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.

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
Volvo C30 Electric tested in rough winter conditions
The Volvo C30 Electric has been exposed to rough winter conditions in order
to ensure that the battery-powered car runs smoothly in temperatures as low
as -20° Celsius.
Volvo Cars' requirements on the C30 Electric are just as stringent as on
all other Volvo models and the battery-powered car is exposed to the same
test regime. On top of this, several new test methods have been developed
for the electric vehicles. All in all, over 200 different tests have been
"We must ensure that the C30 Electric performs as intended when driving,
parking and charging in a variety of conditions, from normal to very cold
or hot. Northern Sweden is the perfect place to do sub-zero temperature
testing," says Lennart Stegland, director of Volvo Cars' Special Vehicles.
The Volvo C30 Electric is equipped with three climate systems:
* One supplies the passengers with heating or cooling.
* One cools or warms the battery pack as necessary.
* The electric motor and power electronics are water-cooled.
Bio-ethanol powered heater
The C30 Electric has a innovative solution that makes it possible to get
comfortable heating in cold winter conditions without compromising the
battery driving range.
Climate control in the passenger compartment takes place via a bio-ethanol
powered heater fitted in all cars. The car's ethanol tank can carry 14.5
litres of bio-ethanol.
It is also possible to run the climate unit on electricity from the
batteries. In electric mode an immersion heater warms up the coolant in the
"The driver can program and control the climate unit to suit the trip.
Ethanol is the default mode that is used when the battery capacity is
needed for driving extend mobility to its maximum. However, on shorter
distances electricity can be used to power the climate system," explains
