BMW has chosen the Michelin Pilot Super Sport as the sole 21-inch fitment for its new high-performance X6M Sports Activity Coupe. The new BMW X6M is fitted with the optional 21-inch forged alloy wheels and exclusively with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. The 285/35ZR21 105Y front and 325/30ZR21 108Y rear ultra-high-performance tires feature a number of Michelin patented technologies including Bi-Compound tread and Variable Contact Patch 2.0. These tires are the result of a two-year co-development between BMW M and Michelin.

During this development phase around 1,400 prototype tires and 500 pre-production tires were produced and tested to ensure the tires delivered the performance characteristics demanded by the BMW engineers.

michelin-pilot-super-sport-bmw-x6-m-02

Originally developed for endurance race tires, Bi-Compound technology uses different rubber compounds on the left and right sides of the tread. On the outer shoulder, an elastomer ensures exceptional grip and wear resistance during cornering, while on the inside, a different elastomer combines with a special tread design to enables the tire, on wet roads, to break through the water’s surface and offer grip in difficult driving conditions. READ ALSO: Michelin Super Sport Tire Review The innovative feature of the Variable Contact Patch 2.0 is that it changes shape depending on real-time driving conditions, thereby guaranteeing total vehicle control. In this way, even as the patch’s shape changes when cornering, the amount of rubber in contact with the road remains the same. The combination of these technologies means the Michelin Pilot Super Sport achieves a unique balance between grip, comfort, safety and driving enjoyment that meets BMW M’s exacting standards and makes it suitable for everyday road use as well as on the racetrack in demanding conditions.

Earlier today, we had a chance to get behind the wheel of the new 2015 BMW 2 Series Convertible and take it for a spin around the city of Austin. The new BMW 2 Series convertible has some big shoes to fill: The predecessor sold worldwide more than 130,000 units and was the most successful car in its segment. With an overall length of 4.43 meters, the 2 Series Convertible dominates its predecessor by 7.2 centimeters, while being 2.6 centimeters wider. BMW also promises more space for all occupants and has the boot volume increased by 30 liters to a total of 335 liters. With the roof open, there are 280 liters available, 20 liters more than the “old” BMW 1 Series Convertible E88.

The exterior design of the BMW 2 Series Convertible displays the typical characteristics of an open-top four-seater from the Bavarian brand. The BMW 2 Series Convertible combines a low-slung silhouette and dynamically stretched lines with compact proportions and powerfully contoured surfaces.

When it comes to safety features and infotainment features, the new 2 Series is a step ahead of the E88 1 Series, by offering more standard and optional equipment than ever. In terms of driving dynamics, the 2 Series Convertible offers an adaptive suspension that can be tuned to suit any driving style, from comfortable to super sporty, with a touch of a button. A 20 percent increase in torsional rigidity will take care of the most body roll and deliver a great driving experience.

We will share our driving experience later today. BMW says the 2 Series Convertible will be a large volume seller in the United States, more so than the 1 Series Cabriolet. The 2015 M235i and 228i as well as the 228i xDrive, featuring BMW’s intelligent all-wheel drive system, will arrive in US showrooms in early 2015.

The 2015 BMW 2 Series Convertible will be offered at a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $38,850 for the 228i, $40,650 for the 228i xDrive, $48,650 for the M235i, including $950 destination and handling.

The new BMW 2 Series Convertible has some big shoes to fill: The predecessor sold more than 130,000 units worldwide and was the most successful car in its segment. To see how the new compact convertible handles on the road, we headed to Austin, Texas, for a morning session behind the wheel. The exterior design of the BMW 2 Series Convertible displays the typical characteristics of an open-top four-seater from the Bavarian brand. The BMW 2 Series Convertible combines a low-slung silhouette and dynamically stretched lines with compact proportions and powerfully contoured surfaces.

2015-bmw-2-series-convertible-images--56

It will be available in the United States as a BMW 228i and M235i. An xDrive version of the BMW M235i will be available also in 2015. In March 2015, the BMW 2 Series Coupe and the BMW 2 Series Convertible receive a new base engine with three cylinders: the new BMW 218i is powered by the three-cylinder BMW B38 – 136 hp – familiar from the MINI Cooper. Four cylinder petrol and diesel engines are offered to customers as well. These models are available only to European customers.

