BMW i8 sports hybrid gets wild track outing

BMW i8 sports hybrid gets wild track outing

Now that BMW's i3 production car has broken cover, the German company has moved onto arguably more exciting things: namely throwing the BMW i8 around a track in France for some performance testing. Shown off in Spyder concept form back at the LA Auto Show in November 2012, the slinky hybrid borrows the plug-in eco-friendliness of its boxy i3 sibling, but cranks up the performance for a sub-4.5s 0-62mph dash and a top speed limited to 155mph.

BMW i3′s cure for range anxiety is a gas-guzzler on demand

BMW isn't counting on brand cachet and outlandish styling to sell the new i3 EV, with the "range-extender" gas generator option getting an even more fossil-fuel-reliant companion in the shape of access to a loaner X5 SUV. The backup option, which BMW will market as an "add-on mobility" feature Bloomberg reports, will effectively offer i3 converts access to the more traditionally powered X5 for a number of weeks each year.

BMW has officially revealed the production BMW i3, the company's first i-Series electric car for the market, a carbon-fiber clad urban vehicle set to reach roads from November. Based on the i3 concept first shown off in early 2011, the new i3 will manage 80-100 miles on a full charge in its cheapest $41,350 form, though a hybrid-style version with a compact two-cylinder engine will effectively double that for an extra $1,150.

BMW M5 Nighthawk cranks M5 up to crazy

BMW M5 Nighthawk cranks M5 up to crazy

BMW's M5 already has a reputation as the company's most extreme sedan, but the Germans have turned up the "ultimate driving experience" settings another notch for the M5 Nighthawk, a super-limited special edition especially for the Japanese market. Squeezing 575 HP out of the M5's 4.4-liter V8 M TwinPower Turbo engine - 15 HP more than the "regular" car - the Nighthawk edition is good for a ridiculous 4.2s 0-62 mph dash (shaving an all-important 0.1s off the standard M5) while looking fit for the Yakuza.

ASRock M8 gaming PC appears with BMW design cred

The last time we saw BMW get into the gaming PC market was way back in 2009 with the Thermaltake Level 10 case. It was certainly a beauty, and something that we've quite never seen before. However, BMW is back again with something new, and it's a complete gaming PC for ASRock. It's called the M8, and it's different from the Level 10 in the sense that it actually looks like a traditional gaming PC this time around, but it comes with some unique features.
