You may like the latest BMW design language more or less, but it is indisputable that it knows how to create some of the best high-performance machines out there. Just take a look at the new BMW M3 Competition to realize this, as the sports saloon faithfully recreates its competition-inspired character.
Muscular, sharp and aerodynamic, the M3’s specific M design features blend harmoniously into its modern design language. In this new generation we find exclusive shades of exterior paint, large M alloy wheels, the optional M Carbon exterior package and a whole range of M Performance accessories.
