Bruce Weiner micro-car auction photos

Growing up in Southern California, my dad bought a little Metropolitan car and then a Metro van and then two more little Metros for parts. Oh the love!

On Feb. 15-16, RM Auctions is selling the cars of the Bruce Weiner Microcar Museum in Madison, Ga. We’d call that the Super Bowl of microcar sales, but the Super Bowl happens every year and it’s basically impossible to buy a Voisin Biscuter at the Super Bowl these days because of what happened in 2003. Anyway, this sale will happen just once. One day only.

You can bet your kid’s college fund that every aficionado of one-wheel-drive motoring and two-stroke smoke will be making his way down to Georgia for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. And you can also bet that Autoweek will be there, offering blow-by-blow coverage of the most important automotive event of all time.


BMW says M135i will get a Geneva Auto Show Debut

The M135i will rival the Audi RS3 and goes on sale in Europe before the end of this year.

And Autoweek has learned that BMW will offer the M135i in rear-drive and all-wheel-drive versions.

Look for a 0-to-62-mph time of about 4.9 seconds.
