BMW Z4 Roadster

BMW M1 concept

 

The photos on this page show a new copper-colored BMW M1 concept, the photos were snapped up first from Asphalte.ch and these are the same people that gave us a sneak peak at the Lamborghini LP560-4 earlier in 2008. These photos were of the BMW M1 concept at Villa d'Este; they show the super car on its own and with its forebears.

As you can see, the BMW M1 concept has a flowing, smooth design with "a low brow, high haunches and the signature kidney grille". The M1 is part of Bimmer's 30th anniversary celebration of Munich's original classic supercar, while these photos are from a private exhibition that took place today, we should be hearing more news within the next 24 hours when an official Press Release becomes available.

2009 BMW Z4 - leaked official images

Although we should get all the details and official images on the BMW Z4 on Monday, we can't resist showing some scanned images from the leaked sales material. The tease we got from the first leaked brochure scan did not show the moneymaker: the evilly cool front. BMW has exercised many of the original Z4's Bangle demons. The first Z4 almost tried to look like old money with a face that looked it was trying to turn up its nose at everyone. This one has an intimidating and shark-like look (...)

On a motor show in Essen debuted the graceful compartment Brabham Racing BT 92 executed on the basis of BMW M3. The car have equipped with a set of external details from carbon fiber, 20-inch cast wheel disks with carbon inserts, sports final system, exclusive elements of an interior and highly effective brakes. Judging by the images kindly given by our Dutch colleagues from site Autoblog.nl, it has as a result turned out very much even the quite good car. In the meantime it was found out that all – including organizers of a motor show – considered that name Brabham Racing directly is connected with a legend of the Australian races by sir Jack Brebhemom (Sir Jack Brabham). Now it has appeared that this German company has no relation neither to triple champion Formuly-1, nor to its racing command. On the site sir Brebhem has let out an official statement asserting that «no communication between a family of Brebhem and production exposed on the European motor show, is present». According to Associated Press information, Jack Brebhem and his family are going to submit the claim against company Brabham Racing.
