BMW farewells current M4 with ///M Heritage
Six of the 750 M4 ///M Heritage editions available globally set for BMW in Australia
1 Oct 2019
BMW Group Australia has secured six examples of the M4 ///M Heritage, which will serve as the swansong for the current-generation sportscar when they arrive early next year.
Part of a global production run of 750 units, the ///M Heritage is available in three variants, all of which are priced from $167,529 plus on-road costs – $11,000 more than the M4 Competition coupe they are based on.
Three versions differ in their paintwork and full Merino leather upholstery colour combinations from the BMW Individual catalogue, which reference the Bavarian’s brand motorsport history.
The Edition 1 combines Laguna Seca Blue paintwork with Silverstone and black upholstery with turquoise contrast stitching, while the Edition 2 mixes Velvet Blue paintwork with Silverstone and black upholstery with Velvet Blue and orange contrast stitching.
A bolder colour combination is found in the form of the Edition 3, which puts Imola Red II paintwork together with red and black upholstery with red and yellow contrast stitching.
Externally, the ///M Heritage is also identified by the BMW M stripes on its carbon-fibre roof panel as well as by its set of Orbit Grey 20-inch alloy wheels.
Inside, the ///M Heritage’s gloss carbon-fibre trim is uniquely interwoven with BMW M’s signature colours, while ‘Edition ///M Heritage 1/750’ lettering is also found on the passenger side of it as well as on the scuff plates.
The front headrests are embroidered with similar ‘Edition ///M Heritage’ lettering, while wireless smartphone charging is added to the list of standard equipment.
As with the M4 Competition coupe, the ///M Heritage is motivated by a 3.0-litre twin-turbo inline six-cylinder engine that produces 331kW of power at 7000rpm and 550Nm of torque from 1850-5500rpm.
With drive exclusively sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, the ///M Heritage sprints from standstill to 100km/h in a scant 4.0 seconds.
Claimed fuel consumption on the combined-cycle test is 8.8 litres per 100 kilometres, while carbon dioxide emissions are 204 grams per kilometre.
As reported, the Concept 4 was revealed at last month’s Frankfurt motor show, previewing the design of the second-generation 4 Series coupe that is expected to debut in 2020 ahead of the next M4, which should arrive about a year later.
