BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN — QAF Auto on Friday rolled out BMW’s new generation of high-performance sports cars — the M3 Competition Sedan and M4 Competition Coupé. 

The luxury M series models were built to impress, taking track-optimised performance and everyday usability to a higher level.

Car enthusiasts get the chance to immerse themselves in the luxury M series models this weekend at QAF Auto’s BMW M Town.

QAF Auto General Manager Alisa Khoo said, “The M Weekend gives visitors the opportunity to touch and feel these high-performance sports cars for the first time.

“These cars are highly sought-after, so we urge everyone to make their way down to BMW M Town this weekend to catch a glimpse before they are sold,” she added.

HRH Prince Mohamed Bolkiah’s son, YAM Pg Muda Abdul Mu’min, attended the car launch along with QAF Brunei Chief Executive Officer Albert Lau.

Eye-catching design makes a statement

QAF Auto said another common feature between the new BMW M cars is the “spectrum of emotions sparked by their powertrain and chassis, visually expressive design, and a new M-specific control or operation system”.

The distinctive body design of the all-new M3 Competition Sedan and M4 Competition Coupé sends a bold statement of its performance and engaging driving experience.

The sports car proportions further highlight the athletic character of the models.

Adaptive LED headlights with BMW Laserlight are specified as standard in the models available in Brunei.

Both models come with BMW’s Park Distance Control sensors, allowing drivers to manouevre tight spaces with ease.
