This week I’m driving the all-new 2020 BMW 330i MSport around Central Texas to try some of the best BBQ in all of Texas. The G20 3-Series is brand new for 2020 and represents the volume sedan for BMW in North America.
I owned an F30 2016 BMW 340i MSport until last month and absolutely loathed the driving experience once the honeymoon wore off. I’m happy to report that the G20 platform in initial impressions goes a long way in correcting all that was horribly wrong in the F30.
Full review and road trip report coming soon!
The much anticipated Aston Martin Valkyrie made its first public track appearance yesterday at Silverstone ahead of the 2019 British Grand Prix. Aston Martin High-Performance Test Driver, Chris Goodwin, piloted the 1,160-horsepower Hypercar around the Grand Prix circuit for a one lap demonstration.
Bentley is celebrating its 100th birthday with the electric EXP 100 GT concept. The EXP 100 GT is Bentley’s vision of what vehicles will look like in 2035, and the future looks utterly beautiful.
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class has long been the benchmark in the luxury sedan segment as the measurement of excellence. Audi and BMW specifically have taken aim at the S-Class with their newest A8 and 7-Series offerings, and despite all being excellent cars, none quite convey the same flagship feeling that the S-Class sedan does.
Where the S-Class sedan has direct competition from several other brands, there is one model in the S-Class family that stands alone at the top of the ultra-luxury, four-seat convertible segment – the Mercedes-Benz AMG S63 Cabriolet.
Porsche unveiled their new Le Mans and WEC race car, the 2019 Porsche 911 RSR, at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Check out the new Porsche racer being introduced by Jorg Bergmeister and driven up the famous hill by Gianmaria Bruni.
Audi Sport launched the new R8 LMS GT2 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed over the weekend, joining Audi Sport’s race car lineup which includes the R8 LMS GT3, R8 LMS GT4, and the RS3 LMS.
The car will compete in the GT2 class of the Stéphane Ratel Organisation (SRO), and uses a purpose built variant of the 5.2-liter, V10 found in the R8 V10 Performance road car. While the road car makes 612-horsepower, the R8 LMS GT2 makes an incredible 630-horsepower.
Weight has also been reduced to just 2,976 pounds, making the R8 LMS GT2 a full 220-lbs lighter than the R8 LMS GT4 race car.
Audi Sport has begun taking orders on the R8 LMS GT2, which starts at €338,000. We can’t wait to see this monster on the track.
