Minichamps BMW M history
BMW M, M (for Motorsport) was initially created to facilitate BMWs racing program, which was very successful in the 1960s and 1970s. As time passed, BMW M began to supplement BMW's vehicles portfolio with specially modified higher trim models, for which they are now most known by the general public. These M-badged cars traditionally include modified engines, transmissions, suspensions, interior trims, aerodynamics, and exterior modifications to set them apart from their counterparts. All M models are tested and tuned at BMWs private facility at the Nurburgring racing circuit in Germany.
