>It’s a well-known fact that BMWs are exceptional cars. They’re stylish, fast, and luxurious, and most importantly, they have the best safety features. But not every car is created equal. Some are faster than others, which is why we have created the top 5 fastest BMW cars. So if you want a car that will get you from 0 to 60 in the least amount of time, this list is for you.

Despite some people questioning that the BMW lineup may have shifted focus to luxury cars and eco-friendly cars from its previous fast, powerful horses, nothing could be further from the truth.

There’s no denying that car manufacturers, in general, have had to pull up their socks to save the environment, but that isn’t necessarily bad news for speed aficionados. The current BMWs are still one of the highest performing machines of all time, and if you look at its pipeline, BMW continues to make fast, fun to drive, powerful machines which every car enthusiast would yearn to drive. 

So what’s the fastest BMW to hit the roads today?

Currently, the fastest BMW car that is street-legal is the 2022 BMW M5 CS which can sprint from 0 – 60 mph in an astonishing 2.9 seconds and deliver a top speed of 190 mph.

When tested at the Nurburgring, Auto Sport test driver Christian Gebhardt managed an impressive lap time of 7:29.57, despite the added distraction of the glove box flinging open twice during the lap.

Want to know the full list of fast BMW vehicles? Here are our top 5 fastest BMW cars that you’d want to drive:

2021 BMW X6 M CompetitionBMW M4 GTS2021 BMW M5 Competition2022 BMW M8 Competition2022 BMW M5 CS

5.2021 BMW X6 M Competition

The X6 has always been a tall, brawny SUV, ready to perform your family duties like school drop-offs or shopping duties, though the M Competition can do these with performance in mind.

This is the third M edition of the X6, which takes on the form of an aggressive SUV muscle car while featuring the classic M kidney grille and the twin tailpipes.

This large M model is fitted with a 4.4-liter V8 engine with TwinPower turbochargers that produces an incredible 625 horsepower while producing 553 lb-ft of torque.

The X6 M Competition is capable of sprinting to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds with a limited top speed of 155 mph (or 177 mph with the M Driver’s package).

Power is channeled to all the wheels of this vehicle through an 8-speed Steptronic intelligent M xDrive gearbox that comes with various driving modes. The suspension too is tweaked to accommodate all the weight and power so it can host features like electronically controlled dampers with M dynamic system, Active roll stabilization, and DSC.

4. BMW M4 GTS

A proper track tool that is street-legal, the M4 GTS embraces the M philosophy of partnering outstanding performance with maximum race track performance and combining it within a car that can be driven on public roads.

With production limited to 803, the M4 made quite a lot of news in the car world, setting a blistering time around the Nürburgring with a lap time of 07:28 minutes.

BMW M4 GTS

The car’s secret lies in its 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine borrowed from the M3 and M4, and has been further optimized to squeeze out 500 HP and 600 NM of torque.

A 7-speed DCT transmission aids in quick shifts and sends all the power to the M4’s rear wheels. The second part of the secret lies in the tremendous weight saving performed to the car to get it as close as practicable to the power to weight ratio of a racing vehicle.

4th fastest BMW

3. 2021 BMW M5 Competition

The M5 is a popular sports car from BMW that was first released back in 1985. When unveiled, it set an unmatchable benchmark, and now after many years of constant development, the sixth generation M5 has maintained being present at the forefront of high-performance vehicles.

Here comes trouble: A Triumph TR6 with a Matchless frame

Published

on

custom triumph tr6 matchless frame 625x417 1

Kids are impressionable, especially when motorcycles are involved. That magical combination of sound, smell and danger has a way of imprinting itself on young minds. But Kyle Harvey didn’t just dream of bikes as a child—he practically grew up with them.

Kyle’s trade is tool and die making, but his passion is building bikes. His father, Garth Harvey, got Kyle and his brother into bikes at a young age; as soon as they could start their old man’s vintage motorcycles, they were riding them. Living in Edenvale in South Africa’s Gauteng province, the boys also had direct access to the local Classic Motorcycle Club.

