BMW readying competition pack for M5, M6

Thu, 25 Apr 2013 09:29:00 EST

According to Car and Driver, citing a report in BMW Blog, BMW will be offering performance upgrades — likely called the Competition package — for its M5 and M6 models (including the convertible and Gran Coupe versions of the M6). Both cars will continue to be offered with the normal 560-horsepower, 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engines, but this new performance pack is expected to add an additional 15 hp to the mix.

No need to worry, however — the upgrades won’t simply be limited to a small boost in power. These M5 and M6 models will reportedly get new wheels, black exhaust tips, a more direct steering ratio and reworked suspension geometry which will provide better overall handling. Top speed is said to remain governed at 190 miles per hour, but that these extra improvements will shave one-tenth of a second off the cars’ 0-60 times.

No pricing information has been revealed as of this writing, though we imagine it’ll likely come at a substantial cost over the current starting prices of the M5 and M6 ($90,200 and $108,350, respectively).

BMW Concept Active Tourer Outdoor enjoys a day in the sun

Wed, 10 Jul 2013 18:00:00 EST

This BMW Concept Active Tourer has evolved for the nature and cycling set and premiered at OutDoor Friedrichshafen, a trade fair in held this month in Germany. The sturdy wagon is tweaked with new materials, accessories and ConnectedDrive features for those who do a lot of their living under the sky as opposed to inside their cars.

Under the hood is the same plug-in hybrid drive system we’ve were introduced to in 2012, featuring a transversely-mounted, 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine paired with an electric motor and a battery pack under the rear compartment floor. Total output is 190 horsepower and 147 pound-feet of torque headed to the front wheels, a claimed time from zero to 62 of under eight seconds, a pure electric range of up to 19 miles, a top speed of 124 miles per hour and claimed fuel economy of around 95 US miles per gallon.

The space behind the rear seats is the showcase, with a transformable compartment that can stow two bikes on built-in, retractable carriers. Remove the front wheel and seat from the bikes, then the frames can be locked into place using two rails and brackets. The wheels can be stowed in a holder attached to the right rear seat, the saddles can go into a compartment in the load floor.

If you need to make a quick adjustment or a fix, you can do so since the bikes are aligned across the load bay.

BMW X4 M probably not in the cards

BMW is preparing to exploit its latest market niche — those that find themselves unable to choose between the 3 Series, 4 Series and X3 — with the X4. If you’re looking for an M product, though, you’ll remain limited to the 3 and 4 Series. BMW’s Bernhard Ederer, at the Australian launch of the X5, told Car Advice he wouldn’t bet on it, when asked about a hotter X4.

Oddly, Ederer’s reasoning, according to the Aussies, is out of concern for the X6 M, whose sales the X4 M would apparently cannibalize. That’s like saying the M3 doesn’t make sense because it will cannibalize M5 sales — the logic just doesn’t really hold up. The question is what customers are we talking to?

And are we talking to someone that is willing and able to afford [an X6 M]? Ederer told Car Advice.

Car Advice seems to feel the same way, claiming the X3-based X4 will share its powertrains with its donor platform, and will eventually spawn an M variant, albeit a few years down the line.
