Who doesn’t like dyno tests? Miserable people, that’s who, or perhaps low-down dirty miscreants who have shoved Iron Dukes into their GTOs. The rest of us always enjoy the cold, hard truth that a dyno wrings out of cars, and today we’d like to share this comparison of a 2018 BMW M3 with the Competition Package and a…
There was a point where I thought simply owning an M car was cool enough. Apparently, that isn’t the case anymore, because BMW keeps pumping out M Plus Some More models that make me feel a simple M car is now inadequate somehow. The latest offender is this, the 2018 BMW M4 CS. For the people who missed out on the BMW…
Remember two years ago, when BMW came out with that track-ready, water-injected BMW M4 GTS concept car? And then they actually produced it, and put a huge price tag on the thing? Well, we have some lovely photos of the car that you can view for a grand total of: free.
You’ve seen the BMW 4 Series, which is the two-door version of the 3 Series. You’ve seen the BMW M4, the “enthusiast’s” variant that’s still a little too soft. Now there’s the BMW M4 GTS, which is compromised just enough to finally make the M4 feel like a real M car.
How does the old BMW 1M coupe and the current M4 stack up against the shiny blue new BMW M2?
If anything can make a dark alleyway look artsy and inviting, it’s a shiny, clean BMW. Perhaps there are a few more things that make up that list, but the BMW isn’t a bad start.
On the eve of the launch of the BMW M4 GTS, the Bavarians brought some of their older cars out to play too. This has me wondering which one had the best interior—who wore it best, as they say in the world of high fashion.
I’ll level with you straight off; if you’re looking for a clip of everyone’s favorite sports coupe in an honest hot lap, go ahead and scroll on. This is not that. This BMW M4 video is a lot wackier and I dare say, way more fun to watch.
The new BMW M4 GTS is almost hilariously expensive, nearly $100,000 more expensive than a base BMW M4. Part of the justification for the price comes down to a trick water injection system that blows from the car’s butt up its nose.
Here’s a weird tidbit about the new BMW M2: even though it’s a size smaller than its M4 big brother, the M2 is hardly any lighter.
BMW is adding a Competition Package this year to the options list on the 2016 M3 sedan, M4 coupe and even the convertible. Don’t get too hung up on the word “Competition,” but it actually looks like a nice appearance package with a bonus 19 horsepower.
BMW likes to haul out the vintage CSL-inspired racing livery every now and then for their newer cars. I, for one, am not inclined to tell them to stop doing this.
Oh hey, remember when BMW released the track-ready, water-injected M4 GTS Concept? Wow, what a neat concept that was. Just a concept, though, of course. SYKE! They’re actually building it, and just calling it the BMW M4 GTS. We never ever never ever ever saw this coming. Amazing, BMW.
The BMW M4 is a perfectly lovely machine. In stock form, its 3.0-liter, six-cylinder, twin-turboed engine makes 425 horsepower and 406 foot-pounds of torque. With a base MSRP of $62,400, that’s a ton of speed wrapped in a beautiful package – far more car than the price tag would suggest.
The BMW M4 is certainly capable on the track. It certainly performs at the track. But it’s not entirely built specifically for the track. The BMW Concept M4 GTS, as BMW calls it, or the BMW M4 GTS Concept, as those who prefer a more grammatically correct nomenclature refer to it, is supposed to be that no-speed-limit…
It’s about 1,137 miles from Seattle to Los Angeles if you drive the most expedient route, the inland U.S. Interstate 5. Go ahead and do it that way — if you hate fun, yourself, America, and the idea of discovering some of the best driving roads on this continent.
“No manual, no care.” That’s a refrain among so many car enthusiasts. But there are times when that is just a cliched statement that has no basis in reality. Sometimes, a manual transmission makes a car worse.
You start destroying the rear pair of Michelin Pilot Super Sports earlier. Yep, that’s pretty much what happens.
