SUPERIORITY. SEEN IN ITS BEST LIGHT.

Born on the racetrack. At home on every road. M Automobiles.

Fascinating design: unmistakeably M.

Perfection and beauty belong together. Aesthetics isn't just a matter of surface, colour, paintwork or material – it is also expressed via aerodynamic design and other technical qualities. The designers and engineers at BMW M know that form and function go hand in hand, and they work to create solutions that combine these two aspects into a single, spectacular work of art.
A sports car has no unnecessary details. This is true above all for aerodynamics: even the wing mirrors of a BMW M have to perform well in the wind tunnel. But air doesn't have to be all about resistance: the wide intakes in the characteristic M front air intake let the engine breathe and cool the large brake discs of the M light-alloy wheels, while the airflow along the rear diffuser lends added downforce. Side gills are immediately visible, as are the obligatory M quad exhaust pipes. Combined, they are the hallmarks of an athlete in peak condition.

The special thing about all M engines: they're independent developments of motorsport technology for the road. Their innovations point the way for other BMW engines. The words ‘M Power’ are an exclusive mark of quality – it promises unique technology, breathtaking performance and absolute quality.
Top output that leaves the mundane behind. Torque plateaus that other engines don't even approach. Instant power from every touch of the accelerator. And behind it all, scores of innovative technological improvements: high-torque concepts, TwinScroll twin turbochargers with a cross-bank exhaust manifold, single throttle valves or forged crankshafts. Regardless of capacity, all of our high-performance M engines unite maximum power with maximum efficiency. 

Ground-breaking innovations: rethink leads to reinvention.

This is why BMW M gives its engineers ample space to come up with new ideas, an approach that has come up with show-stopping technical highlights that point the way ahead. Not just for high-performance sports cars, but also for so many other BMW models. BMW M isn't just about speed, it represents the BMW Group's power to produce innovations.
Take every detail and reinterpret it from start to finish – this is how innovations are created. In the BMW M6 Coupé, the roof of Carbon-fibre reinforced plastic gives it a lower centre of gravity, enabling it to hug the road closer. The M Double Clutch Transmission with DRIVELOGIC enable it to exploit the full power of the V8 high-torque engine without gearshift pauses. Or the cross-bank exhaust manifold which make the M TwinPower Turbo engine in the BMW X6 M so responsive. Less weight, more strength, greater control: the sources of driving pleasure.

The fluid interplay between braking, lateral acceleration and acceleration forward: the search for the ideal line is the search for the perfection even under extreme circumstances. And BMW M models rise to the occasion time and again. The core: intelligent lightweight construction with a low-lying centre of gravity and low unsprung mass, a stiff chassis, suspension and dampers which work as well on the high-traction surface of the race track as on the twisting turns of an Alpine pass. The casing: a roof of Carbon-fibre reinforced plastic, sides of thermoplastic, chassis of aluminium. The refinements: Adaptive suspension, Dynamic Performance Control, M Dynamic Mode. Phrases such as "razor-sharp handling" and "outstanding feedback" pale into insignificance compared to the real sensation when you get behind the wheel of a BMW M vehicle.