Earlier today, we had the chance to track the new 2015 BMW X6 M at the Circuit Of The Americas race track in Austin, Texas. The new X6 M was not only driven by us by also by DTM drivers. Marco Wittmann, the 2014 DTM Champion, ex-F1 driver Timo Glock and former BMW RLL driver Joey Hand were on site also testing the X6 M while also giving hot laps to journalists from around the world. Our track review will follow shortly, but in the mean time, we wanted to share some videos from COTA showing the capabilities of the X6 M.

2015-bmw-x6-m-austin-images-58

Under the hood, the X6 M sports a reworked M TwinPower Turbo engine, a V8 that provides more power and torque, and better power delivery. The peak output of the new M turbocharged engine is 567 hp, three percent higher than that of its predecessor and is available between 6,000 and 6,500 rpm. At the same time, the engine’s peak torque has been boosted by around 10 percent to 553 lb-ft, which can be enjoyed across an extremely broad rev band – from 2,200 to 5,000 rpm.

Hallmark M power, outstanding driving dynamics and an emphasis on sporting design are signature attributes of the two large BMW X models from BMW M GmbH. In order to shine an even brighter spotlight on these characteristics, the Original BMW Accessories range for the BMW X5 M and BMW X6 M offers a raft of special BMW M Performance Parts designed to allow precise individualization of the cars’ exterior and interior design. Attractive BMW M Performance Parts for the exterior Among the features included in the range to accentuate the sporting appearance of the BMW X5 M and X6 M are exclusive radiator and side grille ornamental trim with black slats, black frame and M logo imparting the distinctive BMW M Performance look.

The standard chrome grilles can be effortlessly swapped for the corresponding BMW M Performance Parts. Customers can also specify their car with high-quality, handmade carbon exterior mirror caps, which add an extra sporting accent to the exterior of both the BMW X5 M and X6 M. Motor sport stripes in the three signature M colours provide a direct and conspicuous link to the brand’s racing heritage and signal the cars’ sporting character from a distance. The BMW X6 M, meanwhile, can also be ordered with rear fins in high-gloss black, which not only lend it a particularly dynamic and elegant appearance, but also contribute to further improved aerodynamics.

Exclusive accessories bring an extra dose of sportiness to the interior Specially developed BMW M Performance Accessories take the interior ambience of the BMW X5 M and X6 M – already an extremely sporty environment in standard form – to even greater heights. The LED door sill plates in brushed stainless steel look with illuminated M Performance lettering grab the attention when you open the front doors, and battery power means they are extremely easy to retrofit, with no need for laying cables.

The sense of sporting prowess on board can be sharpened still further by sophisticated carbon accessories such as BMW M Performance carbon interior trim strips and carbon trim bearing the BMW M logo for the selector lever of the eight-speed M Steptronic gearbox. Centre console trim with a high-quality combination of Alcantara and painted carbon around the selector lever is also available to lend the cockpit a sporty and exclusive accent.

Another highlight of the Accessories range for the interior of the BMW X5 M and X6 M is the BMW M Performance steering wheel in Alcantara with attractive carbon trim. It is extremely grippy even in extreme driving situations and remains equally pleasant to the touch in all temperatures. The blue centre marker at the top imparts a genuine motor sport feeling, a sensation underlined by BMW M Performance stainless steel pedal covers, which provide a visually appealing and functional complement to the other BMW M Performance Parts. The easy-care BMW M Performance floor mats also display eye-catching M Performance lettering and fit snugly in the footwell. The BMW M Performance key case with sophisticated Alcantara/carbon material combination, fine accents in M Light Blue and high-quality blue hex bolt provides a permanent reminder of the sporting performance of the BMW X5 M and BMW X6 M wherever you happen to be.

Original BMW Accessories increase the value of the car In contrast to many third-party products, Original BMW Accessories – which include the range of BMW M Performance Parts – are always matched perfectly to the model in question and are permitted for use with that vehicle. The car’s warranty, moreover, remains unaffected. All of which means the high-quality selection of Original BMW Accessories enhances not only the car’s driving pleasure, but its value as well.
