Munich. With the study BMW Vision M Next and other BMW M models associated with the elegant BMW M850i Coupe (combined fuel consumption: 9.8 – 9.7 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 224 – 221 g/km*), BMW M will be celebrating the traditional conclusion of the sailing season at the Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez together with yachting enthusiasts from all over the world. Since 2015 and for the fifth time now, the BMW Group is the official partner of the regatta, which has brought together the history of boat construction and the latest developments in yacht design like no other event during the past 20 years. This year too, the BMW Trophy will be awarded in the Wally Class. The impressive fleet of more than 300 boats ranging from majestic J-class yachts, which competed in the America’s Cup during the early 20th century, to state-of-the-art high-tech yachts made from carbon – a perfect match for the progressive BMW Vision M Next. Parallel to the final weekend of the Les Voiles (4 to 6 October), BMW M will be celebrating the German premiere of the new BMW X5 M / X5 M Competition (combined fuel consumption: 13.0 – 12.8 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 296 – 291 g/km*) and the BMW X6 M / X6 M Competition (combined fuel consumption: 12.7 – 12.5 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 289 – 284 g/km*) at the season finale of the DTM at the Hockenheimring.
The Les Voiles is in itself a highlight of the year on the glamorous Côte d’Azur. To mark this occasion, BMW Yachtsport and BMW France are inviting around 200 guests to the BMW Season Closing Party, where they can look forward to a show event featuring the pianist Renzo Vitale on the theme of sound design and sound engineering associated with the BMW Vision M Next. Dr. Nicolas Peter, board member of BMW AG Finances, and Vincent Salimon, CEO of BMW France, will greet the guests who will be able to take a close look not only at the BMW Vision M Next and the BMW M850i Coupe, but also the BMW M135i xDrive (combined fuel consumption: 7.1 – 6.8 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 162 – 155 g/km*), the BMW 2 Competition (combined fuel consumption: 10.0 – 9.8 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 227 – 224 g/km*), the BMW M4 Competition (combined fuel consumption: 10.0 – 9.3 l/100 km, combined CO2 emissions: 227 – 213 g/km*) and the BMW M5 Competition (combined fuel consumption: 10.6 – 10.5 l/ 100km; combined CO2 emissions: 241 – 238 g/km*).
