BMW M3 Sedan- UK pricing announced
The letter M offers something truly emotive to the motoring connoisseur. Since 1978 BMW GmbH has produced purist performance cars that tap into the demands and aspirations of customers’ ultimate driving experiences.
BMW M’s first car was also its only ever bespoke car. The M1 mid-engine sports car used a tubular spaceframe chassis and plastic composite body to save weight - steps that were ahead of their time compared to other road cars. Fast forward three decades and there have been 23 different models of M cars in the UK. From the M1 to the Z3 M Coupé and the M5 Touring, they are all unique cars, but each with the M DNA running through them; a pure engineering philosophy enveloped in a sporting design to make for the ultimate driving machine.
The BMW M3 Sedan went on sale in the UK this month and pricing start from £49,415 for the manual version and £52,005 for the M DCT version. BMW expects to sell approximately 400 in a full sales year.
The BMW M3 Sedan is powered by a 4.0-litre V8 premium unleaded petrol engine that delivers 420 bhp. It makes the 0 – 62 mph sprint in 4.9 seconds for the manual version and 4.7 seconds for the M-DCT, and both have a top speed limited to 155 mph.
