BMW is bringing us a new photo gallery of their top 3 Series model. The BMW M340i xDrive Sedan is shown here in Tanzanite Blue II Metallic, a BMW Individual color for the M Performance model. From November 2019, the Sedan model will also be available in BMW M340i First Edition guise.

Furthermore, the M Technic Package is available as an option for the new BMW M340i xDrive Sedan. The package adds two remote coolant radiators to meet the particularly high demands of the powerful six-cylinder. Speaking of the engine, the B58 3.0 liter unit makes 275 kW/374 hp, an increase of 35 kW/48 hp on the engine powering the previous range-topping models, while peak torque is up by 50 Nm (37 lb-ft) to 500 Nm (369 lb-ft).

When specified with the optional M Technic Package, the new BMW M340i xDrive Sedan comes equipped with bespoke M Sport brakes, whose four-piston fixed calipers at the front wheels exert their stopping power on larger 374-millimeter discs.

The BMW M340i First Edition will be offered in selected markets – including Italy, Spain, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, Belgium, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, the Middle East, Canada, Mexico and Brazil. Some of the features of the First Edition M340i is the BMW Individual paint finish in Frozen Dark Grey metallic, BMW Individual High-gloss Shadowline trim with extended features and 19-inch M light-alloy wheels.

The cabin is adorned by the BMW Individual Merino full leather trim in an exclusive Fjord Blue/Silverstone bi-color variant, a leather-covered BMW Individual instrument panel and M seat belts.

It’s unclear at the moment how many of the 340 units will be allocated to the US market. While the American customers get both the rear-wheel drive and the xDrive choices, European will make do with the all-wheel drive system only.
