Hamann has extended its catalogue of upgrades for the 5-Series by including the touring. Granted, the front pieces are all a direct swap from the Sedan counterpart, but new sideskirts and rear addons should make those touring owners who want a new body kit happy.
An E91 M3 Touring was never in the cards for this generation of M3s, but that hasn’t stopped wagon fans from undertaking their own custom conversions. We previously featured an M3POST member’s full E91 M3 custom build (both mechanicals and bodywork), but here’s yet another one.

Count me as one of the people who strongly believes that the F10 5-Series comes out of the box with a beautifully sculpted look. The M-Sport and new M5 of course take that sculpted look to the next level.
Now, i’m not against body kits by any stretch, but in my opinion, this new concept from Prior Design takes things in the wrong direction. Their designs rests on the use of the E90/E92 M3 center grill design grafted onto the F10 5-Series bumper with a row of … CONTINUED
The first three G-power M3 GTS have arrived and their engine displacements have been bored to an increase of 10% and rebuilt with low-compression forged pistons. This extra displacement, combined with a specially tuned version of their SK II CS supercharger system, has resulted in 720hp! This represents an increase of 270hp over the factory M3 GTS (450hp). How much faster this catapults the car from the factory figures (4.4 sec 0-100km/h and 305km/h) is not yet known, but will surely be announced in due time.

This is a must action video of the monstrous 700+hp Manhart V8RS 4.4L M3 with the engine transplant from X6M! It’s in German, but when you have sights and sounds like this, words are barely necessary. Just look at the driver’s reaction and you can imagine the fury of this car.

Check out the video inside.
The 1M MotoGP Safety Car was recently unveiled and will be one of the M cars serving as a safety car for the 2011 MotoGP, the world’s premier motorcycling championship.
