It might be hard to spot BMW's changes for the 2015 6 Series family at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, but they are there. The biggest of the understated tweaks all come at the front end, but there is some new tech for buyers, as well, like full-LED headlights. The interior upgrades are equally subtle.

The British duo at Xcar take a sepia-tinged look at the car that started the mass-market automotive adventure, the Ford Model T.

Englishman Paul Bacon spent 18 months in his back yard building the Cosmotron, with custom bodywork sitting on the bones of a 1998 BMW Z3. It's got six SU carbs. Topped by salt-and-pepper shakers.

In a new video, BMW is taking a glance into the rearview mirror to reminisce about the M535i. With a 218-horsepower 3.5-liter inline-six, the model qualified as a super sedan in its day. Also, despite being made for only a couple of years, it brought the Bavarian brand's touring car racing success to the street and sowed the seeds for the M5.

After seeing how they perform at the drag strip, the BMW i8 and M4 are now at Castle Combe circuit to see how they feel on the track. It's the modern hybrid versus the traditional sports coupe in this inter-brand rivalry. Check out the video to see which is better 'round a track.

The Caccavo family has a thing of the second-generation BMW 5 Series. In fact, you could almost call it an obsession, as each member of the family drives some generation of the 1980s classic.

It's a battle of tradition versus the new school, as Germany's Auto Bild stages a drag race between the BMW M4 and the i8. On paper, it looks to be a close race, but check out the video to see how it actually goes down.

Motorhead Magazine somehow finagled a complete shutdown of the Mazda Turnpike in Japan. What'd they do with it? Raced a bunch of cars, naturally. Watch every commuter's dream brought to life in this cool video.

A Motorweek Retro Review takes us back to 1986, when the 121-horsepower BMW 325e and 182-hp 635Csi represented the purity of the brand. It's those kinds of cars that helped make BMW what it is today, and that make enthusiasts bang on tables, upset that the brand isn't that anymore.

Jimmy Kimmel has a bit of a rivalry going with Emily Blunt and John Krasinski. Not like the "I'm on television, you're on the radio" one he has with his former Man Show co-host Adam Carolla (who of course has more to do with cars than the last name he almost shares with a Toyota economy sedan). With Blunt and Krasinski, it's more of a prank rivalry.

BMW is unwrapping refreshed versions of its luxurious 6 Series family for the 2015 model year, and the range features some styling tweaks inside and out, along with new standard tech.

It must be nice to have ludicrously rich parents. Rapper Lil' Wayne's daughter Reginae recently celebrated her 16th birthday with a huge party in Atlanta. Where many teens would be overjoyed just to get a family hand-me-down for a first car, the rapper's daughter got two brand-new vehicles – a BMW X4 and a Ferrari 599 GTO.

The BMW i8 may be the cutting edge today – it did, after all, just win our Technology of the Year award – but as rare an event as it is, it's not the first time that BMW has put out an extreme mid-engined supercar. The last time was in the late 1970s with the M1, a Giugiaro-designed, (partially) Lamborghini-developed piece of exotic machinery.

It's the showdown everyone's been looking forward to, the East versus West grudge match of the year. We're talking, of course, about the BMW M4 versus the Lexus RC F.

The wheels are one of the first things you notice when checking out the 2015 BMW Alpina B6 xDrive Gran Coupe. The 20-inch aluminum alloy rollers have 21 spokes that spray out from their hubs, creating one of Alpina's signature design features. But there's also plenty of function to go along with the stylistic form of this hotted-up BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe.

An E36 BMW 3 Series might be a good choice for a lot of purposes – a long road trip, a track day, rallycross, impressing your friends... but a full-on rally? It's rear-drive when the best rally machines are front- or all-wheel drive. But that didn't stop Pritt Koik and Alari-Uku Heldna from entering their stripped-out E36 in the Viru Rally in Estonia... or from getting some big air time when they did.

Autocar wants to find Britain's best driver's car, and it's challenging a murderers' row of some of the world's best performance vehicles to find out, including the latest Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. All of them were therefore assembled at the Castle Combe Circuit to find a winner.
