In 1980 BMW presented the BMW M535i, a family sedan combined with a sports car. It became a success. The 3.5 litre 6 cylinder engine produced 218 HP. Five years later the BMW M5 was developed on the base of this car.
This is the story of Hervé Poulain, the inventor of the BMW Art Car. He tells us how it all started.
A great look into BMW’s hallowed sanctuary car collection of cars past, including everything from race cars, to one off cars, to cars featured in movies.
To find out how thirty years of evolution has changed the BMW supercar, Auto Express we took along a classic M1 to meet the new i8 at the Auto Express test track. The BMW i8 features a 1.5-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol from the MINI Cooper driving the rear wheels, while an electric motor drives the front. Under the engine cover of the M1 is something altogether much more traditional: a 3.5-litre six-cylinder unit putting out 277bhp and 330Nm of torque. This compares to 357bhp … CONTINUED

Documentary on the E30 3 Series and its devotees.
Great little short film featuring e30 by Max Daines.
The BMW Coupé 1600 of 1967 is a rare exotic. The origin of the car is the former Glass Company in Dingolfing, which was taken over by BMW in 1966 and is now one of the most important locations for BMW. The 1600 GT was equipped with a new transmission, a faster engine and embodies Italian design. It stands for the foresight of expansion from BMW of the 60′s.
For the first time in history 2 drift cars made it up to the most impressive road in the world.
The romanian Transfagarasan. Built in the 70ies. 6k tons of dynamite were used to make it and 40 lifes lost. But from above it looks like every great corner from every great race track in the world has been nitted together to create one unbroken grey ribbon of automotive perfection.

Recently, I had the wonderful pleasure of attending a lovely little classic car show here in Bamberg, Germany.
The show was held on the factory grounds of Weyermann, a beer malt maker. Actually in typical German fashion their full name is: Malzfabrik Mich. Weyermann GmbH & Co. KG.
Weyermann makes the malts that beer breweries used to make various flavored beers. They make one of the main ingredients for making beer. And they are at the top of their game. Sold in over 130 countries, their … CONTINUED
