Based on the BMW Z3, which had made its own dramatic entry a couple of years earlier (and, in so doing, re-vitalized the sports-car market), the M roadster applied BMW M's traditional formula: Take a production BMW model that already offers an exhilarating driving experience, and make it even better. As for coupes, the M version and the Z3 version made virtually concurrent debuts, but the difference between the two was directly parallel to the roadsters.

M endowed its versions of the roadster and coupe with its own high-torque, hard-charging 3.2-liter 6-cylinder engine; an all-around 'tuning' of the suspension system; bigger, more powerful brakes; unique wheels; and special design elements outside and inside. As the two models made their debuts one after the other, they were welcomed with open arms by the automotive media.
