2014 BMW Z4

There is not much of a change in the way the new BMW Z4 looks except for new LED headlights, a ‘dynamic sweep’ to the side indicators and new color options. Interior gets an optional contrasting black and orange trim, gloss black treatment for the air vents, Fineline Anthracite wood finish for the dash. The roof is finished in black color.

BMW M6 Gran Coupe

The insane 553 bhp, 680 Nm M6 Gran Coupe joins the M versions of the Coupe and Convertible 6 Series models. The M6 Gran Coupe puts the tarmac burning torque from the 4.4 litre twin-turbo V8 on road via a 7-speed dual clutch transmission.

The M6 Gran Coupe differentiates itself from its more civilized sibling by having a carbon fiber reinforced plastic roof, aggressive bumpers and skirts, chrome trimmings on front grill and airdam, 20″ alloy rims and a rear diffuser twin exhaust pipes on either side.

To handle the extra power, BMW has beefed up the suspension with extra aluminium and gave it electronically controlled shock absorbers. BMW also reinforced the chassis and added speed sensitive hydraulic steering with M-Specific stability apart from fiddling with the ABS and transmission programming.

By this time you would have figured out that auto enthusiasm to the level of fanaticism is a prerequisite to be a part of team IAB. And I'm no exception! As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! Since then automobiles became the love of my life and I grew up admiring anything and everything that purrs and has wheels. My quest to be updated with whatever happens in the glorious world of automobiles naturally landed me at IAB. So here I'm, as a petrolhead by birth, mechanical engineer by education and an automotive journalist by profession!
