In a new report by Carscoops, BMW M boss, Frank van Meel, said the M5 MotoGP safety car actually previews what's to come from the more focused version of its super sedan – set to launch later this year...

BMW M8 Gran Coupe concept revealed in Geneva

Hot on the heels of the big Mercedes-AMG GT 4 Door Coupe reveal, BMW has pulled back the sheet on a M8 Gran Coupe concept. Before we get into the Gran Coupe, let's talk about the elephant in the room. This isn't the production M8, or indeed the 8 Series we've been eagerly awaiting. BMW hasn't announced a launch date for those cars, so we'll have to keep on waiting...

2019 BMW M3 spied

The next-generation BMW M3 has been spied during cold weather testing in Europe this week. Not much is really known about the super sedan at this point, nor does the heavy camouflage lend much to the imagination in terms of its design, though we can tell the next-gen M3 – and the 3 Series it will be based on – will be an evolution rather than an revolution...

2019 BMW X5 M spied

The next-generation BMW X5 M has been spotted testing on the icy roads of Sweden this week, ahead of a likely reveal sometime later this year.

2018 BMW M4 Pure v M4 CS comparison

If there’s validation in twin-testing the 2017 BMW M4 Pure and the 2017 M4 CS – the most affordable and priciest variants of the Em-Four stable right now – I need to unearth it quick smart. Not merely in an attempt at relevant buying advice for you, dear reader, but also to justify why I needed to burn the fuel and rubber of two of BMW’s finest performers across some of Australia’s finest driving roads for a couple of days to those who dwell up on high in the CarAdvice ivory tower...

2018 BMW 8 Series previewed on the track

The 2018 BMW 8 Series has been put through its paces in Italy, as the flagship coupe edges closer to a full reveal. Although the images are new, further detail about the big two-door BMW is sorely lacking. We know there will be an M8, and reports have suggested an M850i will slot into the lineup as well. It's expected to have a 4...

With its combination of 250kW/500Nm turbocharged six-cylinder power, rear drive and choice of manual or automatic transmission shoehorned into a small five-door body shell, the BMW M140 LCI was one of 2017's most unique and highly anticipated offerings for the discerning petrolhead. Better still, BMW wiped five grand from this mid-life updated version of the range-topping small hatchback...
