We don’t get it why the designers of the 2019 BMW Z4 stopped being inspired by the new 8er when they got to the front. What they have penned is even uglier than the face on the Z4 concept. The face of the production car comprises two fairly bland headlights that are way too small relative to the ginormous kidney grilles. We have to say though, we quite like the shape of the bumper on this M40i model and those gloss black bits that garnish the intakes.

Stay tuned for more, and official, details on the new Z4 over the coming days…

PostHeaderIcon Rumors Say that the BMW 3-Series GT Isn’t Long for this World

It looks like the BMW 3-Series GT might not see the light of day in the coming decade. According to BMW Blog, the 3-Series GT will be dropped from BMW’s lineup once the current generation goes out of production in 2020. This is solely because of poor sales figures, and the fact that the widely spread 3-Series has enough on its plate already.

PostHeaderIcon BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe Wald International Black Bison

The first time I saw the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe I was smitten. It was low, black, long and imposing. Unfortunately, all I could do back then is download a photograph and set it as a wallpaper on my desktop. Pictures of it garnished my working PC for at least three years. Now, at a time when the 6 Series is on its last legs, just waiting to be replaced by the 8 Series and the 8 Series Gran Coupe, Japanese tuner, Wald International, came up with yet another tuning package that prolongs the life of one of the most imposing cars of the decade. This is the Wald International Black Bison body kit that’s specifically tailored for 2011 and newer models of the BMW 640 and 650i.

PostHeaderIcon BMW X7 M

Rumors about an SUV larger than the X7 have been flying around for several years now. In 2014, BMW confirmed the X7 and the big hauler is set to break cover by the end of 2018. Naturally, we can’t help but wonder whether an M version is underway. Does it makes it sense, should BMW build one?

The large SUV market is pretty big in the U.S., where BMW is building the X7, but neither the Cadillac Escalade and the Lincoln Navigator are powerful enough to create demand for an M version. However, Mercedes-Benz is making an AMG version of the GLS, which is taking all market share in the performance department. The AMG-prepped GLS alone is a reason good enough for BMW to roll out an X7 M, but it should also be part of the company’s plans to expand the nameplate now that all crossovers are set to gain M versions. Let’s find out what it may bring to the table in the speculative review below.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 BMW X4 M40i with AC Schnitzer Goodies

The new BMW X4 has become kind of feminine in its design, having traded most of its sharp angels and aggressive details for soft and curvy lines. Building on that, BMW of Abu Dhabi has now got themselves a tricked-out 2019 BMW X4 M40i which has gone ahead and put on lipstick too, as if to say it is proud of being a girl now. 

Guess that makes this X4 the ideal car for Caitlin Jenner. At any rate, the 2019 BMW X4 M40i you see here showcases the best of what M Performance catalog has to offer for the new Sport Activity Coupe, plus a couple of aftermarket parts from the most famous BMW tuner of them all, AC Schnitzer. These parts are all great individually, but put together on this particular example, we have to say the end result is not our cup of tea.

The main ingredients of this special 2019 BMW X4 M40i, besides the lipstick red accents which are also found on the rims as well as rear bumper and aero parts, include M Performance Carbon Mirror covers and M Performance Front Stickers, blacked-out kidney grilles, black tailpipes, and special M wheels. Inside you get red Merino leather and matte carbon fiber trimming. But the biggest attraction, or repulsion, this car remains the AC Schnitzer parts, including the large tailgate wing and the front spoiler add-on.

PostHeaderIcon BMW Teases Z4 Before Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance Debut

The German brand is teasing the debut of an “all-new BMW production car” slated to drop cover during Monterey Car Week, and by all accounts, it’s looking like the hotly anticipated two-seater performance roadster will steal the spotlight.

PostHeaderIcon BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe

Having revived the 8 Series after two decades, BMW is also planning to build a Gran Coupe version of the two-door. A concept car was shown at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, where it was confirmed that the 8 Series Gran Coupe “will take over as the new flagship model” for the brand. Come July 2018, and the production model was spotted on the road.

Much like the coupe, the production car will share many features with the concept. However, this test vehicle has a milder appearance, as it appears to be a standard model and not the M version we saw in Geneva. Our paparazzi actually spotted two cars. There’s a regular 8 Series on a trailer and a sportier version with the M Sport package stretching its wheels on the road. The final product could break cover by the end of 2018 and join a niche that already includes the Mercedes-Benz CLS and the Audi A7.

PostHeaderIcon BMW M2 Competition Breaks Weird World Record in The Name of Marketing

BMW teased a new world record set by the M2 Competition a few weeks ago. It was unclear exactly what that record was, but the German automaker has now released a short video detailing exactly what it is. To say that it’s a strange record would be doing the whole attempt a disservice. And yet, for some reason, we got excited that the M2 Competition broke a record we didn’t even know existed. Why? Because it used a laser in doing it. That’s right, folks — a laser.

