The BMW M Series Body Style: Power, Style, and Performance

May 25th, 2017 by

The M Series of the BMW is loaded with energy that you typically find in race cars. Here, it is packed into eight models that you can drive on all terrains. Learn about some of them and their M Series features that stand out above the rest.

M3 Sedan

This model is considered an icon among the M Series vehicles. The M3 Sedan gets consistently better mileage in the arena of high-performance automobiles. It is motorsport at its finest: The BMW M3 will go from zero to 60 miles per hour in less than four seconds. With a 425 horsepower, it reaches a top speed of 155 miles per hour.

The M3 balances power with weight by having a carbon fiber roof, aluminum hood, front wheel arches, and more. This allows optimal maneuvering of the car on the track or road. The center console is a driver’s dream. Picture a leather-wrapped dashboard, perfectly placed controls, and an M-specific, full-color warning display. To meet your needs, choose between the seven-speed, dual-clutch transmission or the six-speed, manual transmission.

M4 Coupe and Convertible

This M Series model is available in a Coupe or Convertible. Featuring unique shades like Yas Marina and Austin Yellow, the BMW M4 is designed with precision handling and lightweight power. Many of its components are made from carbon fiber reinforced plastic such as the trunk lid, roof, and engine brace. But it is the driveshaft that really shines. The unit provides incredible strength while lowering mass rotation. This delivers a smoother ride than normal. The exterior boasts an integrated spoiler on the back and a diffuser. Both are made with that special carbon fiber that decreases the weight.

The interior of the M4 is just as exciting. The sporty front seats have a four-way lumbar support, integrated headrests, and adjustable side bolsters. A backlit M logo proudly marks the backrest of each. Also available in the seven-speed, dual-clutch transmission or the six-speed, manual transmission. In your sightline, you will get a multi-color view of your gear, digital rev-counter, and speed on a bright display.

X5 M

The BMW X5 M is an incredible vehicle — it is a significant presence in the M Series. The all-terrain ability of the four-wheel drive system provides diverse performance everywhere, helping the tires grip the road. Prepare yourself for a balanced distribution between the front and rear axles and the 21-inch M double-spoke light-alloy wheels. The X5 M has the most powerful engine ever created for a BMW Sports Activity Vehicle. It, matched with the sophistication of the M TwinPower Turbo and Valvetronic components, gives way to a zero to 60 miles per hour speed in four seconds.

The elegant exterior is more than just a pretty face. The front air intakes increase cooling, the full LED headlights sparkle, and the kidney grille makes you take notice. 18-way multifunction seats grace the interior. 4-way lumbar support is accompanied by a specially designed upper backrest and adjustable thigh support. The headrests are complete with the M logo.

Every M Series model has an advanced engineering design. Are you wondering if these cars are street legal? Absolutely. They are essentially everyday performance powerhouses that you can track laps in.
