The German specialists from Hamann decided to release details on their new tuning package specially developed for the Touring version of the current 5 Series generation. If few months ago, the sedan version received a styling package from the Germans, this time, the Touring version, codenamed F11, gets few aesthetic tweaks.
The German specialists from Lumma Design decided to release details on a new styling package specially prepared for the previous generation 6 Series Convertible (E64). Even if the new BMW 6 Series recently debuted, Lumma Design is not rushing to the new generation and tries its best for the old 6 Series Convertible.
This package brings nothing but few aesthetic tweaks able to give a fresh air and make the German model more attractive. The aerodynamic kit includes front and rear bumpers, a quad-pipe exhaust system, carbon fiber side mirrors, 21-inch alloy wheels fitted with 255/30R21 and 295/25R21 tires.
BMW celebrates the 75th anniversary of 328, a sporty two-seater vehicle designed by Rudolf Schleicher and Fritz Fiedler back in the early 1930s. BMW 328 had been presented to the audience at the International Eifel Race which took place at the famous Nurburgring track on June 14, 1936.
The German sport model had been produced in a limited series of about 450 unit and according to the official press release, only around 200 vehicles are existing anymore these days. In terms of performance, the German roadster is powered by a 2.0-liter six-cylinder engine producing around 80 horsepower. Not very much, indeed, but considering that it weights just 780 kilograms thanks to a lightweight structure, every pony makes its presence felt.
BMW continues promoting the new M5 F10 with a new video revealing the M version of the current 5 Series being tested at the Miramas track in the south of France. At first, I hoped that the prototypes in the video dropped the camouflage wear but sadly some parts of the aerodynamic package are still covered.
However, the video featuring BMW’s new M model wants to underline the performance of the vehicle on the track. Under the bonnet, the new BMW M5 F10 fits a 4.4-liter twin-turbo engine developing around 590 horsepower together with a special DCT seven-speed gearbox from the M division.
The Bavarians from BMW issued a press release announcing the opening of the BMW Direct Store, their first official shop on eBay UK, a place from where you can buy components and accessories using the renowned online auction and shopping website, eBay.
It seems that the Bavarians from BMW are planning to introduce a refreshed version of the current 7 Series (F01), a facelift model not a new generation but however a lot of things changed in the last few years. thus, a 7 Series with some present technology and improvements has its place in the current range.
At the exterior, the facelift version of German flagship gets some revised optical blocks with LED lights, an expectable improvement considering that we talk about a 2012 model, a new set of alloy wheels and also revised front and rear bumpers should be on the list.
The Germans from BMW and Mercedes are not battling only on the German market, there is a very tight race also in the U.S. and it seems that BMW is ahead in terms of sales. More exactly, the Bavarians announced that they’ve taken the lead in April on the American market defeating Mercedes by only 29 units.
BMW managed to sell 71,447 units last month and ranked first in the premium segment sales ranking. Models such as the new BMW 5 Series (F10) and the new X3 (F25) helped the Germans to obtain an increase of 8,9% and in the same time the leadership in one of the most important markets for their premium models.
Here is a set of new spy photos with the upcoming M6 generation, codenamed F12, a model scheduled to be revealed sometime this year. The thick layer of camouflage tells us that the model is still under serious testing and we have to wait a little bit more to see the model ready for debut.
The difference between BMW’s 6 Series and M6 is of course, the M, which in this situation means that there should be some extra horsepower under the bonnet but also few M components at the exterior and interior.
There are just three units of the ItalDesign Nazca available and one of them is put on sale, thus, if you waited a long time for this then this is your chance to get one of these. Of course, being a very rare model, the 1993 BMW ItalDesign Nazca is priced at €725,000 which might be a setback for some potential buyers.
On the aesthetic part, there are not too many to say, you can make an idea by looking at the photo gallery. However, it’s an eighteen-year old model and if there is someone interested to spend around $1 million for the German model it means that it looks fine.
BMW released the first official teaser with the new BMW 1 Series F20, a model with one origin but however two originals, as the new motto claims. As you can see, the teaser photo presents two covered vehicles, two models with different personalities, one artistic and one dynamic.
