Since the BMW M3 is by definition a super-sports sedan, you can't really call it a sleeper, can you? However, with 900 horses on tap, this particular E90 model could take just about anyone, and anything, by surprise.

Here’s A Love Letter To The BMW E60 M5’s Epic V10 Engine 13

Just in case you needed a reminder of how incredibly awesome the 5.0-liter V10 engine in the BMW E60 M5 was, here’s a little something that should bring back those memories.

Codenamed S85, the naturally aspirated 10-cylinder engine was designed specifically for this M5 (and its two-door counterpart, the M6), producing 500hp (507PS) and 380lb-ft (520Nm) of torque.

The US-spec E60 M5s were the only ones in the world to be offered with a manual six-speed gearbox, as the rest of the world got a seven-speed SMG automated manual transmission only, which is easily the weakest link in a car that’s been universally praised for its performance and handling.

Featuring a compression ratio of 12.0:1 and able to rev up to 8,250rpm, the S85 makes the E60 M5 a true screamer, giving the four-door super-saloon a proper supercar-like soundtrack that is so missing from cars these days.

In the following video, Carwow has a go in a BMW E60 M5, reminding us of its epic engine and the beautiful music it made.

BMW 1M Coupe With Custom Exhaust Sounds Like A Machine Gun Firing 11

Monaco’s scenery is usually dominated by exotic rides, but one BMW 1M Coupe managed to stand out a few days ago.

This is a limited edition of the car that preceded the M2 and was produced in just 6,309 units, including the 740 sold in the United States and 220 shipped to Canada.

Compared, by some, to the original M3 E30, it’s powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbo straight-six that sends 335hp and 450Nm (332lb-ft) of torque to the rear wheels. This allows it to hit 100km/h (62mph) from a standstill in just 4.9 seconds and reach an electronically limited top speed of 250km/h (155mph).

Its performance and limited availability would be enough to make it a head turner, but the owner of this particular car, which has Swiss license plates, wanted a bit more, so he fitted it with a custom body kit, a special wrap and black wheels.

However, what made it a real head turner is the special exhaust system that basically makes it sound like an Group B rally car – and that’s high praise indeed. The backfires bring it extra points too, although we can imagine his neighbors might not be too thrilled…

Watch The New BMW M5 Set Two Drifting Records At The Same Time 9
Jan

An all-wheel drive, automatic family sedan is about the last vehicle you’d think would drift. (Trust us, we’ve tried it.) But the new BMW M5 is no ordinary family sedan.

In fact it just set not one, but two new records for doing just that: one record that it beat – positively obliterated, really – and another that it set for the first time.

The idea was to take back the record for the longest sustained drift. BMW broke the previous record a few years back when Johan Schwartz oversteered a previous M5 around the skidpad at the BMW Performance Center in South Carolina (where Schwartz works as a driving instructor).

He managed to lap the skidpad 322.5 times that time, covering a distance of 51.278 miles. Then someone beat his record, so they went at it again at the same track, with same driver, and a new M5.

Though the rules would ostensibly have allowed them to stop and refuel, the team at BMW went one better, setting another record in the process. They rigged up a military-aviation-style refueling rig, brought a second M5 in alongside the first one in a parallel drift, and gassed up one car from the other while they both skidded sideways around the wet track.

Not once, either: five times over the course of eight uninterrupted hours of continuous drifting, covering a total distance of 232.5 miles. The previous record they had to beat, in case you were wondering: 89.55 miles. Like we said, positively obliterated. And BMW has two new Guinness World Records to show for it.

Did BMW Really Just Refuel An M5 Mid-Drift? 8

With 600 horsepower and a trick all-wheel drive system, the new 2018 BMW M5 is surely capable of a lot. But a mid-drift refueling?

From what this video has to show us, yes – that’s exactly what the Bavarian automaker has pulled off with its new performance sedan.

Though the details have yet to be released, it appears that the M5 just set some sort of record – Guinness-certified, no less – for the world’s longest sustained drift, covering the greatest distance possible in one continuous, 8-hour power slide.

In fact the M5 appears to have drifted for so long that it needed to be gassed up in the middle. So they did it military-style, lining up with another M5 and transferring fuel from one car to the other.

That’s about all we know at the moment, but BMW promises to give us more on the stunt tomorrow. In the meantime, you can get a taste for what they pulled off in the pair of videos below. Just please promise us that you won’t try to do the same yourself.

BMW Driver Rear Ends Multiple Cars While In Distress 3

The driver of this E60 BMW 5-Series damaged a total of five vehicles at a stop light in Suceava, Romania, while having an epilepsy seizure.

The accident occurred last week in downtown Suceava, and according to reports, during the seizure, the driver (a young man) was unable to remove his right foot from the accelerator pedal.

In the end, he had to be taken to a nearby hospital, as were four other motorists involved in the crash. As you can tell from the footage, the car was traveling worryingly fast at the moment of impact.

According to Observator, the driver of the BMW is now under investigation by authorities. While he did have a valid UK driver’s license, police investigators will be looking to see if he had been cleared to drive by any medical establishment.

As for the silver lining, at least the out-of-control car didn’t run through the intersection, potentially hitting pedestrians on any nearby sidewalk.