 

The folks at the CMC made quite an impression on young Kyle—and taught him everything he knows about vintage bikes. After helping numerous friends work on their bikes, he went on to open his own shop, named simply ‘The Workshop.’ Kyle has been building and restoring classic motorcycles for over a decade now.

This cheeky bobber is his latest build, and it’s immensely fascinating. The engine’s from a Triumph TR6 Trophy, the frame is from a Matchless, and the quirky handmade details on it are endless.

The Swan Song of the V12

Published

on

The V12 engine holds a special place in the heart of many automotive and motorsports fans. For some, it’s the sound of Formula 1 through the years, especially during the 1990s. For others, it’s engines like the 6.1 L BMW S70/2 from the McLaren F1 or the 3.9L Lamborghini V12 that powered all their cars from the Miura through to the Diablo. No matter where it lies in your heart, it is the “proper” configuration for many: 6 cylinders per bank, put into a V, and firing in an odd sequence to give it that special roar under power.

Yet, as concerns over fuel efficiency, qualms about environmental impact, and high-powered turbocharged V8 or V6 engines are the norm now, the V12 is slowly, but surely, being put to rest. In fact, the only place that V12s are still hanging on by the last threads of their engine mounting bolts are in supercars, hypercars, and a few ultra-luxury cars. Even then, many exotic brands have announced that their next cars will either be V10s or turbo V8s and V6s.

Since it appears that the swan song of the V12 is reaching a crescendo, we thought it only appropriate to celebrate the few remaining cars out there that carry them. It may be the last time we see some of these brands, many of which are known for their V12s.

The writing is on the wall for the prancing horse, as the new Ferrari 296 GTB is showing the direction that Maranello is headed. Yet, unless you were invited to snag one of the limited-edition Monza SP1 or SP2 cars, there is still one car you can buy from the legendary marque that has all 12 cylinders fully intact.

The 6.5L F140 GA 65-degree V12 in the front of the 812 is the last road-going version of the V12 that debuted in the Ferrari Enzo. Producing a monstrous 789 HP and 530 lbs-ft of torque, it is no slouch either, as when the 812 Superfast debuted, it was the most powerful naturally aspirated production car engine ever made.

It has the typical low-rev Ferrari roar that rises into a howl as the car revs up to nearly 9,000 RPM, and will catapult the 3,845 (1,744 kg) car to 60 MPH in 2.9 seconds. As far as a curtain call is concerned, that’s a great way to bow out and focus on hybrids and turbocharged engines.

Mercedes-Benz used to be at the very top of the V12 pecking order when it came to luxury performance cars. Such classics as the S 65 AMG from the mid-2000s and the 500 TE AMG W123 Touring from the very end of the 1970s came with big V12s that sound astounding, but the biggest and baddest of the Mercedes V12s left on in a production car is the M279 E60 LA that hauled the S65 AMGs of 2014.

Road Tested: Gear from Shoei, Akin Moto and Rev’It!

Published

on

In our continuing quest to source motorcycle gear that combines safety and style, we bring you our thoughts on Shoei’s new ECE 22.06-approved NXR2 helmet. Plus a stealthy riding parka from Akin Moto, and the perfect pair of urban riding gloves from Rev’It!.

Shoei NXR2 helmet It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Shoei’s helmets. Every Shoei I’ve owned has fit and felt right from the first wear, with no major deviations in their sizing or shape from model to model. So when I was looking for a do-it-all street helmet to replace my well-used Shoei RYD, the new NXR2 was a no-brainer… and it hasn’t disappointed.

I loved the RYD for its combination of neutral styling, comfort and ventilation. The NXR2 basically feels like a premium version of the RYD; it has the same clean aesthetic, but ramps up the performance. And it’s one of the few helmets that meet with Europe’s new, and more stringent, ECE 22.06 standard.
