BMW M – Cars of the Motorsport

Almost all the automobile manufacturers worth their salt flaunt their technology, sophistication, size and clout by fielding their racing teams in premier racing events such as the Formula One (F1), the Mecca of automotive excellence. A podium finish at the F1 racing events means an earth to the participating teams. Best of drivers are offered the moon to partake in their teams. One might be forgiven for questioning if Ferrari made Michael Schumacher famous or Michael Schumacher made Ferrari popular. There was the legendary Brazilian driver Ayrton Senna who had almost become synonymous with McLaren. Over the years, great drivers such as Juan Manuel Fangio, Jim Clark, Alain Prost, Mario Andretti, Kimi Räikkönen, Fernando Alonso, Giancarlo Fisichella have represented leading F1 teams such as Ferrari, Mercedes, Renault, Toyota, McLaren, and Williams.

By and large the mean machines that run the tracks of leading racing events, remain just that, glorified show-pieces. It was BMW that first attempted to bring the cars meant for racing to the mainstream public use through their M-Series cars. BMW M also known as M-Technik or just "M" (for Motorsport), now comes to be known as modified versions of their regular counterparts. The modifications in these cars were typically in engines, interior trims, suspensions, aerodynamics, and exteriors. The first M-badged car for sale to the public was the M1, launched in 1978. In 1979, BMW introduced the M535i, a high performance version of the popular 5 Series mid-size sedan.

After the successful launch of BMW M series, BMW offered M-versions for nearly all of its models. The only models that do not have their M versions are the 1 Series, the 7 Series, the Z4, and the X3. Currently there are 5 lines of M cars, including the M3, M5, M6, X5 M, and the X6 M. The BMW M cars are now manufactured by one of BMW’s subsidiaries BMW M GmbH. Though BMW faces stiff competition from competitors such as Audi's RS models and some independent car manufacturers, BMW M cars are still the best known cars in their class due to the longevity of its nameplate.
