The Fastest BMWs of All Time

The BMW brand is known for its luxury, performance, and reliability. But many people don’t know that they have some of the best performance cars on the road. With a history of racing and making high-performance cars since the early 1900s, BMW has been building vehicles that are fast and fun to drive for almost a century. But what are the fastest BMWs? We’ve compiled our list of five of the fastest BMWs you can find on the road today as determined by 0-60 mph in seconds (or less).

BMW M3 Competition -xDrive Sedan

BMW’s 3-series is one of the best-selling cars in its segment and a favorite among enthusiasts. It offers a nice balance between performance and everyday usability, making it an excellent choice if you want to drive something fast without sacrificing your daily commute.

The BMW M3 Competition is the fastest variant of the 3-series available today. It produces a peak power of 473 hp from its twin-turbocharged 3.0 liter straight six engines, which also comes with 479 lb-ft of torque. Thank this power to upgrades unavailable on non-M variants, such as a carbon fiber roof and underbody panels made from aluminum instead of steel.

The xDrive sedan versions are much heavier than their RWD counterparts by almost 100lbs. This, in turn, aids in their performance but does not affect their ability to handle corners or high speeds, which is why they are so popular among drivers looking for comfort and speed!

BMW M5 Competition (2021)

The BMW M5 Competition is one of the fastest BMW models in the range, attributed to its lightweight carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) roof panel and bonnet. The CFRP allows for reduced weight and, therefore, more incredible performance on the road.

With a 0-60 mph time of just 3.3 seconds, this car can take you from standstill to speed in no time at all. It also boasts a top speed of 192 mph, making it one of the fastest BMW variants of the F90 generation M5.

The engine is based on the same 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 as before but now produces 650 horsepower. It still features an eight-speed automatic gearbox and all-wheel drive (AWD), but with tweaks to provide more rear-axle bias for better handling characteristics when you want them—You can switch the car between AWD and rear-axle biased with a button flick.


The BMW M4 GTS is the fastest BMW ever to be made. It has a 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine, which produces 493bhp and 443lb-ft of torque.

That makes for a 0-62mph time of 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 196mph – that’s pretty quick! The car also has cutting-edge motorsport technology, but it’s also street legal, so you can drive it on public roads if you want to (though we’re not sure if your insurance would cover you).

It weighs 30kgs lower than the standard M4, meaning that despite its performance capabilities, it will still feel very manageable when driven, usually on the road.

BMW M8 Competition (2022)

If you want one of the fastest BMWs ever made, then the M8 Competition is. It lives up to its name with a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine that puts out 617 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque.

The transmission is an eight-speed M Steptronic, and it can switch to rear-axle drive when needed (for example, when cornering). And if that wasn’t enough for them already, a test drive on them indicated that they could reach 0-60 mph in just 3 seconds!

BMW M5 CS (2022)

The BMW M5 CS is the most powerful car in BMW’s racing division’s history. It packs a 4.4-liter V8 engine that produces 635 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque, making it capable of going from 0 to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds and reaching a top speed of 189 mph.

It has an 8-speed M Steptronic transmission with a Drivelogic feature that allows drivers to customize their driving experience based on their preferences or the conditions they find themselves in. It also includes the M xDrive all-wheel drive system for extra traction.


There are many BMWs on the market. The cars are available in various styles and sizes, from sports cars to sedans and SUVs. Many owners customize their BMWs with aftermarket parts, improving performance and efficiency significantly.

While this list is in no particular order, it is subject to change. It is important to note that these are some of the fastest BMWs on the market, but more models are also coming out soon. BMW has invested heavily in their future, which shows through these fantastic vehicles!
