The BMW Z4 Concept Gives Us a Look at the Next Great German Roadster

 

Today, BMW unveiled a conceptual version of its long-awaited Z4 roadster at Pebble Beach, giving us an idea of ​​what the future of a two-seater passenger will look like in the future. Covered in a frozen paint "Vigorous Orange", the car has many new styling features that are likely to fall into the production version, which should appear in 2018.
Designers of BMW decided to apply for the front part a shape similar to ahernozu, modeling around a wedge that extends to the windshield. Unlike traditional BMW headlights, the two halos on both sides are stacked vertically, rather than horizontally, pushing them to the edge of the car. Wide air intakes and the proprietary grille of the BMW kidney occupy the rest of the fascia, and 20-inch alloy wheels sit on all four corners.

Instead of using self-contained web rods, the designers installed two silver domes behind the seat to improve the car's profile and double the roll protection

Instead of using self-contained web rods, the designers installed two silver domes behind the seat to improve the car's profile and double the protection from the roll. The rear of the car is smoothed compared to the previous generation with long L-shaped tail lights, dual exhausts and vertical air outlets at both ends.

Inside, the Z4 concept looks almost ready for production, with a driver-oriented layout, a cluster of digital calibrations, a display with a head up and a set of very red paddle shifters. The black paint on the driver's side is divided on the passenger side, where the materials use the same orange exterior shade. If this is not yet clear, this car is aimed at driving experience, and not much more.
Also worth mentioning is that this car probably shares the chassis with the upcoming Toyota Supra. The Z4 concept will be demonstrated during the weekend at Pebble Beach along with the concept of the BMW 8 Series, which was shown back in May.

BMW Is Apparently Cooking Up a Competition Package for the M2


For some time we know that the CS version of the BMW M2 is already ready, and that maybe GTS 444-hp, but now it sounds as if there is one more option. Our colleagues from Car and Driver noticed in the leaked document that BMW is planning a package of competitions for the M2.

The document found on SupraMkV.com does not provide any details about the M2 Competition Package, except that it will be offered in the US and Europe using manual and automatic transmissions. Currently, BMW offers a competition package for the M3, M4 and M6, which gives these cars more power and improved chassis tuning. Previous versions of M3 and M5 can also be ordered using a package of competitions.

The competitive M2 package will be placed between the standard car and the long-awaited M2 CS for price and performance, as in the case of the current M4. For the M3 and M4 coupe, the competition package costs $ 4,750, and for the M4 convertible it costs $ 500 less.

This leaked document also shows that BMW is working on the next-generation M Performance version of the 3-Series, the M340i. The M340i will join the M240i, M550i xDrive and M760i in the BMW lineup of not quite hardcore M cars that compete with the Mercedes-AMG 43 and Audi S.

We heard that the M2 CS will start in the spring of 2018, but there is not a word, neither official nor the other, when other options debut.

The New Corvette ZR1 Sounds Amazing

 

According to rumors, the Corvette ZR1 debuted at the recent IMSA race in Road America. That did not happen; The prototypes still work around the Nürburgring, which is engaged in the final development. This video, from YouTuber Carspotter Jeroen, does not reveal anything new about the ZR1, but it's still a funny look. Just listen to everything that drives the rage of V8.

The car seen here is equipped with odd left tailpipes, which we saw in other ZR1 sports games. These pipes seem to help Chevy bypass the noise rules at the Nurburgring, but despite this, the ZR1 seems to be generally lacking.

This car has more than two wings, which we saw on the prototype ZR1. You can also hear a different ZR1 supercharger when it passes the camera.

In this video ZR1 absolutely flies on the highway. In one shot, he terrorizes the unsuspecting Mercedes E-Class sedan, and in the other he tears the Nurburgring's back straight, bouncing off the speed limiter before exiting the brakes.

It seems that the ZR1 debuts this summer, perhaps on another IMSA race or at the Corvette Museum. We can not wait to see this.

2018 Ram 3500 HD Keeps the Torque Wars Alive With 930 LB-FT of Twist


If you have eyes on the 2017 Ram 3500HD, equipped with an additional 6.7-liter turbocharged 6-inch diesel engine with the intention of towing, then we recommend that you wait to sign documents. Next year, a truck equipped with a Cummins diesel engine will be available with a huge torque of 930 lb-ft, a gain of 30 lb-ft for the 2017 Ram 3500HD.

Additional grunt Rama is also not useless, since now the model is capable of towing up to 30,000 pounds when equipped with a new design of the hitch of a new car. This is an increase of 5000 pounds over the truck in 2017. The coupler will return buyers Ram $ 1395, but allows the 3500HD to tow up to 2500 pounds more than the Ford F-series Super Duty can do when equipped with a fifth wheel coupling.

Fords with additional diesel fuel still beat the tug's rating with a goose loop or a conventional hitch, and the figures of Super Duty 32,500 and 21,000 pounds simply exceed the Rhine ratings of 31,210 and 20,000 pounds.

The 2018 Ram 3500HD will go on sale this month with a price that is expected to remain close to the figures for its counterpart in 2017. Despite the fact that Ram is not ready to release data on horsepower for its diesel version, we expect that the same power will be equal to the power of 385 hp, which is currently at the top of the totem pole of the 2017 Ram 3500HD diesel.
