BMW M4 departs with M Heritage Edition

Valedictory M4 special edition offered in M tricolour paints, 75 coming here...



It’s fair to say that the current BMW M4 hasn’t always enjoyed the near-universal outpouring of praise afforded to its predecessors; the handling came in for criticism, as did the turbocharged engine, and the steering too. That said, updates have improved it along the way, and with the next M3 and 4 set to go all-wheel drive, this F80/2 generation could prove quite significant.

To mark its imminent demise (or, officially, to celebrate motorsport successes), BMW has created this, the M4 M Heritage Edition. Derived from the 450hp M4 Competition, 750 M Heritage Editions will be produced, offered in one of three colours that pay homage to the M Division logo: Laguna Seca Blue, Velvet Blue and Imola Red. The Heritage Editions can also be marked out by the tricolour stripe across the roof, new 20-inch forged wheels, two-tone leather seats and a smattering of Heritage logos across the interior. Otherwise, it’s as you were for an M4 Comp.Β 

The Edition will be sold in all existing M4 markets until April, which is presumably when we can expect to see the next generation, with the UK set to receive 10 per cent of the 750-car production run. The car will make its debut at the Nurburgring DTM final in November, with deliveries presumably beginning not long after. Prices are yet to be confirmed for any market; those who are interested in a Competition and can do without the stripe might be interested to know that standard cars are now available for less than Β£35k…

Glorious shame they cant apply some proper heritage colours to a Heritage edition.

BMW Singapore did a much better job with their M3 Heritage Collection releasing it in just three classic colours:
- Dakar Yellow
- Daytona Violet
- British Racing Green

I may be wrong, but I think they are the colours they are because those are the 3 colours on the M badge.... smile

Regular M4 can be had for 54k versus a list price of 70k - see TRL for details

You'd need to be a real fanboy/girl to pay the extra for one of these

Imola red one of my favourite BMW colours along with Carbon Black. I’m not sure it suits the M4 as much as the E46 and E39 era BMW’s though.

Press shots don’t do it justice at the moment, will reserve judgement.

Not like it matters as I can’t afford a standard M4 let alone one of these hehe

They should have put a huge deep spoiler on the front, a massive wing on the back and painted them white with their competition colour stripes down the sides. Called them the BMW M4 Batmobile. That would have been epic

These look well dull.

I love that Velvet Blue one smokin I've always been a really big fan of the M4(warts and all). The performance/torque and overall package really appeals. I'd love one eventually for sure.

Laguna Seca Blue is actually a great colour (from the E46 colour palate), but the press pictures certainly don't do it any justice.

In fairness, most press shots these days are terrible - computer messed shots that just don't look right...

I love M3s of any generation but I wonder if there’s any more PH’ers like each successive generation slightly less than the previous one.
I just see this as BMWs attempt to imitate Porsche and rinse customers...?

Nice idea, but I’m not really sure.

Imola red is one of, if not my all time favourite colours so it’s good to see it back; would like to see it in the flesh because the press shots are a bit crap.

Not sure about the stripes on the roof, it’s just, well a bit tacky and reminds me of the tricolour grilles that are so derided. The carbon weave is fab though, bringing a bit of colour to a rather somber cabin.

No doubt they’ll rinse you price wise, but I just do t feel that this generation is loved enough to justify it.
