BMW Sold 12K M2 Coupe In 2017, Celebrates With A Special Black Shadow Edition

BMW is particularly proud of the BMW M2 last year. In all, the German automaker said it has pushed out 12,000 units all over the world. Pardon me for my ignorance, but 12,000 is not a lot, right? Oh well, whatever it is, BMW thought it is a milestone worth mentioning and celebrating with a special edition BMW M2 called BMW M2 Coupe Edition Black Shadow. The Edition Black Shadow is supposed to emphasize “the compact high-powered sports car’s performance characteristics with precisely harmonized design features.” How so? I have absolutely no idea.

This Is The BMW P63/1, The Heart Of BMW’s WEC Contender, The BMW M8 GTE

Adoration for cars is beyond aesthetic. A true car lover will learn to adore the motor as much as the power it pumps out. I am not sure about you, but I, for one, is a person who love marveling at the engine as much as driving the car, or admiring its bodywork. This is the very reason why when I saw the press text from BMW, detailing the heart of the BMW M8 GTE, I get all wet with excitement and I felt compelled to share it with you folks. Continue reading This Is The BMW P63/1, The Heart Of BMW’s WEC Contender, The BMW M8 GTE

Unbeknownst to most, BMW Designworks have been around for quite a while now – 22 years to be exact, since BMW acquisition in 1995. For those who don’t already know, the creative consultancy has been involved in a lot of design and consultancy works across various industries. The more recent works include conceiving, in collaboration with Selle Royal, an advanced e-bike saddle and a “backhoe” of the future, designed with John Deere. Yes. Even a backhoe!

Madcap Inventor Show You How To Make A Jacuzzi On Wheels… With BBQ

Our favorite mad garage inventor, British plumber-turned-YouTube-inventing-celebrity, Colin Furze, is back and this time, he have received a special request from Google. The search giant wanted the madcap inventor to create something which could be used to advertise the Mountain View tech company’s search. In other words, the creation should be usable as a vehicle to promote using the products from Google’s advertisers and for companies to use them to sell. For a man who has an insatiable appetite to create, it is only natural for Furze to take up the challenge. Continue reading Madcap Inventor Show You How To Make A Jacuzzi On Wheels… With BBQ

BMW i Vision Dynamics Is The Electric Mobility Of “Immediate Future”

Described as an “electric mobility of the much more immediate future,” the BMW i Vision Dynamics bears a shell that indeed looks like a probable car of today, or at least, in very near future. Unveiled at this year’s IAA Cars 2017 show in Frankfurt, the BMW i Vision Dynamics is a four-door Gran Coupe powered by an undisclosed electric drive that offers a range of 373 miles (600 km), promised a top speed of 120 miles an hour (200 km/h) and takes mere four seconds to cover the century sprint. These are numbers that are not out-of-this-world, which means, they are likely to be realized. Even the aesthetic, while ‘futuristic’ in a way, looks pretty down-to-earth.

BMW Concept Z4 Gives You A Peek Of What Future Z4 May Look Like

If you have wondering how will the next Z4 looks like, well, wonder no more because BMW has, at this Concours d’Elegance at Pebble Beach, unveiled what-could-be-the-next Z4 looks like which it aptly christened BMW Concept Z4. Not surprisingly, BMW has retained the unmistakable distinct wedge-shaped silhouette of the Z4, including a lithe and compact proportions that sports an outstretched hood and a very, very compact rear, along with a low-slung form with a long wheelbase to boot. In other words, it embodies the elements classic roadster design. Continue reading BMW Concept Z4 Gives You A Peek Of What Future Z4 May Look Like

Custom BMW C Evolution Scooter Looks Like A Ride From Apocalypse

What you see here is not a half-baked electric maxi-scooter C Evolution from BMW Motorrad. It is just Rolf Reick of Krautmotors giving the C Evolution the art of omission, which means it is intentionally left bare. That’s another level of industrial look there that gives it an apocalypse vibe. I like! The multidisciplinary customizer has taken the road less traveled when whipping his magic on the BMW Motorrad’s e-scooter, removing the original cladding and adding an old-school casing which leaves half of the bike’s internals in all its glory. Yes, only half, but that’s dope enough. Man, the old-school casing in matte black kind of add to the futuristic apocalypse look. Continue reading Custom BMW C Evolution Scooter Looks Like A Ride From Apocalypse

BMW Unveiled New 4.4L V8 Bi-Turbo M5 with 600 HP of Adrenalin Rush

Good news M fans who can’t get enough of M power. The newest M power, the new BMW M5, has just gone official and it looks, well, so very 2017 BMW. That being said, there’s really nothing to pick on the aesthetic; it is just the design language you have come to expect of a Beemer of 2017/18. What’s important to true M fans would be what goes under that muscular, sculpted aluminum hood which happens to be a very, very angry 4.4L V8 bi-turbo motor with, you guessed it, M TwinPower Turbo technology that kicks out 600 horses and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm) of torque. Continue reading BMW Unveiled New 4.4L V8 Bi-Turbo M5 with 600 HP of Adrenalin Rush

BMW i3 “Spaghetti Car” by Maurizio Cattelan Sold For A Cool €100,000

First of all, I have no idea why a German car is decorated with Italian definitive symbol of cuisine, spaghetti, and presented in an auction by BMW France. Quite a mix, don’t you think? Anyways, the car you see here is the BMW i3 “Spaghetti Car” as touched by artist Maurizio Cattelan, the same artist behind the solid 18-karat toilet bowl. For some reasons unknown to our non-artistic minds, Cattelan and photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari, collectively called TOILETPAPER (!?), have decided to use the duo’s signature style spaghetti close-up imagery to decorated a BMW i3 and the result is, to us, both quirky and strangely alluring.
