Christophe Jourd’hui, a graduate from the International School of Design (ISD) (France) and Benjamin Baron, a fellow ISD student who spent 8 months interning at BMW DesignWorks Munich, have put together this design thesis featuring what they call the MZ8 Concept.
Jourd’hui says that the MZ8 design “commemorates the 40 years of Motorsport department… I decide to work on a spyder in honor of the Z8 and 8 series. Modern interpretation of the Motorsport philosophy.”
Unlike many unofficial BMW concept designs we’ve seen in the past, this one is restrained in comparison and could even be credible as an official concept design. Check out the images and video below and tell us if you agree.
BMW fans have been starved for a halo supercar and something like this … CONTINUED
Although the comparison is unexpected, its very well done! And as expected our M135i continues to steamroll and draw up the accolades from the motoring press.
Some beautiful pics from the most recent Airstrip Attack event held on April 6-7, 2013.

BMW Japan has announced the availability of 300 limited edition 5 Series “Exclusive Sport” models.
There’s actually not much exclusive about these models other than the packaging together of already existing options/packages and BMW Individual options.
The 5 Series sedan or touring can both be ordered in the Exclusive Sport model, and in either 523i (2.0L) or 523d (2.0L diesel). These models all feature the M Sport package (exterior aero kit, steering wheel, seats, and wheels).
The interior features Individual Cinnamon Brown leather with Individual Black Piano trim, upgraded audio and is finished off with a Exclusive Sport badge.
The cars can be ordered in white or Individual Carbon Black and retails at from ¥ 7,190,000 – ¥ 7,490,000, which equals approximately $72,200 – $75,200 USD.
Will we be seeing the F32 4 Series coupe make its public debut at the 2013 Shanghai auto show in just over a week?
These photos are purported to be production stage 4 Series coupes at the airport waiting to be loaded for a plane to Shanghai. They may look like they are wearing the usual pre-production prototype camouflage, but per insider Scott26, the camouflage is just protective vinyl for the trip.
Although the production 4 Series coupe has recently been spotted completely revealed [pics below], we have not yet seen the M Sport version (which is represented by the Estoril Blue 4 Series seen below).
The 2013 Shanghai auto show begins on April 20th. Keep your fingers crossed

BMW today launched the Electronaut Effect, a new digital tool that gives consumers access to key aggregated data about the range, cost savings and positive environmental impact that actual BMW ActiveE drivers – called “Electronauts” – are experiencing across the country. This unfiltered information, updated weekly, will help inform consumers’ decision about purchasing an electric vehicle.
The Electronaut Effect at www.bmwusa.com/ElectronautEffect features aggregate car data for the 700 BMW ActiveEs – the first fully-electric BMWs – and their drivers, participating in the BMW ActiveE Field Trial that began January 2012. This streamlined data is presented in three basic categories: Range (i.e., most miles driven in one day), Savings (i.e., total money saved), and Environment (i.e., gallons of gas not used).
As of today, Electronauts have driven approximately … CONTINUED
BIMMERPOST once again sponsored the most recent Airstrip Attack taking place on 4/6-4/7, a two day runway shootout race event held at the Coalinga Municipal Airport in Coalinga, California.
This race features a Gintani Stage 2 M3 vs a Lamborghini Gallardo LP560 with Larini Exhaust.
An M3POST member shares with us his recent experience at the 2 Day BMW M Driving School at BMW’s facilities in South Carolina. For our member, the the experience was nothing short of amazing and ranks up there on his automotive “bucket list” along side his European Delivery/Nurburgring adventure a few months ago.
He shares his entire experience and review with us inside in this excellent journal.
