Volkswagen’s Motorsport division has brought us everything from the Polo GTI R5 to the ID.R, but it has reached the end of the road.

According to Volkswagen, the company is “pooling strengths for the transformation to the mobile electric era” so they’re terminating their motorsport activities and eliminating Volkswagen Motorsport GmbH.

That’s sure to disappoint a number of fans, but the company said the 169 people who work for Volkswagen Motorsport GmbH will be integrated into Volkswagen AG over the coming months. Dr. Frank Welsch, Member of the Board of Management, tried to put a positive spin on this as he said “The deep technical expertise of the motorsport employees and the know-how gained from the ID.R project will remain with the company and will help us put further efficient models from the ID. family on the road.”

Volkswagen also said production of the Polo GTI R5 will cease at the end of the year, while there will be a “long-term supply” of spare parts for the Polo GTI R5 and Golf GTI TCR so owners can continuing racing the models for the foreseeable future.

Of course, that’s little consolation for fans who have grown up watching Volkswagens compete on and off the track. That being said, the company leaves behind a strong legacy that includes three Dakar Rally wins with the Race Touareg, four World Rally Championship titles with the Polo R WRC, two TCR International titles with the Golf GTI, and three Rallycross World Championship titles with the Polo.

The elimination of the Volkswagen Motorsport also appears to spell the end to the ID.R program. The high-performance EV has racked up numerous records at various locations including Pikes Peak and the Nürburgring.


BMW is putting the finishing touches on the i4, but new details are starting to emerge about the upcoming electric vehicle.

According to the BMW Blog, the entry-level model will be called the i435 and it will have rear-wheel drive as well as an output of approximately 280 hp (209 kW / 284 PS).

Moving up the trim latter is the i440, which will also be rear-wheel drive.  However, it will reportedly feature an upgraded electric motor that produces around 330 hp (246 kW / 335 PS).  The report also mentions a possible boost function, which would temporarily increase the output for a few seconds like on the Audi E-Tron.

Lastly, they claim there will be a range-topping model dubbed the i4 M50. Unlike the two other variants, this version will have two electric motors and all-wheel drive. This will reportedly enable the model to have a combined output of between 450-460 hp (336-343 kW / 456-466 PS).

Besides the upgraded powertrain, the i4 M50 will reportedly be distinguished by a more aggressive front fascia, larger wheels and a rear spoiler. The model is also said to have beefier brakes and a revised interior some with “M touches.”

However, the report should be taken with a grain a salt as the company has previously said the “electric motor developed for the … i4 delivers a maximum output of around 523 hp (390 kW / 530 PS).” That’s significantly more than the 450-460 hp (336-343 kW / 456-466 PS) mentioned by BMW Blog, but it’s possible the higher number could come from the rumored boost function.

Regardless, the automaker has said the i4 will be able to accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in approximately four seconds and hit a top speed in excess of 125 mph (200 km/h). BMW has also said the car will have a roughly 80 kWh battery pack which allows for a range of approximately 373 miles (600 km).

The 2021 Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series will arrive in the United States early next year and the company has announced pricing will start at $325,000 – excluding a $1,050 destination and delivery fee.

Costing nearly twice as much as the GT R, the GT Black Series is billed as an “incomparable flagship” which features an expressive design, sophisticated aerodynamics and the “most powerful AMG V8 production engine of all time.”

Starting with the latter, the twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 has been massaged to produce a Hellcat-like 720 hp (537 kW / 730 PS) and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm) of torque. It’s connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission which sends power to the rear wheels. This enables the Black Series to roast tires and rocket from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 3.1 seconds. Given enough room, the model will eventually top out at 202 mph (325 km/h).

Besides the almighty engine, the Black Series has a motorsport-inspired design with a carbon fiber front splitter, carbon fiber front fenders and a ventilated carbon fiber hood. Other notable highlights include a larger grille, a carbon fiber roof and a carbon fiber rear hatch with lightweight glass. The model also sports a carbon fiber rear wing as well as staggered wheels which measure 19-inches front and 20-inch rear.

The sporty styling continues in the cabin as drivers will find a microfiber-wrapped sport steering wheel and AMG Performance seats with Nappa leather and microfiber upholstery as well as silver or orange contrast stitching. Other highlights include matte black carbon fiber trim and lightweight door panels with pull straps. Last but not least, there’s a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 10.25-inch infotainment system.
