BMW to launch 10 exclusive models in India on 50th anniversary of M series cars
BMW India is all set to celebrate 50 years of its M performance brand with 10 new special edition cars for its customers. The German carmaker has announced that it will launch these 50 Jahre M Edition cars exclusively for Indian buyers in coming days. Though the carmaker has not given any launch timeline of these cars, they are expected to be available soon at BMW dealerships through bookings on its online platform.
BMW is celebrating 50 years of its BMW M GmbH wing, which was earlier known as the BMW Motorsport GmbH. This wing manufactures high-performance BMW cars which are sold in global markets under the M performance brand.
Announcing the initiative, Vikram Pawah, President of the BMW Group in India, said, “M is the strongest letter in the world and in its 50th anniversary it is stronger than ever. Inspired by motorsport, BMW M philosophy is the perfect interplay of dynamics, agility and precision while being suitable for everyday use. However different the vehicles and their drivers might be – we all love the faster heartbeat, the adrenaline and goose bumps triggered by every M car. To celebrate M’s fascinating history, BMW India will launch 10 alluring ‘50 Jahre M Editions’ across the product portfolio. We are also excited to share that later this year we will launch BMW M Certified dealerships, a one-stop-shop for an unbeatable purist experience. Above all, this jubilee is dedicated to drivers, the brand’s friends and all M enthusiasts."
