The BMW M2 CS Racing Will Put You In The Hot Seat For Relatively Cheap

The BMW M2 CS Racing Will Put You In The Hot Seat For Relatively Cheap

You know what they say about racing: if you want to make a small fortune doing it, start with a large fortune. This endeavor isn’t cheap and never has been. But there’s now a racing variant of the BMW M2 CS , and it seems like a pretty good value.

The 2020 BMW M2 CS Sends Out The 2 Series With A Lot Of Carbon Fiber

Perhaps your opinion of the BMW 2 Series range has declined somewhat with the introduction of the new Ford Focus—I mean 2 Series Gran Coupe . Understandable! So if a Mini-based sedan isn’t your idea of what a 2 Series should be, consider this instead: the BMW M2 CS, the swan song for this great rear-drive coupe. It comes with lots of carbon fiber. Get excited.

How The Mythical Alpina B3's Specs Compare To A BMW M3 And M340i

How The Mythical Alpina B3's Specs Compare To A BMW M3 And M340i

You knew BMW tuner Alpina would dial in a 3 Series sedan if you saw the treatment it gave to the 3 Series wagon . (Sorry, “Touring.”) We’re still waiting for specifics on what the next BMW M3 be able to do, but we have enough information for a little bench racing.

Alpina’s latest iteration of its B3 sport sedan was launched at the Tokyo Motor Show this week in Japan, where the cars are...

BMW Should Make Its Kidney Grilles Wider, Not Taller

BMW Should Make Its Kidney Grilles Wider, Not Taller

BMW’srecent concept cars and leaked pics of their new 4 Series all have one very noticeable thing in common: massive, mutated kidney grilles dominating the front end. It’s a striking look, but I’m not so sure a good look, and while I’m all for reducing the grille to its most fundamental, iconic elements, I think there are better ways to go.

Like what I slapped together in a quick sketch up...

We're Really Doing This, Huh

We're Really Doing This, Huh

I was hoping it wouldn’t be this bad. I saw the spy videos of the new BMW 4 Series running around the Nürburgring, and though the car was heavily camouflaged, it seemed like maybe the gigantic nose from the BMW Concept 4 had been dialed down significantly. Perhaps, I figured, somebody had come to their senses.

This Is Why Mercedes' Formula E Powertrain Sounds Way Different Than All The Others

Mercedes is making its Formula E debut this year as the series launches into its sixth season, and the team is already making waves at pre-season testing in Valencia. The Mercedes’ power unit sounds way different than any of the other cars on track, especially under braking. What’s up with that?

Plenty of people noticed it, but thankfully Chain Bear was at the track and decided to break it...

M Performance Parts Unfortunately Don't Do The 2020 BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe Any Favors

The new 2020 BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe is very disappointing to look at. It’s the worst parts of the ugly European 2 Series hatchback and the U.S. 2 Series sports coupe bundled into a sedan that somehow looks worse than a Ford Focus. Turns out you can’t hide ugly with BMW M Performance parts, either.

BMW Design Boss Defends That... That Face

BMW recently unveiled the Concept 4 , whose name might not resonate because it was probably hard to get past the vehicle’s glaring grille in order to read the details. But even if the rest of the world thought the front of the car looked like the snout of a giant radioactive pig, BMW is standing behind it.

This Soviet Dump Truck Has A Bavarian Secret Under The Hood

This Soviet Dump Truck Has A Bavarian Secret Under The Hood

I love Soviet things. I love surprises. This truck? This truck is both. It’s a ZIL-130 truck with the 600 horsepower drivetrain of a BMW X5M underneath. And it’s more than surprising for anyone who pulls away next to it from a traffic light.

The ZIL-130 was introduced in 1967 and quickly became an important cog in the Soviet industrial and agricultural machine. It also had a military version,...

How A 409,000-Mile BMW M5 Compares To A Garage Queen M5 On The Dyno

How A 409,000-Mile BMW M5 Compares To A Garage Queen M5 On The Dyno

It should come as no surprise that a babied car is going to perform differently on the dyno than one with more than 300,000 more miles on it. But what is the cost of all those miles? Can your car keep its power while you drive it hard and often?

The guys at LegitStreetCars did their best to find out, comparing their 409,000 mile E39 M5 to another with less than 80,000 miles on it.

The 2020 BMW X5 M And X6 M Are Here To Meet The Staggering Demand For 617 HP Crossovers

Do you think the 335 horsepower, 456 HP, and 523 HP variants of the BMW X5 are all underpowered? No, of course you don’t, but that hasn’t stopped the Bavarian Crossover Brand from debuting a new BMW X5 M, along with its strangely-shaped sibling the X6 M, with a ridiculous 617 horsepower twin-turbo V8.

The Next Jaguar F-Type Likely To Have A BMW V8: Report

The Next Jaguar F-Type Likely To Have A BMW V8: Report

As far as I am concerned, the Jaguar F-Type is the best car Jaguar currently makes. It’s beautiful and makes wondrous noises. But it’s also getting quite long in the tooth, and folks have been discussing the successor car for a bit now. This newest rumor furthers the idea the next F-Type could have a BMW-sourced engine. Hm.

The rumor comes via Auto Express, which asserts Jaguar Land Rover sees...

Alpina's XB7 Could Come To America: Report

Alpina makes BMWs go faster. They’re really good at it too. In the past, this wasn’t so hard. All they needed to do was have a good look under the hood and slap some stickers on BMW’s sedans, coupes and wagons. But BMW is making big SUVs like the X7 now, and while that big boy is no slouch , Alpina’s got some ideas for it and once they’re done, it’ll likely be coming for us in America...

BMW Says What We Already Were All Thinking With Sex In Self-Driving Car Ad

BMW Says What We Already Were All Thinking With Sex In Self-Driving Car Ad

BMW doesn’t sell a self-driving car, but it did take some time to produce a quick 20 second video about what the world would be like if it did. And it turns out, people would fuck.

But I’m pretty sure we all already assumed that. We are still, at our core, fairly primal creatures. We can invent something amazing and revolutionary, say like the internet, or self-driving cars, but our second...
