BMW M in South Africa
South Africa has a rich history with BMW M vehicles. This ranges from what locals consider to be the predecessor to all M cars – the South African built BMW MLE 530 – to the South Africa specific M5 Pure Metal Edition (F10).
To attest to local customers’ insatiable appetite for “The most powerful letter in the world”, the South African market sold the third most M cars in the world, compared to overall sales figures. This was for the year 2019.
South Africa also hosted the biggest BMW M Festival in the world in 2017, attracting just under 20 000 fans.
