BMW i3 Review - Auto Express

BMW i3 review: http://bit.ly/16gv70B Subscribe to our YouTube channel http://bit.ly/11Ad1j1 Subscribe to the mag http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/yt The BMW i3 is unlike any other BMW we've driven before - it's all electric, has a body built from carbon fibre and is the smallest vehicle in the current 'i' line-up. The unique carbon fibre body never ceases to amaze us. It stops the car from flexing too much in the bends and it's resulted in a really low overall weight - the BMW i3 weighs in at just 1195kg, making it 300kgs lighter than the Nissan LEAF. There's no need for a B-pillar as the body is so rigid, meaning accessibility is great. The steering is nice and direct with just a hint of feedback - generally, it's a lot of fun. Albeit the roads on Amsterdam aren't the best dynamic test, but it's worth mentioning that even with all the torque from the electric motor and some skinny low grip tyres, it's not easy to do big slides. But the torque does come in handy - 0-63mph takes just 7.2 seconds, which is Renaultsport Clio territory. We drove the top-spec i3 with the Suite interior trim which is a perfect, futuristic design for this type of car. A special sat-nav comes as standard - this can direct you to a recharging point within the remaining range. Speaking of, the BMW i3 is supposed to be capable of covering 125 miles on a single charge (but that's in super-efficient ECOPRO+ mode). In the world of electric cars, the BMW i3 is definitely a class contender. It's not one of the cheapest options out there - the one we drove cost £25,860 - but it's highly desirable; a true BMW.

BMW i8 review - the new king of supercars?
The BMW i8 is a game-changing hybrid super car that makes the Audi R8 and Porsche 911 feel and look dated. Read the full review: http://bit.ly/1o38PDU Subscribe to our YouTube channel http://bit.ly/11Ad1j1 Subscribe to the mag http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/yt The BMW i8 can trace its roots back to the Vision Efficient Dynamics Concept from the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. After four years of technical workshops and concepts, BMW confirmed it would build that car and five years later, it arrived in the form of the i8. The design of the BMW i8 is absolutely incredible and it's a surprise to see how much of the concept's design that the BMW has managed to keep. There's a really nice cut-out in the bonnet which comes in a contrasting colour to the body and at the back, there are a pair of elegant flying C-Pillars. The most striking feature of the BMW i8 however, is its upward opening scissor doors. The BMW i8 is powered by three power-sources. A 129bhp engine driving the front wheels, a 227bhp three-cylinder driving the rears, and another small Boosting electric motor, which works as a generator. The BMW i8 also has a huge battery pack, which allows for 22 miles of range. Surprisingly though, the BMW i8 still weighs 70kg less than an Audi R8, which comes as a result of its high-tech carbon fibre body and aluminium chassis. It can also hit 0-62mph in 4.4-seconds. Driving on the electric motor, the BMW i8 feels Volkswagen Golf GTI fast, but if you put your foot down while going up a hill, the three-cylinder kicks in. It sounds really good - pretty similar to the throaty six-cylinder in the Porsche 911. To make the BMW i8 come fully alive, though, you need to put it in 'Sport' mode. This keeps the turbocharged three-cylinder engine running, as well as the electric motors. It basically gives you everything that this car has got. The engine sounds even better, and because you've got the electric motor giving you that instant shove, it feels fast. As soon as it starts to get a bit inefficient, the engine kicks in. You might expect a surging, stepped acceleration from the BMW i8, but it's really smooth. These figures are better than a Toyota Prius, a Yaris Hybrid and almost any other eco car you can think of. The BMW i8 is really nice to drive, and what you notice more than anything else, is that it feels really light on its feet. All that carbon fibre really seems to have done the trick. If you're expecting the BMW i8 to be an M Car, then don't. It's not a big oversteering brute, it's much more clinical than that and gets a character all of its own. The steering on the BMW i8 is really nice and light, plus you get a really crisp turn-in. When the back tyres are starting to lose traction, the fronts will come in and drag you out thanks to its four-wheel drive system. It's really forgiving, but not quite as sharp as a 911 maybe. However, it's different and it's something immensely likeable. The BMW i8 comes with a £100,000 price-tag - similar to a Porsche 911 or an Audi R8 - but what's amazing is how much tech you get for that. Obviously there's the carbon-fibre body, three power-trains and four-wheel drive, but there are even options such as laser headlamps. The BMW i8 makes the Audi R8 and 911 feel a bit old, but the Porsche is still sharper. What's clear though, is that BMW has definitely done enough to keep Audi and all other sports car manufacturers on their toes.

