The M340i 50 Jahre Edition is available in two BMW Individual colour options: Dravit Grey and Tanzanite Blue.

The exterior design lends an exceptional sporty character and is exclusively available in BMW Individual paintworks Dravit Grey and Tanzanite Blue. The large BMW Kidney Grille mesh inserts are framed by a single surround and split up by wide bars that link to the headlight units. It is further underscored by the exclusive 50 Jahre M edition elements such as High-Gloss Black Kidney Grille, elements in Jet-black including window surround, mirror caps, 19-inch M light-alloy wheels, 50 Jahre M roundel in front rear and wheel hub caps. The car features adaptive LED headlights with BMW Laserlight which offers variable illumination of the road ahead.

The car features BMW xDrive, intelligent all-wheel-drive technology and exclusive suspension components from BMW M GmbH such as the M Sport suspension, variable sport steering, and M Sport brake to ensure precise handling and remarkable agility. The M Sport differential optimises traction and driving stability for different road surfaces, when changing lanes, and when accelerating out of a bend at a high speed.
