Did you know that the BMW 3 Series Touring had its origins in a wrecked E30 3 Series sedan? BMW engineer Max Reisböck created what became the prototype for the first 3 Series Touring based off his desire for a larger and roomier car, by way of a $14,000 budget, a friend’s garage, and a wrecked E30 sedan.

The story about the invention of the BMW 3 Series Touring and the beginning of the lifestyle touring. Engineer Max Reisböck wanted to go on vacation with his family, but in the mid 80′s regular BMW’s were too small for his luggage. That’s why he invented the BMW Touring out of a wrecked 3 Series Sedan. Finally, the board of BMW took over his idea.

The reveal of the all new 2014 BMW X5 (F15) is imminent, but testing continues on the F15 X5 M.

Testing on the F15 X5 M began last year [first sighting], but current mules have now dropped much camouflage. What’s revealed are the expected signature M components – huge front air intakes, aggressive sideskirts and rear diffuser, blue M brakes, and cross drilled rotors (the first for any X5 model). We also get a better look at the quad exhaust pipes which, unlike the current X5 M, feature a new angled design (like we’ve seen on the F82 M4 prototypes).

The F15 X5 is expected to weigh less than the current E70 X5 and ride on a modified version of the F10 5 series chassis. As for … CONTINUED

Just as there’s a sound engineering department at BMW, it’s no surprise then that there exists a dedicated haptics engineering department. The video below provides some insight into haptics development at BMW.

Driver of the M6 Coupe competing in the 2013 One Lap of America provides an update from the competition.

The 2013 One Lap of America got underway at 8:30 this morning with the traditional Wet Skid Pad event at Tire Rack’s Headquarters in South Bend, Indiana. Usually we’re greeted with cool temperatures and occasional showers, but for a change we had bright sunny skies and a large crowd was on hand to watch the competition unfold. This particular test requires each competitor to drive two laps of the 200ft wet skid pad in a clockwise direction followed by a further two laps in an anticlockwise direction, with the your result determined by the combined G’s of the two runs.

Just days ahead of the start of the new DTM season, BMW Team Schnitzer driver Bruno Spengler (CA) already has his first race at the Hockenheimring (DE) under his belt – although it did come at the wheel of a somewhat alien car to the Canadian. BMW Motorsport invited the reigning DTM champion and 1989 winner Roberto Ravaglia (IT) to a very special “Generation Game”.

Both drivers brought with them the cars with which they won their DTM titles. Spengler triumphed last season with the current BMW M3 DTM, while Ravaglia was crowned DTM Champion at the wheel of the BMW M3 in 1989. However, it was all change in Hockenheim. Ravaglia climbed into the driver’s seat of the BMW M3 DTM, which was adorned with … CONTINUED
