BMW M launches a limited-edition BMW M4 Coupe with special exclusive M colors and a unique interior design to match, in honor of its M division’s 48th anniversary. While that’s an unusual milestone to mark, the M4 Edition ///M Heritage is likely the coupe’s swan song, and a sign that its replacement is right around the corner. The world debut is scheduled for the DTM racing event at the Nürburgring on September 13, 2019. The BMW M4 Edition M Heritage is powered by a 331 kW/450 hp straight six-cylinder engine and will be produced and sold worldwide between November 2019 and April 2020 as an edition model limited to 750 units.
The new BMW M4 Edition M Heritage builds upon the Competition Package, so its 3.0-liter twin-turbo straight-six produces 444 horsepower (instead of the standard 425) and 406 lb-ft of torque, and comes with the revised suspension, differential, stability control, and lightweight seats.
Fans will appreciate BMW’s choices of colors for the 2020 Edition ///M Heritage: Laguna Seca Blue, Velvet Blue, and Imola Red II. All three enthusiast favorites are complemented by “M” tri-stripes on the carbon-fiber-reinforced-plastic roof.
The interior of each car will compliment its paint. Laguna Seca Blue cars will get Silverstone and Black leather with turquoise stitching, Velvet Blue cars will feature Silverstone and Black leather with blue contrast stitching, and Imola Red II cars will have Red and Black leather with red contrast stitching. Also inside, all cars will feature the “Edition ///M Heritage” logo and “1/750” on the door sills and carbon-fiber trim, and each car will get its exterior color woven into its carbon-fiber trim.
Pricing will be announced closer to the start of production later this year, but you can expect to pay a premium over the $73,900 that BMW gets for a “standard” M4 with the Competition Package.
The lettering “///M Heritage” – in turquoise, orange or red respectively – is also to be found on the front headrests. The market distribution for the BMW M4 M Edition Heritage have yet to be announced.
