BMW releases a new commercial focusing on the mantra for some of the latest current M models (F10 M5, 1M Coupe) and certainly for future models – high performance with efficient dynamics. Being able to have one’s cake and eat it too.
Their official message: Efficient dynamics, high performance, fuel efficiency; you can have it all when you drive a BMW M. Some people say it’s having your cake and eating it too. We say, it’s The Ultimate Driving Machine
Here’s a first. Ever wonder how the M3 would look with a 1M style front? Well it’s now been done. LTBMW has fitted this E92 M3 coupe with a front bumper in the style of the 1M coupe, complete with functional air curtain vents!
The 2012 M6 convertible (F12) is big, it’s heavy, and it’s for showing off. But, courtesy of the usual magic from BMW M GmbH, it does not feel as big, heavy, or just for showing off. What it is is a super high performing GT convertible and a hell of a looker.
We spent two days this week in Santa Barbara, California to check out and test drive the all new 2012 BMW M6 and 6 Series Gran Coupe (see our previous review). After over 100 miles of highways, backroads, and mountain twisties, here were our impressions.

We can finally confirm that the next generation M3 (F80 / F82) will be powered by an inline 6 cylinder engine. We spoke to the President of BMW North America, Mr. Ludwig Willisch, at the ongoing M6 convertible / 6 Gran Coupe US press launch and he has officially confirmed that the next generation M3′s engine will indeed feature an inline 6 layout and not a V6.
Until now, there has been no official confirmation (nor denial) from BMW on whether the F80 sedan and F82 coupe’s motor would feature an I6 or rumored V6 configuration (although it’s been all but a foregone conclusion that it will utilize forced induction by way of turbos).
Mr. Willisch added that a V6 configuration was previously considered (including whether a motor … CONTINUED
Check out some looks from the BMW M Driving Experience at the Monza Circuit in Italy, featuring the latest and greatest from BMW M GmbH – the F10 M5, F12 M6, M3, X5M and X6M.
The all new 2013 M6 coupe (F13) will take on safety car duties for MotoGP this season, becoming the latest BMW M model to do so after the M5 and 1M Safety Cars.
The MotoGP M6 safety car will debut at the 24 Hour Nurburgring race this weekend and will lead the M Festival M Corso parade event.
The first half of the MotoGP race season will continue seeing the use of the F10 M5 and 1M safety cars, but the F13 M6 coupe safety car will replace the 1M halfway through the race season. Expect the M6 safety car to receive similar modifications as the M5 and 1M – siren, Akrapovic exhaust system (whose name is seen on the M6 below) and aerodynamic enhancements (front carbon … CONTINUED
