Yas Marina Blue
The BMW 3 series cars equipped with better performance traits are accessed under the M-series. The production of M-series cars started in year 1985 and with consecutive efforts and refinement, the BMW M3 came out as the 3rd generation of M-series with availability in coupe and four door versions. However, the M3 coupe variant was replaced in 2013 with the BMW M4 coupe, but the sedan vehicle continued its duties. The M series cars are equipped with better and rigid mechanism for utilization under sports activities. These cars have also received a specially designed tricolor M logo which differentiates the series from the other BMW vehicles. The car has single engine on offer with 3.0-litre displacement capacity and has healthy power dynamics.
The engine offered with the BMW M3 is the twin turbocharged and intercooled DOHC 24 valve in-line 6 cylinder engine which is a replica of the company's xDrive35i engine series. However, despite the same displacement configuration, the M3 counts better performance statistics, thanks to the dedicated performance M-dynamics. This engine churns out 431 hp of power at 5500 rpm to 7300 rpm while the torque on offer is 550 Nm between 1850 rpm to 5500 rpm. These two aspects have clarified the major differences in the power dynamics. Earlier the engine on offer was a 4.0-liter V8, but the current version is ingeniously designed to deliver better performance besides having in-line arrangement. The car accelerates from zero to 100 in mere 4.3 seconds with the 250 kmph top speed and the average fuel efficiency worth 11.36 kmpl.
The car is designed well to suit the characteristics of sportiness. It is designed contentiously but the company made it equally practical at the same time. The face is bold and it replicates the design which other cars from the BMW 3, 4 and GT series boasts. The M3 has a good length of 4671 mm with width being 1877 mm and height worth 1430 mm. The wheelbase designed for the car is 2812 mm. The coupe version of M3 is replaced by the M4 coupe, but the sedan version on offer adds practical aspects on top. The 18 inch alloy wheels are good on show with different tyre sizes on both the ends. The front end gets 255/40 ZR18 95Y tyres while the rear is hinged with 275/40 ZR18 99Y tyres.
The sporty dynamics of the M series are reflected over the interior trims also. Lots of stuffs are noticeable with the racing DNA installed; like the speedometer is embossed with M logo and the door sills have also gone illuminated with the same. The BMW iDrive interface is reasonably practical and keeps the driver updated with the vehicle's information. The atmosphere inside the cabin naturally generates the racing enthusiasm in the driver. But, the bad thing is the rear seats are not for the tall people. The seats are supportive and are specially designed for the admirers while incorporating the illuminated M logo.
The car is engineered well for the motor sport character and hence, the assembly is made resting over the finely rubberized bushes to keep it off the jerks and bumps. The steering is crafted with a better job than any other car from the brand so as to keep the precision intact and bound. The M3's subframe is attached right away to the monocoque chassis; this operation adds the flexibility and responsiveness while getting over the twists, turns and corners. The brakes are powerful enough to cut the complete potential with a mild touch over the brake pedal and bringing the whole vehicle to standstill like it haven't started moving yet.
BMW has merged many new components into the BMW M3 which are effective enough to distinguish them from the rest of the vehicle hierarchy. The car has a worth point for its expenses, but don't consider if you are going to make it chauffeur driven.
