Spotted during testing on the Nurburgring today was the BMW M1 test mule! This test mule doesnt wear the more advanced prototype M1 body as we posted earlier, but is out testing powertrain, chassis, suspension, and handling properties.

We bring you the worlds first video of the F12 6-series coupe in live action. Seeing the test mule in a natural environment among other cars puts into focus the sleekness and well-proportioned design of the F12 so far.
Watch this video and you’ll easily see why the E30 M3 is universally revered by BMW enthisiasts worldwide. The action and sound coming from these cars is truly inspirational.

Specifically targeted towards the Chinese market, the all new F10 5-Series now comes in a Long Wheel Base version, dubbed the Li. Not only is this car designed and marketed towards the Chinese buyer, but the car will actually be produced in a new facility in China as well.
Although not revealing much more that’s new, the 2012/2013 F30 3-series sedan test mules continue their testing around Munich, Germany and spy photographers continue their pursuit and recording. We hope to see the F30 lose some of its camoflage suit soon. Video courtesy of spyshots.nl.
