2021 BMW M5: High-Performance 5-Series is Better Than Ever

The 2021 BMW M5 packs a mighty punch with its turbocharged V8.xDrive is standard along with BMW’s Intelligent Personal Assistant.BMW will do the global market launch of the 2021 M5 in August. In my mind, the last great BMW M5 is the E39 model from 1998 to 2003. Conceived before the Bangle era of V10-powered M5s, the third-gen E39 represented the pinnacle of luxury-sport sedans, with particular emphasis on ‘sport.’ And while we all love the refreshed 2021 BMW 5-Series, it’s hard not to notice...

M Power: Giving the BMW K100RS a modern edge

A few years ago, building a cafe racer usually meant imbuing it with a sense of nostalgia. But these days, the custom scene is just as much about modernizing older motorcycles. So we’re seeing more and more builds that combine sharp lines and a sense of minimalism, with performance upgrades matched to ‘neo-retro’ looks. This deft BMW K100 from Motocrew, the one-man custom shop of Chris Scholtka, is a textbook example of the trend. Based in Cottbus, southeast of Berlin, Chris is a firefighter ...
