PostHeaderIcon BMW’s 8 Series Concept Looks Dead Sexy

Hot on the heels of a leak recently published online, BMW has revealed its latest 8 Series Concept car in a succession of official photos and video. The design study is scheduled to make its full public debut at the Concoso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este show in Italy this weekend, a venue where BMW has a history of revealing awesome concepts (last year, the automaker offered up the slick 2002 Hommage Concept). The 8 Series Concept is framed as a modern sports coupe worthy of flagship status, and previews an upcoming production model arriving sometime next year. BMW hopes this sleek sports coupe will manage to rekindle consumer interest in large luxury two-doors with a dollop of sporting intent under the hood.

“The number 8 has always represented the pinnacle of sports performance and exclusivity at BMW,” said Harald Kruger, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG. “The forthcoming BMW 8 Series Coupe will demonstrate that razor-sharp dynamics and modern luxury can go hand-in-hand. This will be the next model in the expansion of our luxury-car offering and will raise the benchmark for coupes in the segment. In the process, we will strengthen our claim to leadership in the luxury class.” The 8 Series Concept will replace the 6 Series Coupe in BMW’s lineup, surpassing the outgoing model in terms of exterior dimensions. Built on the same platform as the 7 Series, the 8 Series is also rumored to receive a turbo V-12 powerplant for motivation.

PostHeaderIcon BMW 8 Series Concept Images Leaked Ahead of Official Debut

The BMW 8 Series Concept has allegedly leaked online only a day before BMW’s official debut of the two-door coupe at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este on May 26. The leak was picked up by Carscoops, but no information about the source or details about the 8 Series were given. While the three images are likely real shots of the BMW concept, there is a chance these could be renderings from a skilled digital artist. The truth won’t reveal itself until tomorrow when BMW pulls the sheets off the concept GT car.

The debut is set along the shores of Lake Como in northern Italy. The high-class concourse event has long been a place where automakers showcased their latest exclusive models. It’s fitting, then, that the 8 Series concept should make its arrival there. Earlier this month, BMW CEO Harald Kuüger was quoted saying, “The BMW 8 Series Coupe will build on our tradition of luxurious sports coupes and add a genuine dream car to our line-up – a slice of pure automotive fascination. The 8 Series Coupe will underpin our claim to leadership in the luxury segment. I can tell you today that this will be a true luxury sports coupe.”

PostHeaderIcon What’s The Best Sporty Luxury Sedan You Can Get For Less Than $50K?

At its most basic, a sport sedan should be a happy balance between two competing philosophies. The “sport” half of the equation should make it engaging, both in the way it drives, and the way it looks. A sport sedan should issue a dose of adrenaline when the hammer is down, and be a willing dance partner in the corners. It’s also gotta draw attention, turning heads as it goes, making its owner pause momentarily after exiting and locking the doors. Then there’s the “sedan” bit. A sport sedan isn’t supposed to be stripped down and basic – practicality and comfort are paramount. Often used as a daily driver, backside coddling should be there in abundance, complementing the car’s speed potential, rather than taking away from it. All told, it’s a big ask, but this segment has plenty of contenders vying for the title of best. In this comparison, we look at six of the top entries and sort them out, from first to last.

Listed in alphabetical order, this comparison will take a look at the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series, Chrysler 300, Infiniti Q50, Jaguar XE, and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. We’ve evaluated each in terms of exterior aesthetics, interior comfort and technology, powertrain and drivetrain specs, and chassis and handling. We’ve also included a glut of info in chart and graph form to help you make a quick comparison. So without further ado, let’s take a look at the best sporty luxury sedan you can get for less than $50,000.

bmw i8 dark knight

As usual, if you are in search of the craziest, most zesty body kits you have to search for your object of desire in the catalogs of Japanese tuners. The car we’re featuring this time is the BMW i8 which a tuner called Garage Eve.Ryn has tuned into a weird and wonderful thing they call Energy Sport Evo BMW i8 Dark Knight.

