Two images of the brand new, mostly facelifted, BMW X5 just hit the web. I think it looks kind of nice though! We found the images on CBT.com.
And I think they are right in their description of the looks: “it sports the nose of the current 3-series, body of the X3, and tail of the X1.”
The BMW Vision EfficientDynamics is a really cool concept that looks like something from a science fiction movie (remember the Audi concept from ‘I am Robot’?). And even though it’s capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds and having a top speed 250 km/h it has a fuel consumption in the EU test cycle 3.76 litres/100 km. Check out more images and info inside.
It was quite a long time since we saw some interesting news from the BMW owned company MINI but now today they presented a really cool concept car – the MINI Coupé Concept. It will be officially presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month but already today we can give you the details and some photos.
The BMW 760Li 2010 model is a really nice and interesting machine, mainly because it’s a big luxury car but with true sports car performance. The engine is a 6.0-liter twin-turbo V-12 which delivers 535 bhp which makes this car as fast as a BMW M5. Check out the driving impressions from Road and track:

You can’t really see the difference when you compare the new 2008 BMW 5 series to the 2007 edition, the visual updates are really minor. Instead we got a whole new range of engines starting with the 528i. But anyway here’s a nice gallery of the new 5 series 2008 edition.

If you’re bored with the performance of your BMW Mini Cooper then this might be something for you. It’s a hybrid version of a Mini using a small gasonline engine combined with four small electric engines on all the wheels, which gives the car the ability to top 150 mph and accellerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds.
