In a recent interview (read at http://f80.bimmerpost.com/forums/sho…d.php?t=915648) with the M division chief engineer, Albert Biermann, the article lists various performance characteristics of the car.

The speed and fuel consumption numbers are metric based in the article and when they are converted to the English system they come out 26 MPG and a 0-60 time of 4.3 seconds.

While the term (est) is thrown in next to them, the fact the numbers come from the head man means to me they are reasonably accurate.

BMW recently announced the availability of several new BMW Individual frozen (matte) colors for the M5 and M6, including Frozen Black metallic, Frozen Blue metallic, Frozen Red metallic and Frozen Brilliant White metallic.

Exclusive to the M6 (all variants) however, is the addition of Frozen Cashmere Silver metallic, which we show you for the first time from the floor of the 2013 LA Auto Show. Based on our first look, we found it to be even more attractive than Frozen Silver.

See our other 2013 … CONTINUED

The BMW M4 Concept has been making the rounds at many venues, beginning with its debut at the Pebble Beach week three months ago.

It’s now making its auto show premiere at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, the only auto show that it will be making an appearance. That’s because the next major auto show – the 2014 Detroit NAIAS in January will feature the dual world premieres of the production 2014 M3 (F80) and 2014 M4 (F82).

What will the production models bring? The M4 … CONTINUED

Picked up German magazine Sport Auto today. It features an interview with BMW M development chief Albert Biermann and a ride in the M4 with Biermann driving.

This is my translation of the major parts of this article. My apologies for bad sentences or missed meanings (I have tried my best from a hotel room after a long day at work…):

Have a listen at the F80 M3 with its bi-turbo s55 inline 6 cylinder engine and exhaust during a cold start.

This M3 sounds a bit ‘off’, particularly during idle, so perhaps the exhaust is still being tuned on this car or the recording device has distorted the actual sound. The M3/M4 has sounded better in previous videos (reposted below).

CAR Magazine pits the F10 M5 (standard, non-competition) against the Audi RS6 Avant.

On paper, the RS6 is a rocket. But consider this: the true test of a great driver

Some sites have been reporting the above image as a leaked official photo, but as you can see below, it’s simply a photoshopped image of an official wallpaper image of the 435i Convertible (source) using styling elements from the M4 Concept. Hence the oddly angled front wheel.

The real M4 convertible should not be much different than the photoshopped image however, as it will share exterior styling with the production M4 Coupe, which will adopt its styling from the M4 Concept.

Contender: BMW 5 Series
By: Jonny Lieberman

We Like: Abusive amounts of power result in skull-cracking acceleration.

We Don’t Like: Hefty, complex, and surprisingly numb.

We were quite excited to get our hands on the updated 528i and the new 535d. We’d had a not-very-loved long-term 528i, and hoped the refresh would fix some of what we didn’t like (i.e., stop/start). And we’re cuckoo for diesels. Sad to say, BMW couldn’t get us either car in time for Car of the Year. It did, however, happen to … CONTINUED
