Few high-performance saloons have a pedigree as illustrious as the BMW M3.
The fifth generation M3‘s platform structure is made of steel, and the bonnet and front quarter panels from aluminium. From the front doors back, the body is steel with exception of the carbon fibre roof. Carbon fibre is also used to make the engine brace.
The performance of the M3 is eye-watering to say the least. With the 7-speed M-DCT gearbox, the saloon accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds while 0 to 200 km/h takes 22.2 seconds. Derestricted, the top speed is 280 km/h. The 3-litre, 6-cylinder turbocharged engine generates 431 PS and 550 Nm.
Our Austin Yellow Metallic car comes with the Competition Package.
Enhancements include 20-inch black 666 M star-spoke forged alloy wheels with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres, Adaptive M Sport suspension, re-tuned electronic differential and Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), and M Sport exhaust with black chrome tailpipes.
On the outside, the high gloss Shadow Line exterior trim and gloss black trim, which is added to the kidney grille, side gills and model badge on the trunk, further differentiates the car from the standard M3 while the interior has been sweetened with the addition of new lightweight sport seats and M-striped woven seat belts.
Other noteworthy features found on the BMW M3 are the Advanced Parking package (with Reversing Assist camera and Park Assist), Active Security package (with Driving Assistant, lane change warning system and Dynamic Safety), BMW M Head-up Display and Harman/Kardon surround sound loudspeaker system.
