BMW have always been a big fan and supporter of concept cars. They love the damn things, and these last few years have been no different. With the recent demand for economical and ‘green’ motoring, BMW have been forced to go down the route of miles per gallon, but does that mean they won’t be giving us cars that still fondle down below? Of course they won’t! The German’s have thankfully kept their priorities in order – just with a few amendments like turbo engines instead of naturally-aspirated ones – and with a whole host of new concepts, we thought it would be a good idea to look at some of the best that BMW never put into production.

The original, beautiful, over-priced M1 was the blueprint for all modern M-cars. Without that first flop – sales wise – the new BMW M5 would not be the car it is today. The M1 was a lovely looking car, technically brilliant and as quick as Gandhi in slippers, but it was ridiculously expensive compared to its rivals, and as a result, nobody bought one. BMW learned their lesson, and since then we’ve had incredible M-cars – much like this 2011 M1 re-make. Unfortunately, BMW won’t be putting this new M1 into production, which makes us sad, because, well, look at it. Have you ever seen such an aggressive piece of styling? It’s like a hybrid between an MMA fighter and Bronson. BMW GINA

The GINA was designed by then chief of design Chris Bangle, and it was produced to stand as a visual cue for BMW’s designers to draw and take inspiration from for future BMW designs. Interestingly, the GINA isn’t made from plastic, steel or fibreglass; it’s made entirely from fabric – apart from the engine, obviously. So, the chances are fabric won’t become the next carbon fibre, but it’s different; that’s for sure. The GINA sits on the same platform as the old Z8 Roadster – which was never any good – and features a two-seat layout. Bangle claimed that the GINA’s fabric shell could be seen on production models in a decade – just make sure you don’t live in an area where youths have car keys on them, because we all know what would happen. BMW 328 Hommage

The Greatest BMW Concept Cars Never Produced

  Have you ever seen such a beautiful BMW? The 328 Hommage is very unlikely to ever hit production, which is not only a shame, but a damn disgrace. Look at the thing; it’s absolute stunning from every angle, and proof that car manufacturers need to get some dangly bits and put some concepts through to production. The ethos behind the 328 is lightweight construction, and it represents a homage – hence the name – to the old Mille Miglia racer of the olden days.  Build it, BMW; do it for the world!

BMW, build this car! You released this concept in 2007, and yet we still haven’t seen it on our roads – why? Why!!! It’s automotive porn. Any money-owning human with eyes would buy this car, it’s that good looking. OK, so BMW probably won’t listen to the aforementioned paragraph, but you can’t deny the CS’s style and aggression. This should have been the car that the new 6-Series was designed from.

Yep, that’s right; BMW did build this car. It’s not a joke. It’s not some type of sick practical joke that the Bavarians pulled on the world – unfortunately. It’s hard to imagine what type of person would want a 414 bhp BMW M3 Pickup on their drive, but there must be someone, because BMW didn’t just build this concept for the crack. We’re praying this doesn’t make it into production – perhaps only in Australia, eh, BMW?

Based on the 7 Series platform, BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupe showcases the collaboration between BMW and Pininfarina bring to the Gran Lusso Coupe. The concept features an imposing stance and elegant design lines and has the typical long wheelbase, stretched bonnet and set-back greenhouse. This has been one of the most exclusive and luxurious concepts BMW has ever built and while there is hope that some of the design elements will make it into the next 7 Series, the odds of this Gran Lusso Coupe to get into production are pretty slim. A shame, nonetheless! The article The Greatest BMW Concept Cars Never Produced appeared first on BMW BLOG

Turner Motorsport, the team that runs the only BMW Z4 GTD in the United SportsCar Championship, will celebrate a special milestone at Circuit of the Americas in this weekend’s Lone Star Le Mans race.  It enters its 300th professional start with a BMW.

The car, driven by Dane Cameron and Markus Palttalla, will race with the number 300 instead of its regular number 94 on its distinctive blue and yellow  livery. This season the team has been successful in the GTD class of the USCC with four wins. It currently leads the team competition, while America’s Cameron is one of four drivers leading the points rankings. Over the past 16 years it has won 75 races for BMW in six sports car championships. Team owner, Will Turner, commented: “Saturday will certainly be a great day for Turner Motorsport. Three hundred races with BMW is something I am extremely proud of and I hope it will be an important one towards another championship.”

Infiniti has confirmed to TopGear.com that in 2015 will unveil a two-door coupe to take on the BMW 4 Series. Shiro Nakamura, chief creative officer of Infiniti and senior VP of Nissan, told TG his plans to take on the BMW 4 Series. “I want to make a two-door coupe. It’s coming, you’ll see it within one year. It’ll be a production version, a little bit bigger than a BMW 4-Series, but not as big as a 6-Series,” he said.

