BMW is once again on top of the world, overthrowing Audi and other competitors with a little help from the BMW X1 model which had it’s debut at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, and became the first car in the small premium SUV market.
We talked many times about the Performance line developed by Germans at BMW, even we were talking about the 1 Series model, 3 Series or about the BMW’s X6 SUV. Now, BMW put all them together in a video in order to show us what the Performance version of the models told below are capable to come with.
What is BMW Performance? BMW Performance is characterized by the Bavarians as “passion means no compromise”. BMW Performance offers great accessories from aerodynamic components to the interior. This BMW Performance accessories range is dedicated to the real car lovers.
When two people talk about the G-Power M5 Hurricane RS model, after a moment or two, one or the other will surely bring into discussion the fact that the model was the fastest sedan in the world, by topping 227 mph (228.4 mph to be more precise) and all that took place in the year 2008. Fast forward a couple of years and we’re talking about a new world record from the same car.
BMW seems to be on a roll with the releases of limited or special edition models. After just releasing the M3 Frozen Edition in South Africa, now it is time for the People’s Republic of China to celebrate BMW’s 25th anniversary of the M 3 Series. And since it’s the year of the tiger in China, what name could be more fiting than the big cat itself?
Some interesting rumors have appeared, presumably from the mouth of Dr Klaus Draeger himself, the BMW chief of product development. You see, rumor has it that the Paris Motor Show will be hosting the new generation of the BMW 6 Series. And the icing on the cake is that the 6 Series may be having a companion there…
The Russian tuners from Met-R revealed on their official website new photos with their creation, BMW X6 Interceptor. This time people from Met-R offered us more than renderings, you can see the photo gallery at the end of this post. This tuning kit was created by Zaur Khalilov and people from Met-R decided to transform the ideas into a real tuning kit. Thus, the X6 received a new front bumper with air intakes and fog lights were mounted also in the front bumper.
The Russian tuners created also a version of this tuning kit that received more carbon fiber, but for now, we don’t have any real photos for this version, but you can see some renderings, a video and read more here.
People at BMW revealed some time ago the results of some test regarding the Mini E electric model. You may ask me what I’m talking about over here. Well, BMW decided to give a number of more than 500 Mini E units to different people across U.S., Germany and England, and to collect the opinions and complaints.
The electric model received very positive feedback from the people that were given, Mini E met the most of the requirements of usual people. In figures, 66% of people that participated at this test said that the electric model offered the same features as a conventional one, using an internal combustion engine while 90% of the people said that Mini E managed to have an enough big autonomy for their daily needs.
The winter season can be a royal pain, especially if the snow keeps falling and piling up, making it hard to get to and from work and generally everywhere without a bit of help. After all, you need to be prepared if you don’t want to get stuck somewhere with your car right? The obvious solution would be to use winter tires for your BMW, but this winter chances are that you will use something different. Okay, we’re still talking about winter tires, but this time from BMW.
Germans at BMW revealed an in-car video for the smallest M ever built, the BMW 1 Series M Coupe. We presented you recently the first video posted by people at BMW for the 1 Series M Coupe. The video was showing the M model on the circuit while the head of BMW’s M Division, Kay Segler, was confirming that the model is coming soon. You can read more here.
The dream of driving a BMW M model is close to become reality, BMW developing the smallest and cheapest M division model, being affordable for more and more people. The circuit where the M model is running is the Ascari Race Track in Spain.
BMW always has new ideas and more and more reasons to unveil limited or special editions of it’s best selling models. Now, it is the Republic of South Africa’s turn to enjoy the spotlight (again, because last month the 3 Series Dynamic Edition was launched), as it will be the home of the latest BMW M3 Frozen Edition. The country was chosen because BMW will have clocked 25 years of presence there and that needs to be celebrated accordingly.