Note: Mind the explicit language at the end

BMW M4 DTM Special Edition Puts Up A Fight Against Mercedes-AMG GT R 27

The BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition was unveiled after Marco Wittman won the 2016 DTM driver’s title, and was a limited run of only 200 units.

Mind you, it’s not just an M4 with a fancy paintjob and some extras thrown in. In fact, it’s also a very competent one in a straight line, as it utilizes the same water injection system as the hardcore M4 GTS, pumping out a total of 500 PS (493 HP) and 600 Nm (443 lb-ft) of torque.

According to the Bavarian automaker, the M4 DTM will get from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.8 seconds, before topping out at 305 km/h (189 mph).

On the other side of the track is the Mercedes-AMG GT R, packing 585 PS and even more torque than the Bimmer, at 700 Nm (516 lb-ft). On paper, it should also out-sprint the M4 in the 0-100 km run by roughly 0.2 seconds, although the difference is so small that, in real world conditions, things might prove to be a bit different.

Moreover, the AMG GT R is the heavier car here, by a considerable 120 kg (265 lbs). So who do you think won this drag race? The answer lies in the video that follows right after the jump.

From 286 HP To 600, The BMW M5 Has Progressed A Lot Over Over The Years 25

Posted by Carscoops Staff in BMW, BMW M5, BMW Videos, Film, video on 12 25th, 2017


When you think of performance sedans, the BMW M5 is bound to be among the first that comes to mind. But the Bavarian super-sled is not a monolith that has remained constant over time in the same way as, say the Porsche 911.

While most versions of the M5 have been front-engine/rear-drive four-door sedans, there’ve been wagons as well, and the latest one comes with all-wheel drive. And that’s before we even get to the powertrains.

We’ve seen M5s with six, eight, and even ten cylinders, turbocharged or naturally aspirated, with manual, automatic, and dual-clutch transmissions, and with outputs ranging from 286 horsepower all the way up to 600.

That’s a heck of a transformation, and it’s all chronicled (along with some interesting factoids for the truly obsessed) in the video below – not from Donut Media, but from the (relatively) new Cars Evolution channel.

BMW M760Li Has The Audacity To Take On Mercedes-AMG’s Mighty S63 24
Dec

The BMW M760Li xDrive isn’t the M7 people have been waiting to happen for years, but it is still exceptionally fast. So fast, in fact, that it can actually challenge a Mercedes-AMG S63 in a straight-line.

AutoTopNL recently had the chance to drive the duo side-by-side on the Autobahn and have synced runs of the two luxury super sedans accelerating up to 315 km/h (196 mph).

What makes the range-topping 7-Series such a formidable rival is its twin-turbo 6.6-liter V12 that pumps out 592 hp at 5500 rpm and 590 lb-ft of torque at 1500 rpm. Additionally, it features an M-tuned eight-speed automatic transmission that sends power to all four wheels.

Surprisingly, the M760Li is not that far behind the mighty S63 AMG that, with 603 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque, clearly has the upper hand when it comes to performance. Even so, throughout most of the run, it’s within 5-10 km/h of its performance-focused foe from Stuttgart. Not bad for something that’s not a true M car.

BMW M760Li Flies To 320km/h Or 200MPH On The Autobahn 22

The acceleration abilities of the BMW M760Li xDrive have become a talking point since the vehicle’s launch but, as it turns out, it has performance abilities well beyond simply launching from a standstill to 100 km/h (62mph) faster than a lot of sports cars.

In fact, the M760Li is capable of truly phenomenal highway cruising speeds, as AutoTopNL recently discovered when testing the car out on the German Autobahn.

With a free road ahead of it, the M760Li was able to scream to 320 km/h (200 mph) without breaking a sweat. The Bavarian limo appears incredibly stable and composed at such high speeds, and is without a doubt the ultimate car in BMW’s range when it comes to ultra-fast highway cruising.

Making the M760Li such a straight-line beast is its twin-turbocharged 6.6-liter V12 engine delivering 592 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. This engine transfers all of its grunt to the road through a quick-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.

Putting Coke Into The Gas Tank Is One Way To Ruin Your Car 20
Dec
Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in BMW, BMW Videos, Film, Offbeat News, video on 12 20th, 2017


Be it the classic recipe or the diet version, Coca-Cola, as other soft drinks, cannot be used as a substitute for gasoline or diesel.

However, for the fun of it, a YouTuber who’s particularly famous for ruining phones, has decided to put 2 liters of Coke in the gas tank of his BMW E46 325i Estate.

What happens next is very much predictable, as he jumped behind the wheel and started driving, while his shotgun-riding companion filmed their short journey, before the car’s engine failed, leaving them in the middle of a junction, to the amusement of both.

Fast-forward to a repair shop to see how much damage pouring the fizzy drink into the tank made, brings us to the most interesting part of the video, but we won’t completely spoil that for you, as all we can say is that the repairs cost more than the old Bimmer.

From what we have learned over the years, Coca-Cola is great for giving your tires a nice shine, it can also be used to clear rust off various metals, and it’s also good for removing blood stains, not that you would ever need that knowledge, though.

And remember, don’t, under any circumstance, try this at home.
