2018 BMW M2
The 2018 BMW M2 is the newest model to bear the M name, and this powerful coupe runs on a 2.0L twin-turbocharged I-6 engine paired with a standard 6-speed manual transmission or available 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. You’ll get 365 horsepower, 343 lb-ft of torque, and a 0-60 MPH time of 4.1 seconds.
You’ll enjoy the time you spend in the M2 cabin, where you’ll find attractive carbon fiber accents on the dash and center console, as well as luxurious black Dakota leather with blue stitching.
2018 BMW M3
Under the hood of the 2018 BMW M3 sedan, a 3.0L twin-turbocharged I-6 engine mates with a standard 6-speed manual or available 7-speed dual-clutch automatic. That combination produces 425 horses and 406 lb-ft of torque, for an impressive 0-60 MPH time of 3.9 seconds.
You’ll give drivers behind you a lot to look at as you leave them in the dust, with a quad-bank exhaust system with chrome-plated tips. Flared rear wheel arches give the M3 a wide stance, reflective of its heightened stability and impressive cornering ability.
2018 BMW M4
Whether you choose the sleek coupe or drop-top convertible, the 2018 BMW M4 has plenty of power to offer, with the same engine as the M3 sedan (see above). Those 425 horses and 406 lb-ft of torque power you from 0 to 60 MPH in 3.9 seconds in the coupe and 4.2 seconds in the convertible.
The M4 enhances performance at every level. The engine brace, trunk lid, and the coupe’s roof are made of lightweight carbon fiber reinforced plastic for more maneuverability, strength, and even fuel efficiency.
2018 BMW M5
The 2018 BMW M5 sedan takes high performance to a whole new level. Under the hood, this one uses a 4.4L twin-turbocharged V8 engine paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission to deliver an incredible 600 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. And your 0 to 60 MPH time? Just 3.2 seconds.
Unique to the M5 is the new M xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive system, which leans on those rear wheels for a sporty performance and can be adjusted between three modes (4WD, 4WD Sport, and 2WD) for top-notch performance on the highway or racetrack.
2018 BMW M6
The 2018 BMW M6 gran coupe is the height of style in the M Series. It runs on a 4.4L twin-turbocharged V8, which delivers up to 552 horsepower and 502 lb-ft of torque. Once again, you can choose between a standard 6-speed manual transmission and an available 7-speed dual-clutch automatic.
You can race from 0 to 60 MPH in the M6 in just 4.1 seconds, and you’ll look gone while doing it, with the low stance, long hood, and sleek, sloping windshield. It’s all been wind-tunnel tested for optimal aerodynamics on your daily drive or the racetrack.
