Geneva Auto Show seems to be quite interesting this year and especially, very important for BMW. From what I was told, a couple  of concepts will be unveiled there. Oh, did I mention that next week we will finally see the BMW Progressive Activity Sedan?

  • Gil

    I wish BMW took that car, added 100lbs of sound insulation, and sold it. maybe less bodywork, but you get my point

  • Gragop

    This thing weighs like 200lbs less than a Z4 M Coupe – seems awfully heavy for a racecar?

  • Marcus

    Same top speed as my 645ci.

  • Matski

    Comparing it to the Audi R8 LMS GT3 and the Porsche 911 GT3 RSR, it is the heaviest:
    1350kg vs. 1250kg vs. 1225kg

    It is also the most powerful:
    390 kW vs. 372 kW vs. 361 kW

    And it also has mountains of torque:
    725 Nm vs. 500 Nm vs. 435 Nm

    That much torque is going to launch it up Eau Rouge like a missle!!

    It does have a face only a mother could love but, it’s a 6 series, it’s an Alpina, and it’s a Race Car…. technically it’s my dream car! So, I love it, rancid livery and all!!
