The BMW M5 is only a year or so old, but the F10-model 5 Series it's based on has some decent miles under its belt. And with the regular old 5 Series due for a mid-life cycle refresh, it seems BMW said, "What the hell, let's spruce up the M5 and M6, too."
A particularly fresh-looking pace car, too.
We always enjoy checking out a cool pace car here at 0-60, and we have to say, the new BMW M6 Gran Coupe wears its MotoGP livery well.
At least until we see it in person.
Pictures of BMW's new X4 Concept have leaked out in advance of the car's debut at the upcoming Shanghai Motor Show. And at first glance, well, it doesn't look all that...attractive. But we're not going to judge it quite yet.
We're out to save you that $15.
The recession may be officially over, but we all know times are still tighter than we'd like. You gotta stretch every dollar. And, well, the $15 entry fee for the New York Auto show is a little steep.
So we're out to save you that three-quarters of a Jackson by bringing you all the best of this year's New York International Auto Show in one handy photo gallery. Check it out.

If you want one. But you should take them up on it.
From what we've heard, the six-speed manual gearbox BMW has fitted to the new M5 is, well, not quite as well-matched to the car as the seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox that is the sole choice outside of the U.S. and Canada. But we still love it, and we'd probably buy our M5 with it, because damn it, it's a true manual—and $100,000 sport sedans (or any sort of sports car, actually) with row-your-own-way sticks are a dying breed.
