Click here to download printer friendly versionThe new BMW M3 Coupé offers unique power and performance combined with equally outstanding driving dynamics, almost unlimited muscle from the newly developed V8 power unit, and striking looks based on the athletic body of the BMW 3 Series Coupé already the winner of many prizes and awards. Clearly, therefore, the supremacy offered by BMW M's new high-performance sports car both on the track and in everyday traffic leaves nothing to be desired. But one space still remains in the first row for another top athlete: the BMW M3 Saloon.

So complementing the sporting and elegant Coupé, BMW M GmbH is now introducing the four-door version of the BMW M3 boasting the same drive technology and also developed as a new car from the ground up - another outstanding model featuring all the highlights typical of a BMW M Car but nevertheless conceived as a unique product personality.

The BMW M3 Saloon is a high-performance car which, in its design and functions, sets new standards while remaining first and foremost a BMW M3 in its character - a car developed and built with the mission to convey the most demanding motorsport technology to everyday traffic, offering unique Sheer Driving Pleasure in the process.

Thirteen years after the introduction of the first BMW M3 Saloon, the Coupé is now once again being joined by a four-door "brother" - a version particularly appealing to those fans of high-performance sports cars who attach great significance to everyday driving qualities and practical value.

Indeed, all models from BMW M GmbH are characterised by the close connection between vast experience in motorsport and unique driving pleasure on the road. Their superior driving dynamics is based on drivetrain and suspension technology developed with all the know-how of motorsport, offering qualities the driver and his passengers will enjoy on every trip.

The fascination created in this way is provided throughout a wide range of vehicle segments and body versions, as is clearly proven, for example, by the success of the BMW M5 Saloon.

Now the BMW M3 Saloon likewise offers grand touring comfort for up to five occupants, with the rear doors facilitating access to the rear seats. So starting today the driver particularly committed to the well-being of his passengers likewise has every reason to choose the outstanding sportiness of a BMW M3. The BMW M3 Saloon owes its supreme driving dynamics to the new eight-cylinder power unit which, through its high engine speed concept alone, offers all the DNA of the current BMW Sauber F1 power unit.

Applying this principle characteristic of BMW M engines, the V8, with its capacity of 3,999 cubic centimetres, develops maximum output of 309 kW/420 hp. Maximum torque of 400 Newton-metres/295 lb-ft is equally impressive, as is the maximum engine speed of 8,400 rpm.

Perhaps the most outstanding and, indeed, unique forte of the new model is the tremendous thrust and power going to the rear wheels of the BMW M3 Saloon via the Variable M Differential Lock: The new BMW M3 Saloon offers not only breathtaking acceleration, but also huge, ongoing muscle in the process of developing truly outstanding performance. Acceleration to 100 km/h comes in just 4.9 seconds and continues with the same dynamism all the way to 250 km/h or 155 mph, where electronic engine control sets an artificial limit to the speed the car is able to achieve.
