2020 BMW X7 M50i here in Q4 from $171,900

BMW Australia has confirmed the V8-powered X7 M50i xDrive will be launching Down Under during the fourth quarter, priced from $171,900 plus on-road costs. Taking over performance flagship duties from the temporarily-discontinued M50d quad-turbo diesel, the M50i swaps out the boosted six-cylinder turbo-diesel for a stonking 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 developing 390kW (@5500-6000rpm) and 750Nm (@1800-4600rpm).

2019 BMW M8 gets M Performance treatment

You'd think the BMW M8 was already about as M as it could possibly be, right? Wrong! BMW has revealed the car's M Performance Parts catalogue just two days after launching its new 'Porsche Turbo killer', allowing owners tack a range of carbon-fibre bits onto their new M8.

2020 BMW X5 M50i, X7 M50i unveiled

The range-topping BMW X5 M50i and X7 M50i were unveiled overnight, ahead of an anticipated Australian launch before the end of the year. Like the M850i xDrive, both crossovers are powered by a 4.4-litre V8 with two turbochargers located within the V. The engine is said to make 390kW of power between 5500 and 6000rpm, and 750Nm between 1800rpm and 4600rpm. All of that is channelled to the ground via an eight-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel drive system.

2020 BMW M340i revealed: xDrive for us, RWD option for USA

The new 2019 BMW M340i xDrive has been revealed tonight ahead of its Australian debut, properly positioned as an AMG C43 rival – and with the glittery grille bling to match. This follows a basic detailing at last month's Paris motor show, where BMW confirmed its key points: 275kW of power, 500Nm of torque, and a 0-100km/h time of 4.4 seconds. By comparison, the outgoing, rear-wheel-drive 340i lists 240kW, 450Nm, and 5.2 seconds. A fair improvement, then.

2019 BMW 1 Series spied at the Nurburgring

The BMW 1 Series has been spotted outside the Nurburgring, and although the vehicle has roughly the same level of disguise as the model spied undergoing cold weather testing earlier this year, the lower speeds and clearer conditions give us a better view of the new hatchback.
