Confession time: to these eyes the Bangle-era BMWs are looking quite good now. You might agree, you most probably don't, but there it is. That's proper Bangle Beemers too, the more Bangle the better, not the half baked ones. An ordinary E90 3 Series, where BMW toned down the Bangle influence for fear of its biggest seller tanking, now looks bland and forgettable. Compare that to an E60 generation 5 Series, or an original Z4, both launched 15 years ago, and they look fresh and modern in 2018. The E65-era 7 Series still does it for me too, yes - apologies. Now while the E63 6 Series was never top of the 21st century BMW fascinations - unless we're talking about an Indianapolis Red M6 - this particular car has made the big Bangle bruiser a lot more interesting. Because it has the six-speed manual gearbox. And, truth be told, nobody at PH actually knew such a car existed - yes, yes, membership cards to be handed in at the end of the shift. But here it is, a manual, V8 6 Series for sale … [Read more...] about BMW 650i: Spotted

What to you, qualifies as exotic? Today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe BMW comes with ten cylinders, six manually selectable gears, and a to-be-seen-in body, all of which support its place in the pantheon of performance machines. Will its price however, prove a little too exotic? While my opinion about yesterday’s pair of Fiat X1/9s may have been clolored by my uncontrollable afttraction for the model of car, cooler heads thankfully prevailed.

The new Mercedes-AMG GLE63 continues to make its appearance online through a series of spy shots. This time, the upcoming performance sport utility vehicle was spotted up close. The last time we saw the Mercedes-AMG GLE63, it was being towed by a Mercedes-Benz G-Class after running into some mechanical problems while it was undergoing winter testing in Sweden. However, the new spy shots from AutoGuide show the vehicle having a successful test run in a public road. The vehicle remains camouflaged in the pictures, but its few exposed parts give away its key features. The most noticeable styling element of the SUV that hints its AMG DNA is its front radiator grille. Similar to the other cars and SUVs of AMG, the auto carries a Panamericana grille design, which showcases vertical slats. Then, zooming into the black-clad centerpiece of the unit’s nose exposes bulges that resemble the three-pointed star logo of Mercedes. Next, the headlamps and tail lamps appear to have … [Read more...] about Up Close With the Upcoming Mercedes-AMG GLE63 SUV
Customisation is in vogue at the moment, but choice can be seriously confusing. In our new configurator challenge, we’re going to let the CarAdvice team loose on a manufacturer’s website to create their ideal spec of a certain model. For this edition of the Configurator Challenge, we’re building BMW M cars of essentially every flavour. Start your engines, folks. Let us know what you think in the comments, and let us know which cars you’d like to see next! Scott Collie, Journalist There are lots of brilliant BMW M cars out there, and the M2 was very, very tempting, but the new M5 is just too much of a stunner to look past. Also, having read Rob’s review, you’d be mad not to consider the twin-turbo bahn-stormer. Maybe because it’s brand new, or maybe because BMW is gunning for the AMG E63 S, there aren’t many options to be had here. There’s only one engine – a 4.4-litre turbocharged bent-eight making 441kW of power and … [Read more...] about Configurator Challenge: BMW M cars

With 585PS (577hp) and 700Nm (516lb-ft) of torque, the current Mercedes-AMG GT R is a force to be reckoned with. However, the automaker’s performance division is getting ready to launch an even brawnier variant of the impressive GT R. The car was scooped testing at the Nurburgring the other week, and according to the AMG boss, Tobias Moers, who spoke to AutoExpress on the topic, it will be a track-oriented model. “We’re also working a little bit on a GT R… something. It’ll be a bit more race track-oriented. It’s lightened a little bit, but it’s more of a track day version for fun on circuits”, said Moers. “We’re not talking about a competition car – not a GT3 or a GT4, but more a ‘Clubsport’. We’re having a good look at that.” Also read: Mercedes-AMG GT R Black Series Wants To Be The New Lord Of The ‘Ring The more hardcore Mercedes-AMG GT R is expected within the next 12 months.

Taking Matters Into Your Own Hands I’ve always been a fan of fast estates. I might be biased because I live in Germany which is widely touted as the land of estates, but the allure of having enough room to lug half my worldly possessions and get from A to B like the world is going to end is hard to ignore. In the past I’ve had the chance to shoot some fast estates for Speedhunters, the ABT RS6-R and HMS RS700 included, and my close friends know the soft spot I have for this kind of automobile. That’s how I got onto this car lovingly named El Niño, possibly the world’s first and only BMW F11 M5 Touring. My friend Malte of Carbonfiber Dynamics hit me up earlier this year about this project he was working on. The idea was to acquire a grocery-getter F11 5 Series Touring and then set its pants on fire by transplanting the heart and vital organs from an F10 M5 into it with help from the BMW wizards at Aulitzky Tuning. Aulitzky … [Read more...] about F11 M5R Touring: Building What BMW Wouldn’t

The firm has released three images of a disguised car, part of a fleet that has been running "all over the world", but has given no further details about the machine.Autocar has previously revealed that engineers from Mercedes' performance arm are already working on an even harder version of the model, with sources predicting the variant will have in excess of 800bhp from a hybrid V8 powertrain.The official images follow previous spy pictures of a car wearing a fixed rear wing.
