2020 BMW M3: Manual option confirmed

BMW has hinted at the existence of a manual 2020 M3, but the company has stopped short of all-out confirming it. Until now.

2020 BMW M4 Convertible spied

Photographers have snapped the new BMW M4 Convertible this week, giving us a first look at the next generation of the marque’s hot ragtop. While the design changes are a little difficult to see thanks to the heavy camouflage and pre-production panels, one of the biggest differences between this car and the model currently on sale is indeed the soft top, with BMW electing to employ a folding fabric roof compared to the metal unit used on today’s 4 Series...

That means the 'pushing piece' could be pulled out of the driveshaft...

When we spoke to boss Frank Van Meel at the launch of the M2 and M5 Competition earlier this week, he said we can expect to still have the option of a stick shift, even as the company moves to its new, modular fifth-generation architecture...

BMW M will electrify everything, division boss says

BMW has recently said it thinks up to 40 per cent of the cars it produces by 2025 may be powered by some form of pure electric or hybrid powertrain, and now we have confirmation that M Division is set to get in on the act. "For sure, all M vehicles will be electrified by the end of the next decade," Frank Van Meel, M's boss, told Australian journalists at the launch of the updated BMW M2 and new M5 Competition in Spain...

BMW M4 'CSL' spied at the Nurburgring

A beefed up BMW M4 prototype has been spotted this week at the Nurburgring, hinting at an even more focused edition of the Bavarian performance coupe before a new generation arrives in a couple of years time. This particular vehicle appears to be based on the already-wild M4 GTS, but turns the dial up to 11 with race-inspired components for the front splitter, side skirts, rear diffuser, and a massive fixed rear wing...
