LIGHT SPEED.

The newest iteration of the M3 marks a return to its original concept. With a noticeable reduction of weight, extensive use of Carbon Fiber, awe-inspiring grip, and new exclusive M colors, this M is so nimble you’ll find yourself pushing every limit.

THROW BACK. LAUNCH FORWARD.

full-img-text-whiteThe early M3 promise was total concept balance. This rendition goes back to an inline 6—updated with two TwinPower turbochargers—to shave weight while delivering 406 lb-ft of torque, a full 111 lb-ft over the previous version.

SHED POUNDS.

A Carbon Fiber roof, engine brace, and driveshaft, along with an aluminum hood and front wheel arches are just a few of the enhancements that make this M3 up to 180 pounds lighter than its predecessor, allowing for an impressive 9 percent increase in its power-to-weight ratio.

WHITE-KNUCKLE WHEELS.

The M3 has a powerful grip wherever it needs one. Optional M Carbon Ceramic brakes use 6 pistons instead of the traditional 4 to boost stopping power, and paired with a rear-axle subframe that’s bolted directly to the body without the use of rubber bushings, this M is so agile you’ll want to hold on tighter.

SHOW OFF YOUR CURVES.

This M3’s exterior emanates performance inspiration. A quad-bank exhaust system with chrome-plated tips pairs with rear wheel arches that flare to accommodate a wider track and chassis, translating to a powerful aesthetic that hints at heightened stability and improved cornering.

THE CABIN FEELS NATURAL.

Inside the M3’s cabin, you’ll find a slightly tilted center console that leaves no room for mistake—this car was made for the driver. Intuitive control placement, a leather-wrapped dash, and an M-specific instrument cluster with green, yellow, and red engine warning lights bring high-end sport function to its luxurious design.

SHIFT LIKE A PRO.

An optional 7-speed dual-clutch transmission with paddle shifters provides instantaneous track-inspired shifts, but for the purists who want an analog connection to the road, a 6-speed manual transmission comes standard.

DIFFERENTIAL DIFFERENCE.

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.

POWERFUL ENGINES

THE HEART OF EVERY M.

The M3’s high-pressure, lag-free turbocharging system utilizes two TwinPower turbos to provide a broad plateu, 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.

THE HEART OF EVERY M.

Few curves are as attractive as this torque curve. It plateaus quickly—a full 406 lb-ft of torque becomes available at 1850 rpm and stays available all the way through to 5500 rpm, for a wide power band and horsepower that adds up fast.

POWERFUL ENGINES

THE HEART OF EVERY M.

Completely redesigned lightweight engine components prove the M3’s commitment to weight reduction. A forged single-piece magnesium crankshaft, race-track capable oil sump, and lightweight pistons all shed pounds where they matter most.