PostHeaderIcon BMW Hints at a Huge Debut At the Pebble Beach Concours; Is It Finally Time for the Z4 to Debut?

The German automaker was coy about the identity of the mysterious model, but unless Bimmer has plans for another swerve, it’s possible that we are finally going to see the long-awaited, much-hyped BMW Z4 Roadster.

PostHeaderIcon You Can Still Get Manual M Cars Because of the BMW M2, At Least Until Autonomy Kills Them

Automatic transmissions have taken over the world. Period. There are so many cars that are now sold as automatics-only that we are in a time where manual cars are a niche. The same applies to BMW M, except that there is a blessing in disguise that has kept stick-shifting alive – the M2. How, you ask?

PostHeaderIcon Another One Bites the Dust: BMW Z4 Roadster Fails to Negotiate Curves at the ‘Ring

No matter who you are or what you drive, the Nürburgring is one of the most fearsome race tracks in the world. Combining high speeds, big elevation changes, blind corners, and all other manner of technical challenges, the ‘Ring is undoubtedly one of the most dangerous places in the world to get your speed fix. Despite this, amateurs regularly try their hand at playing race driver here, and as evidenced in the following video, it doesn’t always go as planned.

PostHeaderIcon The BMW X5 M Avalanche by Auto-Dynamics

We are still a year or two away from the new BMW X5 M launch. Yet, the old one is still in excellent shape with its striking V-8 and intimidating looks. That’s why we are seeing it again coming out of a tuner’s garage. In this case, from the garage of Auto-Dynamics from Poland.

These guys are no strangers to tuning all sorts of German machinery, including Porsches, Audis and BMWs. Their latest project is the F85 BMW X5 M, and it was massaged to deliver more power than the Lamborghini Urus and drive to 62 mph almost as quickly as the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera. Apart from giving credibility to Russian mobsters, to sons of Arab oil barons, and really successful cocaine kings, cars like this show what the SUV world is doing nowadays. It seems that the world of SUVs has reached the same stage as what tuned sports cars had reached twenty years ago – a place between rationality and madness.

PostHeaderIcon BMW M2 Competition Configurator Has Surprisingly Few Options

Unveiled in 2015, the BMW M2 became the spiritual successor to the 1M Coupe and gained notoriety for being a closer rendition to the original M3 than the modern M4. Come 2018 and BMW unveiled the M2 Competition, a more powerful version of the coupe.

While Competition-branded cars are usually upgrades to the regular M model, the M2 Competition is actually a replacement for the standard M2, which was discontinued. Upgrades inside and out are rather mild, but the Competition variant stands out for featuring the engine from the bigger M4 under the hood. Available to order starting this month, the M2 Competition can now be customized through the company’s online configurator. Let’s have a closer look at the options.

PostHeaderIcon AC Schnitzer BMW i8 Roadster Styling Kit Revealed

It is a given that every new BMW gets an exclusive treatment from the folks at AC Schnitzer, even if that BMW is a super high-end model with amazing looks that don’t even need modification. So welcome the AC Schnitzer BMW i8 Roadster featuring a full custom body kit and wheels. 

If you thought that the intricate design of the i8 does not lend itself to extreme makeovers, well, think again. AC Schnitzer BMW i8 Roadster proves these guys can tune a spaceship if that’s what’s required of them. And it’s not just a mild treatment they have given the drop-top i8. They’ve altered pretty much every panel and every component, so the hybrid supercar looks now like it’s wearing a track suit, ready to hit the gym.

Whether this is a particularly cool look AC Schnitzer BMW i8 Roadster is sporting or not is a question for another time. Here we only look at it technically, and from that viewpoint the job is a good one. The car is given a revised font bumper and grille with a huge carbon under-splitter and winglets, new carbon side vents and strakes, even more dynamic skirts than the already sporty one on the i8, a rear diffuser, and of course a large rear wing, also in carbon. The kit is complemented with a set of 21 inch wheels, themselves backed by adjusted suspension that now sits 25mm lower.

AC Schnitzer also provides a number of goodies for the interior, such as sport pedals, velour floor mats, and some fancy covers for the iDrive controller. But currently they have nothing to offer for the i8’s hybrid powertrain.

PostHeaderIcon Watch the BMW M8 Tear Ass Around the Nurburgring

Like a shot of the good juice on a clear morning, the BMW M8 was spotted at the Nurburgring doing some good ‘ol fashion testing. The long-bodied beauty was dressed in heavy camouflage, but the coupe’s unmistakable look can still be gleaned underneath all that wrapping.
