With its all-electric i3 urban car hitting the road in 2013, BMW is now going bigger – much bigger. The Bavarian automotive giant has just announced that as part of a one-year pilot project, a 40-ton (36-tonne) all-electric drive truck will begin making deliveries on public roads in Munich from mid-year.  Read More

Top sale honors for the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance week went to the 1960 Ferrari 40...

Countless make and model records were broken at all three of the Amelia Island Concours elite collectible car auctions on the weekend, with a 1960 Ferrari 400 Superamerica SWB Cabriolet fetching US$6,380,000 and becoming one of the top 100 cars ever sold at auction, 23 cars selling for more than a million (RM-Sothebys 13, Gooding seven and Bonhams three), and $101 million worth of cars sold in three days. Testimony to the buoyancy of the market were the sell-through rates – Bonhams 78 percent, Gooding 89 percent and RM-Sotheby's 98 percent.  Read More

BMW's 2015 S1000RR features active suspension as part of an extraordinary suite of technol...

The first edition S1000RR superbike saved my butt (and my passenger's) in a big way back in 2011, when this spectacular bit of video captured the moment a wide-running pickup ran me off the road and onto the gravel. It's only fair that we give the 2015 version the opportunity to save my butt as well, although perhaps this time with a larger safety margin. So we lined up an S1000RR at Philip Island, one of the world's fastest racetracks, and I went out and rode it as fast as I dared. And as impressive as the performance of this 199-horsepower monster is, even more impressive was the way its ingenious safety and ride assist systems prevented me from making a fool and a bum-up lawn ornament out of myself, time and time again.  Read More

The BMW X5 xDrive40e is practical as well as efficient

BMW has chosen a variant of its X5 SUV to be its first plug-in hybrid production car. Although this might seem a bit of an odd choice, the BMW X5 xDrive40e has lots of trick engineering slickly packaged in a vehicle that could bring plug-in hybrid technology to a wider potential audience than if it was used in a sedan or a sports car.  Read More

The Lexus GS F is powered by a naturally aspirated V8

Recent months have proven prolific for makers of fast luxury sedans, with Cadillac unveiling its twin-turbocharged 185 mph ATS-V and supercharged 200 mph CTS-V. Now Lexus continues to challenge its reputation for sensible, staid cars with the announcement of the high-performance GS F.  Read More

BMW is testing its Remote Valet Parking system, using its i3 research vehicle

Trawling a multi-story car-park and then squeezing into a parking space can be a painstaking task. It would be much better if you could just drive into a car-park and leave your vehicle to do the rest. Well, that's exactly what BMW says its Remote Valet Parking system will let you do.  Read More

BMW is taking the technology it developed for the i3 and i8, and looking to roll it out as...

BMW is doubling down on its electric eDrive technology by announcing that it plans to eventually produce plug-in hybrid versions of all its core-brand models. The electrification process will start with the presentation of a 3 series prototype, as well as a group of plug-in hybrid concepts that can get around town on battery power alone, but that can also burn some dinosaur bones if you need to take a longer trip. The new BMW hybrid concepts will be presented in Miramar, France.  Read More
