Will President Trump Block German Car Sales?

Will President Trump Block German Car Sales?

BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi are symbols of success and prestige. Owning one is a goal more people are realizing, as BMW sold more than 2.3 million cars last year. Mercedes-Benz was just behind at about 2.2 million, while Audi unloaded some 1.8 million vehicles. BMW builds its SUVs right here in the States, and Mercedes-Benz has a manufacturing plant in Alabama.

BMW M8 Prototype: Munich Forecasts New Peak Performer at Nurburgring

-Two days after BMW unveiled the Concept 8-series at the famous Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este on Italy’s Lake Como, it’s using the 24-hour sports-car race at the Nürburgring to preview the hottest new 8-series coupe: the M8.-Unlike the Como concept, this prototype was entirely covered with camouflage wrap, so the presentation was more of an aural than a visual treat. What we could see were fat tires, large aerodynamic addenda, four round exhaust tips, typical M-spec mirrors, and huge air intakes. Behind the intakes is a powerplant that is hungry for air, both to ingest and for cooling: the next-gen twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V-8 that probably will make something north of 600 horsepower.
