This isn’t a vehicle for blending in. With a new frameless kidney grille, contoured bonnet and a wide selection of exclusive BMW M paint finishes, every inch of the new BMW M3 Competition screams confidence. This boldness is given a razor sharp edge thanks to some amazing standard design features, including the carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) roof, distinguished high-gloss black runner boards beneath the doors and the choice of colour with brake calipers – Red, Blue and Black. Prepare to steal the show.
The combination of the classic BMW saloon silhouette and the exclusive M features gives the BMW M3 Competition imposing look and feel. This distinguished aura is also felt inside thanks to a raft of stately comforts, including Galvanic controls, ambient lighting, heated seats, M seat belts and acoustic glazing.
BMW’s dedication on the track has helped inspire and form the new BMW M3 Competition. At its heart is the new and perfectly tailored 3.0 litre straight-six cylinder M TwinPower Turbo engine, which comes with two turbochargers, and the eight-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic as standard. As a 2-rear-wheel drive (with a 4-wheel drive model coming soon), the precision handling and explosive power is everything that true BMW M fans are looking for, and won’t be left disappointed.
The new BMW M3 Competition goes from 0 to 62mph in just 3.9 seconds. The racing-inspired BMW M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine delivers 510hp and delivers 650Nm of torque. Combined with the Active M Differential and other new track-inspired technologies, powerful performance and sporty handling can be expected in every turn of the wheel.
