Munich - The current generation BMW M4 is getting one last hurrah with the release of the Edition M Heritage that you see here, and if you want one you’d better hurry as just 10 have been allocated to South Africa.
Inspired by the brand’s DTM saloon car racing exploits, the M4 Edition M Heritage will make its world debut at the next DTM weekend, which takes place from 13 to 15 September.
The new edition is based on the M4 Competition, and shares its 3-litre six-cylinder turbopetrol engine, tuned to 331kW and 550Nm - and which should get you from 0-100km/h in four seconds flat, according to claims.
What sets the Edition M Heritage apart is a number of unique exterior and interior garnishes that salute the car’s M Performance legacy.
Fittingly it’s only offered in the three colours inspired by the BMW M GmbH logo with its light blue, dark blue and red hues. In the edition's case, this means a choice of Laguna Seca Blue, Velvet Blue metallic and Imola Red exterior paint colours. Designers also thought of adding a decorative strip on the carbon-fibre reinforced plastic roof, featuring the M colours.
