BMW M3 Saloon UK Images

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. The M division takes BMW‘s ingredients for dynamic production cars, listens to the market and challenges its in-house designers and engineers to produce an intoxicating recipe that satisfies a growing niche of enthusiasts.









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 Coup 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 Saloon is true to its roots. Its dynamic statistics are impressive and the M3 is the only performance car on the market that incorporates award-winning specialist fuel-saving and emissions-reducing systems under the banner of EfficientDynamics. For example, Brake Energy Regeneration utilises the previously lost energy of an engine on overrun to re-charge the battery. This feature alone helps the BMW M3 Saloon become one of the cleanest and fuel-efficient performance cars ever.

The way an M3 Saloon’s power can be transferred to the road is also unique for a BMW. Customers can specify an all-new seven-speed double-clutch manual gearbox. This not only speeds up gear changes but also cuts the zero to 62mph time, improves fuel consumption figures whilst lowering emissions.
