What’s even more interesting, BMW will also be bringing back 50 iconic and historically significant BMW M paint finishes will be offered for selected models in the anniversary year.
BMW fans will surely remember iconic, era-defining colors such as Dakar Yellow, Fire Orange, Daytona Violet, Macao Blue, Imola Red or Frozen Marina Bay Blue throughout BMW M's 50-year history.
The BMW logo with the shifted semicircles in blue, violet and red was first used in 1973 on the racing car of BMW Motorsport GmbH, which had been established a year before.
Even beyond the motorsports scene the M logo and brand became synonymous with most powerful and exhilarating models.
BWM M GmbH, as its been called since 1993, is hoping for a big year in 2022.
For the first time, the company is launching a BMW M3 Touring in the course of 2022. In addition, fans of the brand can look forward to a special model of the BMW M4 Coupé series (likely the M4 GTS) and second-generation BMW M2 is also already at an advanced stage of its series development process.
Alongside, the electrification of the BMW M brand is also being driven forward. In 2022, the first electrified high-performance model in the history of BMW M GmbH will be launched.
Arvind can't remember a time when he didn't wheel around a HotWheels car. This love evolved into an interest in Tamiya and RC cars and finally the real deal 1:1 scale stuff. Passion finally lead to formal training in Mechanical Engineering. Instead of the bigger picture, he obsesses with the final drive ratio and spring rates of cars and spends the weekends wondering why a Perodua Myvi is so fast.
