Introduction

Developed by M engineers for maximum performance, the BMW M3

Saloon is a four door high performance sports car with powerful driving dynamics that are nothing short of extraordinary.

The large air inlets in the front guarantee optimal cooling of the M drive train in all situations. The muscular powerdome hints at the turbocharger engine beneath. Every detail serves a higher purpose and adds to the car’s iconic design.

Safety

When a car or driver are pushing their limits, safety is of the utmost importance. M cars come with a package of intelligent safety features designed to minimise the risk of accidents. Highly robust, large-volume supporting structures and the use of ultra-high-strength multi-phase steel ensure maximum rigidity in the safety passenger cell, while keeping weight to a minimum.

The BMW M3 Saloon actively protects both its driver and passengers with its Adaptive Headlights and M driver orientation. The use of particularly stable materials like carbon ensures additional passive safety.

At the centre of M vehicles’ ergonomic concept is the exclusive cockpit featuring M's characteristic driver orientation. All controls are designed entirely around the driver, providing intuitive and absolute control of the car, and reducing reaction times.


Design

This vehicle stands for unbeatable performance – in technology, design and, above all, out on the road. The high performance nature of the BMW M3 Saloon is further evident on the exterior. Striking design elements such as the black kidney grille with double slats and M emblem, the black carbon roof or the dynamic L-shaped LED rear lights exude uncompromising sportiness.

Redeveloped and weight-optimised, the wheels of the BMW M3 Saloon make a bold statement. The standard 19 inch M light-alloy wheels with Double-spoke design in Ferric Grey (or optional Jet Black) add to the car’s sporting credentials. The wheels reveal a tantalising glimpse of the powerful M Carbon ceramic brakes or M Compound brakes with M logo.

The cockpit is the last word in perfect ergonomics. The new M seats with their shell-like form offer side stability and create the ideal connection to the vehicle. Everything is orientated towards one thing: the driver.

Technology

The completely redeveloped 431 hp M TwinPower Turbo straight 6-cylinder petrol engine offers spontaneous performance across the entire rev range. Innovations from motor sport like the Active M differential, Adaptive M suspension, M Servotronic or the 7-speed M double-clutch transmission with Drivelogic, redefine the limits of possibility. 

The instrument panel in the M design further enhances the car’s sportiness. While you’re enjoying your drive, innovative high-tech features like the BMW Head-up Display with M-specific display ensure that important information is always in your line of sight. This keeps your focus on the road and so you can fully enjoy the drive.  

Just like its driving dynamics, the BMW M3 Saloon leads the way when it comes to efficiency. Intelligent EfficientDynamics technologies such as Auto Start-Stop or Brake Energy Regeneration keep energy use to a minimum and play a crucial role in maintaining the car’s power and stamina. This results in not only better driving dynamics, but also a reduction in fuel consumption and emissions.
