Someone must have gotten lazy at the Nordschleife and didn’t remember to cover up the new nose on the twin-turbocharged V8-powered 2010 BMW X5. In this latest round of spy shots from the folks at KGP, we can clearly see the dramatic, M3-inspired front air dam and big new wheels to match the upgraded styling. This marks the second application for the twin-turbo eight cylinder which debuted in the BMW X6, and in the X5 it will be making 408 HP and providing … CONTINUED

Its summer time and now the BMW has moved from winter testing to the ring for some good ole fashioned track testing. The new X1 has already been confirmed to be produced in Europe (Leipzig) rather then the traditional home of BMW SAVs (Spartanburg) and so most guesses are on this car being an uber eco-friendly vehicle using engines in the 4-cylinder flavor. The emphasis should be on people moving, european style, rather then speed and sport. Expect a very mainstream car out of BMW with this model.

MotorAuthority has been … CONTINUED

The BMW group is set to invest a total of one billion US dollars over four years in the American market. The resources will be channelled towards a new adminstrative and training centre in New Jersey, increasing the sales network and broadening production in the Spartanburg facilities.

These are all strategies that should take advantage of the current weak dollar compared to the euro. Currently the BMW factory in South Carolina assembles about 160,000 vehicles a year, but with the new investment estimates are … CONTINUED

In March BMW announced that it would establish a new research division called Project i, whose task will be to develop a number of solutions for a vehicle designed for congested city motoring. The goal of Project i was never to exclusively develop one type of vehicle or another, but to come up with a range of technologies BMW could introduce across its fleet or even under a rumored fourth brand (the first three being BMW, Mini and Rolls-Royce).

Project i will run independently … CONTINUED

These are the first engine shots of that mysterious BMW X5
prototype which started all those X5M rumors. Although the rather
roughly finished engine bay doesnt give away the cylinder count and
the displacement, it looks to us that this prototype is twin-
turbocharged. The dual air-intake treatment looks similar to the
ducting on BMWs 3.0-liter twin-turbo engine. Given all of this X5
prototypes high-octane modifications, were assuming this is a larger
displacement engine, perhaps even a twin-turbo V8. Regardless of the
specifics, were just glad to finally see a little deeper inside this
beefy X5 prototype to get … CONTINUED

FAST: G-POWER M6 HURRICANE Convertible with 635hp
One of the worlds fastest and most powerful convertibles is made by G-POWER. 635hp and 635 Nm torque; these are the attributes of the latest G-POWER development for the BMW M6.

These are the latest rendering by Huckfeldt of what he thinks the upcoming X1 and X3 redesign could be. These seem to be off-base IMO as they are not inline with BMWs current styling trend
