Forum: M series

Since 1978, BMW M has offered modified versions of nearly every car on BMWs production line. To this day BMW M continues to produce some of the most highly tuned street legal cars available in full production. BMW M offers modified engines, suspension, interior trim, aerodynamics and exterior styling. The objective of BMW M is to sell factory production sports cars that are comfortable enough for everyday use while offering uncompromised driving satisfaction and performance.

  2. The all-new BMW M2s newly developed 3.0 liter 6-cylinder engine represents a symbiosis of exceptional output and outstanding efficiency. The lightweight, thermodynamically optimized, all-aluminum unit is extremely rigid due to its closed-deck design which means that the cylinder water jacket is closed at the top. This enables higher cylinder pressures for improved power output and torque.
