Nürburgring Tests for the BMW i5 M50


The fact that the next M5 will be a plug-in hybrid may disappoint those who were expecting for an entirely electric M5.

2023 BMW X6 M Facelift Spy Photos Confirm Large Curved Display 


Since the introduction of iDrive 8, every new BMW LCI model has had the new screen configuration. Therefore, it comes as little surprise to see the new curved display for iDrive 8 in the BMW X6 M LCI facelift.


Drag Races

BMW M8 And iX M60 Drag Race 


Two of the quickest vehicles the Bavarians now offer will be put to the test in this brand-new drag race from Carwow. The M8 Competition and iX M60 couldn't be more dissimilar; one is a large family hauler with a zero-emissions powertrain, while the other is a grand tourer with performance aspirations. Before the race starts, let's compare the numbers to see which one has an advantage.

In a drag race, the BMW M4 CSL faces off against the Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA.


Can the Giulia GTA's production loss be made up by its weight advantage? Or can the better engine of the BMW M4 CSL allow the Bimmer to defeat the Alfa? That should be covered in the video.



Review of the 2023 BMW X1: First Drive


Vehicles like the vintage E30 3 Series boldly displayed it. However, even more contemporary vehicles like the two generations of the 2 Series coupe and today's more basic 3ers demonstrate that BMW is capable of creating a small car that is truly unique. The first two generations of BMW's X1 crossover felt less substantial because of vehicles like those. They had the roundel on the nose and the kidneys, but they never truly felt like BMWs.

First impressions of the 2023 BMW M4 CSL: The Untamable Monster


The M4 CSL is the most extreme iteration of BMW's M4 sports coupe that the firm has ever produced. Its 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged straight-six engine produces 543 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque, which is 40 more than the already potent M4 Competition.

FIRST DRIVE | The new BMW X7 rules the highways 


BMW has nearly all single-digit figures covered. The possibility of a 9-Series, a top-hierarchy model of some variation to be mentioned in the same breath as Mercedes-Maybach or Bentley, has been the subject of persistent rumors for a very long time.

Road test of the 2022 BMW M5 CS: An extreme everyday driving


With the M5, M5 Competition, and M5 CS, BMW offers something grand, something even grander, and perhaps the most grand of all. A 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine tuned to produce 627 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque is located beneath that protruding, vented hood. When you open the doors, the cockpit is covered in even more carbon, which instantly makes you want to do something foolish.

What Does an E61 Manual BMW M5 Touring Feel Like at the Nurburgring?


The E61-generation BMW M5 Touring owned by DriveTribe is rising to prominence on YouTube. It's a manual-swapped M5 wagon that James May and Richard Hammond jointly own, so how could it not be? They've both operated it on-screen. That's a very good recipe for online popularity among auto nerds. So it goes without saying that we have to keep up with the build and watch every new video, which is why we're eager to see this new one in which the E61 M5 Touring competed at the Nürburgring.

2023 BMW 330i LCI test drive: What a BMW Is Supposed to Be


The 3 Series receives a normal BMW LCI upgrade for 2023. That calls for brand-new headlamps that are sportier, leaner, and without the small undercut of the pre-LCI car's headlights. The front air intakes and the grille have both been modified. Overall, it has a sportier appearance than the previous model and appears much better in person. In person, it's a really stylish little sport sedan that will make BMW fans feel at home.

At 150 KM/H, a BMW 5 Series Touring E39 collides with a concrete wall.


Speed has never resulted in a fatality, to paraphrase Jeremy Clarkson. What gets you is when you become stagnant all of a sudden. Although it is technically accurate, it is difficult to picture someone surviving this incredibly horrific crash test.



The fastest foot-driven drift record was set by a BMW 3 Series E92.


Every year, the Guinness Book of Records expands in size as more and stranger records are added. As an illustration, we now know that there is a world record for the quickest foot-driven vehicle slide. Bartosz Ostalowski, a Polish drifter, now holds the record after reaching an astounding 231.66 km/h while operating an E92-era BMW 3 Series Coupe.

The M3 E30 Convertible is the only model in BMW M's history to roughly represent all convertibles ever produced.
