As BMW prepares for the forthcoming DTM race at the Nürburgring, the Bavarians have made time to also prepare an exclusive road going model in commemoration of the 2019 season – meet the new BMW M4 Edition ///M Heritage.
Exclusive exterior updates come in the form of exclusive paint finished (Laguna Seca Blue, Velvet Blue metallic and Imola Red), carbon-fibre reinforced plastic roof, 20-inch M light alloy wheels featuring the colour Orbit Grey matt and fitted with mixed tyres.
The interior comes in with exclusive selection of colours and materials. These include model-specific full leather M seats in a bicolour design that compliment the selected exterir paint finish, whilst both the interior trim strips and the door sills bear emblems with the imprints “Edition ///M Heritage” and “1/750” as an indication of the limited edition of this model. The lettering “///M Heritage” – in turquoise, orange or red respectively – is also to be found on the front headrests.
Underneath the bonnet is the same 331kW/550Nm straight-6 engine also found in the current BMW M4 Competition. Surge is sent to the rear wheels via a standard 7-speed auto transmission.
To keep it as exclusive as possible, BMW has confirmed production of only 750 units to be available worldwide, with a number of units also confirmed for Mzansi. Availability will be between November 2019 and April 2020.
