Car will offer hints at what the new M4 will look like

BMW fans will be able to get a glimpse of what the new M4 will look like at Pebble Beach next month in California. BMW reportedly plans to show off a 435i fitted with BMW M Performance upgrades that make it look very similar to the next generation M4.

The official unveiling for the M4 coupe and the M3 sedan will be next January. The M4 and M3 are expected to go on sale in the UK in the summer of 2014. BMW has said that the new M4 uses 80% different parts compared to the normal 435i.

The M4 will use a new modular engine, a seven-speed twin-clutch gear box, and an overhauled suspension. The new M4 will also use carbon fiber bodywork to help reduce weight. BMW has also previously announced that it will not offer an all-wheel-drive M4 because the all-wheel-drive system would add too much weight.

Tucked beneath a canopy of tower cranes in Seattle's booming South Lake Union neighborhood stands a single-story office building that houses Glympse, a 5-year-old internet startup with a laser focus on answering one question: Where the heck are you? Related: Texting-While-Driving Consequences Vary by State Not the existential, where-are-you-in-life sort of query, but the more practical where are you and when will you get here. And there lays the in-car potential. Glympse, ...

Mercedes-Benz has kindly let loose the price of the 2015 GLA-Class, telling Autoblog.com that the base 208-horsepower GLA250 in two-wheel drive will go for $31,300 *not including a destination charge of $925.

24 Hours of LeMons Chicago: The Winners!

Jul 28 2014 10:36pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

For the 24 Hours of LeMons’ fifth visit to the Autobahn Country Club in Joliet, Illinois, we started things off with inspections of some strange-O engine-swapped machinery on Friday, then ran one long race session that started on Saturday morning and finished at midnight. With the lack of a break between sessions, mechanical problems tended to knock cars out of contention for class leads but heightened a near-panic-stricken sense of urgency among the teams ...
