BMW M-Coupe vs Audi TT Coupe - With Richard Hammond
Richard Hammond puts two van drivers to the test - Brian Walshaw and Carl
Harrison, as they take two of the most popular and powerful roadsters for a
spin - an Audi TT and a BMW M-Coupe. They both find out how the car's
perform and handle, as well as how stylish and practical they are. The
M-Coupe has a menacing 3.2 litre engine, which produces around 325bhp, a
top speed of 155mph and a 0-60 time of just 5.5 seconds. The TT Coupe,
however, has an engine which produces 225bhp, but with it's quattro,
four-wheel drive system, it makes the TT a more nimble and more agile

BMW M1: The Forgotten Supercar - XCAR

BMW only ever made one proper supercar: The M1. It's a slice of rare
automotive legend and one that we had to have a deeper look at. Caution:
features porno music and velvet.
When you think of 70's supercars you tend to think of Lamborghinis and
Ferraris - big, wedgy things that make a lovely noise and go very quickly
indeed. You don't tend to think of BMW, do you?
We can't blame you for that. It's a brand that isn't really synonymous with
supercars. Fast saloons, yes, but a supercar? Well, in the late 70's BMW
did indeed produce a supercar, the M1. Very few were made and its
development is fraught with delays, financial troubles and moving goal
It's such a shame that the M1 didn't do as well as it could and should
have. It lasted from 1978 - 1981, not a huge amount of time in anyone's
book, and while it was around it was supposed to have been racing its
little socks off on the track. Instead, BMW was trying to sell enough of
them in order to qualify to enter the races thanks to a rule change at the
last minute that meant a certain number of cars had to be sold before they
It was also supposed to be around a lot sooner than it was. A deal made
with Lamborghini to produce the car went more sour than a pint of double
cream left in a kiln and BMW very nearly ended up without a car at all.
It's a wonderful thing, though. The big, red monster we had created such a
presence wherever it went that even though driving with the windows open
was a necessity (no air con, naturally, and heat leaking into the cabin
caused me to sweat so much I lost 2lbs) and the heckles, shouts and
endless "Which Ferrari's that, mate?" didn't half drive me mad.
Driving it in the countryside was good fun, though its width and, erm,
older controls made passing trucks, busses and the like a bit of a
nightmare. Driving it in town, however, was a different experience. Tight
London side roads and suicyclists make driving a behemoth such as the M1 a
dicier proposition than it would have been when it was new.
Even though it's giant, unknown and difficult to pilot the BMW M1 was truly
special. It was a car that so few know about yet its fans utterly adore (we
met a guy while shooting who went weak at the knees when he saw it), it's a
very special beast. If you see one, just remember this: It's not a

BMW Intelligent Headlight Technology
First introduced on the new BMW 7 Series (July 2012) as part of the
optional Adaptive LED Headlights, this functionality is now also supported
with Xenon headlights on all new BMW 3 Series Saloon and Touring models
specified with a Visibility package.
BMW Adaptive Headlights are combined with BMW High-beam Assistant
technology to provide an intelligent headlight system that optimises the
illumination of the road ahead without glaring on-coming traffic and other
road users. This ensures improved visibility and safety during night time
and poor weather driving conditions.
