BMW has created the latest safety car for the MotoGP motorcycle racing series. The new course car is based on the all-new 600 hp all-wheel drive M5 road-going sedan. The new M5 MotoGP Safety Car will debut at the MotoGP season finale in Valencia, Spain November 10-12 and will spearhead the Safety Car fleet in the 2018 season.
BMW is hosting the North American premiere of the all-new 600 horsepower, all-wheel drive 2018 BMW M5 in Toronto. In honour of the occasion, BMW Canada has erected a Luxury Excellence Pavilion in the heart of Toronto’s financial district.
The car that started the high performance super sedan segment launches its all-new sixth generation. The BMW M5 4-door sedan will debut in February 2018 equipped with an enhanced V8 engine, a new M-specific, all-wheel drive system known as M xDrive and performance capabilities that surpass all previous generations.
BMW is using the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance to present its new take on the BMW Z4 roadster. Many hope that this car is close to resembling the production version that will debut in 2018.
“The BMW Concept Z4 in an all-out driving machine,” said Adrian van Hooydonk, Senior Vice President BMW Group Design. “Stripping the car back to the bare essentials allows the driver to experience all the ingredients of motoring pleasure with supreme directness. This is total freedom on four wheels. The BMW Concept Z4 expresses the new BMW design language from all perspectives and in all details. From the dynamic-looking front to the striking flanks to the clean-cut tail end: a few lines and the subtle interplay between surfaces are enough to generate a sense of power and emotion.”
The BMW Club of Canada Trillium Chapter held their 15th annual BMW Corral at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park this weekend to coincide with one of the biggest sportscar races of the year, the Mobil 1 SportsCar Grand Prix. 50 shiny BMWs were on display in the infield of what is traditionally referred to as Mosport Park, one of the most famous race tracks in North America.

Sam is not pleased when he discovers that Paul Wallace (Supercars of London) has rented a BMW M3 to drive down to Las Vegas for SEMA 2016. Although Sam admits that the M3 is both very quick and pleasing to the eye, convincing him to admit any deep positive sentiment for the car is an uphill battle. For Paul, however, the M3 is a winner.