Before we get to the details of BMW i8 Dark Knight and the little pieces that add up to make such a great effect in the overall looks of the car, you need to check this thing out up close:

BMW i8 Dark Knight by Eve.Ryn features completely custom bumpers which at the front feature a new spoiler intake combo that is frankly not very well designed and looks fairly cheap. But the flaws are hard to notice thanks to a unique feature they have used, which is a a kind of vertical spoiler fitted to the edge of the bumpers. They not only complement the headlights with their carbon fiber insert, but also become part of the fender flares. Yes, that means the Dark Knight i8 is a wide body and it gets a pair of dynamic side skirts to enhance that look. A new diffuser, a rear spoiler, new wheels and some adjustments to the suspension are among the other highlights of this bad boy.

2018 bmw m5 xdrive

It is almost time for BMW to release the hot version of the new 5 Series and so they decided to whet our appetite by released a teaser trailer confirming the super sedan’s all-wheel-drive option. That’s right, the 2018 BMW M5 xDrive breaks the tradition of these cars being only rear-drive, but that is not such a bad thing, especially as you can make the car 2WD at the touch of a button. 

You see, the new M xDrive all-wheel-drive system featured in the 2018 BMW M5 xDrive is quite a sophisticated one with a unique governing software BMW is particularly proud of. Granted, there is that familiar BMW complexity as the system offers five different configurations based on combinations of the DSC modes (DSC on, MDM, DSC off) and M xDrive modes (4WD, 4WD Sport, 2WD). But if you get the setting just right this car can take you to motoring nirvana.

Also confirmed for the 2018 BMW M5 xDrive is the 4.4 liter bi-turbo V8 and an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic, although performance figures are yet to be revealed. Well, at least we know there is no downsizing for the time being. BMW also promises the acceleration times are going to boggle your mind, and that there is certain naughtiness engineered into the new M5 that makes it not only a perfect family car, but also extremely good one for those rare occasions where you can really use the car’s capabilities. And that’s how an M5 should be: a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

BMW M2 M Performance

BMW M2 continues to rule its small niche market because there really isn’t any other small, sports coupe that offer this bad boy’s awesome blend of power, handling, and cool looks. But if you are starting to feel a little bored with yours, there are ways to improve the vehicle, and you don’t even have to go aftermarket. 

No, the key here is the M Performance department who has a huge catalog of superb part for improving all BMW M cars, including BMW M2. What we have here is a fully kitted out BMW M2 M Performance. It’s another unique commission by BMW Abu Dhabi Motors and what we want to do know is have a detailed look at it inside and out:

PostHeaderIcon BMW X5

It wasn’t until 2000 that BMW stepped into the SUV segment with the BMW X5, and after 16 years, that single SUV has spawned four other crossovers, with three slotted in the lineup below it and one above it. Since the X5’s release, it has been through three different generational changes. The first happened in 2006 when the E70 X5 was born for the 2007 model year. That model lasted until 2013 when we were blessed with the current F15 generation of the X5.

Notice that trend between the generational shifts of the X5? Every six years or so, BMW releases a redesigned model. And, that probably explains why we’re looking at these spy shots of what appears to be a very early iteration of the next BMW X5. The SUV in the pictures is in what I like to call “bare-bones testing,” meaning it is covered in camo and missing most of its identifiable features. Even that kidney bean grille has been left at the shop for this trip.

Since it is in the very early stages of testing, there isn’t a whole lot we can say about the next generation of the X5, but we can speculate some. Should BMW follow its current trend, we should see the fourth-generation X5 unveiled in 2018. Until then, let’s take a look at what is going on in these pictures.

Updated 04/27/2017: Our spy photographers caught the upcoming BMW X5 out for a new testing session around Nurburgring.

PostHeaderIcon BMW X7

When BMW joined the SUV market with the X5 back in 1999, little did we know that the German manufacturer will become such an important player in this segment. But in 15 years, the Bavarian brand has launched no fewer than four different crossovers. At least two more are underway as of 2017, with the X7 to join the family as a range topper, above the popular X5 and the sportier X6. The SUV was already spotted on public roads and we have just enough info to speculate as to what it may bring to the table.

The Bavarian brand made an announcement about the X7 in 2014, when it revealed that it will be built at its plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina, which also produces the X3, X5, X5 M, X6, and X6 M models. Although production was initially planned to start in 2016, it appears that the X7 will hit the assembly line later, most likely in 2017. There’s no word as to when the X7 will make its public debut, but I expect it to break cover in the second half of 2017, meaning it could go on sale for the 2019 model year. When it arrives in showrooms, it will become BMW’s largest offering yet and will enable the German manufacturer to compete against SUVs such as the Mercedes-Benz GLS, Range Rover, and even the Cadillac Escalade.

