Here is a great compilation video of the 1-series M coupe performing its pace car duties at the recently concluded Daytona 24 hours race. The 1M has always looked great even stationary at autoshows, but takes on an even sportier persona when in motion. Check out the video inside.
Autocar UK provides its first drive review of the all new 650i convertible, calling it a positive step forward and a more complete car than its predecessor – in all areas. Here is what they had to say.
Although the new 6-series coupe has already been spotted completely sans camouflage we continue to get prototype glimpses at various colors and configurations.
Just spotted is the new Coupe in Alpine White, with standard body trim, ie. no M-Sport in both 650i and 640i/640d. The model range topping 650i is identified by its dual square exhaust tips and large 19 or 20″ alloy wheels.

But, Jaguar may be ready … CONTINUED

Ok, you cant see that much. Seems like the camera man drives a pretty fast car and the 1M pretty handly outpaces him
Count me in as one of those people who love to ski, so this caught my attention. It looks like BMW is teaming up with K2 to promote the new X3.
