Italian tuner Romeo Ferraris has announced its tuning program for the F10 M5.
Featuring a ECU software tune and sports exhaust system, it pushes the M5 to 657 PS (648 hp) and 790 Nm (583 lb-ft) torque. That’s +97 PS (96 hp) and 110 Nm (81 lb-ft) increase over the factory M5 power figures.
The sports exhaust system alone (featured in the video below) is claimed to provide a +21 hp and +30 Nm of torque gain.
The 2014 M3 (F80) prototype which was spotted in Los Angeles this past weekend has made its way into the California Mojave Desert’s Death Valley for high temperature testing.
With high temperature testing always comes the removal of some front end camouflage, necessary to increase the prototypes’ air intake and cooling; which makes us the indirect beneficiaries of ever better looks at an exposed front end.
Yesterday’s F80 M3 spy pics (some copied below) gave us the best idea yet of the lines and shape of the front … CONTINUED
The F80 M3 sedan is coming together visually bit by bit with each new sighting of the development mules, and it’s looking sportier by the spotting.
We recently brought you the first look at the F80 M3 hood bulge, and now we share with you the first glimpse of the F80 M3′s front end styling, which will feature an aggressive design much like the 2013 M6′s very attractive front fascia, with a pinch of 1M styling thrown in.
Although still covered in a cloth covering, the shapes and … CONTINUED
Although it’s a powerful beast, it’s clear that a stock F10 M5 is no match for the Ferrari 458 on the track. But, how about a tuned M5 with 640hp? The M5 is tuned by PP-Performance to 640HP and 780 NM torque. Goes from 0-100kmh in 3.9 seconds and 310kmh top speed.
Check out the results from this comparison video of the M5 vs Ferrari at the Yas Marina track in Abu Dhabi.
The 2014 BMW F80 M3 and M6 Gran Coupe have landed stateside, with the first spotting coming in Los Angeles!
We have added more photos of the first F82 M4 Coupe prototype spotted last week. Full gallery inside.
We have posted even more photos of the latest 2014 M3 (F80) sedan prototype to be spotted, which shows a more aggressive hood with power dome/bulge.
Some nice driving footage of a Sakhir Orange M5 F10.
The video has been post-processed, making Sakhir Orange look overly red, but for an accurate look at Sakhir Orange on the M5, see the first set of pics @ http://f10.m5post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=706776
We’ve just spied this afternoon this F80 M3 sedan prototype showing a power dome / hood bulge for the first time. The M3 may have now entered the FEP (Final Evaluation Phase) stage of testing. Until now some M enthusiasts have been disappointed to see the lack of a power dome on previous prototypes, but this mule confirms that the F80 M3 and F82 M4 will feature an aggressively shaped hood.
The rest of the camouflage remains as concealing as on prior mules. As seen clearly, the … CONTINUED
Here are some renders put together by site member E92Alpine328i (Jerry).
M4 COUPE (F82)
The F82 M4 coupe render will prove to be the more accurate of the two. Most accurate is the M6 style bumper, which BMW insider Scott26 has recently said (and sketched) to be the styling to expect for the M4 coupe. The F32 4 Series coupe and F82 M4 coupe are expected to feature similar headlights to the F30 3 series, but should be sleeker/slimmer. Their kidney grilles will be also be … CONTINUED
It’s been a busy few testing days for BMW at the Nurburgring and we’ve spotted the M6 Gran Coupe continuing its testing, just days after BMW acknowledged that the flagship M model will be coming next year. It will likely arrive as a 2014 model year and see its auto show debut at the 2013 NAIAS in Detroit or the 2013 Geneva show. Expect the first details of the car to be announced online by the end of this year.
The M6 Gran Coupe will be powered … CONTINUED
