  1. F32,F33,F36,F82,F83: In an article in a German car magazine they said...

    In an article in a German car magazine they said that the price point of the GTS would be between 140.000 EUR and 150.000 EUR. I can't really imagine anyone paying that kind of money for a 3 series...

    Sure. But building one gullwing car in the 1960s does not mean they have a monopoly on this forever. There are lots of ther car makers that have made scissor doors in the last few decades, whereas...
  3. I meant in the same class. The C63 is a...

    I meant in the same class. The C63 is a competitor in the 3 series class, not the 5 series. I think BMW should also offer two variants of the M3/M4, and not just bring out one limited production car...
  4. I agree. But again, that's much more costly...

    I agree.

    But again, that's much more costly than just adding more power. Lighter materials (Aluminium, carbon fiber) are expensive, much more so than steel and also make repairs more expensive....

    Lots of other factors play into the decision that were not mentioned here.

    First of all it's much easier to increase the power output than to lose weight. The latter can only be achieved with...

    BMW does not really have anything comparable to the C63 S - at least not so far. Sure you can tune the M3 but there's no factory option to increase the power like AMG offers.

    Yesterday I read...

    Well, gullwing and scissor doors is not really the same...

    German car magazines have written (more than one) that the steering of the AMG GT is too sensitive, i.e. hyper reactive which at high speeds makes the car more difficult to drive than the Porsche.

  9. I don't quite understand the Nordschleife times....

    I don't quite understand the Nordschleife times. Was that the VLN variant which is a few kilometers longer? Otherwise these times would be really, really slow - the Turbo S was driven by the German...

    You should add the info about the F10 M5 that was dynoed at 649hp instead of 575 by German sport auto magazine that I posted the other day. It is clear that BMW uses press remaps that don't have...

    As they can't win F1 races any more, maybe they want to be sure at least not to lose races with street cars? :rolleyes:
  12. With tune and exhaust the R8 V10 is easily an...

    With tune and exhaust the R8 V10 is easily an 11-second car. Barely 119 mph trap speed is really slow too, even accounting for the fact that the R8 is not a dragstrip monster.

    I also wonder where...
  13. The hp difference is much larger though. Whereas...

    The hp difference is much larger though. Whereas it was only 25hp in the current R8, it will be 70hp in the new one. Which does not make it seem unlikely that there are (slight) differences in the...

    Prices: V10 starts at 165.000 EUR, the V10+ at 187.400 EUR.

    Rather moderate increases compared to the first generation model.
  15. I think it's not clear yet whether the...

    I think it's not clear yet whether the entry-level V10 and the V10+ indeed have exactly the same engine. Someone mentioned in a German forum that there may be hardware differences between the two.

    I thought direct reprogramming of the DME is now possible. Why use a piggyback then?
  17. Not in the sense that they wrote to BMW and asked...

    Not in the sense that they wrote to BMW and asked for an official statement. Which I believe would be counterproductive as they do rely on the car manufacturers to make cars available for testing to...

    That's just a sign of cultural differences. Drag racing is much less traditional and therefor popular in Europe than it is in the States. Around here, circuit racing is the norm rather than 1/4 mile....

    AutoBild is the equivalent of a tabloid magazine for cars - cheap journalism (if you want to call it that) and lots of colourful pictures. Mostly worthless stuff, not to be taken seriously. One...

    They're pretty close together, actually.

    Pursuant to the German car magazine 'sport auto', the 4.0 performed a 7.30 time on the Nordschleife, while the new GT3 did a lap in 7.32. Close enough...
  22. 991: I would assume that the output will be slightly...

    I would assume that the output will be slightly more than 500hp (crank), otherwise people may feel a bit cheated as this was already the output of the RS 4.0 a few years ago.
  23. That R8 seems really slow if it is supercharged...

    That R8 seems really slow if it is supercharged indeed. If it's only remapped that would be another matter though. Maybe he forgot to turn on the supercharger?
  24. You do know the Lambo is also AWD right.

    You do know the Lambo is also AWD right.

    Ummm the R8 LMX also has 570hp. So now they have 2 special edition models with the same output, but claiming the latest special edition is the most powerful one? Hmmm.

    Anyway, you can easily get...
