BMW M Special Editions Include New Design Elements and Colors
New design features and retro paint shades will be introduced to the M and M Sport Special Edition model. The features and paint color options are said to represent various eras in BMW M’s 50-year history. The return of the original M emblem, which first appeared on early BMW Motorsport race cars, would be a significant addition to the Special Edition models. Semicircles in blue, red, and violet make up the design.
BMW recently introduced the M3 and M4 50 Jahre editions with bespoke design features all over the world. The two models could be introduced in India as part of BMW’s 10 special edition launch. BMW has also revealed the M4 CSL in other markets, and it is possible that it will be available in India as part of a special edition.
Launch of The BMW M Special Edition in India
Throughout the year, BMW will introduce the M and M Sport Special Edition models one by one. The special edition treatment will be applied to both CBUs and locally assembled models, according to the automaker. Due to design updates and additional paint shade options, the special edition models are likely to command a higher price than their regular counterparts.
In India, BMW currently sells four M models: the M4 Competition, M5 Competition, M8 Coupe, and X5M Competition. However, some of these special editions are likely to be M Sport variants of standard petrol and diesel models with different colors and badges.
A Brief History of The BMW M
The partnership agreement for BMW Motorsport GmbH was signed on May 24, 1972. The iconic BMW M1 was the first car with a M badge, and it began with only 35 employees. Only 456 production M1s were ever built, designed by Paul Bracq and Giorgetto Giugiaro. The division has since produced some of the most iconic road cars, including the E30 M3, 850CSi, E60 M5, and 1 Series M, to name a few. The E92 BMW M3 was the first M car to arrive in India in 2008.
