The BMW iM2 Concept is a Driver-Centered Electric Fantasy

So we should probably get this out of the way right from the get-go: While all concept cars are fantasy to a degree, the BMW iM2 Concept is more fantastical than most. Because this pocket rocket’s lines didn’t even come from BMW, but rather the studio of Mexican artist David Olivares. Like much great art — and for the record, we do think these renderings are great — this was a product of great pain. In this case, that pain was born of BMW M Division chief Frank van Meel’s admission that the…

Here’s What the 2018 Lexus LC 500 Production Line Looks Like

Lexus released photos from the production line of its stunning new LC 500, and the images showcase the meticulous attention to detail the company is taking with its new grand tourer. The battery of LED lighting is designed to ensure any flaws are magnified, and the stark white environs of the Motomachi Plant look more like a clean room than an automotive line. Fittingly, many of the hands assembling the new coupe previously worked on the company’s last halo car, the legendary LFA. Lexus refers to them as takumi, or “artisans,” and…

Dodge Demon Will Likely Sell for MSRP, Purchase Requires Signing Use Contract

The Dodge Demon has been a subject of automotive adulation since it was just rumor and innuendo. And after Ma Mopar revealed its latest creation will be an 840-horsepower drag strip monster that’ll run the quarter mile in a blistering 9.65 seconds, enthusiasts have been losing their collective minds. Because in an era when everything seems to be about hybrid powertrains and fuel-sipping efficiency, the very idea of car purpose built to straight terrorize the tarmac seems — please pardon the disparate analogy — like manna from heaven. But as it turns out?…

The 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE Just Set a Blistering ‘Ring Time

Here’s a quick question: What’s the difference between the Camaro ZL1 LE and the Ferrari 488 GTB? If you said about $175,000, you’d be right. But there’s another key difference — and it’s one that has to have the engineers in Maranello fuming. Because the weapons-grade Bow Tie is faster around Germany’s notorious Nürburgring than Ferrari’s latest mid-engine V-8 exotic. Now, it’s important to note that being quick around what Formula 1 legend Jackie Stewart famously dubbed the “The Green Hell” doesn’t carry any official weight. It’s not an award from J.D….

Latest BMW 8-Series Spotted Testing: Convertible, V-8 and V-12 Options Coming

We last saw a BMW 8-Series in 1999, when the company ceased production of the luxury grand tourer. But the concept unveiled during this year’s Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este at Lake Como confirmed the model is coming back, and now there’s a new spy video of engineers performing some cold weather testing. Now it’s hardly a sure thing, because car companies often file for trademarks they have no intention of using. But given that original models were available with V-8 and V-12 power, we don’t expect the Bavarians aren’t going to camp…
