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.

Yes, German brand's successors to the US-market coupe and convertible have one-upped the old car to wear the 2 Series designation now, but in other markets, our No. 1 crush still lives on, and as evidenced in these spy shots, the entry-level hatch appears to be undergoing a modest facelift. We've spotted prototypes of the re ...

Sidi Traffic Air USA Boots Review

Aug 22 2014 11:12pm CDT | Source: Ultimate Motorcycling

Sidi Traffic Air USA Boots Test Summer heat can be tough on your feet and Sidi Traffic Air USA boots are successful at offering relief. A mid-height boot with minimal armor, this is footwear about airflow. The Lorica outer is perforated, as is the Teflon-treated nylon lining, so plenty of air flows through these boots, even at low speeds in urban traffic. However, to get the most out of the Sidi Traff ...

“M Initiation”: 2015 BMW M4 Drifts Through M History in Rad Video

BMW seems big on drifting these days (so are we, for the record), as evidenced by last month’s “The Epic Driftmob” video featuring the M235i Coupe and this new spot for the new M4 called “M Initiation.” The video features the M4 sliding in very close proximity to other M cars of various vintages, churning up nimbus clouds of tire smoke, before it takes its spot at the end of a formation that depicts t ...

Street Bikes – 30 Years of High Performance Motorcycles | Rider’s Library

Aug 22 2014 2:34pm CDT | Source: Ultimate Motorcycling

Motorcycle Library Retro Review From the 1960s to the mid-1990s, some of the most interesting and commanding high-performance street motorcycles were built. They came from Britain, the U.S., Japan, Italy and Germany. Most of them helped define the motorcycle as it is today, at least in one respect or another; a couple redefined high performance itself. Taken together they helped create what is today called the Superbike. By t ...

The 2015 BMW M4 carries on a long tradition of fun-to-drive German sports coupes, even if it wears a slightly different badge. But does it really belong in the company of cars like the E30, the E36, and the E92 M3? It does now. Drifting around an assembly of 37 enthusiast-owned BMW M3s of previous generations—arranged rather c ...
