As a follow up from last week's M5 preview videos, here is some additional raw footage running almost 30 minutes. In addition to some soothing static shots and commentary from test drivers Bernd Limmer and Frank Lutz, there are some nice driving scenes taken from numerous view points both inside and out.
BMW will reportedly premiere the M5 Concept at a private press event near Munich on April 1st followed by its public debut at Auto Shanghai a few weeks later.
But for now, grab a cup of your favorite warm beverage and enjoy the video.

2012 BMW 6-Series Coupe revealed
BMW has unveiled the 6-Series coupe, ahead of its debut at Auto Shanghai
Designed to be the ultimate "dream car," the coupe features a "shark nose"
front-end with bi-xenon headlights and a forward-slanting grille. Further
back, the profile boasts frameless windows, chrome accents, and a C-pillar
with the distinctive Hofmeister kink. Lastly, in the rear, there's a dual
Exhaust system, LED tail lights, and a
trunk lid with an integrated spoiler.
Inside, the cabin is awash with high quality materials and premium
amenities. Highlights include Dakota leather seats, high-gloss black trim
(brushed aluminum and wood trim are also available), a freestanding 7-inch
iDrive display and a spacious boot which can hold up to 460 liters (16.24
cubic feet) of luggage. On the options list, customers can order heated /
ventilated seats, a panoramic sunroof, a Bang & Olufsen audio system, and
GPS navigation with an upgraded 10.2-inch display.
In the tech department, the car offers a head-up display, a rear-view
camera, night vision assist (with pedestrian recognition), parking assist,
and a lane departure / lane change warning system.
At launch, two engines will be available. The 640i features a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six that develops
315 hp (235 kW / 320 PS) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque. When paired to
an eight-speed automatic transmission, the car accelerates from 0-100 km/h
in 5.4 seconds and has a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). Despite the
impressive performance, the engine is relatively frugal as the average fuel
consumption is 7.7 L/100km (36.7 mpg imp / 30.5 mpg US) and CO2 emissions
are 179 g/km.
On the other hand, the 650i has a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 with 402 hp (300 kW / 407 PS)
and 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the coupe to run from 0-100
km/h in 4.9 seconds, before hitting a limited top speed of 250 km/h (155
mph). Furthermore, owners can expect to average 10.4 L/100km (27.2 mpg imp
/ 22.6 mpg US) and have CO2 emissions of 243 g/km.
Pricing information hasn't been released, but the redesigned model will go
on sale in the United States this fall.
High-res photo album:
BMW TwinPower Turbo Engines CGI animation
BMW has released a fancy CGI animation promo for their BMW
EfficientDynamics engine family featuring TwinPower turbo.
The video starts off with an android of sorts virtually building an engine.
It goes on to demonstrate BMW's "Perfect Cylinder" combustion via turbo, Valvetronic and direct injection
Now this is where things get interesting as the android continues to build
a four cylinder engine mounted in a vehicle's engine bay longitudinally.
BMW loyalists might want to look away at this part as the android then
takes another 4-cylinder turbo and
mounts it transversely. This indicates a front wheel drive vehicle, which
BMW has already announced, but not without an apprehensive response from
purists. They fear the move will dilute BMW's ability to make cars with
great driving dynamics - a characteristic the BMW brand has become known
The video continues with the modular engine being expanded to 6-cylinder
and then it's cut in half as a 3-cylinder and fitted to a new smaller
vehicle presumably the upcoming i3.
2012 BMW M5 preview video - long cut (German lang.)
Without showing the full monty BMW has just released a very solid
preview/teaser video of the fifth generation BMW M5 sedan internally known
as the F10M.
Previous reports have mentioned an M5 concept debuting at the Shanghai Auto
Show next month. Judging by the depth and frequency of these teaser videos
Shanghai is very possible, although it could be mixed signals for the BMW
5-Series New Energy Vehicle coming through. If the M5 is a no show in
Shanghai, then the Frankfurt motor show in September is a sure bet.
Motivating the M5 is same twin-turbo
4.4-litre V8 found in the BMW X5 M and X6 M. Power output however is
expectedly increased to 600 PS (441 kW / 592 bhp) over the SAV's 555 PS
(547 bhp / 408 kW). Channeling the power down to the wheels is a
seven-speed DCT dual clutch transmission featuring three shift programs in
addition to a fully automatic mode.