So far, we've only driven it on smooth tarmac in Ibiza, but now it's time for its real test -- on potholed city roads in the UK. Our test car is a top-spec Technic model, which adds 'luxuries' such as 13-inch alloys and carbon-look plastic on the roof and dash. The scissor doors are an extra £545, but are a must- have option for keeping your feet dry. Whichever way you look at it, this is a back-to-basics machine.





BMW M4 vs Audi RS5: epic track battle
We test the BMW M4 against the benchmark setting fast coupe, the Audi RS5. BMW M4 review: http://bit.ly/1lb81cD Audi RS5 review: http://bit.ly/1nD11rN Subscribe to our YouTube channel http://bit.ly/11Ad1j1 Subscribe to the mag http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/yt The arrival of a new BMW M car is always big news for performance car fans, and the new M4 is no exception. Costing almost £60,000, the replacement for the legendary old BMW M3, the M4 has moved away from the V8 power plant in the old car, and is now powered by a 425bhp twin-turbocharged straight-six engine. Meanwhile, the similarly prices Audi RS5 is propelled by a 4.0-litre V8, which produces 430bhp. It's also mated to the Audi quattro four-wheel drive system. Like the BMW, it also features a dual-clutch gearbox, the Audi S tronic system. There's no denying the Audi lacks the fun factor of the BMW - the quattro four-wheel-drive system prevents the lurid powerslides than you can really go for in the M4. You can also feel the weight of the engine over the front axle in the RS5, but it certainly doesn't feel slow at all. Overall then, the RS5 feels very punchy, and the gearshift is also really nice - the same can be said for its V8 soundtrack. It's not a track machine though, and the car from Neckarsulm is more of a very stable and very rapid cruiser. Meanwhile, the BMW M4 feels very raw and very serious, especially when all the settings are put at their sportiest via the M1 switch on the steering wheel. These also turn the traction control and stability control off. With no electronic aids, the M4 is always trying to get its tail out. However, the body control is amazing, but there is a feeling that it's all a bit artificial. The same can be said for the engine note, which has been enhanced. The M4 is a proper M car though, and something BMW can be truly proud of. It set a lap time of 1m09.9s, compared to the 1m12.2s set by the Audi - that's 2.3s quicker.





BMW i3 - is this the world's most desirable affordable electric car?
There may be disquiet about its gentle rate of climb, but the electric car has, at last, taken off. The BMW i3 is leading the charge. Could it really be better in the real world than the Tesla Model S? SUBSCRIBE to Autocar: http://smarturl.it/autocar BMW, along with Tesla, is doing what looked impossible a few years ago. Electric cars are finally becoming desirable. Maybe it took the power of a couple of premium brands to help them on the way. Or maybe it's the radical looks and carbonfibre structure of the BMW i3? Either way, EVs are here to stay. And if the BMW i3 is anything to go by, they're here to be enjoyed, rather than endured.

(ENG) BMW i3 - First Drive, Test Drive and Review
BMW is launching its long-awaited first mass-produced electric model: the i3. It is the first car from a new series, designed to appeal to a new target group. The i3 has a theoretical range of around 150-160 kilometers, but in real life 120-130 seems more manageable. The car can also be equipped with an optional petrol range extender. However unlike most other electric cars, BMW i3 is fast and relatively fun to drive on European roads. It might not be the Isetta everyone thought it would be, but this could be the future of mobility. On 17 April BMW i3 received two awards: - 2014 World Car Design of the Year - 2014 World Green Car as part of the World Car of the Year (WCOTY) programme.

2014 BMW M5 Competition vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S Model! - Head 2 Head Ep. 44
On this episode of Head 2 Head Jonny Lieberman is joined by Mike Shaffer and two extremely potent hyper sedans, the 2014 BMW M5 Competition and the 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S Model. Between the two of them, these two mighty Germans produce 1152horsepower and 1092 pound-feet of torque. On paper. After a day of horsing around/testing Shaffer and Lieberman grow suspicious of each twin-turbo V-8's actual output. So, they take them to the Dyno gurus at K&N engineering to learn what's what. The results very well may shock and amaze you. However, the boys come to the conclusion that numbers are only exactly that: only numbers, and numbers only matter so much. One true test of a super sedan is how it handles a twisting stretch of tarmac. The other is how much you yearn for the car after you've walked away from it. How much the keys itch in your pocket. While the results are definitive, this Head 2 Head is much closer than most. Have a watch!
