BMW I3 Spied – Out in the Cold

Here are the latest spyshots of the BMW I3 testing in northern Sweden.

The eDrive technology consisting of an extremely agile electric motor developed and built by BMW, innovative battery technology and an intelligent engine management system. Makes the BMW i3 extremely agile and a joy to drive. The electric motor over the rear axle – which generates output of 125 kW/170 hp and impressive torque of 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) from a standstill – and a small turning circle combine to deliver pleasingly dynamic driving characteristics.

The BMW i3 accelerates from 0 to 60 km/h (37 mph) in under four seconds and from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than eight seconds.

Innovative connectivity functions create a seamless connection between the BMW i3 and its customers’ lives outside the car. Remote functions accessible via a smartphone enable owners to find their vehicles, flag up nearby charging stations, allow battery charging and preconditioning at the touch of a button, and supply information on the current status of the vehicle. Meanwhile, intelligent BMW ConnectedDrive assistance systems ease the stress on drivers in city driving situations and allow a safer arrival at their destination, with a more relaxed state of mind.

Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series laps the ‘Ring in 7:46

Some  Mercedes Benz blogs on the internet are reporting that the C63 AMG Black Series, has lapped the famous Nurburgring Nordschleife in 7:46 at the hands of the infamous SportAuto test drivers in Germany.

The C63 AMG Black Series has shaved two seconds off the BMW M3 GTS respectable time off 7:48.

We expect some news from Mercedes Via SportAuto in the next few Days and hopefully a video to back up the rumour.

 


BMW F32 4 Series Coupe – Spyshots

Here are the latest spy shots of the 3 Series coupe which is rumoured to be the 4 series.

Hiding under the heavy camouflage you can see the design cues from the 6 series coupe and the Hofmeister kink will be hidden somewhere under the camouflage.

The Coupe is rumoured to sport the new engines as the 3 series saloon, and probably end up with another M Powered Variant.

We expect the car to lose some of the camouflage late 2012 and possibility for a Production Concept to be shown Early 2013.

BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe Spied in Munich

These spyshots show that BMW has an answer for the Audi A7 and the Mercedes CLS.

This is the new Gran Coupe, the firm’s four-door version of the 6 Series sporting the M Sports Pack.

M Division has come up with a subtle body with a more aggressive front bumper, incorporating larger vents and a deeper chin, as well as a redesigned rear bumper which continues the theme from the revised side skirts.

First revealed at the Beijing last year, the new model has appeared on German Autobahn unchanged from the original ‘production concept’ that previewed it.

Apart from some of BMW’s usual 3M Camouflage tape on the front and rea quarter, this prototype shows that the new model is an elegant addtion to the 6 series cars.

Expect some splattering of M Brand throughout the trimmings in the M Sports Pack

At the front is the traditional kidney grille flanked by aggressive LED headlights. In profile, all the BMW hallmarks are present and correct – there are short overhangs front and rear, a long wheelbase and a coupe-like roofline which is a full 10cm lower than a 7 Series. The C-pillar features the latest interpretation of the Hofmeister kink, which will be outlined in chrome on the finished car.

Inside, expect BMW to offer a spacious rear seat layout with just two seats, allowing occupants to stretch out in more comfort. Just like the 6 Series two-door coupe and convertible, the Gran Coupe will get the same range of engines too, including BMW’s latest direct injection 3.0-litre turbo petrol and diesel engines, as well as a flagship V8 petrol.

The Gran Coupe is set to be unvailed at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September with sales starting 2012. Prices will kick off at around £45,000.

Trilogy of BMW 1M Wrecks – Poland – Switzerland – South Korea

We all know the BMW 1M is one of the best M powered cars to come from Munich since the e30 M3.

It looks like the BMW 1M Coupe is becoming a world wide handfull as the marque has allready come unstuck in three different continents.

Just hope we dont see any more of these in the coming weeks.

Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series: The most powerful C-Class of all time – Video

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KqlwSRAKrrw[/youtube]

After numerous sightings and the Pistonspy Exclusives, Mercedes at Affalterbach have officially released photos.

The new Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series embodies the new AMG brand claim, Driving Performance, like no other AMG model. The new high-performance vehicle is the most powerful C-Class of all time, boasting a maximum output of 380 kW (517 hp) and a maximum torque of 620 newton metres. The AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine impresses with its hefty torque, tremendous pulling power and responsiveness, and ensures high-calibre performance: the C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds.

It doesn’t matter from which angle you’re looking at it: the new C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series displays its ties with motorsport from every perspective. The arrow-shaped front section with the central Mercedes star in the radiator grille is the visual synonym for its unfettered forwards thrust. The air intakes in the striking front apron ensure reliable air flow through the large cooling modules. Two openings in the aluminium bonnet support the expelling of engine heat, whilst the struts positioned at an angle in the front apron emphasise the vehicle’s width. The black front splitter located at the lower end helps to balance the vehicle aerodynamically at speed.

The tail end of the Black Series coupé is also a feast for the eyes: the new rear apron with its expressive black diffuser insert creates a broad effect. Just like on the SLS AMG GT3, it protrudes beyond the profile of the rear apron. The black grille on the upper end of the diffuser insert is an eye-catching feature, as is the AMG sports exhaust system: both of the chromed twin tailpipes integrated into the rear apron have an angular cross-section. The spoiler lip on the boot lid is painted in the vehicle colour and reduces lift at the rear axle, resulting in more driving stability at high speeds. The AMG logo with its discreet “Black Series” lettering is reserved exclusively for the C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series.

The C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series is celebrating its world premiere during the Formula 1 race on the Nürburgring, the German Grand Prix (23 – 24 July 2011). The market launch will follow in January 2012, and its sales price is 115,430 euros (incl. 19% VAT).

2012 BMW 3 Series Spyvideo of the 335i

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zBye7nYMm2s[/youtube]

This is the latest spyvideo of the 2012 3 series of the 335i Prototype (F30).

The 3 Series is born from the design elements from the F10 5 Series.

The side profile sports a double line that starts above the front arch and runs to the rear light cluster.

Based on the brake rotors and engine note, we believe we are looking at a prototype running with a six-cylinder engine.

The new 3 Series will use four and six-cylinder powerplants. Both are making use of the twin-scroll lagless turbochargers.

BMW will officially introduce the F30 3 Series at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

2012 BMW F30 3-Series Spyshots

The 2012 F30 3-series sedan has been spotted sporting lighter Camouflage on the streets of Munich.

The 3-series is expected to be teased in concept form at the build up to the London Olympics, And will make its world debut at the 2012 Geneva motor show in March of 2012.

Expect engine options to include a full range of turbo engines. The 28i will likely be powered by the same N20 turbo 4-cylinder powering the X1 xDrive28i and the upcoming Z4 sDrive28i, and the F30 335i/340i will again be powered by a detuned variant of the M1 coupe power unit.
