As if performance car fans didn’t already have plenty to be excited about with the announcement of the new 2019 BMW M2 Competition Coupe, BMW Blog is now speculating that a track-ready racing version of the M2 Competition is on the way. While we’re still waiting on a lot of specific details, a new BMW M2 racer would make 2019 an incredible year for BMW fans of all sorts.

The forthcoming 2019 BMW M2 Competition Coupe is itself a powerfully inspiring, undeniably stunning performance car, packing 405 horsepower thanks to an advanced twin turbocharging system and next-generation drivetrain engineering. With 0-60 mph acceleration in just 4.0 seconds, the 2019 BMW M2 Competition Coupe will be anything but a slouch on the track.

The rumored BMW M2 racer, however, would take things even further. BMW Blog is guessing that the M division at BMW might even fine-tune the 3.0-liter twin-turbo engine to around 470 horsepower, a substantial increase from the road variant.

Additionally, the racing version would probably sport a stripped out interior, adjustable suspension, more aerodynamic construction, and enhanced brake components for handling the stress of circuit racing. If the new BMW M2 racer does roll out soon, it would likely replace the existing M240i Racing Cup.

BMW Unveils Thrilling 2020 Alpina B7

2020 BMW Alpina B7 | BMW of Fort Wayne | Fort Wayne, IN

If you love all things big, bold, and powerful, then you are going to absolutely adore the 2020 Alpina B7 recently unveiled by BMW. This full-size luxury sedan does so much more than just look amazing. It will knock your socks off, too.

Underneath the hood is a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine rated at 600 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. This is enough power for the B7 to reach 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds. It also boasts a top speed of 205 mph. Compared to the previous B7 model, this new version is 12 mph faster at top speed.

To maintain its precision performance, the car will automatically lower itself by 0.6 inches when travelling at speeds over 140 mph. This helps lower the center of gravity. On the other hand, its air suspension can lift the car by 0.8 inches for increased ground clearance, when needed.

The B7 comes standard with beautiful 20-inch Alpina Classis wheels, but a larger 21-inch set is available. That set is made from high-strength, high-density aluminum.

Inside, passengers will enjoy a supremely quiet ride thanks to additional insulation and shielding. In addition to the front windshield, laminated glass is also used on the side and rear windows.

BMW Introduces First-Ever 2020 X3 M and X4 M

BMW Introduces First-Ever 2020 X3 M and X4 M | Fort Wayne, IN

On February 12th, BMW introduced the first-ever 2020 X3 M and X4 M, adding two new vehicles to its M lineup. The BMW M lineup is full of high-performing vehicles that are both street and track-capable, and with the addition of the new 2020 X3 M Sports Activity Vehicle and 2020 X4 M Sports Activity Coupe, the lineup just got even better.

The 2020 X3 M and X4 M will feature a standard, high-revving S58 3.0-liter six-cylinder M TwinPower Turbo engine that delivers a whopping 473 horsepower and up to 442 lb-ft of torque. For the most daring at heart, you’ll can opt for the 503 horsepower Competition version of these vehicles. Both advanced engines combine innovative design features, such as a rigid closed-deck design, two mono-scroll turbochargers, and a 3D-printed cylinder head.

The fierce X3 M and X4 M will be able to achieve 0 to 60 mph in a mere 4.1 seconds while the Competition models shave off an additional 0.1 seconds. The models will have an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph, which increases to 174 mph with the M Driver’s Package and 177 mph on Competition models. The vehicles wouldn’t hold the BMW name if they didn’t offer unparalleled driving dynamics, delivering class-leading handling and refined comfort alongside their breathtaking performance.

We’re excited at BMW of Fort Wayne for the two new additions to the legendary M lineup. If you’d like to stay up to date on information regarding the 2020 X3 M and X4 M, call or subscribe to our newsletter.
