Munich. “Welcome to M Town”: With a new film, the BMW M GmbH is continuing its successful campaign focusing on the global BMW M Community’s virtual Eldorado. The “The Drop” attracts horsepower enthusiasts and petrolheads once again to “M Town”, where, since 2018, everything has revolved around the most powerful letter in the world and the passion for high performance. This time, director Micky Sülzer, who was already responsible for the iconic videos about the special life attitude in “M Town” two years ago, is presenting the broad spectrum of current BMW M models, some of which boast extremely eye-catching body colours, whilst incorporating special vehicles from BMW M’s Heritage fleet, including a red BMW E30 M3.

“M Town is the most successful digital campaign from the BMW M GmbH, particularly as the entire BMW M Community throughout the world actively participates and shapes it. This enthusiasm and this identification create that very special something that makes BMW M so unique. Therefore, we are happy to continue this success story with the next film whilst also giving a small glimpse into the future,” says Lothar Schupet, Director Global Sales and Marketing BMW M.

Since 2018, “M Town” has served as the social and digital communication platform for BMW M fans all over the world. They register with as citizens of  “M Town” and create their own individual digital BMW M pass. “M Town” stands for unique storytelling, original online videos, numerous creative products in the BMW M Town merchandising shop and a large number of events around the globe. Visitors to BMW Welt in Munich gain a very realistic impression of “M Town” on a specially designed 180 square metre exhibition area.

As we are familiar with from the previous online videos, numerous BMW M vehicles also play the leading role in the new film “The Drop”. A total of 18 various models from BMW M’s latest range make shorter or longer appearances in “The Drop”. The spectrum of exceptional high-performance vehicles ranges from the BMW M2 CS (combined fuel consumption: 10.4 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 238 g/km*) to the BMW M8 Gran Coupe (combined fuel consumption: 10.7 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 244 g/km*). In addition to some hidden highlights, special one-offs such as the BMW M2 by FUTURA 2000 and the BMW M3 Pickup from the year 2011, which delivers a charging station, are also featured. So, for the first time in an “M Town” film, the BMW M GmbH is offering a small glimpse into an electrifying future and blending “Utopia” with the real future. 2021 will already witness the first electrified model from BMW M as a performance variant based on the new BMW i4, and further models – including high-performance vehicles – are to follow.

The protagonist of the film, in which notable influencers from the automotive scene were also involved, drives a red BMW E30 M3 from the BMW M Heritage fleet. Moreover, BMW M GmbH classics are represented by a M3 GTS, a BMW M3 CRT, a BMW M4 GTS and a BMW 1 Series M Coupe.

Totally in line with the Community concept, the new film showcases not only vehicles from the BMW M GmbH fundus but also from “M Town” citizens. For this purpose, members of the BMW M Community provided their own vehicles for the shooting of the film. These special places had been previously raffled off in an online campaign.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here:
