ICON.

The new BMW M3 Saloon. Radically more.

An uncompromising four-door high-performance sports car of breathtaking design. With an array of motorsport-inspired 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 Saloon.

CHARACTER.

The BMW M3 Saloon: extremely sporty, with an iconic presence and performance steeped in efficient dynamics. Every design element, from the large air inlets and expressive light-alloy wheels to the athletic rear, underscores the power of this high-performance sports car.

PERFECTED.

The side view of the BMW M3 combines the DNA of a high-performance sports car with the everyday usability of a four-door saloon.

IMPRESSIVE.

The forward-angled front, with its high-gloss black double-bar kidney grille, M3 emblem and large air inlets is complemented by the dynamic design of the all-LED headlights. Their design and impressive brilliance ensure daytime visibility, and perfectly illuminate the road ahead at night.

EXPRESSIVE.

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 tyres. The M rear spoiler increases the downforce for improved aerodynamics. And the M diffuser and angled M twin exhaust pipes blend perfectly into the rear apron, with its characteristic air outlets.

AERODYNAMIC.

The two inlets for the Air Curtain and the M gill elements on the sides - part of the Air Breather function - reduce aerodynamic drag around the wheel arches. This optimises the aerodynamic performance and, coincidentally, raises the heart rate.

LIGHT.

As part of the BMW intelligent lightweight construction concept, the carbon fibre reinforced plastic roof helps to reduce the vehicle's weight, and lowers the car's centre of gravity. This increases agility and dynamics when taking a bend, and when accelerating and braking.

ACCENTUATED.

The rear lights are all LEDs - their elongated L-shape forms a fluid transition from the luggage compartment lid, accentuating the distinctive styling of the rear end.

M Competition package.

Thanks to an enhanced engine output and 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 exhaust pipes creates a powerful engine sound. The package also includes M lightweight sport seats and exclusive 20" M light alloy wheels with mixed tyres.
 

COCKPIT.

A more sporty interior is hard to imagine. An ergonomic M leather steering wheel with two M Drive buttons for activating individual vehicle set-ups. A cockpit with an M-specific instrument cluster. Perfect bucket-style M seats. In short, it’s an atmosphere infused with dynamism and technological progress.

DRIVER-FOCUSED.

The M-design instrument display falls naturally into the driver’s field of vision, as does the ergonomic leather M steering wheel. M Drive buttons, positioned centrally, active individual car set-ups. And if the M double-clutch transmission is specified, there are shift paddles behind the steering wheel, which has the outside trimmed with with soft nappa leather.

SIDE SUPPORT.

The bucket-style M seats, integral head restraints and illuminated M logo offer perfect side support and encourage new personal bests. Their lightweight construction helps to reduce the vehicle’s weight, while for extra support during sporty driving, there is a knee pad on the driver’s side of the centre console.

ACCENTS.

When the M character is taken to the next level, it’s apparent in the details: for example, on the centre console, where selected elements such as the radio and climate control are highlighted in chrome.

EXCLUSIVE.

Driving at the limit and immersing yourself in an exclusive, sporty atmosphere is not a contradiction in the BMW M3 Saloon - the M seats have the same excellent build quality as the entire interior. A prime example is the fine-grain Merino leather in Opal White from the BMW Individual Collection.

EYE-CATCHING.

Genuine exclusivity stands up to the scrutiny of a second glance, such as the interior trim strips in Piano Black finish, an option from the BMW Individual Collection. With their high-gloss surface finish, they add a finishing touch to the sporty, progressive design of the entire interior.

DRIVING DYNAMICS.

Convincing on the racetrack. Impressive on roads. More so with the optional M Competition package. An engine output of 450hp and a whole host of innovations inspired by motor racing to ramp up the vehicle’s sporty character. The specially tuned Adaptive M suspension, the Active M Differential, M Servotronic or the seven-speed M double-clutch transmission redefine where the handling limits lie – and recast the driver of the BMW M3 Saloon as an extreme athlete.

M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine.

The 3.0 litre M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine blends the best of two worlds: high revving up to 7,600 rpm, and power culminating in peak torque of 550 Nm. Bi-turbo direct injection and M fine tuning ensure the engine responds to the slightest touch of the accelerator to give impressive thrust and confident traction.
Numerous innovations such as sleeveless construction and a lighter forged crankshaft improve dynamics and acceleration, reduce consumption and enable optimum weight distribution of almost 50:50. The reward is unprecedentedly agile handling that’s impressively underscored by the unmistakable sound of the M engine.
 

AGILITY.

BMW EfficientLightweight is a construction approach that uses ultra-light materials - a top priority in M vehicles - and ensures significant weight saving while boosting body rigidity. The benefits include a weight distribution of almost 50:50, and a lower vehicle centre of gravity. When driving, this means improved directional stability and traction, along with better dynamics and agility.

M Performance Accessories.

BMW M Performance Accessories are also now optionally available for M4 Coupé and Convertible, as well as the M3 Saloon. Four individual packages are available adding key styling components that bring an even sportier dynamic appearance to both the inside and outside.
The Exterior Carbon package for the M3 Saloon and M4 Coupé, comprises styling components of the front and lower trims, rear diffuser and spoiler, all formed with unique carbon fibre for a true motorsports appearance. This package is also available for the M4 Convertible with the front and lower trims, as well as the rear diffuser.
Also available for all models is the Carbon Mirror package, which adds carbon fibre mirrors, while the Black Exterior Package* adds black kidney grilles, side bars and exhaust tips.
The interior can also be upgraded with the Carbon Interior pack, featuring an Alcantara steering wheel with carbon fibre inlays, plus a gear surround and selector that feature the same carbon fibre finish.
