All new BMW M cars embody the soul of motor racing with an athletic and irresistible feel. Pair that with legendary first-class ambience and remarkable comfort levels and you have the latest incarnation of M series BMW that sets a whole new performance benchmark.
In the coupé, saloon and convertible BMW M cars, the 4 litre V8 engine responds instantly to the first touch of the accelerator. The trademark and high revving engine concept pushes the 420hp powerplant effortlessly to a peak of 8,400rpm, and the experience is balanced and satisfying thanks to optimum gearing and the variable M differential lock.
For a boost to the already powerful performance, choose the optional seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission with DRIVELOGIC. It provides instantaneous gear changes and uninterrupted power delivery for an authentic motorsport experience.
Reduced vehicle weight also contributes to improved performance and driving dynamics, which is why the M3 has been lightened in crucial areas, utilising Formula 1 technology. All in all this gives great acceleration, higher clock speeds, shorter braking distances as well as maximum driving pleasure. But is not all about what is under the bonnet...
BMW M cars feature exclusive fittings of high-quality finely crafted materials, meeting even the highest of standards you expect from this class of car. Perfectly co-ordinated colour and upholstery combinations are particularly pleasing to the eye, and ergonomic controls set these cars apart from the competitor.
