  • Lamborghini Aventador J

    Lamborghini confirmed it will continue to develop and offer bespoke one-off cars like the Aventador J and limited production Sesto Elemento. A new prototype and concept development center has opened at the automaker's headquarters in Sant'Agata, Italy, and will be responsible for many of the new beauties. We've spied the M3's replacement testing all over Europe and in the U.S. too. There will be sedan, coupe, and convertible variants available when the M3 replacement launches, though BMW is looking to differentiate coupe and sedan models by using a different naming structure this time around...

    The BMW 1-Series M Coupe is a very well-balanced and downright quick car in its own right, fresh off the factory floor. But it's also a great platform for improvement and modification, and we're looking forward to seeing what the aftermarket, especially the crafty independents, will do with it. AC...

    The 2011 BMW 1-Series M Coupe has been BMW's worst-kept secret of the past year, with official "spy" photos and even a video preview of the car in its entirety spoiling some of the fun of today's official unveiling. The fun of the car, however, is sure to remain intact. Packing a now-familiar 335-horsepower, twin-turbo variant of BMW's venerable N54 inline six-cylinder engine also found in the 335is, the M Coupe isn't quite as powerful as some rumors had hoped, but it still has plenty of punch when coupled with its other M Division upgrades. Torque comes in at 332 pound-feet from 1,500 rpm to...