Updated 04/25/2017: Our spy photographers spotted the upcoming X7 out for a new testing session around Nurburgring.

PostHeaderIcon The BMW M4 CS Is a Glorified M4 for Suckers with Fat Wallets

So BMW finally unveiled the M4 CS. Big whoop! I simply cannot get excited about this glorified M4. And here’s why.

While the M4 is a great sports coupe that’s capable of great things on both the road and the track, it’s still far from being the iconic M3 coupe we all love. There are many reasons for that, but I’ll keep it short and mention the one that’s bugging me the most: it’s too damn heavy. This thing weighs nearly 3,500 pounds, only some 50 pounds lighter than the lightest version of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Let me say that again: 50 pounds lighter than a four-door sedan that’s significantly longer.

So the M4 CS is a tad lighter (but not light enough for BMW to add the “L” for “lightweight” to the “CS” badge), the engine boasts an extra 35 horsepower, and it’s a tenth-second quicker to 60 mph. Let’s say it’s not that bad given how difficult it is to make performance cars increasingly quicker nowadays, but for all of the above, you have to pay the equivalent of an M4 and a half. So 35 horsepower, a tenth-second, a carbon splitter, and a decklid spoiler for an extra $30,000+ over the base price of an M4.

How is this possible? What kind of deal is this?

PostHeaderIcon The Brand-New BMW M4 CS Is a GTS without the Big Wing

Last week we saw a bunch of great cars debut at the New York Auto Show, while this week we’re going to Shanghai, China, for more new vehicles. But, while carmakers unveiled their new products in New York and Shanghai, BMW took the wraps of its latest performance car outside these auto shows. Needless to say, it’s stealing the show because this new car is the highly anticipated M4 CS.

Designed to bridge the gap between the M4 with the Competition Package and the wild M4 GTS, this Club Sport-type coupe sports a number of custom features inside and out and a tweaked inline-six engine.

On the outside, it’s heavily based on the GTS, sharing almost the same aero kit and design, sans the big rear wing. However, the limited-edition M4 comes with an exclusive front splitter made from exposed carbon-fiber and a redesigned Gurney trunk lid spoiler. It also shares the OLED taillights and the carbon-fiber-reinforced (CFRP) engine hood and roof, which pretty much makes it an M4 GTS without the wing.

Things are of the same variety inside the cabin, with the usual M4 interior complemented by race-oriented features like M sports seats trimmed in leather and Alcantara and pull loops on the door panels. The latter are made from compacted natural fibers and have a unique look.

Arguably the most important changes were operated under the hood, where the turbocharged, 3.0-liter inline-six engine roars to the tune of 460 horsepower. That’s 10 horses more than the M4 with the Competition Package, but 33 horses less than the M4 GTS. Hitting 60 mph with the standard dual-clutch automatic takes 3.8 seconds, a tenth-second less than the standard M4. The GTS remains the quickest at 3.7 ticks though. The top speed of the M4 CS remains locked at 174 mph, the same figure you get with the M Driver’s package. That’s 19 mph more than standard top speed of M cars, but its 15 mph below the GTS’.

The suspension of the new BMW M4 CS largely mirrors that of the M4 with the Competition Package, but the control systems for the Adaptive M suspension, DSC and Active M Differential have been modified. As a result, the M4 CS lapped the Nurburgring in 7:38 minutes, making it the second-quickest Bimmer on the ’Ring, after the M4 GTS, which is around 10 seconds quicker. The CS’ time is actually pretty impressive, making it as quick as the Lexus LFA and Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera. At the same time, it’s quicker than the McLaren Mercedes SLR and the previous-generation Porsche 911 GT3.

The exclusive, limited-run, M4 CS will be priced from €116,900 in Europe. U.S. pricing and availability is not yet known.

So BMW turned up at the Shanghai Auto Show, a pretty significant event given the size of the Chinese market, with only a new limited edition M4. It’s not even a good one. The 2018 BMW M4 CS is a gap filler trying to win over those customers for whom the M4 GTS is too hot but the M4 Competition Package doesn’t quite cut it. 

