    BMW with a major new model often does a concept car that hypes and shows off the design language. Now, this is an early leak so more photos along with higher resolution pictures will come but the first thing to remember is that the real thing will not look like this. They will try to get close though. You get a basic idea of the direction in which they are headed with the 8-Series. Also keep in mind, the 8-Series is expected to replace the 6-Series. Why? Well, apparently the 4-Series keeps moving up in size and the 8 is close enough to the 6 to create redundancy. However BMW works it out do finally expect a real M8.

    BMS seems to be tackling a ton of platforms these days. The VR30DDTT engine platform in the Infiniti Q50 and Q60 models is a perfect candidate for tuning. The 3.0 twin turbo direct injected V6 is available in 300 horsepower and 400 horsepower from the factory. This is the 300 horsepower version which obviously is underrated. BMS recorded the car at 321 rear wheel horsepower and 317 lb-ft of rear wheel torque completely stock on an E30 blend: That number jumps up significantly with the Stage 1 tuning box. Horsepower goes to 413 at the wheels and torque jumps to 412 lb-ft at the wheels. Why even bother paying the premium for the Red Sport models? It will be interesting to see if the Red Sport models sees larger peak figures with a BMS tuning box as well. More details from BMS:

    Maybe this is a good thing? Lotus has struggled which is no secret to anyone and they did not have the ability to roll out their entire product lineup (limited as it may be) worldwide. With an infusion of Chinese cash perhaps Lotus can return to some sort of glory or at least once against offer lightweight enthusiast vehicles. Lotus was already a part of Proton of Malaysia which did not seem to help the brand much if at all. Geely (which owns Volvo) is buying 49.9% of Proton which will result in a 51% controlling stake in Lotus. Really, the goal seems to be to get Proton and Lotus is just a bonus. The real question here is if this acquisition will be good for Lotus and its future. Nobody seems to know the answer and Geely's focus in the deal likely is not Lotus and sports cars. Source
