THE LEGACY CONTINUES.
The new generation BMW M3 and M4 represent a brand new era for a motoring icon, continuing a famous legacy that began some thirty five years ago.
The introduction of the very first BMW M3 (E30) in 1986 was a genuine game changer, pioneering a new philosophy of developing a sports car that could perform as strongly on the road as it could the track. An approach and spirit that has continued for every generation of BMW M3 that has followed.