So BMW M4 CS slots neatly between the two with a 460 horsepower engine, 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.9 seconds, and electronically limited top speed of 280 km/h (174 mph) thanks to the standard M Driver’s Package. The only available transmission is the seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission (M DCT) with Drivelogic, and the suspension system is lifted directly from the Competition Package. All of that, of course, means the M4 CS is a pretty capable sports coupe with a Nurburgring lap time record of 7 min. 38 sec.

Photo Album:

Appearance-wise, BMW M4 CS looks like a subtly kitted-out M4 what with the carbon fiber front splitter, Gurney and rear diffuser, together with the long CFRP bonnet. The car also comes with OLED taillights, and exclusive light-alloy wheels (front: 9 J x 19, rear: 10 J x 20). As for the features and equipment, the highlights include M sports seats trimmed in leather/Alcantara, automatic climate control, a version of the BMW HiFi system Professional adapted to the signature acoustic demands of the M4 CS and the Navigation system Professional.

The 2018 BMW M4 CS is a gap filler trying to win over those customers for whom the M4 GTS is too hot but the M4 Competition Package doesn’t quite cut it. 

So BMW M4 CS slots neatly between the two with a 460 horsepower engine, 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.9 seconds, and electronically limited top speed of 280 km/h (174 mph) thanks to the standard M Driver’s Package. The only available transmission is the seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission (M DCT) with Drivelogic, and the suspension system is lifted directly from the Competition Package. All of that, of course, means the M4 CS is a pretty capable sports coupe with a Nurburgring lap time record of 7 min. 38 sec.

Photo Album:

Appearance-wise, BMW M4 CS looks like a subtly kitted-out M4 what with the carbon fiber front splitter, Gurney and rear diffuser, together with the long CFRP bonnet. The car also comes with OLED taillights, and exclusive light-alloy wheels (front: 9 J x 19, rear: 10 J x 20). As for the features and equipment, the highlights include M sports seats trimmed in leather/Alcantara, automatic climate control, a version of the BMW HiFi system Professional adapted to the signature acoustic demands of the M4 CS and the Navigation system Professional.

Just when it seemed like the aftermarket rush for all things BMW M4 was dying down, we’re once again reminded exactly how popular the performance coupe is in the eyes of the tuning world. Yes, there’s a new tuning program available for the M4 and, in case you’re wondering about its capabilities, the German tuner is promising loads of extra juice and power to the tune of 670 horses and 560 pound-feet of torque, more than what G-Power had at its disposal with its previous kit for the same model.

This is what you get when you let a tuner like G-Power stay in the shed longer than it probably had any business of being in. It’s not just about the extra power either, although to be clear, those numbers do scream top-shelf tuning quality. It’s also about rounding out the M4’s aesthetic and handling qualities, two things we also know G-Power is adept at if you give it space and freedom to work its magic on a program.

The visuals on this program are eye-catching, to say the least, especially those 21-inch Hurricane RR forged wheels whose bleeding orange color blends into the coupe’s own body color, creating a creamsicle-like treatment that’s definitely not for the weak of heart. Let’s also not forget about the mechanical nips and tucks received by the M4, most of which are presumably done to give the coupe a more rounded driving experience, something that should come as great value for a car now packing just shy of 700 ponies under its hood.

PostHeaderIcon All BMW Brought To New York Was A Set Of Wheels

All things considered, I’d argue the 2017 New York International Auto Show turned out to be pretty decent. The list of debuts ended up including stuff that’s fast, stuff that’s fancy, and a few things that are actually kinda weird. Nevertheless, a few of the automakers in attendance didn’t really bring their A-game for 2017, including BMW. You see, the only new stuff propped up at the Bimmer booth this year was a couple sets of upgraded wheels.

That said, they are pretty nice wheels. First up are large multi-spoke rollers finished in silver and fitted to a BMW M4 Convertible. The silver color is nicely complemented by the drop-top’s Yas Marina Blue exterior, filling the flared fenders with purpose. Get them as part of the optional Competition Package.

Then there are dark, split five-spoke wheels shown on a scorching Austin Yellow M3. Finished in black, these rollers look awesome alongside the dark-colored trim on the sporty four-door, and come offered in a variety of sizes between 19 and 20 inches in diameter. The Bavarians call them 763M, and they come direct from the brand’s M tuning division.