Infiniti’s new BMW Series coupe rival is coming

Infiniti Q50 shown here “As you know, always our sizes are a little bit in between BMW’s sizes. Look at the Q50, that’s between the 3-Series and 5-Series,” he added. Furthermore, Shiro noted how the two-door coupe would take design elements and cues from the upcoming Paris Motor Show concept, the Q80. The shift in strategy comes after former Infiniti boss Johan de Nysschen only last year noted how he wanted the brand to remain exclusive, how “we don’t want an Infiniti on every single driveway”. READ ALSO: BMW Exec gets the Infiniti CEO job Shiro is looking in the other directions. “We need volume,” he says. “Otherwise you cannot invest. We’re hoping the Q30 will bring big volume, particularly from Europe and China, because it’s the most affordable Infiniti. Without volume you can’t do anything. This industry is so tough. “Aston Martin for example, can be niche because they’re expensive cars, but we cannot price ourselves any higher than Mercedes-Benz (on whose A-Class platform the new Q30 hatch sits),” Shiro added. The Infiniti Q80 will be launched next year and a halo performance based of it could follow as well. The article Infiniti’s new BMW Series coupe rival is coming appeared first on BMW BLOG

Carbon fiber originated for aerospace use, but as it has become more usable this material expanded into the automotive industry.  It has several properties that make it a superior product for so many automotive applications.  Properties such as high rigidity, tensile strength, chemical resistance,  temperature tolerance, and with a low weight and thermal expansion. Carbon Fiber is a material that consisted of thousands of carbon atom fibers in diameters of 5 to 10 micrometers.  In order for RW Carbon to produce carbon fiber products like front lip spoilers, rear diffusers, trunk spoilers, trunks, hood and many more, the carbon atom crystals must be bonded together in a symmetrical and parallel pattern.  This alignment gives the carbon fiber its strength and the ability to be lightweight.  Thousands to millions of these carbon fibers are bundled together to form carbon fabric. From there a mold must be made of the desired aero piece.  In order to form your favorite carbon fiber parts and accessories, resin must be added to the carbon fabric and then molded.  When a perfect mixture/ratio of carbon fabric and resin is used the parts become extremely rigid and take on a very high strength-to-weight-ratio. Strength- to-Weight-Ratio: Every carbon fiber aero part that is designed has its own special number of layers of fibers to create a perfect ratio of strength, weight and stiffness.  This is why carbon fiber is so limitless when it comes to the design aspect.  Metal on the other hand is more limited on the shape it can provide.  Carbon fiber composites typically weigh a quarter of the weight of steel, but has the same amount of rigidity, making it 4 times as stiff on a weight-to-weight basis. To many potential carbon fiber buyers, determining why a particular type of carbon fiber is used over another can be quite confusing. Lets first break down the different categories of Carbon Fiber Woven Fabrics. 1. 2×2 Twill Weave The 2×2 twill weave is by far the most common carbon fiber fabric used in the automotive industry. This fabric type follows a distinct diagonal pattern. When you think about a 2×2 carbon weave look at it as a pattern that goes over two intersecting warps and under two (hence why it is called 2×2). This makes the fabric more pliable and looser. That means it can be applied more easily because it can be stretched to curves and contours with fewer complications. However, this also means the applicator needs to handle the weave more carefully than a plain or 1×1 weave as it is simple to leave slight distortions in the weave.

A Guide to Understanding Carbon Fiber Weaves and Fabrics

2. Plain (1×1) Weave The plain or 1×1 weave is the second most used fabric type in the auto industry. As you would expect it is given its name (1×1) because it looks more like a checker board where the weave pattern goes up one and down one. Plain weave is then a tighter knit fabric and is easier to handle without making any distortions. On the down side the tighter weave makes it more difficult to drape the fabric over the mold; making this type a second favorite choice for most manufacturers.

A Guide to Understanding Carbon Fiber Weaves and Fabrics

RW Carbon offers both carbon fiber weaves in certain items we sell.  The majority of products only come in 2×2 twill weave but for our BMW M3 and M6 owners we offer 1×1 or 2×2 which give them the option to match their carbon fiber roof. Other or Less Common Weaves The majority of carbon fiber parts and accessories are made using these two types of weaves mentioned above. However, there are others out there such as: Satin weave, harness weave, fish weave and unidirectional. All of these are just different weave patterns for carbon fabric. In almost every automotive application 1×1 or 2×2 weave is superior in looks and construction which is why you rarely will hear these other weave types. Only custom or unusual carbon fiber requests will require weaves like these. Unidirectional weave is where almost every fiber is aligned in the same direction. This kind of weave is only held together by the occasional strand of either carbon or polyester running across the fibers at a 90 degree angle. This kind of carbon fiber is best used where all the force is aligned in one direction, such as in an archery bow and arrow. Unidirectional Carbon Weave

