Both founded in the 1920s, BMW Motorrad and Belstaff are two tradition-steeped brands that have built their success on premium quality, high-tech materials and distinctive design. It is perhaps surprising that the two style-setting companies took so long before deciding to work together, but if the Spring/Summer 2015 collection recently presented at Milan men’s fashion […]

BMW Team RLL Finish 6th and 7th at the Brickyard Grand Prix

Woodcliff Lake, N.J. – July 25, 2014 . . . Despite both BMW Team RLL Z4 GTLM machines showing speed in practice and taking their turn leading today’s Brickyard Grand Prix, the 2.75-hour race ended with neither car reaching the Indianapolis Mo...

Woodcliff Lake, N.J. – July 25, 2014 . . . Despite both BMW Team RLL Z4 GTLM machines showing speed in practice and taking their turn leading today’s Brickyard Grand Prix, the 2.75-hour race ended with neither car reaching the Indianapolis Motor Speedway podium. Round Seven of the 2014 TUDOR United SportsCar Championship, the first race of the new sports car series held at the 2.435-mile, 14-turn Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course, was a dramatic affair. Contact from the extremely close competition ultimately slowed both BMWs, relegating them to sixth and seventh place finishes. After beginning the season with four consecutive podium finishes, the last three races have seen a best finish of fourth (Round Six, CTMP, 4th, No. 56). Bill Auberlen and Andy Priaulx finished sixth in the No. 55 BMW Z4 GTLM. Priaulx started the race from the fifth position and quickly moved up to third, then second, but dropped to tenth after being forced to the pits for damage to the rear of the car after contact with a prototype car. Needing less fuel because of his early stop, the race’s third caution period saw him cycle to the front of the GTLM field. A difficult restart dropped him to eighth before pitting to give Auberlen the wheel. The Californian quickly regained two positions and held the position for the remainder of the race to finish sixth. Download the entire newsletter.

Z-Performance wheels and Quadcopters Drones paired up to bring us an exciting video of two exciting BMWs on an equally exciting road.

Two BMWs drifting on one of the most impressive roads in the world

The Transfăgărășan (trans (over, across) + Făgăraș) or DN7C is the second-highest paved road in Romania. Also known as Ceaușescu’s Folly, it was built as a strategic military route, the 90 km of twists and turns run north to south across the tallest sections of the Southern Carpathians, between the highest peak in the country, Moldoveanu, and the second highest, Negoiu. The road connects the historic regions of Transylvania and Wallachia, and the cities of Sibiu and Pitești. In September 2009 the cast and crew of the British television show Top Gear were seen filming along the road. The segment appeared in the first episode of Series 14 which first aired November 15, 2009. They were in the country on a grand tour with an Aston Martin DBS V12 Volante, Ferrari California and a Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Spyder. Host Jeremy Clarkson went on to declare the Transfăgărășan as “the best road in the world” – a title that the presenters previously gave to the Stelvio Pass in Italy. The video below not only showcases their drifting skills and the amazing E30, but it also offers some memorable views of the mountain road.

Another BMW M4 Coupe ends up in a car accident. After we’ve seen a totaled M4 in Munich, now another one goes in a ditch somewhere in France. Not many details are known about the accidents and judging by the two shots below the M4 doesn’t seem to have been completely damaged. While the M engineers describe the M3/M4 as one of the easiest M models to drift, they also mention the danger that comes from a more powerful and lighter car than its predecessor. The 2015 BMW M4 is powered by a twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline-six which makes 425 hp and 406 lb-ft. That’s barely up from the last-gen M3′s peak 414 hp, but up significantly in the torque department.

BMW M4 Coupe ends up in a ditch

From 0-100 km/h (0-62), the 2014 BMW M4 runs in 4.1 seconds with DCT while the M3 runs the same distance in 4.3 seconds, with the same transmission.
