The fourth generation – 20 years and still designed to thrill. The BMW M3 Coupé continues the tradition of the M GmbH to build a perfect high-performance sports car. It comes with a completely new V8 engine and drivetrain, a lightweight body that is also extremely stiff, a lowered centre of gravity and a carbon roof which, while just as strong as a steel roof, weighs far less. And of course, everything has been tried and tested on the toughest proving ground in the world, the Nürburgring-Nordschleife. Underneath the distinctive powerdome: the V8 high-rev engine with up to 8.400 rpm which is transferred by the double-clutch transmission M DKG Drivelogic to the M differential lock and then to the rear wheels without the slightest disruption to tractive force. And for efficiency without any waste the BMW M3 Coupé is equipped with an Auto Start Stop function, a BMW EfficientDynamics technology that switches off the engine when the vehicle comes to a standstill.
