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.

BMW And SPECIALIZED Announced Special Edition E-Mountain Bike

BMW has come together with premium trail bike maker SPECIALIZED to introduce a limited-run special edition of the bike maker’s Specialized Turbo Levo called SPECIALIZED for BMW Turbo Levo FSR 6Fattie. No doubt a marketing effort to promote German automaker’s new Sports Activity Vehicle, the new-generation X3, judging from its appearance in the various product images available to the press. Anyways, marketing talks aside, this e-mountain bike is clearly an exquisite, top-end item. Clever integration of the power module into the specially developed aluminum frame gave the bike a clean, regular bike look (but in an uber sleek way, of course).

Don’t Modified A BMW M4 Coupé For Track Until You Have Read This!

If you are planning to turn a lovely BMW M4 into a track-going beast, well, don’t, because BMW wants to save you the hassle with this tuned-for-track 2018 BMW M4 GT4. That’s right. The luscious M4 has a track variant and it wouldn’t be anything less of a ‘yay’ for track enthusiasts and racing car teams. As the name suggests, the GT4 is built upon the M4 Coupé, which means it inherited the engine and transmission, including control electronics, from the M4 Coupé, but being a tuned-for-track ride, it gets some serious upgrades like carbon hood from the BMW M4 GTS, carbon-fiber doors, motorsport-specific splitters and rear wings, a racing exhaust system, and seat, brakes and pedal box borrowed from BMW M6 GT3.

Man Parks E30 BMW M3 In The Living To Escape Hurricane Matthew

You know how some apartments or homes are designed to have a car parked inside the living? Well, clearly, Instagram user Jalilsup’s home isn’t one of them, but that did not stop him from rolling in his precious E30 BMW M3 into the house as Hurricane Matthew approaches. What he did leaves the Internet with mixed feelings. Some said he was silly not to drive away to keep himself and the car safe, while others simply baffled by the love he had for his car. Whatever it was, it was his choice and also, it helps if he happen to have a double door instead of those puny single door. Even then, Jalilsup’s prized car only marginally made into the home.

BMW Vision Next 100 Motorcycle Is An Absolute Porn For Futurists

Be futuristics, BMW Vision Next 100 Motorcycle unveiled earlier today at the “Iconic Impulses. The BMW Group Future Experience” exhibition in L.A. may get you all aroused. We have seen our fair share of futuristic bikes, but this one here rewrites everything that have read and seen about bike of the future. And yes, it still has wheels though, unfortunately. Hoverbike is way further than BMW’s vision of future bike. Aesthetically, the BMW Vision Next 100 Motorcycle is probably the first bike worthy of being called exotic, because it is. I mean, just look at the form. Continue reading BMW Vision Next 100 Motorcycle Is An Absolute Porn For Futurists

BMW Celebrates 30 Years Of M5 With “Most Powerful” M5 Yet

So, you have probably read that BMW has unveiled the most powerful M5, the “30 Jahre M5” (30 years of the M5), to mark the 30-year anniversary of the BMW M5. But with only 300 examples offered worldwide, the “30 Jahre M5” is just about a rare find as an honest man in Congress, oh, well, maybe not that rare, but you can’t argue that 300 is not a lot to go around. At least, BMW didn’t try to pull off a 30 number, which should be more fitting for the 30 years. Anywho, fortunately for BMW lovers, there are additional 200 units, though not exactly the 30 Jahre M5, to fill the demand. For around 129,500 Euros or more (or about US$142K+), you could get your hands on a similarly spec-ed M5, dubbed BMW M5 “Competition Edition.” Continue reading BMW Celebrates 30 Years Of M5 With “Most Powerful” M5 Yet
