BMW M cars are made for race tracks, so just how roadworthy are they?

Developed for เกมยิงปลา the race track yet versatile enough for everyday driving, the M3, M4 and M5 models allow you to configure the engine, steering and brake settings according to your whim, as we discovered on a recent test-drive.

Few cars trigger the trifecta of power, emotion and desirability in petrolheads like a BMW M model. They are the very personification of performance, saying as much about its driver and their personality, skill, and ability.

They’re complex creatures, you see. Supercharged and highly configurable vehicles flexing supreme agility and requiring a certain degree of proficiency to coax the best out of these beasts.

So what a treat it was when we had the opportunity to drive not just one M model, but three in a day when we put the new M3, M4 and M5 through their paces through the city at a recent M Power Day with BMW.

With JW Marriott Hotel Singapore South Beach as our starting point, we zipped through different routes from Upper Peirce Reservoir to Changi Airport with pit stops in between, interchanging vehicles in succession as we tested their muscle and might.

And a delight to drive they are – particularly if you know what you’re doing – and favourites quickly emerged, as each offers a distinctive drive experience thanks to their high configurability.

One would therefore benefit from a little tutorial of the electronic operating systems because the beauty of these babies is their ability to deliver a tailored drive experience, based on your choreography of the various settings.

This gives the trio of rear-wheel drives something of a transformer character, changing the way they behave with just a few flicks – making them as versatile and adaptable for the race track as for everyday driving.
