HISTORY.

The Touring models from BMW M – high-performance by tradition.

A high-performance M automobile combined with the variability of a Touring model? This idea excited the engineers at BMW M already back in the mid-1980s. After an elaborate development phase, BMW M presented the first BMW M5 Touring to the world in 1992. And the public was thrilled: No competitor model in this class had the performance of the M automobile, which was largely hand-built in Garching by Munich.
The fourth generation of the BMW M5 was the first Touring to bear the M badge after an interruption of twelve years. The model with the legendary 10-cylinder engine and 507 hp was already a sports car for individualists as a sedan – as a Touring it achieved rarity status.
In 2000, the M GmbH presented the BMW M3 Touring Concept. With its concept designed for maximum dynamics, the prototype was a pointer to the future.
