Description in Brief.

• Second body version of the new BMW M3. High-performance saloon from BMW M
GmbH with unique design and technology, based on the BMW 3 Series Saloon.

• The unique character of the BMW M3 featuring supreme driving dynamics,
outstanding aesthetic appeal, and a high standard of everyday driving qualities
is now receiving an additional highlight in the guise of the four-door saloon:
Supreme, individual style ensured by a consistent high-performance concept in
conjunction with additional functionality,
five seats, comfortable access to the rear.

• The BMW M3 Saloon is powered by BMW's all-new 4.0-litre V8 developing maximum
output of 309 kW/420 hp and maximum torque of 400 Nm/295 lb-ft at 3,900 rpm.
Maximum engine speed is 8,400 rpm, ensuring optimum power and performance
throughout the entire speed range.

• Individual throttle butterflies, variable double-VANOS camshaft management,
Brake Energy Regeneration, engine weight 15 kg (33 lb) lighter than the
six-cylinder engine on the former model.

• Acceleration to 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds, top speed 250 km/h (155 mph)
(limited electronically), average fuel consumption in the EU test cycle 12.4
litres/100 kilometres, equal to 22.8 mpg imp.

• Manual six-speed gearbox with integrated, temperature-controlled oil cooling,
two-disc clutch optimised for mass inertia.

• MDrive serving to set and retrieve the driver's specific configuration of the
engine control map, the suspension and DSC set-up, as well as the Servotronic
control map as an additional option.

• All-new chassis and suspension with specific, weight-optimised components as
well as BMW M axle kinematics for a highly dynamic driving experience, use of
forged aluminium track control arms, compound high-performance brake system,
optional EDC Electronic Damper Control with three selectable control maps.

• Authentic BMW M design accentuating the car's athletic stance, aluminium
engine compartment lid with striking powerdome as a clear sign of superior
muscle, characteristic front end with large air intakes, widely flared wheel
arches.

• "Gills" in the front side panels, M-specific side-sills even more widely
flared towards the rear of the car highlighting the philosophy of rear-wheel
drive, discreet spoiler lip reducing lift forces on the rear axle, dual
tailpipes characteristic of BMW M.

• BMW M3 Saloon with front-end design matching the Coupé as an expression of
the specific look and high-performance character of the BMW M3; side-sills,
"gills" and rear air dam in unique design oriented to the clear elegance so
typical of a BMW Saloon.

• Body structure with extremely high torsional strength and resistance;
all-round occupant protection reflecting the very demanding safety standards of
the BMW Group; six airbags, three-point inertia-reel seat belts on all seats,
belt latch tensioners, belt force limiters and central safety electronics for
appropriate control and management of the car's restraint systems all featured
as standard; bi-xenon dual headlights featured as standard, optional Adaptive
Headlights.

customisation options; innovative colour and materials concept; five seats; BMW
