Hyundai has just announced its i20 World Rally Championship car, which wears a never before seen “N” graphic. That N signifies Hyundai’s newly launched performance sub-brand for their production and racing cars.
Not only does N sound like M, but the color scheme is also curiously similar to the BMW M tri-colors.
Did Hyundai choose this letter simply because it’s positioned close to or sounds similar to M? Hyundai says that “N” stands for the Namyang R&D center which developed the i20 rally car and will … CONTINUED
The production F82 M4 Coupe is set to be shown this Thursday, after which we’ll begin to see its (and the F80 M3′s) marketing campaign gain momentum. As with recent new M models, one of the ways we should see the M3 or M4 (or both) get some publicity is in the role of a Safety Car for MotoGP, with which BMW M is a partner. BMW M is currently in its 15th season as the “Official Car of MotoGP” and provides the official … CONTINUED

BIMMERPOST member ddk632 had the honor and privilege of attending the North American debut of the Jeff Koons BMW M3 GT2 Art Car at Art Basel in Miami this week, and figured if there’s any place on Bimmerpost that will appreciate these photos, it’s M3Post!

BIMMERPOST member Kyle Shim recently spotted an M4 Coupe prototype and set off a foot chase while trying to capture video for us. Very entertaining watch, not only because of the great sounds coming from the M4, but because of the intense chase!

BIMMERPOST moderator David visits the Pantheon Museum in Basel, Switzerland.
The building was smaller than I was expecting, but it still had plenty of cool cars (~80 or so) inside. This place would make a great detour on the way into Switzerland. They have a nice restaurant as part of the Museum and garage storage. From what I could tell most people use this hall to store their classic cars. But the “Pantheon” does own a lot of the cars on display. In fact they … CONTINUED

The 2015 Mustang has just been revealed and Ford has revealed that it was benchmarked against the E90/E92 M3 during development. Together with its new independent rear suspension, will the Mustang give the upcoming M4 coupe a run for its money? Or, does it already lag behind the upcoming M3 and M4 by virtue of having been benchmarked against a now discontinued model?
