Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.
As the media days for the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show near, manufacturers are busy prepping their pride and joys for the unveiling.
BMW have just confirmed what they would bring to the show. The BMW i8 will have its world premiere in Frankfurt and we are likely to see the production specification i8 in all its glory. Joining the i8 would be the recently launched i3. BMW say that they will construct a special track indoors for members of the press to experience the i3!
BMW will also bring their 4 Series Coupé to the show. The replacement for the 3 Series Coupé, the 4 Series, is yet to commence deliveries though the launch has taken place. BMW will also show us the 2014 X5 SUV, which entered production in Spartanburg, USA, just a couple of days ago. The new model is the third generation X5.
Finally, the Concept Active Tourer Outdoor will also be displayed at the show. This is a pretty important car is it previews the 1 Series/2 Series GT and a 7-seat MPV from the brand.
Steven Althaus, head of Brand Management BMW and Marketing Services BMW Group, said –
The IAA is one of the most important motor shows worldwide, where we present our latest products on an emotional level. The dynamic presentation of our vehicles on the track is unique and clearly underlines BMW´s brand promise “Sheer driving pleasure”.
