2021 BMW M3 Competition Exudes Raw Passion
The BMW 320i had a profound impact on American car culture when it was introduced in 1976, as the only model of the venerable German brand available in the US.
That success has powered BMW to a long run at the top of the premium luxury performance class, while today facing more competition than ever from traditional rivals like Mercedes and insurgents like Lexus.
The latest BMW M3, with the full track-ready Competition package, exudes raw passion from the familiar stoic 3 Series profile. The controversial long-face double kidney front grille, scooped hood and sweeping fastback effect of the short rear deck with discreet carbon fiber spoilers, converges in a powerful look.
Propelled by a 3.0 Liter inline 6 pumping 503 horsepower posting 0 – 60 stats of 3.5 seconds, this trim under 3,900 lb racing sedan delivers effortless triple digit high-speed performance. And this competition rig comes with all the toys … on board drift analyzer, lap timer, a big heads-up windshield projected screen.
The M Carbon leather bucket seats are super snug for racing support, done in stylized performance fashion that adds up to a cool $99,595 ticket.
