Since its inception, the BMW M3 has embodied the very soul of motorsport. This icon continues to redefine the limits of performance with unprecedented precision and awe-inspiring grip to provide dynamic responsiveness that pushes the boundaries of technological perfection.
THROW BACK. LAUNCH FORWARD.
Back to a classic. The 3.0-liter inline 6 makes a powerful return to this iteration of the M3. This weight-saving and balance-restoring powerhouse is updated with two TwinPower turbochargers and delivers 406 lb-ft of torque - a full 111lb-ft over the previous version.
Weight conscious. The M3 maintains an impressive power-to-weight ratio thanks to its Carbon Fiber roof and engine brace. An aluminum hood and front wheel arches keeps the pounds off to deliver exceptional handling, agility and dynamism on the road and the track.
Power grip. Optional M Carbon Ceramic brakes use 6 pistons instead of the traditional 4 to boost stopping power. When paired with the now standard Adaptive M Suspension, this M is so agile you'll want to hold on tighter.
SHOW OFF YOUR CURVES.
Preeminent performance. The quad-bank exhaust system with chrome-plated tips paired with flared rear wheel arches that accommodate a wide stance give the M3 a powerful aesthetic that hints at heightened stability and unparalleled cornering.
THE CABIN FEELS NATURAL.
Designed for drivers. The cabin features a tilted center console that intuitively places every control at your fingertips. A leather-wrapped dash and M-specific instrument cluster with engine warning lights highlight the high-end sport function of its performance-driven design.
Gear up like a pro. The M Double-clutch Transmission with Drivelogic provides instantaneous track-inspired shifts, but for the purists who want an analog connection to the road, a 6-speed manual transmission comes standard.
Feel each wheel. 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.
Navigate naturally. The intuitive interface of the latest iDrive includes natural language understanding, so you can simply say what you want to do - from finding a destination to choosing a radio station - and let your BMW do the rest.
Wireless Charging and WiFi Hotspot
An optional charging pocket in the central console provides inductive Wireless Charging for your compatible smartphone.1 The onboard WiFi Hotspot lets your passengers connect with ease - with 3GB of data included free for 3 months.
Park Distance Control
See and hear your surroundings. Park Distance Control uses an array of sensors to measure distances between your BMW and nearby obstacles, giving you visual and audio guidance for a perfect parking job.
The M3's high-pressure, lag-free turbocharging system utilizes two TwinPower turbos to provide a broad plateau, 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.
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.