According to Evo Magazine, who sampled a test prototype recently, the
steering, suspension and drivetrain have three modes: comfort, sport and
sport-plus. Furthermore, the MDM (M Driving Mode) raises the threshold of
DSC intervention - perfect for those who want more control but still some
backup. For those who want full control can switch it off completely giving
unadulterated access to a 600 horsepower rear-wheel-drive
In the video the BMW M5 prototype is driven by test drivers Bernd Limmer
and Frank Lutz in the Alps. Limmer speaks about the M5 driving capabilities
under different driving conditions such as driving on snow. In discussing
M-Dynamic-Mode, the M5 suspension, Limmer demonstrates the DSC-System by
stopping and taking off on an uphill slope (taking foot off the brake pedal
and pushing the accelerator). Test driver Frank Lutz shows us how they
measure cold starts with a laptop.
2012 Audi A6 promo
Essentially a sedan version of the A7 Sportback, the redesigned A6 has a
conservative design that features LED taillights, an integrated trunk-lid
spoiler, a dual Exhaust system, and
optional LED headlights. If that isn't expressive enough, the optional
S-Line package adds modified bumpers, a sport suspension, a faux rear
diffuser, and 19-inch alloy wheels.
Inside, the cabin offers additional interior room as the car's wheelbase
has been stretched to measure 2910mm long. While that is certainly nice,
we're rather impressed by the cockpit's fashionable styling and high-tech
goodies such as a 1,300-watt Bang & Olufsen audio system and MMI navigation
plus with internet connectivity.
Under the hood, five different engines will be available at launch. The
most efficient is a 2.0 TDI which has an average fuel consumption rating of
4.9 L/100 km (48.00 US mpg) and C02 emissions of 129 g/km. It produces 130
kW (177 PS) and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque, which allows the car to
accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 8.7 seconds and top out at 228 km/h (142
On the other hand, the new 3.0 TDI V6 produces 150 kW (204 PS) and 400 Nm
(295 lb-ft) of torque. This enables the car to dash from 0-100 km/h in 7.2
seconds, before topping out at 240 km/h (149 mph). With this particular
engine, expect an average fuel consumption of 5.2 L/100 km and CO2
emissions of 137 g/km.
Moving further up, a second version of the 3.0 TDI churns out 180 kW (245
PS) and 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque. It lets the A6 sprint from 0-100 km/h
in 6.1 seconds, before hitting a limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
The average fuel consumption registers 6.0 L/100km and CO2 emissions are
On the petrol side, there's a naturally-aspirated 2.8 FSI V6 with 150 kW
(204 PS) and 280 Nm (207 lb-ft) of torque. Paired to a multitronic
transmission, the engine allows the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in
7.7 seconds and hit a top speed of 240 km/h (149 mph). It consumes 7.4
L/100 km (31.79 US mpg) and emits 172 grams of CO2 per km.
Lastly, the 3.0 TFSI V6 cranks out 220 kW (300 PS) and 440 Nm (325 lb-ft)
of torque. This enables the car to run from 0-100 km/h in 5.5 seconds and
hit an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). In terms of
efficiency, expect 8.2 L/100 km (26.68 US mpg) and CO2 emissions of 190
If those options haven't tickled your fancy, Audi will eventually launch a
hybrid variant that uses a 155 kW (211 PS / 208 hp) 2.0 TFSI petrol engine
and a 33 kW (45 PS / 44 hp) electric motor. Boasting a combined output of
180 kW (245 PS / 241 hp) and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque, the car
accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 7.3 seconds and hits a top speed of 238 km/h
(148 mph). Owing to its mediocre performance, the car is expected to have
an average fuel consumption of 6.2 L/100 km (38 US mpg) and CO2 emissions
of 142 g/km.
The 2012 Audi A6 will go on sale shortly and German prices start at

EXPEDITION CAP NORD EN BMW R 1200 GS ADVENTURE by Lolo
Le Cap Nord a moto en plein hiver, ça revient un peu à s'enquiller une
piste de bobsleigh de 4.500 km de long tout en passant 12 jours dans un
congélateur. Mais ce fut aussi et surtout une fabuleuse expédition au
fin fond de la Norvège à bord de la BMW R 1200 GS Adventure.
