Rumors of BMW launching a mid-engine supercar have been circulating for years, and now it looks like the automaker is finally working on one. Engineers have been spotted testing a mid-engine platform that may just end up in a production version of 2019’s BMW Vision M Next concept.
McLaren has revealed the new carbon-fiber monocoque structure that replaces the current MonoCell structure that debuted a decade ago in the 12C supercar. The new structure debuts in a hybrid supercar due in 2021.
The first trailer is out for the new Batman movie starring Robert Pattinson, and it provides a look at the Batmobile the “Twilight” star will use to fight crime. Production of the movie was interrupted by the coronavirus but a release date in October 2021 has been confirmed.
