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.



*All figures relating to output, charging capacity, performance, energy consumption and range are provisional.

The electric power consumption and operating range figures are determined according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version applicable and as per the WLTP procedure. They refer to vehicles in the German market. Where a range is shown, WLTP figures take into account the impact of any optional extras.

All values were calculated based on the new WLTP test cycle. WLTP values are taken as the basis for determining vehicle-related taxes or other duties based (at least inter alia) on CO2 emissions as well as eligibility for any applicable vehicle-specific subsidies. Further information on the WLTP and NEDC measurement procedures can also be found at

Further information on official fuel consumption figures and specific CO2 emission values of new passenger cars is included in the following guideline: 'Leitfaden über den Kraftstoffverbrauch, die CO2-Emissionen und den Stromverbrauch neuer Personenkraftwagen' (Guide to the fuel economy, CO2 emissions and electric power consumption of new passenger cars), which can be obtained free of charge from all dealerships, from Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (DAT), Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen and at

CO2 emission information.

The values for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption shown were determined in a standardised test cycle according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version currently applicable. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers transmission (automatic or manual) and the different wheels and tyres available on the selected model and may vary during the configuration.

The values of the vehicles labelled with (*), are already based on the test cycle according to the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to allow a comparison between vehicles. More information on the transition from NEDC to WLTP test procedures can be found here.

These figures are intended for comparison purposes and may not be representative of what a user achieves under usual driving conditions. For plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles the figures have been obtained using a combination of battery power and petrol fuel after the battery had been fully charged. Plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles require mains electricity for charging. The CO2 emissions labels are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the Passenger Car (Fuel consumption and CO2 Emissions Information) Regulations 2001, as amended. They are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle.

A guide on fuel economy and CO2 emissions which contains data for all new passenger car models is available at any point of sale free of charge. For further information you can also visit this link.
