A new Sports Activity Vehicle and Sports Activity Coupe, yeah, that’s what BMW has just unleashed as the all-new X5M and X6M respectfully – and most folks have no clue what those terms mean. Basically, BMW has revealed the newest performance SUVs, what we have adorned as the 2015 BMW X5M and X6M now both packing in 567 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque from its 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8. Feeding that power to all four wheels, the new X5 M and X6 M will dash to 60 mph in just 4.0 seconds, which is 0.5 seconds quicker than its predecessor.
Adding to the appeal, before revealing the price of these Bavarian beasts, is a 20% improvement in fuel economy, new 8-speed M steptronic transmission and the ability for the xDrive system to transmit 100% of power to the front or wheel wheels. It looks as if this thing will give the Porsche Cayenne Turbo a run and we can’t wait to find out.
The all-new 2015 BMW X5 M and X6 M will debut in the flesh at the upcoming LA Auto Show and carry a starting price of $99,650 for the X5 M and $103,050 for the X6 M. You gotta pay to play! Hit up the full release below for a run-down of all specifications and features of the new 2015 BMW X5 M and X6 M.

It was bound to take place, a duel between the beefy naturally aspirated V8-powered Lexus RC F and the new twin-turbo inline-6-powered BMW M4. The two are the essence of a well-defined rear-wheel-drive luxury coupe segment that has drawn many conversations among enthusiasts, even arguments. Motor Trend attempts to settle us all down and take their word for one of these being the choice vehicle on and off of the track. Check out the full head to head video and draw your own conclusions on which one you like the best, or which one really is the best.

There just aren’t that many fine examples of the 1967 Ford Mustang GT500, well, ones that were featured in the 'Gone In 60 Seconds' movie remake in 2000. We have seen the famous Eleanor GT500 go up for auction, one of the 11 total made for the movie, catching a hammer price of a cool $1 million. This time around, car number 7 of 11 built by Cinema Vehicle Services of North Hollywood, CA, the hero car that drives off into the sunset – just before the crusher, heads to the auction block to fetch its share of a lucky son-of-a-gun's off-shore banking account. What will it get? You must wait a month or so to find out via a Mecum Auction.
