BMW at the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2021

June 25, 2021

• World premiere of the all-new BMW 2 Series Coupé
• UK premiere of new BMW iX, the pinnacle of BMW Group’s electrification strategy
• The new BMW i4 seen for the first time in the UK
• The ultimate M5, the BMW M5 CS, to storm up the hill
• The special edition BMW M4 Competition x KITH on display

BMW will celebrate the return of the Festival of Speed in 2021 with its first ever world premiere at Goodwood. The all-new BMW 2 Series Coupé will make its global debut on 8 July 2021 on the famous 1.16-mile course. Taking to the hill too will be the fastest and most powerful BMW M production car ever, the new BMW M5 CS, whilst the Festival will also provide the stage for two exciting UK premieres for the brand: the new fully electric BMW iX and BMW i4.

The all-new BMW 2 Series Coupé will continue the long tradition of BMW’s driver-oriented, compact and powerful two-door models and represents the most modern interpretation of the legendary BMW 2002. The combination of its compact dimensions, outstanding driving dynamics, optional 6-cylinder engine and rear-wheel drive, as well as extrovert design will make the BMW 2 Series Coupé unique in the market. Festival goers will be able to see the all-new BMW 2 Series Coupé unveiled at ‘BMW M Town’ at 09:00 and seen on the hill for the first time in the ‘First Glance’ category from 09:40.

Alongside the all-new BMW 2 Series Coupé will be the BMW M5 CS, the ultimate incarnation of the BMW M5, and the most powerful production car in the history of the company. Taking BMW M performance to an unprecedented level, the 635hp 4.4-litre V8 engine powers the M5 CS from 0-62 mph in just 3.0 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 189mph.

Visitors to the Stable Yard, once again dedicated to BMW and themed as an ‘Electric Boulevard’, will see the new BMW iX in the UK for the first time. Representing the pinnacle of BMW Group’s electrification strategy, the company’s flagship electric model will launch in November 2021 and ushers in an exciting new chapter for the brand. Conceived from the outset for purely electric mobility and sustainable manufacturing techniques, the BMW iX combines locally emission-free driving pleasure and sporting agility with a highly usable operating range and luxurious spaciousness. It is also the first model to feature the new generation BMW iDrive, powered by Operating System 8.

The ‘Electric Boulevard’ will also showcase the first-ever BMW i4. This striking gran coupé introduces all-electric mobility to the heart of the BMW brand and offers a range of up to 367 miles (WLTP). The BMW i4 is a statement vehicle, which combines style, agility and comfort with zero tailpipe emissions. Due for launch in the UK in November 2021, the i4 is the first all-electric premium car from the BMW Group aimed at the traditional core of the midsize segment.

The home of the marque during the festival will be ‘BMW M Town’ – offering an unparalleled array of BMW product and experiences. Alongside the all-new BMW 2 Series Coupé, the star of the stand will be the BMW M4 Competition x KITH. Limited to just 150 units worldwide and featuring unique exterior and interior design detail, this very special edition model was created in collaboration with New York lifestyle brand KITH.

Visitors to the stand, which once again is positioned trackside, will be able to see the BMW M 1000 RR, the first M model from BMW Motorrad with its genes coming directly from professional racing. Stunning iterations of new BMW R 18, including the Spirit of Passion by Kingston Custom and custom bikes from Bernhard Naumann and the Custom Works ZON team from Japan, will also be on display.

Visitors will be able to have some fun too -racing virtually, under hyper-realistic conditions, with a sim racing simulator.

Considering they don't go into production until the end of '22, I'd guess a solid year.

That being said, this reveal, coupled with the spy shots should give us a pretty good idea.

I came out of a F22 228i AT M-Sport into my F82 M4 DCT, so I'm quite looking forward to the reveal of the G42 next week as I mull over what to replace the F82 is (from the BMW range of course!).

One of the issues I have for the money I'm looking to spend, is too many options - being in the UK where V8s are not so commonplace do I go 8-series (I've had V6s before, but never a V8); do I go G8x; do I go back to something smaller and more nimble like a G42 (bearing in mind I'm not getting any younger!!)....?

M2 around the track. For sound comparisons at 1:43 is the new C63. At 2:02 is the new M2.

You would have to be devoid a spine to release one of them.

Preparing? I've had it ready since the leaks

In all seriousness, I think this'll actually be a good looking car. Apart from the rear-quarter windows, I really like that side profile. Front and rear fascia will be good looking, though it'll take getting used to. Honestly the thing I'll miss most is a manual in the 230i/M240i, but I don't intend of letting go of my 6MT, so it's not much of an issue.

I think this is going to look great and probably be the last BMW with "traditional" styling.
