THE MOST POWERFUL LETTER IN THE WORLD.
Packed with power normally reserved for the track, M generates performance unlike anything else. And after four decades of delivering hair-raising thrills, it’s still pushing the limits. But don’t just take our word for it. Grip the wheel of any of our eight M models—from coupes to convertibles to Sports Activity Vehicles – and elevate your adrenaline rushes to a whole new level.
BUILT FOR WHITE-KNUCKLE THRILLS.
At the heart of every M is advanced BMW engineering. Intelligent lightweight materials—including Carbon Fiber—reduce weight for optimum agility. State-of-the-art TwinTurbo technology also ensures a lighter body by decreasing the number of cylinders, while still delivering greater than 100 horsepower per liter.
YES, IT’S STREET LEGAL.
Meet the race car you can drive every day. Its blistering power is matched with responsible handling to deliver track- level performance that you can measure with unique tools like the M Laptimer app with GoPro integration. This tool analyzes your driving style on closed courses and is designed to help improve your lap times.
WHERE POWER WAS BORN.
It all started on the track in 1972. What began as a division for BMW’s racing teams quickly grew to become an incredible passion for many BMW enthusiasts. Its on-track success spurred the world’s most coveted high-performance vehicles: the original M1, the iconic E30 M3, and most recently, the intensely thrilling M2.
Since its inception, the BMW M3 has embodied the very soul of motorsport. This icon continues to redefine the limits of performance with unprecedented precision and awe-inspiring grip to provide dynamic responsiveness that pushes the boundaries of technological perfection.
Weight conscious. The M3 maintains an impressive power-to-weight ratio thanks to its Carbon Fiber roof and engine brace. An aluminum hood and front wheel arches keeps the pounds off to deliver exceptional handling, agility and dynamism on the road and the track.
Power grip. Optional M Carbon Ceramic brakes 4 use 6 pistons instead of the traditional 4 to boost stopping power. When paired with the now standard Adaptive M Suspension, this M is so agile you’ll want to hold on tighter.
SHOW OFF YOUR CURVES.
Preeminent performance. The quad-bank exhaust system with chrome-plated tips paired with flared rear wheel arches that accommodate a wide stance give the M3 a powerful aesthetic that hints at heightened stability and unparalleled cornering.
THE CABIN FEELS NATURAL.
Designed for drivers .The cabin features a tilted center console that intuitively places every control at your fingertips. A leather-wrapped dash and M-specific instrument cluster with engine warning lights highlight the high-end sport function of its performance-driven design.
Gear up like a pro. The M Double-clutch Transmission with Drivelogic provides instantaneous track-inspired shifts, but for the purists who want an analog connection to the road, a 6-speed manual transmission comes standard.
Feel each wheel. The Active M Differential uses Dynamic Stability Control data, pedal position, wheel rotation, and yaw rate to act on each wheel before any of them break free. An electric motor varies power distribution between wheels, shifting it in tight turns, and even decreasing understeer during full-load cornering.
Navigate naturally. The intuitive interface of the latest iDrive includes natural language understanding, so you can simply say what you want to do – from finding a destination to choosing a radio station – and let your BMW do the rest.
THE HEART OF EVERY M.
The M3’s high-pressure, lag-free turbocharging system utilizes two TwinPower turbos to provide a broad plateau, while BMW’s double-VANOS technology varies camshaft timing, allowing higher pressure to build inside the cylinder for optimal power output throughout the rev range.
