To mark the 50th anniversary of the M Division, the original BMW motorsport symbol is back in 2022 for all M cars and those equipped with the M Sport package. Following an announcement made last November, the company has begun delivering to customers the available vehicles, including the Retro Touch. This is a free option in full-fat M cars and you won’t get stuck with them as regular badges can still be ordered.

This is one of the first cars from Skyscraper Gray’s M3 assembly line. The Polish car rental company Destio recently bought the car and was kind enough to share some pictures of their valuable property. They also have a Ford Mustang GT and Audi RS3 sedan that can be rented for at least a day or a month.

2022 BMW M3 Competition with Retro Badge 4 830x554

The BMW Motorsport GmbH was first used by race cars in 1973, with the iconic symbol adorning the front, rear and wheel hubs. The company began accepting orders for high-performance vehicles, including the Motorsport tie-in, at the end of January. Production began in March, and this M3 is an early receiver in Poland.

The retrolysis badge could be complemented by the historic paint lever relevant to the M car for decades. These include Fire Orange, Dakar Yellow, Macaw Blue, Daytona Violet, Frozen Marina Bay Blue and Emola Red. We think it looks great on this M3 too and many will want a BMW motorsport avatar. This is especially true because the classic symbol will only be available in 2022.

Get ready to see lots of M cars with new / old look in the coming months M2, M3 Turing, M4 CSL, and production-ready XM will arrive before the end of the year.

In the meantime, those staying in Poland will be able to rent the M3 competition, the equivalent of 80 380. There is a mileage limit for customers to drive it up to 250 kilometers (155 miles).
