SMC Asia Car Distributors Corp. recently introduced the all-new BMW M3 Competition Sedan and BMW M4 Competition Coupé.
35 years since the debut of the first M Series, BMW M GmbH launched the newest edition of its high-performance sports cars in the premium midsize segment. The all-new BMW M3 Competition Sedan and BMW M4 Competition Coupé bring the combination of track-optimized performance and supreme everyday usability to a whole new level.
The M3 Sedan can accommodate five occupants while the M4 is a four-seater coupé. The all-new M Series models boast high-revving engine with 510 hp output mated to an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic.
The eye-catching design is harmoniously combined with the functional requirements of the high-performance sports cars.
Meanwhile, the M Drive Professional system developed specifically for track driving, makes its debut in the latest M Series and is standard on the two Competition models. It includes the M Traction Control, which allows the new integrated wheel slip limitation function of the DSC system to be adjusted to the driver’s personal preferences. Other features include the M Drift Analyser, which records and rates driving stats, and the M Laptimer, which supplies lap times and other information generated during track sessions.
The Setup button on the centre console provides direct access to the settings options for the engine, chassis, steering and braking system, plus traction control. EFFICIENT, SPORT and SPORT PLUS settings can be engaged to modify the engine’s characteristics, while the COMFORT, SPORT or SPORT PLUS chassis mode provides access to the three settings for the electronically controlled dampers.
The M Mode button can also be found in the control panel. With this, the driver can choose from ROAD and SPORT settings, with the TRACK mode developed for outings on race circuits added to the armoury with the M Drive Professional system.
Both models come with Park Distance Control and Parking Assistant with sensors at the front and rear. The standard-fit Parking Assistant includes the Reversing Assistant.
All occupants also benefit from the possibilities enabled by BMW Operating System 7.0 which includes the BMW Intelligent Voice Control.
The all-new BMW M3 Competition Sedan and BMW M4 Competition Coupé are now available for pre-ordering at all BMW dealerships in the Philippines.
