Every inch a sports car.
BMW M3 Sedan Exterior
One look at the BMW M3 Sedan reveals all: here is a perfect blend of sports car and sedan. That muscular front end with its large air vents and prominent powerdome. The wind tunnel-honed exterior mirrors. The four chromed tailpipes and wider rear track. It's an exterior that promises exhilarating performance - combined with four-door practicality.
A driver's paradise.
BMW M3 Sedan Interior
The BMW M3 Sedan is as special inside as out. Its cockpit has a true sports car feel, but combined with high ergonomic comfort and fine design. From the leather-trimmed M multifunction steering wheel with stitching in M colours to the special M sports seats or the Titanium Shadow interior trim, every detail reflects the exclusivity and sporting pedigree that define BMW M.
Raising the redline
BMW M3 Sedan Engine
Power all the way to the redline - the BMW M3 Sedan's V8 high-rev engine has genuine race-car character. Every component has been carefully optimized to maximize output and engine speed. The result? 309 kW (420 hp), up to 8,300 rpm, and 400 Nm of torque at 3,900 rpm. And that's not all: the individual throttle butterflies and engine management system ensure the engine responds rapidly to driver inputs, translating every touch of the right pedal into instant acceleration.
Every gram counts.
Innovative lightweight construction improves longitudinal and lateral dynamics. That's why the BMW M3 Sedan has lightweight materials in key areas such as the bumpers and drivetrain. As a result, the new V8 engine weighs 15 kg less than its six-cylinder predecessor. As well as reducing weight, we've lowered the centre of gravity and stiffened the chassis, making for even greater agility and stability.
Thanks to intelligent aerodynamics, the BMW M3 Sedan not only slices effortlessly through the air, but also channels it to where it's needed most. The intake hole next to the powerdome feeds air directly to the V8 high-rev engine. The side vents in the front apron help to cool the engine and transmission oil. And the aerodynamic wing mirrors and rear diffusor both contribute to the car's exhilarating dynamics.
The rules of the race.
Taking your breath away but not your speed, the M DCT Drivelogic Double-Clutch Transmission transfers engine power to the road without the slightest disruption to tractive force. With two transmission structures the system is able to switch simply between the two, thus providing constant power to the rear wheels. Gears can be changed without the transmission of power being interrupted using either the paddles, shift lever or automatic mode for even more dynamic comfort.
