The BMW M235i coupe continues testing on the Nurburgring, this time in Valencia Orange. While this prototype remains in the same level of camouflage as previously sighted prototypes, it does give us a glimpse at the M235i’s front end design.
What the M235i reveals through the heavy front end camo are large air intake vents with fins like those featured on the M6 and spied on the upcoming M3/M4. You can also see the bottom of the bumper’s splitters poking out below the camouflage. These seem to resemble those on the M135i hatchback. Taken together, what we may see once the camouflage is revealed is a blend of the M135i and M6 front bumper styling, as previewed in the render below (courtesy of Topspeed).

These are the questions we had to ask ourselves at IND when Felix’s amazing Dakar Yellow BMW Individual M3 arrived at our facility. Although we have all seen photos of this M3 before, and even provided many of the parts already on the car, my heart skipped a beat when this car rolled off of our car transport. Felix is a man of excellent taste, and has already created one of the … CONTINUED

The story about the invention of the BMW 3 Series Touring and the beginning of the lifestyle touring. Engineer Max Reisböck wanted to go on vacation with his family, but in the mid 80′s regular BMW’s were too small for his luggage.
