What Does the BMW M Series Mean?

When you shop our BMW M Series inventory, you may be wondering what the BMW M Series is and what it means. The “M” in the BMW M Series stands for “Motorsport”, and the M Series was originally created to facilitate BMW’s racing program. Over time, the BMW M program began to supplement their vehicle lineup with modified vehicle models, which are now available to the general public. These new M Series vehicles have modified engines, transmissions, suspensions, interior trims, aerodynamics, and exterior modifications to set them apart from their BWM counterparts. So, when you get behind the wheel of a BMW M Series vehicle, you’re driving a top-of-the-line performance model that was manufactured to the highest standards of the BMW lineup. 

Where is the BMW M Series Built?

BMW has manufacturing plants in Germany, Mexico, China, South Africa, and America for the majority of their new vehicles. However, the BMW M Series is manufactured, tested, and tuned in BMW’s private facility at the Nürburgring racing circuit in Germany. This means that your BMW M Series model is being manufactured and overseen side-by-side by German engineers and mechanics, ensuring that it runs smoothly and has efficient performance whether you’re on the racetrack or out to run errands in Bellevue.
