The South African E23 BMW 745i was the BMW M7 most didn't know existed

BMW 1M, M1, M2, M3, M4, M5, M6, and M8. See what number is missing there? BMW has made an M model for just about every Series except for one – the 7 Series. BMW said the ‘M’ adds a track element and there may not be a lot of demand for the 7 Series on the track. But there was an M7 back in the 80s, kind of, in South Africa. It was the first BMW 7 Series that came about in 1977, codenamed E23. The range-topping variant was the 745i which came with the M102 turbocharged 3.2-litre straight-six engi

2020 BMW 330e (G20) replaces 330i in Thailand, Malaysia to follow?

Over in the Land of Smiles, BMW Thailand has just launched the G20 330e in M Sport guise. According to Bangkok Post, the locally assembled 330e replaces the 330i.
