The E60 generation M5 introduced the world to BMW’s first (and only) production V10 powerplant, inspired by the V10 engine used in the BMW Sauber Formula 1 car.

There are few cars that will match the E46 M3 performance per dollar ratio. Not just few cars, probably none. This E46 M3 hits 60mph in about 4.7 seconds and trips the 1/4 mile lights at 13.5 seconds and 105 mph. In case you were wondering, that is fast for a street car. But it […]
The E46 generation M3 was built from 2001-2006 and BMW sold a staggering 85,000 of the screaming coupes around the world. The sedan versions of the M3 seem to skip generations and the E46 was only available as a coupe or convertible, but it was equipped with a screaming 8,000 rpm capable inline six cylinder […]
