The folks over at AutoRauto created a commercial remake of the BMW M3 Coupe and the new F10 BMW M5, and they look smashing.
The E92 M3 is approaching the end of its production cycle and will be replaced in 2014 by the F32 M4. The fourth generation E92 BMW M3 was announced on the 2007 Geneva Motor Show with the BMW M3 concept. The production version debuted at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show.
Similar to the previous M3 generations that introduced a new engine, the fourth generation M3 did the same: the BMW S65 engine. The S65B40 is a naturally aspirated, high-revving 4-liter V8 that is based on the 5-litre S85B50 V10 that powered the E60/E61 M5 and the E63/E64 M6. It delivers 414 bhp (309 kW; 420 PS) at 8300 rpm, with peak torque of 295 lb·ft (400 N·m) at 3900 rpm, which represents a power increase of 22% over the E46 M3.
The engine weighs 15 kg (33 lb) less than the outgoing six-cylinder for a total weight of 202 kg (450 lb). A six-speed manual transmission is standard. As from April 2008, BMW offers a new seven speed Getrag double-clutch gearbox, called M-DKG (Doppel-Kupplungs-Getriebe) or M-DCT (Double Clutch Transmission) as an option, which reduces shift pauses to less than a tenth of a second and shortens the car’s 0-100 km/h (62 mph) sprint time by 0.2 seconds vs. manual. It features both automatic and manual modes similar to the SMG gearboxes in the E36 and E46, but with more speed and efficiency.
The new F10 BMW M5 was launched this year and it is powered by a high-revving 4.4-liter (4395cc) turbocharged that uses the BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology. The engine outputs 560 horsepower from 5,750-7,000 rpm and 680Nm (502 lb-ft) of torque from only 1500rpm. It comes in both manual and 7-speed DCT transmission.
Without any further ado, here are the videos:
