Marc Norris’s Bavarian Workshop has rolled out countless projects across its three decades of existence…but none quite like the M2. Based off a mid-Seventies 2002, Norris reworked the classic coupe to utilize the E30 M3’s hardware–most notably, the E30’s chassis and 2.3 L inline-four. The combination of BMW’s defining classic and the “holy grail” of M3s has resulted in a four-wheel wonder.
So check out the video and see that wonder for yourself.

Mel Tang grew up admiring Germany’s finest in the 1990s, as his ownership of both a Porsche 993 Turbo and MB W124 E550 serve as testament. But his most elaborate ride is also his rarest: The early 2000s Dinan M5 was the most astonishing iteration of the E39 5-Series. Even though the Dinan team achieved wonders creating a stable, yet smooth, suspension, the phenomenal power output is the sedan’s most memorable feature: A thoroughly upgraded and supercharged S62 V-8, generating — in peak guise — up to 620+ HP. The Dinan E39 was, in hindsight, a brilliant sendoff to an era of BMW design.
Respected as it is, the AMG brand has come to be regarded as a premium Mercedes-Benz trim. It was not that long ago, however, that an AMG was something more — a hand-assembled blend of luxury and sport that catered to an owner’s every whim. Nothing showcases that more than auto designer Kahren Arakelyan, the owner of this daily-driven 1988 560 SEC AMG. First impressions mean everything — and it was the impression from seeing a Mercedes in Soviet Armenia that made Kahren a dedicated Benz enthusiast.
Hilarious interview with Conor McGregor pre UFC 189. Whether his opponent is Jose Aldo, Mendes, or even Mayweather, Conor is confident that he will obliterate them.
At UFC 141 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, former UFC Champion Brock Lesnar announced his official retirement from the UFC after suffering his second straight loss, this time to former Strikeforce Heavyweight Champion Alistair Overeem. After taking several shots to the body and a final “K1 Kick” to the side, Lesnar fell to the ground in the first round ending his 3rd fight in the last 2 years.
Lesnar stated that he has had a rough 2 years suffering from his diverticulitis disease which required multiple surgeries as well as a large portion of his intestines being removed. He promised his wife and children that if he lost to Overeem, he would retire. If he had won, he promised to retire after his championship bout with UFC Heavyweight Champion Junior Dos Santos. Overeem is now set to faceoff for the UFC Heavyweight title against Junior Dos Santos at a future UFC Event.
Rumors are swirling that Lesnar may return to the WWE, but according to Dana White, Lesnar is retiring while under contract to the UFC. It remains to be seen if a deal and return will be worked out with the WWE.
