BMW M4 M Heritage Edition special model launched

Only 75 of the limited-edition BMW M4 Heritage Edition models are coming to the UK and they’re on sale now

The BMW M4 is now available in a limited-edition M Heritage Edition spec to celebrate BMW’s motorsport history. As a new BMW 4 Series is due to arrive in 2020, this model is the current M4’s swansong and is limited to just 750 units worldwide, of which 75 are coming to the UK. It’s available to order now with deliveries scheduled for November, although full pricing is yet to be revealed.

Based on another special edition, the M4 DTM, the M Heritage Edition features several styling differences to the regular M4. Three paint shades are offered - Imola Red, Laguna Seca Blue and Velvet Blue metallic - which mirror the coloured stripes of the BMW M Sport logo. The carbon-fibre reinforced plastic roof gets subtle stripes in these colours, and is joined by 20-inch lightweight alloy wheels in matt grey.

Inside, each car gets Merino leather sports seats with large cutouts in the seatbacks - perhaps to save weight. Three upholstery colour schemes are available, depending on the paint colour you pick, but all are unique to the M Heritage Edition and feature bi-colour stitching.

You’ll find M Heritage written on the carbon-fibre dashboard trim finisher and embossed on the front headrests. It’s also found on the new kickplates on the door sills, alongside a numbered plaque to show the car’s limited-run status.

There are no mechanical changes to the M4 Heritage Edition but the performance is astonishing anyway. The BMW M4 produces 444bhp from its six-cylinder petrol engine and gets from 0-62mph in just 4.3 seconds. BMW claims 27.2mpg and 203g/km, although fuel economy is unlikely to be a concern for most buyers.

While pricing hasn’t been finalised yet, it’ll be much more expensive than the regular M4, which starts at just over £62,000. However, due to its exclusivity, it should hold its value relatively well and be sought after by collectors.
