M is for Motorsport, a badge worn by select BMW models that signifies that a vehicle is not only top-of-the-line when it comes to status and styling, but that it is built to deliver ground-shaking performance. Combining the best of the BMW Series lineup with the utmost in luxury, here are some of the most popular M Series models on offer.
The concept here stems from the historical roots of the BMW M GmbH, but the M2 is much more available for purchase! The 2016 BMW M2 Coupe is all about modern sporting prowess and classic rear-wheel drive.You're getting breathtaking performance out of the M2, thanks to its specially tuned suspension and powerful M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder engine.
Back for another year of eye-popping thrills, the 2016 M3 4-door sedan remains in fighting shape. Dropped is the old V8, replaced by lighter, high-performing turbocharged inline-6 that cranks out 426 horsepower on any given day. Lighter but more spacious, the new M3 offers two transmission options, pedestrian collision warning, and a "smokey burnout" function that gives the driver a playful degree of rear wheelspin at lower speeds.
More than just an upgrade on the 5 Series, the M5 is more like a culmination of a lifetime's obsession. The 2016 BMW M5 midsize sedan straps you in for a high-performance feel, retaining its famous 7-speed dual-clutch transmission at directing that responsiveness to the heady 560 horsepower turbocharged V8 engine. Should you choose to bring someone along for the ride, you can carry up to four passengers in the climate controlled cabin, with Bluetooth and heated seats.
Never mind the name; the new 2016 BMW M4 is just the M3 dropping two doors, and opting for a more stunning dress. And we expect very few to be disappointed from this latest adaptation of the M Series' bread and butter in North America. The M4 also drops its V8 for an inline-6, adding electric-assist steering, staggered wheel widths, and front and rear aluminum suspension components to race through the tightening fuel efficiency regulations in the western world.
For more of a thrill, opt for the roofless M4 Cabriolet as you wind through the serpentine valley roads of the Pacific mountains.

There are convertibles, and then there is the 2016 BMW M6, the ultimate performance cruiser. Powered by a 560 horsepower 4.4L V8 engine, and controlled with the finger-tip sensitivity of its 7-speed automated manual transmission, the M6 Cabriolet is opulence within reach. And did we mention the roominess of the front seats? All that's missing now are a pair of sunglasses and an exhilarating soundtrack.
Cap it off with a hard top roof and you have the 2016 BMW M6 Coupe. Heated seats, 19-inch alloy wheels, carbon-fiber interior trim, ventilated front seats, and Head-Up Display. There is only one trim available, only one acceptable way to ride in this marriage of performance and comfort.
And if you wish to carry passengers in the back seat, the 2016 BMW M6 Gran Coupe offers slightly more room and easier entry than its coupe compatriot, with all the same performance specs and stylish body features as the other M6 models.
