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. But the 1M coupe won’t be serving its safety duties in regular form. It has been gussied up, sporting an Akrapovic exhaust, large rear wing, large M striping, black wheels, black exhaust tips, vented hood, black grilles, and a front spoiler chin, some of which we hope will become available accessories.
We’ve also posted a bonus shot (courtesy of Autogespot) of the 1M MotoGP safety car with an S1000RR, carbon edition (180hp, tinted windshield, Akropovic titanium exhaust and lots of carbon fiber).
The Alpina B6 based on the all new 2012 F13 coupe is imagined in even more detail in this stunning rear-view render by philip.
Here are some pics of the Doerr / Avotre 1-series track car from Hockenheim this past weekend. Unfortunately the car retired early due to losing 4 of its wheel bolts off its M3 spec wheels.
Here are the first pics of the Netherlands-only limited edition Frozen Gray M3 Coupe Track Edition, courtesy of Autogespot. The track edition’s special bits include:

Well folks, we’re all done here at the 2011 Geneva auto show and hope you enjoyed the coverage as much as we enjoyed sharing it with our community. Geneva is always an exciting show because of all shows, it’s arguably the largest in the world and always features an unrivaled number of exotics and tuning companies on display. Geneva is also traditionally one of the most important shows for BMW due to its proximity to BMW’s home market and prominence among the auto show circuit events.
This year again featured several debuts of BMW models, packages, and technologies, as well as plenty of aftermarket tuner models. As a show wrap-up, we’ve summarized our coverage below, enjoy!
Making its first official public appearance is the full Hamann F10 5-series. The Hamann F10 aero kit seen on this model includes:
* HAMANN FRONT BUMPER UNIT (Including 4 LED-daytime running lights) – Part No. 10 010 105
* HAMANN REAR SPOILER SMALL – Part No. 10 010 131
* HAMANN SIDE SKIRTS
* HAMANN REAR CENTER PANEL (w/ cut out for HAMANN 4 tailpipe rear muffler)
* HAMANN ROOF SPOILER
* BMW F10 whiteline tail lights (to which Hamann has applied a light smoke tint)
The F10 5-series appears to be the darling of the BMW tuners this year at Geneva. Kelleners Sport brought only one car to the show – their Kelleners 520d M-sport. At a glance, Kellener’s F10 program features:
· Enhanced performance for petrol and diesel engines
· Comprehensive aerodynamics package creates a sporty appearance
· 20-inch alloy wheels in “Hamburg” and “Berlin” designs
· Interior enhanced with added accessories
Kelleners Sport engineers have unleashed around 20 per cent more engine power for petrol and diesel models. The 520d (the car on display at Geneva) now reaches 218 hp (160 kW), instead of the standard 184 hp (135kW), and maximum torque reaches 450 instead of 380 Newton metres. The performance of the 535i jumps from 306 hp (225 kW) to 367 hp … CONTINUED
Renowned BMW tuning house Alpina has brought its latest F10/F11 creations to the Geneva auto show. Both the Alpina F10 sedan and F11 touring boast 507hp / 700Nm torque from the 4.4L V8 twin-turbo motor, mated to a ZF 8 peed sport automatic transmission (“Switch-tronic”). 0-100kmh (62 mph) is accomplished in 4.7 seconds for the F10 B5 and 4.8 seconds for the F11 B5.
The AC Schnitzer 99d generates only 99g/km CO2 – that’s less than any standard BMW vehicle available at present.
And despite this, driving pleasure is guaranteed thanks to 190 HP / 140 kW. The 99d accelerates from 0 – 100 in an electrifying 6.9 s and has a top speed of 235 km/h – a vehicle with all the sporting genes, in fact a true AC Schnitzer. And with a fuel consumption of just 3.8 litres diesel per 100 km.
So how does this Concept Car by AC Schnitzer manage to achieve such low figures?
AC Schnitzer calls the combination of features Efficient Performance.
“Pleasure is the driving force!“ That applies not only to the BMW engineers but also – and in particular – to the tuning specialists at … CONTINUED
