They say that sibling rivalry usually stems from a place of love – but is that the case when it comes to cars? Well, we are about to find out.
Cars, especially performance cars, are pitted against each other almost everyday. People have their favourites and they always want to put their baby up against another car to prove that they are the best, fastest and most powerful. Thus, it’s nothing new to see two cars go head-to-head to claim victory over the other vehicle.
However, its not everyday that the two cars being put up against each other is, well, basically-sort-of the same car. Except not at all. Am I confusing you? Allow me to explain.
Recently, the people over at Evo decided to pit a BMW M5 against a BMW M4 – what some would call it’s modern sibling. (more…)
We’re all for greener, more Earth-friendly electric cars. While at first there was only the Prius – that in all honesty wasn’t the best looking car – there are more and more electric cars and hybrids popping up that look and perform way better.
Thus is it almost inevitable that one day, electric cars will be the market standard.
However, there is one problem that electric cars face; charging. Sure, you can charge your car at home, but you won’t be able to travel as far as you would want to with the initial charge before your battery runs out and you need to plug in again.
Well, this is one problem that BMW is looking too eradicate – thus making it easier for people to drive around with their electric cars and in turn encouraging others to move over to the lighter side of (automobile) life. (more…)
BMW fans were a little disappointed – and some even angry – when BMW decided to change the name of the iconic M3 to the more, updated M4. While that is understandable, as the BMW M3 was synonymous with power, the new 2015 M4 shouldn’t be shunned that quickly.
Sure, fans were also disappointed that the car was converted to electric steering, but that doesn’t mean that the M4 isn’t every bit as powerful as it’s famous predecessor.
Mike Spinelli of the Drive Channel recently had a chat to the Vice President of BMW’s engineering department, Albert Biermann,, about the production of the M4 and why it is such a good car.

The BMW i8 has just been unveiled and people all around the world seem to be pretty impressed with the German automaker’s hybrid electric sports car. And now it looks like rumours are already doing the rounds of a BMW i9 in the pipeline.
According to various German media sources, BMW is already planning a 4-door, bigger version of the i8 aptly called the i9. These sources claim that the i9 might even be rolled out as early as 2016 – leaving the company with less than two years to bring the proposed i9 to life.
The i9 is reported to have a similar hybrid approach as the i8. The only difference will be that the i9 is said to be bigger inside and have four doors instead of two. (more…)
While we have known about the BMW i8 for months now – the much anticipated Hybrid electric luxury car has finally made it’s official debut at last week’s New York Auto Show.
The i8, which serves as both an electric and hybrid car, is definitely one to draw attention. However, besides it’s sleek modern and somewhat futuristic looks, the car is actually a celebration of what modern, green technology can bring to the auto industry.
The car features an astonishing 362 horsepower. That’s quite the powerful car. It combines a 3 cylinder petrol engine with an addition electric engine which obviously attributes to the car’s high horsepower. (more…)
Here is a little something to brighten up the start of your week.
If you could put your money on either a Lamborghini Aventador, a BMW M6 or a Porsche GT 3 wining a drag race, which one would it be? I know which horse I’d back…
Well, obviously we’re not really at a racing track but we can dream, can’t we? Recently, DragInfo posted a video on their YouTube channel of this exact scenario.
A Lamborghini Aventador, modified to have 730 horsepower taking on a PP performance tuned BMW M6 and, just for good measure, a 1000 horsepower Porsche GT 3 RS joins the party. (more…)
Not too long ago we posted some spy shots of the all new 2014, Mini Cooper. Well, the time for spying is over as the third generation Mini was officially launched today.
BMW revealed the all new Mini, and while it still looks the same and features everything you’d expect from the car, it has been upgraded some what on the inside – including some brand spanking new technology to go along with it. (more…)
