The BMW M3

The Soul of Formula M.

München, (PresseBox) - The BMW M3 combines legendary motorsport character with everyday functionality. A newly developed high-revving V8 engine, outstanding agility and unparalleled driving dynamics ensure that this fourth-generation M3 is as impressive on the road as it is on the racetrack.

Seven -speed M Double Clutch Transmission with DRIVELOGIC.

Optional M DCT allows M3 drivers to enjoy a thrilling Formula 1 derived technology and an even more dynamic driving experience. By allowing the process of disengaging one gear and engaging the next to overlap, power delivery remains uninterrupted during gear changes. As a result, all three M3 models reach the 62mph benchmark 0.2 seconds quicker than their six-speed manual equivalents and achieve a reduction in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of around 10%.

And thanks to DRIVELOGIC, M DCT can be personalised to match the M3 driver's preferences, achieving the perfect balance of dynamic performance and comfort.

V8 engine.

The M3's 4.0 litre V8 engine is inspired by motorsport technology - and it shows. The 420hp powerplant remains faithful to the BMW M tradition of high-revving, high-performance engines thanks to its lightweight components.

Eight individually-adjustable throttle butterflies give the engine an immediate and direct throttle response at all times, resulting in an impressive maximum engine speed of 8,400rpm and a power output of 105hp/litre.

A personalised driving experience.

The BMW M3 offers a high degree of driver personalisation, allowing the set-up to be adjusted to their own unique driving style. Individual settings for engine response - Power, Dynamic Stability Control Plus, optional Electronic Damper Control and DRIVELOGIC (within M DCT) can be instantly adjusted using buttons on the centre console. In addition, preferred combinations of settings can be configured and stored via MDrive Manager (within iDrive), and activated by simply pressing the MDrive button on the M leather steering wheel.
