We’ve finally welcomed the return of the BMW 8 Series, with attractive styling that isn’t quite as exciting as the classic model but still looks good. None of that will matter soon, as these patent renderings of an 8 Series Gran Coupe are going to ruin everything.
We’ve all been dreaming of the day we could pair our love for BMW’s newest grand tourer with the nation that brought us the smooth tunes of the saxophone. It’s finally come, as BMW of Belgium’s configurator for the new 8 Series is live.
The last time Toyota teamed up on production duties with another automaker, we got the GT86 and the Subaru BRZ—cars that are very good, but also nearly identical in every way. We know that the new Toyota Supra will share a platform, transmission and engine with the new BMW Z4, but apparently their driving experiences…
It’s early in the morning at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and in case you didn’t pick it up from the cutaways to sleeping crew members, folks are clearly a bit tired. This morning started off with a few major crashes ‘n’ bashes. One of the unlucky cars that had to retire was one of the brand new BMW M8 GTEs as it was on…
Yes, it’s got an M in its name but it’s not actually an M car. This is something you and I must come to accept together. But besides that, what do you want to know about the 2018 BMW X3 M40i?
Here it is, officially: The 2019 BMW 8 Series Coupe. We’ve been waiting a long time for this thing to show its face and, my God, does it look good.
I know leaked images are always pretty exciting, but, to be fair, this car has already proven to be leakier than the radiators in any liquid-cooled car I seem to own. First we got a big hint at the look of the resurrected 8 Series via the concept, we’ve seen the test mules, and at the beginning of the year, we saw…
If I were a car thief, which I’m not, I wouldn’t sell my stolen goods on Craigslist. And yet, a guy from Memphis was arrested on Monday for doing just that, according to police. The car in question? A BMW i8, offered for the low price of $87,000.
The BMW X5! Scourge of school drop-off zones! Bimmer’s big behemoth! A true German luxury crossover if there ever was one. It’s just about the last vehicle you’d expect to get sawzalled apart into a crazy open-top off-road mud buggy, but this exists and it rules hard.
I know I’m going to get a lot of hate for this take, but I don’t care. I gotta LIVE MY TRUTH. I gotta FOLLOW MY BLISS. And my bliss, for this exact moment, is what looks to be the 2019 BMW Z4, revealed in these patent drawings way before the curtain officially drops.
A prototype of the soon-to-be-unveiled BMW 8 Series coupe was involved in a serious crash in Bavaria on Saturday, killing the passenger.
If you’re doing anything that can be categorized as “road rage,” it’s a pretty safe bet that you’re at least struggling with assholeism. This guy in Austin, Texas, though, appears to be so overtaken by chronic assholeism that he’s committed one of the stupidest road rage acts I’ve ever seen.
Look, you may have things like “science” or “math” that will tell you that Kristaps Blušs’ carbon-kevlar BMW M3 with a 9,000 RPM American V8 under the hood isn’t technically the fastest car in the visible universe, but empirical evidence (this video, my own eyes and ears) suggest otherwise.
Here it is, the 2019 BMW X5, the all-new version of BMW’s big SUV stalwart. These pics that were spotted on a Chinese car forum by Carscoops and a BMW rep confirmed their authenticity to us. It’s a tasteful evolution from the outgoing model, with bigger nostrils, an interior looks slightly fancier, and taillights that…
The upcoming all-new BMW Z4 is the often-chastised German brand’s attempt to convince us all that the sports car isn’t dead, and that it can beat the Porsche Boxster. A pre-production drive reported by Auto Express promises the car is “somewhere between good and very good.” If true this also bodes well for the new …
I bought a stick shift car halfway across the country without knowing how to drive it. The road trip back is how I would learn. That, or they’d find me dead on the side of I-10 in a teal 1990s BMW compact, stalled for eternity. One of those.
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
Like many people, I could never quite understand the BMW X6. And I can understand the BMW X6 M even less. Help me out, friend: do you get why BMW makes an SUV that’s essentially the X5, but with a steep, sloping roof purely for dubious aesthetics, then has the gall to add a twin-turbo V8 engine with 567 horsepower,…
Most of the time when you see a development mule, a preproduction prototype for a car in the works, it looks basically like the finished product with some extra cladding screwed on. Often, that’s exactly what you’re looking at. But sometimes you get to see the really early stuff, and it is weird.
