BMW Individual offers new color scheme for M3 sedan

Article by Christian Andrei, on July 20, 2015

The BMW Individual is offering a M3 Sedan with a new exterior color along with a two-tone cabin. The M3 Sedan can now come with fine-grain Merino leather and finished with a combination of Fjord Blue and Silverstone that contrasts with the Silverstone stitching.

It now has the “M” logo on the handbrake handle, center console, and bottom part of the instrument panel with the same bi-color theme. The back part of each of the front further has a Fjord Blue center strip that is finished in leather.

Capping off this new offering is the Fashion grey paint that can only be availed from the BMW Individual catalog. The new offering is mainly aesthetic in nature and the hardware for the M3 Sedan has not changed. The M3 Sedan, like the M4 Coupe, has the M TwinPower Turbo inline-6 engine capable of producing 425 horsepower and attaining a maximum 406 lb-ft of torque.

This specification has allowed the M3 Sedan to outperform outgoing models by as much as 40%. Even with the improved performance, the engine is still able to reduce both consumption of fuel and emissions by around 25%. BMW’s M3 sedan and the M4 coupe can go 0 to 60 mph in merely 4.1 seconds with the usual 6-speed manual transmission.

Buyers who choose instead to have the 7-speed M Double Clutch Transmission can reduce this time to 3.9 seconds. The weight of BMW’s newer models has been lessened by about 80 kilograms allowing for optimum efficiency and boosting its dynamic ability. Take the M4 Coupe for instance.

As a result of applying new lightweight design procedures, the DIN curb weight this model is now at 1,497 kilograms. This has been attained through the use of lighter materials in the form of aluminum and carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic for some of the body components and even the chassis.

Both the M4 Coupe and the M3 Sedan have carbon roofing. BMW also made sure that when it developed these two models, it also had remarkable race track capability. Thus, the two models have track-specification cooling system that allows the engine, transmission, and turbochargers to have optimal temperature balance.
