An uncompromising four-door high-performance sports car of breathtaking design. With an array of motorsport-inspired technical innovations. For even greater dynamism and even more agile handling. For adrenalin-steeped driving moments where one thing instantly becomes clear: This is about setting personal bests – the BMW M3 Sedan.
The BMW M3 Sedan: extremely sporty, with an iconic presence and a performance capacity steeped in efficient dynamics. Every design element, from the large air inlets and the expressive light-alloy wheels to the athletic rear, underscores the sheer power of this high-performance sports car.
The side view of the BMW M3 combines the DNA of a high-performance sports car with the everyday suitability of a four-door sedan.
The forward-thrusting front end with the high-gloss black double-bar kidney grille with M3 emblem and the large air inlets is complemented by dynamic-design all-LED headlights. Their filigree design and impressive brilliance guarantee a confident presence in daylight hours, and perfectly illuminate the road ahead at night.
The rear view with its wide track creates a lasting impression. Progressive-design LED rear lights accentuate the resolute stance, as do the wide high-performance sports tyres. The M rear spoiler increases the downforce, for improved aerodynamics. The M diffuser and angled M twin tailpipes blend perfectly into the rear apron with the characteristic air outlets.
The two upright inlets for the Air Curtain and the M gill elements at the sides with integral Air Breather element reduce aerodynamic drag around the wheel arches. This optimises the aerodynamic performance and, coincidentally, also increases the heart rate.
As part of the BMW intelligent lightweight construction concept, the Carbon roof made of carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) helps to reduce the vehicle's weight, shifting the car's centre of gravity lower. This leads to an increase in agility and dynamics when taking a bend, accelerating and braking.
In the rear lights, too, the lighting functions are performed entirely by means of light-emitting diodes. Their stretched L-shape with the continuous lighting design forms a fluid transition with the luggage compartment lid, accentuating the distinctive styling of the rear end.
Thanks to an enhanced engine output and a specially tuned Adaptive M suspension, the M Competition package offers a noticeable increase in driving dynamics. The M sports exhaust system with black, chrome-plated twin tailpipes creates a powerful, full engine sound. The package also includes M lightweight sport seats and exclusive 20" M light alloy wheels with mixed tyres.
You can also tell that the BMW M3 Sedan is a genuine top athlete away from the racetrack. It always exhibits extremely precise, agile handling – above all in demanding driving situations. This is where the powerful M engine brings its thrust forcefully yet always in precisely measured doses onto the asphalt using the manual six-speed M transmission or – free of interruption – via the seven-speed double-clutch transmission.
The 3.0-litre M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine blends the best of two worlds: a high-revving character capable of up to 7,600 rpm, and superior power culminating in peak torque of 550 Nm. Bi-turbo direct injection and typical M fine tuning make sure the engine responds directly to even the slightest touch of the accelerator with vigorous thrust and confident traction. Numerous innovations such as sleeveless construction or a lighter, forged crankshaft build on the intelligent lightweight construction concept, improve dynamics and acceleration, reduce consumption and enable an optimum axle load distribution of almost 50:50. The reward: unprecedentedly agile handling that’s impressively underscored by the unmistakable sound of the M engine.