A Guide to Understanding Carbon Fiber Weaves and Fabrics

So which weave pattern makes for the strongest fabric? Contrary to popular belief, the 1×1 or plain weave is actually weaker then the 2×2 or a 4 harness satin weave (4×4). This is because as the carbon fibers are put under strain or tension, the fibers want to pull straight but cannot due to the repeat of the pattern. Each fiber is forced over and under one another. Therefore, that tension will eventually shear apart the fabric, leaving a 2×2 with more tensile strength than a plain weave. Now that you have an understanding of carbon fiber weave types, next is to discuss the major types of carbon fiber cloths. In the auto industry there are 2 popular types of cloth, wet and dry prepreg. 1. Wet Prepreg Cloth Wet pregreg cloth is the most popular method for carbon fiber Front Lip Spoilers, Rear Diffusers and Trunks because it tends to be easier to manufacturer.  All that is needed is a precisely measured amount of resin or epoxy that is then poured over the fabric, making the fabric “wet”.

A Guide to Understanding Carbon Fiber Weaves and Fabrics

2. Dry Prepreg Cloth The dry prepreg cloth or otherwise known as “Dry Carbon” is very similar to wet prepreg as they both utilize resin or epoxy to adhere the fabric. However, unlike the wet version, the epoxy used for this cloth type has dry properties and is impregnated into the cloth. This step guarantees there is no excess epoxy, which gives it that “Dry” appearance. However, it makes the cloth sticker when at room temperature, which requires further steps to complete. This is why dry carbon parts and accessories tend to be more expensive when compared to wet carbon cloth. Once the aero parts are molded it requires baking for several hours at a temperature of 250 degrees fahrenheit. This is because it will not cure in room temperature.

A Guide to Understanding Carbon Fiber Weaves and Fabrics

Why would I pay more for a Dry Carbon Aero Piece? The answer is quite simple.  Dry carbon is able to create the same tensile strength as wet carbon fiber but it weighs substantially less.  So for all your auto enthusiast looking to track your car and shed some weight, dry carbon is a must!

Marco Wittmann was crowned Drivers’ Champion at the Lausitzring, but there are still two titles up for grabs when the DTM season enters the finishing straight in Zandvoort next weekend.

The title race is in full swing in both the Manufacturers’ and the Team competitions. With this in mind, the BMW Motorsport teams and drivers have their sights set on scoring as many points as possible at the “Circuit Park Zandvoort”, in order to defend the leads currently held by BMW Team RMG and BMW. Stefan Reinhold’s team, which includes the new DTM champion in Wittmann, currently tops the Team standings with 167 points. In the Manufacturers’ Championship, BMW leads with 320 points. Last season, the race in Zandvoort proved to be successful for BMW Motorsport. Wittmann, at the wheel of the Ice-Watch BMW M3 DTM, claimed the first pole position of his DTM career in qualifying. He then went on to clock the fastest lap during the race, setting a time of 1:32.296 minutes on his sixth lap of the 4.307-kilometre circuit in the Dutch sand dunes. The winner at the “Circuit Park” was fellow BMW driver Augusto Farfus. He produced an outstanding display in front of 41,000 spectators to clinch the 50th win in the history of the DTM for the BMW M3. Zandvoort is one of the BMW drivers’ favourite circuits. The reason for this is the characteristic of the circuit: the tricky hills, crests and bumps make a lap of the “Circuit Park” akin to a rollercoaster ride. The location, nestled in the dunes on the North Sea coast, is also unique. Zandvoort has stepped in to replace the race initially scheduled to take place in China, when the event originally planned for this weekend, in Guangzhou, had to be cancelled.

Some weeks ago, we wrote about a Sapphire Black BMW M6 with a full Vorsteiner kit and wheels, and today, we have the chance to show you another build, a cleanly modded BMW M6 Gran Coupe with a custom aero kit, wheels and an exhaust system. Considered by many a fashion statement, ordering a 6 Series Gran Coupe is the way to go if you need the added usability of a four-door vehicle, while keeping in touch with design lines and performance of a Coupe vehicle.

Cleanly Modded BMW M6 Gran Coupe On Avantgarde Wheels

The BMW M6 Gran Coupe seen here is painted in the Space Gray Metallic finish and features the 4.4-liter BMW M TwinPower Turbo V-8, 32-valve 560-hp engine. The power unit combines an M TwinScroll turbocharger with variable valve control (Double-VANOS and Valvetronic) and high-precision direct injection. All of these adds up to a performance car that sprints from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in 4.1 seconds, thanks to a 7-speed M Double Clutch Transmission (M DCT) with Drivelogic technology.
