Consistency is the key.

Innovative lightweight construction
in the new BMW M3 Coupé.

Consistent lightweight design for optimum longitudinal and lateral dynamics. This includes high-strength bumpers, the complete front section, the CFRP roof, and the entire drivetrain. And the new V8 engine, too, weighs an amazing 15 kg less than the previous six-cylinder unit. Mass has been placed as close to the centre of gravity as possible, while maintaining the ideal 50/50 front-rear weight distribution. The chassis has also been stiffened to provide increased lightness and stability.
