Design of the BMW M3 Coupe
Like an athlete in peak form, the M3 is a fascinating combination of power and elegance. The design principle of the M3 was not form follows function, but rather, form is function. Every element of the M3 expresses the promise of high performance: the striking all-aluminium bonnet with its characteristic M3 powerdome; the wide, deep front skirting with its wide air dam and integrated fog lamps; even the sleek wing mirrors are precisely streamlined.
Driving the BMW M3 Coupe
The perfect combination of high-performance sporting characteristics with outstanding day-to-day utility: the sophisticated new BMW M3 chassis. Precise, agile and responsive, the new chassis bears the unmistakable stamp of a thoroughbred sports car: extreme bodyshell rigidity and low unsprung masses provide superb roadholding and unequalled agility. But added to it is the typical BMW sense of comfort, reliability and quality. A winning combination.
Safety features on the BMW M3 Coupe
For all the sporting excellence of the M3, the first priority always remains the safety of the car's occupants. And here the M3 also excels: it passes the toughest European and North American road safety tests with flying colours. The rigid body shell, the crash-protected fuel tank, the sophisticated BMW M chassis control systems: they all add up to a top-performing sports car that makes no compromise when it comes to safety.
