    BMW M Special Editions: new design features, colours

    The changes to the M and M Sport Special Edition model will include new design features and additional retro paint shades. The features and paint shade options are said to represent different time periods in the 50-year history of BMW M. An important addition to the Special Edition models would be the revival of the original M emblem that was first featured on early BMW Motorsport race cars. It features semicircles in blue, red and violet.

    Globally, BMW introduced the M3 and M4 50 Jahre editions recently with bespoke design features. BMW could introduce the two models in India as a part of the 10 special edition launch. BMW also revealed the M4 CSL overseas, and BMW might also bring it to the Indian market as a part of the special edition.

    BMW M Special Edition India launch

    BMW will launch the M and M Sport Special Edition models one after the other throughout this year. The carmaker says that both Completely Built Units (CBUs) and locally assembled models will get the special edition treatment. It is likely that the special edition models will command a premium over their regular counterparts, thanks to design updates and additional paint shade options.

    Currently, BMW sells four M models in the Indian market  the M4 Competition, M5 Competition, M8 Coupe and the X5M Competition. However, it is likely that some of these special editions may just amount to M Sport variants of the standard petrol and diesel models, with special colours and badging. 

    BMW M: brief history

    On May 24, 1972, the partnership agreement for BMW Motorsport GmbH was signed. Started with just 35 employees, the first car with an M badge was the iconic BMW M1. Designed by Paul Bracq and Giorgetto Giugiaro, only 456 production M1s were ever built. Since then, the division has been behind some of the most iconic road cars, including the E30 M3, 850CSi, E60 M5 and the 1 Series M to name just a few. The first M car to come to India was the E92 BMW M3 in 2008.
