You can pick any color as long as it’s Laguna Seca Blue, Imola Red II, or Velvet Blue for the new ///M Heritage—yes, the slashes are part of the name, but we’re going to stop typing them starting now—limited-edition BMW M4 coupes. The special colors mirror those used in the familiar M logo, and will be applied to a limited global run of 750 vehicles for 2020.
The M4 M Heritage’s arrival is meant to celebrate more than four decades of BMW M Motorsports, which began competing in 1972. The colorful coupes sport a carbon-fiber roof with three offset stripes in M colors that run from front to back, and they roll on 20-inch Orbit Gray M wheels. The staggered-width performance tires measure 265/30 up front and 285/40 in back.
The special BMWs start as M4 Competition Package cars with an Adaptive M Suspension, which brings its own springs, shocks, and anti-roll bars. The M4’s Active M Differential and Dynamic Stability Control have been fine-tuned for the upgrade. Under the hood lurks a twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline-six that delivers 444 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. BMW states that the automatic can jet from 0 to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds, while the top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph.
Merino Leather M Sport seats are fitted to all Heritage cars. Laguna Seca Blue examples get Silverstone/Black leather upholstery with turquoise stitching, Imola Red II cars have Red/Black leather and red stitching, and Velvet Blue cars get Silverstone/Black leather with blue stitching. There is also special M Heritage badging on the headrests, carbon trim, and door sills, while a 1/750 numbered plate lets your friends know how exclusive your M4 is.
Production kicks off before the end of the year and pricing will be revealed closer to the on-sale date shortly thereafter. The cars will serve as a sort of send-off for the current-generation M4, which is set to be replaced in the near future with a chassis based on that of the new G20 3 Series.
