The F10 M5 concept was officially unveiled online today [official photos/video/info] to much excitement and anticipation. The F10 M5 represents the successor to the now fabled E60 M5, which began production in 2005 and ended last year. The F10 M5 concept’s official press release photos reminded us much of the E60 M5 concept’s debut photos. We’ve posted up some comparison photos below.
Not much technical info or specs have been released so far for the F10 M5, but what we do know is that the engine will … CONTINUED
Today marks the public release of the all new BMW Concept M5 ahead of its formal debut in Shanghai.
Now as you may have quickly noticed, the word ‘concept’ sits between BMW and M5, meaning this car is not yet the full production vehicle. In typical BMW M fashion, first a “concept” version of the car is rolled out to the public, in order to showcase what the car will look like, painted in stunning Chrome Shadow. After this car has been shown to the world, … CONTINUED
The exciting lightweight M3 sedan concept which we were given a preview at the special M event in Garching, Munich (photos and info here) last week has now been spotted in testing for the first time!
The lightweight M3 will slot in between the standard M3 and the M3 GTS in terms of weight and power. Some of the weight reduction may come in the form of CFRP hood and seats. If you look carefully at the photos, it appears that the driver seat in the test … CONTINUED
Once a year BMW holds a “Technology Day”, a showcase of new technology and developments BMW has recently introduced, is about to introduce, or is looking into to make cars better. This year’s press release on the matter has quite some interesting bits about BMW’s technology, and one of the hottest things they mention is the progress they made in processing CFRP, short for carbon fiber reinforced plastic. The developments made for the BMW i models will be used across the BMW group sooner or later.

The first race appearance at the Nürburgring-Nordschleife (DE) in 2011 turned out to be a great success for Team BMW Motorsport: The no. 42 BMW M3 GT with Jörg Müller (DE), Augusto Farfus (BR) and Uwe Alzen (DE) at the wheel crossed the line as the winner in the first round of the VLN Endurance Championship. The second BMW M3 GT (no. 43), driven by Andy Priaulx (GB), Dirk Müller (DE) and Dirk Werner (DE), took the chequered flag in second, 51 seconds behind the sister … CONTINUED
What a treat. While covering the M Event in Germany today, Jason and Southlight were invited to tour the BMW M facility, including underground into BMW M’s garage. No not the employee parking garage– THE GARAGE. Yes, the garage where BMW M stores a copy of every single M car ever made. Many of them you or I have never seen or heard of before. Cars that we may have thought about or dreamed about, but never materialized.
The event itself was a special BMW M Press … CONTINUED
Ok more LIVE coverage from the BMW M event in Germany! Moving on from the M3 Pick-up, BMW has now shown off a new M3 concept car based on the E90 M3 Sedan. This particular concept is destined for the recently announced Nurburgring M Festival later in the year.
The main idea behind this concept is lightweight. The sedan is stripped out, but BMW has not given us any details yet on what the car’s weight is or other specifics. They did say that the concept is … CONTINUED

Is it? Is it not? What is it? Whose is it? April’s Fool’s? Well, now it looks like BMW has officially recognized the beast, and taken back the covers from this skunkworks project.
Power is developed from the same 4.0-litre V8 developing its 414bhp at 8300rpm and 295lb ft at 3900rpm via the standard 6-speed gearbox.
In order to accomidate the new trunk and gate, substantial modifications had to be made to the rear suspension. The M3 pick-up still weighs in 50kg under the M3 convertible’s weight. … CONTINUED
