This is a video released on an official level by BMW with a really nice tour of BMWs stand and technologies at the NAIAS. They basicly go over and show you the main features at the show: the Z4 sDrive 35is, the Concept ActiveE (electric 1-series) and the ActiveHybrid cars including the 7 series and X6. Enjoy!
Check out this M3post member’s ESS supercharged brilliant white M3 which just dyno’d at 600hp / 400tq at the crank! Also must see are the 0-120mph in 10.4 second acceleration videos!
The M1 prototype test car has now been filmed on video. Scroll down to the link after the jump for the directly embedded video on CAR Magazine’s site.
This video is genious. This is a newly released YouTube teaser clip for the upcoming MINI "crossover" SUV. Noting really new is seen in this video, actually compared to the beachcomber concept car you actually see less! But what I love is that they took their now standard yellow psychadelic camoflage masking tape and integrated it into the standard teaser video for the car.
Things have definitly changed 200% from a few years ago in the spyphotos/marketing world. But honestly, this video is genious and I love where BMW/MINI is going with this. Take a look at the video below.

Here are some newly released videos detailing various features of the new F10 BMW 5-Series in motion.
