I really want BMW to make one of these.
BMWs for everyone!
So, you've probably seen someone drift a car before. But what about two cars at the same time?
It's true that BMWs are great driving machines, but have you ever considered alternative uses? It looks like someone chopped off the trunk of an older E32 7 series and turned it into a grill.
The name BMW usually conjures up images of fast cars driven by hipsters and powerful motorcycles, but lately they've been showing us their greener side. The latest concept in this push is the i Pedelec, a folding electric bike for city commuters.
We were head over heels when BMW showed off its electric i3 SUV and hybrid i8 coupe last summer and we're even more in love with its latest creation. The i8 Spyder is a convertible that loses the roof, two seats and stows two little surprises in its glass trunk, while maintaining the sporty and sleek look of the original i8.
We've seen plenty of concepts for self-driving cars, but now BMW has thrown their hat into the ring. Best of all, instead of showing off their car in the relative safety of a test track, they've gone for one of the most challenging driving environments in the world, the speed limit free German Autobahn.
Devices that check whether you're too drunk to drive are nothing new, but now a group of German researchers want to take that type of driver assessment a step further. Their smart steering wheel constantly checks the driver's vital signs, looking for any indicators of a pending medical emergency.
After nearly a century of working to make their cars ever more refined, it looks like BMW has finally gone too far. That's because the new 2012 M5 has a feature that actually plays recorded engine sounds through the car's stereo system, as a "discreet soundtrack in keeping with the harmonious and assured characteristics of the V8 powerplant."
BWM is has a fine reputation in the world of four-wheels, but the company is looking to reinvent itself by deploying a new take on the motorcycle, and it's not just green energy friendly, it's actually kinda sexy.
