The highly-anticipated, all-new BMW M3 Competition Sedan and BMW M4 Competition Coupé have landed in New Zealand in spectacular style.
The Isle of Man Green M3 Competition Sedan and Sao Paulo Yellow M4 Competition Coupé
emerged from matching decorated containers carried in via Black Hawk helicopters, and
showcased their dynamic abilities on closed runways at the North Shore Aerodrome to a
small group of invited guests.
Following a short presentation from BMW New Zealand, professional drivers then took
guests on taxi rides on the closed course, specifically designed to showcase the dynamic
abilities of the two high performance machines.
Available exclusively in New Zealand as top-spec Competition variants, both vehicles are
powered by a six-cylinder in-line engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology. Imbued with
motorsport-derived DNA, both cars feature impressive performance, accelerating from 0 –
100km/h in 3.9 seconds and from 0-200kms/h in 12.5 seconds.
The new BMW M3 Competition Sedan and new BMW M4 Competition Coupé redefine
performance benchmarks and set themselves apart via visually-expressive design and
provide that signature M dual-personality on road and track.
Karol Abrasowicz-Madej, Managing Director of BMW New Zealand: “BMW M fans in
New Zealand have been waiting with eager anticipation for these models to reach our
shores. Deeply rooted in motorsport, the BMW M3 and M4 Competition are prime examples
of the technology transfer from racing to series production and the Competition variant will
deliver the highest levels of performance.”
