The BMW X5 seen here has been adorned with a set of Vossen wheels. The end result are two interesting SUVs that rarely go to the tuning shop. The subtle addition of aftermarket wheels certainly gives the X5 a more aggressive stance without changing the overall look. These Vossen VFS1 and VFS2 wheel models come with a gold and a matte graphite finish and can be ordered in 20 and 22 inch sizes. The wheels were built with the flow forming process which maintains the integrity of the design, while also improving the grain-structure of the aluminum, creating a stronger, lighter, and considerably thinner forged-like rim barrel.

BMW X5 On Vossen Wheels Photoshoot

At the front, the F15 X5 takes design elements from F30 3 Series, while in the back it’s similar to other current X series models. The interior stands out with its arge LED screen and premium materials used in every part of the car’s interior mixed together with sporty design elements, like the stitching, sports seats and a sports steering wheel seen on this particular model. The exterior, designed by BMW designer Mark Johnson, was approved in November 2010 and production finalized in 2011 allowing the first units to head to customers in late 2013. You can access the additional images from this photoshoot in the media gallery we’ve added below. Enjoy!

Released last year at the SEMA show, the Vorsteiner BMW GTRS4 Widebody aero program for the BMW M4 gets a new photoshoot. Featuring a body kit made entirely from carbon fiber, the GTRS4 takes the sportiness of the M4 to a new level. Just as any proper aftermarket project, the GTRS4 by Vorsteiner also requires a set of custom made forged wheels in order to achieve the width needed. After the Austin Yellow company project, additional GTRS4 projects are built together with other tuning shops. In this instance, Vorsteiner worked with Elite Custom Performance from Texas in order to create a stunning Yas Marina Blue BMW M4 build with the exact aero program installed.

Vorsteiner Yas Marina Blue GTRS4 Widebody Photoshoot

The Vorsteiner GTRS4 aero program consists of a Carbon Front Bumper, Side Blades, Fenders, Quarter Panels, a Rear Bumper and Vorsteiner custom made forged three-piece wheels finished in Sakhir Orange. The result is a staggering showcase of wideness, quality craftsmanship and an impressive widebody look for the BMW M4.

Mercedes-Benz brings the big guns at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. The new Mercedes-Maybach S-Class Pullman has a length of 6.5 meters and rises above the ordinary S-Class long-wheelbase version of the same house by more than a meter. Even the Rolls-Royce Phantom Extended Wheelbase is about 40 inches shorter. Sold under the Maybach sub-brand, the S-Class Pullman promises maximum luxury, comfort and sophistication in every respect. Although the Maybach offshoot of the S-Class does not directly compete with the highly exclusive luxury brands such as Bentley or Rolls-Royce, the car promises a similar level of luxury at a lower price.

At the Geneva Motor Show 2015, the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class S600 Pullman is presented with a 12-cylinder engine, as the only alternative to the weaker V8 biturbo S500. See live photos from Geneva showcasing the S-Class Pullman:

As part of its world premiere, the new BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer is introduced at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show with the M Sport Package. Together with, the once reserved for particularly sporty BMWs, Estoril Blue Metallic color, perhaps the most practical of BMW of all time looks quite dynamic, despite the minivan proportions. The car also features 18-inch alloy wheels double spoke 486 M – both the color and the wheels are only available for M Sport models. Like all BMW M Sport Packages, the one found on the BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer comes with M aerodynamics parts, like the modified aprons and sills. Large air intakes shape the front bumper and the kidney grille is painted in high-gloss black. At the rear, a contrasting diffuser emphasizes the width of the vehicle while the tailpipe trims in high gloss chrome complete the sporty look.

The second BMW 1 Series Facelift model displayed in Geneva comes with the Urban Line. The Advantage, Sport Line, Urban Line and M Sport packages are available as an alternative to standard specification providing fresh scope for targeted individualization. The sporty compact hatch builds atop the success of the somewhat controversial pre-facelifted model and comes to market to challenge the likes of Audi A3 and Mercedes-Benz A-Class. While the 1 Series Hatch is still a non-US affair, the excitement around the new facelift remains high. Karim Habib’s design team has been hard at work trying to correct some of the design shortcomings of the previous generation and deliver on their promise of creating both emotional and premium cars.

BMW-1er-Facelift-Dreitürer-F21-LCI-120d-xDrive-Urban-Line-2015-Autosalon-Genf-LIVE-01-09

The great changes of the light units are not typical of BMW facelifts in recent years and without a question it suggests that BMW has learned from the feedback received on the previous model.  The headlights have been heavily revised and are now slimmer, more angular and with a sporty eyebrow that gives the front-end a more unified look.

BMW-1er-Facelift-Dreitürer-F21-LCI-120d-xDrive-Urban-Line-2015-Autosalon-Genf-LIVE-01-03

The two-part taillights are the next big change on the 1 Series Facelift. They now feature floating LED tubes inside the lights giving the car a more dynamic look from behind. The revised tailgate comes to complete the new butt design. A newly designed BMW kidney grille and larger air intakes remind us that the 1 Series is a serious hot hatch ready to take on any competitors.

BMW-1er-Facelift-Dreitürer-F21-LCI-120d-xDrive-Urban-Line-2015-Autosalon-Genf-LIVE-01-02

Despite the changes, the BMW 1 Series 2015 remains independent and optically not too close to the BMW 2 Series family. The new 3-door and 5-door BMW 1 Series models also come with a comprehensively revised engine line-up and additional measures designed to reduce fuel consumption and emissions, allowing them to lead the way once again in the introduction of new BMW EfficientDynamics technology.

BMW-1er-Facelift-Dreitürer-F21-LCI-120d-xDrive-Urban-Line-2015-Autosalon-Genf-LIVE-01-17

The 1 Series BMW now comes with a selection of five petrol and five diesel engine options. With petrol engines, only the BMW M135i is now offered with xDrive, while the diesel engines provide the solution with the BMW 120d xDrive and BMW 118d xDrive, packing the needed punch in both power and torque in the new 1 Series models. The market launch for the new 1 Series Facelift is set for March 28, 2015 with entry level BMW 116i (109 hp) priced at 22,950 euros. The five-door hatch with the three cylinder petrol is priced at 23,700 euros.

BMW-1er-Facelift-Dreitürer-F21-LCI-120d-xDrive-Urban-Line-2015-Autosalon-Genf-LIVE-01-22

In general, the extra charge for the five-door is 750 euro, regardless of the engine. The three-cylinder (B37) powered BMW 116d, which is available from the end of March also will go for 26,200 euros.
