I knew it was only a matter of time until the reveal of the facelift of the BMW 5-Series, and like i said before the changes are very small. But to compensate for the lack of big news, the German brand has added a few new things that make this car a bit more interesting.

BMW just can not keep a secret their new cars, or in this case, a facelift. Yesterday, we got to see the upcoming 2-Series, and today we have another image showing the improved 5-Series. This car is rumored to be revealed to the world next week, but do not expect to see major changes.

For those of you who still do not know it, BMW will launch the 2-Series lineup, which will replace the 1-series coupe and convertible, but it won't look like the current 1-Series. What we have here are the best pictures we have seen of the M235i, which is the car that will replace the 1M.

In March, we had already seen the facelift of the BMW 5 Series during a photo shoot. A few days ago, the German brand inadvertently revealed the 2014 model in the brand's online configurator, and today a few images appeared from China showing, with a better quality, fresh images of this improved car.
BMW announced yesterday that it joined Pininfarina in creating this unique model, called Gran Lusso Coupe, and that it will show it to the global public on 24 May, during the 2013 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. Accompanying this announcement, BMW revealed three teasers, that don't really show a lot of the car.

That is right, for the last fifteen years BMW provided the official Safety Cars for the MotoGP, and to celebrate that we will see for the first time in public the recently introduced BMW M6 Gran Coupe. And that will happen in then opening round of the 2013 season at the Losail International Circuit in Qatar.

This was unexpected. We knew that BMW sooner or later was going to release the X4, but it was somewhat surprising to see that a few minutes ago five images of the concept appeared online. If there is something that we know about BMW is that their concepts are usually very similar to the production models, so now we can get a good idea of how the final version will look like.

BMW seems to take less time to reveal the facelifts of their cars. This time we get to see pictures of the BMW 5-Series (F10) in what seems to be a photo shoot for the new model. Changes are small but includes the look of the car and some mechanical parts. We could even see it at the New York International Auto Show.

To be true it wasn't completely revealed but we get to see several of the main aspects of the upcoming rival for the Mercedes B-Class. In these patent drawings we can clearly see the shape of the taillights and headlamps, which look a lot like ones in the Active Sports Tourer Concept (pictured above) shown last year, and the shape of the front bumper, rear panels and the trunk/boot door. See those images below.

The pictures do look real and are similar to what we had already seen in spy photos. The Gran Turismo has, like the 5-Series, a higher and larger rear section that will take some time to fully appreciate it, and while we didn't expect any changes in the front it features an updated grille and new bumpers.

This is a little confusing. BMW sold Husqvarna, the Swedish born company, to Pierer Industries which is owned by Stefan Pierer, the current president of KTM. But Pierer is the majority shareholder of India's Bajaj Automotive, which owns a little over 47% of Cross Industries. And Cross Industries is the parent company of KTM.

Wunderlich, which is the American distributor for German aftermarket parts, joined BMW Motorcycles of San Francisco to create this amazing beast. And why is it called "MadUSA" (pictured above)? Wunderlich first created the Mad Max (pictured below), which had Continental TKC 80, in Germany, but to sell it in the States they kept the Mad and added the USA for an obvious reason.

There are several design companies in the world and many more individuals doing they private sketches envisioning what a car should look like, but most of them are really bad and don't deserve much attention. This concept looks pretty good. It is different from what BMW is doing at the moment but you immediately recognize it as a BMW.

The challenge taken by the BMW Motorrad development department was pretty big, they had to make the previous GS, which is the most successful travel enduro in the world with 170.000 units sold, even better, and they believe they did it. Check the video below.

The Minis were always FWD, but BMW has earned a reputation building RWD cars with spectacular handling and performance since the very beginning in 1929 with the 3/15 DA-2, but now things will change and we have found out that BMW will have 12 cars with front wheel drive and Mini 11.
