The BMW Group presents pioneering drive technologies during a driving event at the Miramas proving grounds in southern France. The BMW Group’s largest testing facility offers the ideal environment for the intensive, real-world testing of drive systems and driving dynamics. BMW eDrive technology from the BMW i cars continues to find its way into series production models from the BMW brand. The prototype of a BMW 2 Series Active Tourer with plug-in hybrid drive system demonstrates the high flexibility of BMW eDrive technology; first plug-in hybrid vehicle from BMW with a front/transverse-mounted combustion engine, high-voltage generator and road-linked all-wheel drive thanks to an electric drive system at the rear axle. Direct water injection enhances the efficiency of combustion engines at higher performance levels and also significantly reduces fuel consumption and emissions in key driving cycles for customers. Hydrogen fuel cell drive system is a future-focused variant of BMW eDrive technology allowing all-electric driving with a high operating range and short refuelling times. The BMW Group’s many years of research and development work in this field are given fresh momentum by the collaboration with the Toyota Motor Corporation.

The new BMW M3 and M4 have become the darling of the tuning world with lots of shops competing to deliver the most power output possible. This latest M4 project comes from PURE, a California-based company, who gave their project car 708 horsepower at the wheel. Their Stage 2 kit also brings the S55 engine to 707 wtq while using race fuel Octane 100 and methanol. The mods include their S55 PURE Stage 2 Turbos, BMS JB4 w/ OBD2 cable, BMS Meth Kit, Magnaflow Exhaust, Evolution Racewerks downpipes and BMC drop in filters. A manual transmission was used in this M4, along with a stock intake system.

Vorsteiner BMW E92 M3 on Flow Forged V-FF 103 carbon graphite wheels

The last generation BMW M3 is powered by a naturally aspirated V8 and it’s the only M3 that revs to an insane 8,300 rpm. Its S65 V8 was named International Engine Of The Year from 2008-2012 in the 3.0 – 4.0 liter category. Performance wise, the E...

The last generation BMW M3 is powered by a naturally aspirated V8 and it’s the only M3 that revs to an insane 8,300 rpm. Its S65 V8 was named International Engine Of The Year from 2008-2012 in the 3.0 – 4.0 liter category. Performance wise, the E92 M3 is a monster on track and on the road, some magazine tests show 0 to 60 times of 3.9 seconds for the DCT-equipped models. While the E92 M3 still delivers plenty of power to keep its owners happy, the design of the car is slightly outdated and requires a bit of freshening up. This is where aftermarket aero parts come in.

Vorsteiner BMW E92 M3 on Flow Forged V-FF 103 carbon graphite wheels

This BMW E92 M3 features Vorsteiner made Carbon Graphite V-FF 103 wheels in a staggered 19×9.5 front and 19×10.5 rear fitment using a concave profile. Also fitted to this E92 are Vorsteiner’s GTRS7 front bumper, GTS-V rear diffuser, and coupe boot lid.

The Unlim 500+ drag races held just 2 hours north of Moscow, Russia, have brought together the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG, BMW M6 and Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. A requirement of the cars participating is that they all create a minimum of 500 hp, which sets up some amazing showdowns. One of the requirements was for the event organizers to shortened the track from one mile to one kilometer to increase safety. Each of the three contenders had some extensive work done underneath the hood. The BMW M6 Coupe now produces 800 horsepower thanks to an Evotech Stage 3 kit, while the C63 AMG puts down 700 horsepower with the Morendi-Weistec upgrade. The Chevy Corvette has the most power, 900 hp.

German tuning shop Carbon Fiber Dynamics has given the BMW 1M a complete carbon fiber makeover. The tuning house has created a small carbon fiber kit for the “baby-M” which consists of a front spoiler, front splitter, rear diffuser, rear spoiler lip and a carbon fiber roof. Furthermore, the 1M now features the M3-signature powerdome hood along with functional air vents for additional cooling capability. A new set of black wheels were also fitted to the car, along with the BMW M Performance black kidney grille. Other updates to the car include a lowering spring kit, sport exhaust system and the Long Beach Blue paint job.

Carbonfiber-Dynamics-BMW-1er-M-Coupe-Tuning-01

No updates on a power upgrade, but judging by the new powerdome, we expect the little M car to pack at least 400 horsepower, easily achievable by remapping the ECU.
