The new BMW M3 Saloon

TOO POWERFUL.

the new bmw m3 Sedan.
 

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 Sedan.

The new BMW M3 Saloon

PUSH THE LIMITS.

You can tell that the new BMW M3 Sedan is still a genuine athlete away from the racetrack. It always exhibits extremely precise, agile handling – above all in demanding driving situations.  The powerful M engine lays down its thrust in precisely measured doses onto the road, using the manual six-speed M transmission or the seven-speed double-clutch automatic transmission.

COMPETITION PACKAGE.

Thanks to an enhanced engine output and specially tuned Adaptive M suspension, the M3 Competition Sedan offers a noticeable increase in driving performance. 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 star alloy wheels with mixed tyres.

With the Competition model, the new BMW M3 Competition Sedan extracts even more dynamism from the 331kW engine. Also included: specially matched Adaptive M suspension, burnished 20” M light-alloy wheels Star-Spoke style 666 M with mixed tyres and an M Sport exhaust system for an even more distinctive sound.

Driver-orientated cockpit.
 

A driving position fit for the racetrack. Every detail is ergonomically optimised for the driver. At the centre is the elegant M leather steering wheel with its soft leather Nappa covering. Its M Drive buttons can be used to activate individual setups. The sports-style gearshift paddles together with the M double-clutch transmission, enable gear changes in fractions of a second. The instrument display in a striking M design provides a perfect view of all relevant driving data.

BMW M3 Saloon interior trim

HIGH-QUALITY TRIMS.
 

Genuine exclusivity can come under scrutiny. But with the optional interior trim strips in BMW Individual Black Piano Finish, you can really make the new BMW M3 Sedan your own. These optional elements add the finishing touch to the sporty, progressive design of the interior.

FIRST-CLASS UPHOLSTERY.
 

Driving at the limit and immersing yourself in an exclusive, sport-like atmosphere is never a falsity in the new BMW M3 Sedan. The M seats share the same excellent build quality as the entire interior.

M SEATS.
 

The bucket-style M seats with head restraints and illuminated M logo offer perfect side support. Their systematic use of lightweight construction helps to reduce the vehicle’s weight, helping you to achieve your personal best. For extra support during sporty driving, there is a knee pad on the driver’s side of the centre console.

6-cylinder petrol engine.

The heart of the new BMW M3 Saloon is the M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine with its tremendous power and unmistakable sound. Interplay between optimally-tuned motorsport technologies allow a thrust of 317kW, which is increased to 331kw with the M3 Competition Sedan.

The new BMW M3 Saloon lightweight construction

Finely tuned.

More agility through lightweight construction.

The use of an innovative carbon-fibre compound ceramic break reduces the weight by 13.5kg and improves brake-fade stabilisation. The brakes are corrosion-free and more resistant to wear and tear.

The forged aluminium wheels are ultra-light. Rotating mass is reduced and so the vehicle’s reaction times are improved.

The weight reduction of 10.6kg leads to an axle load distribution of almost 50:50, ensuring not only lower fuel consumption but also a noticeable increase in agility and driving performance. The vehicle’s low centre of gravity optimises handling and guarantees the best possible control.

The carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) front end strut brace increases front-end rigidity, improves steering precision and increases directional accuracy. The use of CFRP enables a weight of just 1.5kg.

The reduction in weight and heightened stability of the lightweight axles ensures improved traction and directional stability. The CFRP drive shaft increases rigidity thus optimising acceleration and vehicle reaction times.

The M seats and M leather steering wheel are ergonomically optimised for sporty driving. The systematic use of lightweight construction materials reduces the vehicle weight, resulting in an improved ratio of mass to output and thus even more performance.

A clearly outlined lightweight construction philosophy: The contoured roof not only looks great, the use of Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) also lowers the vehicle’s centre of gravity, thus increasing agility.

BMW 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.
