BMW M2 supply for Australia grows

It will surprise few to learn that the 2016 allocation of just 300 BMW M2 coupes for Australia was quickly exhausted. Orders flew out the door so quickly, BMW says, that many who missed out were spending up for an M3 or M4 rather than wait around for next year's deliveries. A clever strategy to boost sales of its more expensive M cars? Perhaps, but you can hardly begrudge a business acting like a business...

40 years of M: a quick look at the history of BMW Motorsport

For the past 40 years, the letter M has signified something special beneath the blue and white BMW badge. And now, with the addition of the M2, BMW’s M-car range is at its most diverse ever. But, what makes these tri-colour road warriors so special? Established in 1972 to support BMW’s motorsport activities, the M division initially turned its attention to the iconic E9 3...

BMW M doesn’t want hardcore hatchback or four-cylinder model

The hot-hatch war continues unabated, but BMW is adamant it won’t be entering the battle with a full-on M-branded hatchback. With the likes of the Audi RS3 and Mercedes-AMG A45 hyper hatchbacks fighting it out at the top end of the market while more affordable models like the Ford Focus RS also bring big performance bang for your buck, there’s space for BMW to join the race...
