BMW M’s 50 year anniversary celebration continues with yet more special edition models. The latest special editions are based on the M4 Coupe for Europe and China and the M3 for North America and have been badged the Edition 50 Jahre BMW M. ‘Jahre’ is the German word for ‘years’ – so essentially the car is the ‘Edition 50 Years BMW M’.
