Testing season is fully underway in Germany and the upcoming F12 BMW 6-series is fully involved. Here we see the upcoming 6-series still wearing heavy camoflage over the entire front and rear ends, which will be the most drasticly changed parts of the car when compared to the current example. This is a car that as some may remember has been said to be the "Best-looking BMW in years" by BMWUSA officials.
A folding hardtop seems to be a sure bet at this point, especially considering the E93 has been wearing one for years now. This car wears a faux canvas top as part of its general camoflage, but make no mistake, there is a hardtop under that … CONTINUED
Check out this rare delivery of two M3 ZCP Competition models. The two lucky owners beat the closing of the European air space and took delivery together in Munich. They are currently stuck due to the ash cloud, but we can think of much worse things than being stuck with a pair of M3 competition models in Europe!
Didn’t get enough of the BMW M1/1M clip from the Nurburgring yesterday? We bring you even more footage in this extended version clip. Over 2 more minutes of footage on and around the track!
another nice video of the Schubert Z4 GT3 on the Nurburgring/Nordschleife
Jon Sibal has again produced a stunning rendering of an upcoming BMW, this time the BMW M1 coupe. The M1 elements seen on this car (aggressive front bumper, hood bulge, side vent and skirts, flared fenders) look possible from spy photos and has been confirmed to be very close to the real thing by BMW insider.
This is the first customer F10 535i in black sapphire that we have seen. The car belongs to lucky owner TitangrauII530iA, who provides these photos. The F10 looks amazingly sleek in black, particularly with its shadowline (black) window trim.
As promised, here is the first ever video of the BMW M1 production body test car hotlapping the Nurburgring, as well as footage from near the track. The M1 looks fast and very firmly planted around the turns, with minimal bodyroll, as well as sounding terrific! Not enough? We will bring you more tomorrow!
These are the first photos of the BMW M1 prototype with production body performing hotlap testing on the Nurburgring in extensive chassis and handling. Previously, weve only seen the red prototype running on the track. We will have a video for you later this afternoon, so stay tuned!
We bring you the first ever video of the upcoming 2011 BMW X3 (Chassis: F25) in prototype form, testing on the streets of Germany. The video gives us some nice size and shape perspective against other cars on the road and we can clearly see the front bumper design, grills, and headlamp shape, as well as the profile shape, and side windows.
Production of the new X3 is to be moved to South Carolina in the newly expanded plant alongside the other X vehicles.
The car itself is built upon a shared platform with the next generation 3-series (F30) and since the X3 will be released before the next generation 3-series it will … CONTINUED
