BMW M10

BMW has reserved lately three trademarks: BMW M10, BMW 555 and Progressive Activity Sedan.

The recent discussions on the web say that the BMW M10 will be a front engine high speed vehicle. The BMW M10 might get the V10 engine from the M5/M6 developing 550 HP or the 420 hp engine from the BMW M3 E92. These power figures will put the BMW M10 in direct competition with the Audi R8.

Scott needs to further elaborate on what he knows about this M10.

The R8 is stunning. BMW would really have to think outside the box to compete with that car on appearance. Anything Z4 like what's pictured above just won't cut it imo.

I'd love to see a mid or rear engine exotic from BMW or MB. I'd be curious to see what either can do.

Just goes to show you beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I've seen the R8 in person, and I didn't find it stunning at all. The proportions aren't as pleasing to me as BMW's long hood/short deck F/R layouts. Midengine cars are tough to proportion.

Detailing was wonderful, of course, but the general shape does nothing for me.

The R8 sounds like a scintillating drive, though, so I suspect if I had the scratch to buy one I wouldn't car what it looked like

If BMW makes this car it will be hot, especially if it's priced around the 911/R8 arena, and not Z8 territory.

i love the disproportioned look of mid engine cars. Just take the Zonda roadster F for example. It's got that fighter jet look and would definitely make it a head turner on the streets. After all, if your buying a 100k+ car, isn't that what you want?

That's exactly what appeals to me as well. The cab forward design. And being able to see the engine through the rear deck, well that's just I believe the R8 even has led's that accent the engine bay, again But yes beauty most certainly is in the eye of the beholder. I love the SLR, many hate it. Not a big fan of the Veyron, many love it. To each his own.



Yummy. Everyone's eyes are certainly different, but GOOD GOD ALMIGHTY I don't knowif it get's any sexier than this!! This is pure eye candy for me. Sex on 4 wheels.

I despise that ugly contrasting swath of black. It looks like a SMART car design. Blech.

Maybe I'd like it better without that... But I still like the proportions of F/R much better.

Well the colored side blades are optional I believe. To each his own. The Z8 makes me yawn. I'd love to see a poll on this one. Should we put a 6-pack on it? :biggrin:

Yes, I do agree. Aston's cars are well-proportioned and beautiful to look at.

I didn't post the Z8 as something regarding the highest form of automotive art, but its proportions are far more pleasing than the Audi's.

Sure, do a poll--this is a BMW site, after all. I'm guessing the long hood/short deck F/R layout will be a natural

Rendering of next McLaren mid engine supercar. I'm still all about the cab fwd, it just looks so sick. Buuuuuuut, I agree Aston's are the cleanest looking cars on the road today. I LOVE them. I said this another post, it should be illegal for the DBS to look as hawt as it does!!! But c'mon man this layout is frikkin nice.

Doesn't look terrible

I do like the M/R layout--a MK1 MR2 was my first car, after all. It's very fun and makes for a dynamically interesting auto. I love to drive them, just not always look at them.

I'd drive an R8.

F/R proportions are simply more classic and result in prettier shapes :thumbup:

new?! information (or not) - i saw this over on teh NASIOC today and it reminded me of this thread.



Quote:
BMWs recently revealed Hommage concept got tongues wagging in a big way across the Blogosphere and the one big question was; is BMW planning to have another tilt at a production M1? The pot was further stirred by a talented CGI artist from Spain who took an E92 M3 coupe and with a chop here and blend there, created what for all the world could have been a production M1 - but it wasnt.

Well M1 fans, there is yet another piece of news concerning a future BMW supercar. Italian BMW tuner Racing Dynamics has via their website unwittingly confirmed BMWs plan to build an M1 successor.

The above image appeared on their website along with the following description:
The Racing Dynamics RS55 Coupe 655 HP and a top speed in excess of 215 MPH. The V10-powered Racing Dynamics RS55 is based on the upcoming M10 supercar from BMW, and will likely see the showroom floor by the end of 2009″.

End of 2009 guys! If this is true then the folks over at Bavarian Motor Werks have had their hands full with a new supercar for a while now and passed the specs on to some aftermarket tuners. Set to take on the Italians, lets hope BMW can bring the price in under the Lexus LF-A.

Looks like a very slightly modified drawing of TC Kline's Carbon Coupe:
