BMW M-Power collects impressions on the M5 Concept from Shanghai

The M-Power division of the Bavarians from BMW recently released a video promoting the BMW M5 Concept earlier revealed at the Shanghai Auto Show. The M5 Concept is not the production-ready version of the upcoming BMW M5 F10 as there are still some modifications to be made but largely the concept revealed in China reflects the appearance of the next-generation M5.

The new BMW M5 F10 is scheduled to enter the production later this year while in about one month, the Germans will officially unveil the series version of the new M5, a model based on the current 5 Series F10 generation.

They also did a comparison between the BMW E92 M3 ZCP DCT and the smallest M model in the range, of course, the new 1 Series M Coupe. I don’t know if you will believe but the new BMW 1 Series M Coupe actually managed to get a better time on the Hockenheim circuit.

If we already knew how the future BMW M5 F10 will look at the exterior, we got no interior shots to delight our sight, until now, mainly due to the fact that the prototype benefited from tinted windows.

BMW DesignworksUSA extends and opens a new center in Shanghai

BMW recently announced through a press release that the BMW Group’s subsidiary DesignworksUSA plans to open a new design studio in Shanghai, China. DesignworkUSA is a design consultancy based in California and takes care of complex design projects. This decision is taken mainly due to the increasing trend of the Chinese market, a trend that can be seen with the naked eye by any of us.

The new studio in Shanghai is scheduled to be launched in the second half of this year and will join the already existent design studios in Singapore, Los Angeles and Munich.

Headers and what they do for your car

Exhaust headers are the first component in the exhaust system of a car. Typically, headers are designed using circular steel tubes that bend into a single outlet. Depending on the vehicle’s number of exhaust valves, headers come in a variety of shapes and sizes that are specifically designed to remove exhaust from the vehicle. From the headers, exhaust is passed though the catalytic converter and then out of the muffler to allow for sufficient exhaust flow.

Correct header design can help improve the performance of an engine by reducing the amount of exhaust back-pressure that is created by combustion. The main purpose of the exhaust header is to quickly and efficiently remove exhaust waste that would prevent a proper air/fuel mixture in the pistons. Each piston gets its own exhaust pipe that is of equal length with the others. These pipes are then connected by a bigger pipe called a collector. With a collector, exhaust is sure to pass safely out of the engine and not cause back pressure.

First image with the M Sport package for the new BMW 6 Series Coupe (F12)

Thanks to a Dutch newspaper, NRC Handelsblad more exactly, we get the opportunity to see how the BMW 6 Series Coupe (F12) fitted with the M Sport package will look like. It’s true that we got a glimpse about three weeks ago when we have been delivered some spy photos with the prototype in question, but this time we know that we see an official image.

At that time, we were told that the model being tested it’s not benefiting from all the components available, thus, we can get a complete idea on the M Sport package now.

BMW will reveal the Z4 sDrive28i at New York

The Bavarians officially announced that the current BMW Z4 E89 will get a new propeller in range benefiting from TwinPower Turbo. The four-cylinder engine develops 245 horsepower, has a 2.0-liter displacement and it is already available in the engine range of the X1 SUV. A downsizing trend can be seen as the new BMW Z4 sDrive28i comes to replace the 3.0-liter six-cylinder unit that offers 258 horsepower.

From the list of features available for the new German four-cylinder unit we can note the Start/Stop system that helps the model to obtain a better fuel consumption but also the eight-speed automatic gearbox that handles the power.
