Report: BMW’s M wants to introduce all-wheel drive to their road cars

A new report from Motoring.com in Australia reports that BMW is on the road to committing another move of sacrilege, expressing interest in all-wheel driven M-Performance cars following Mercedes-Benz’s success with 4MATIC driven AMG models.

Though after speaking with BMW’s Friedrich Nitschke, an all-wheel drive BMW M-car isn’t expected until after the next generation M5 and M6 come our way.

“I’ve looked at the numbers and 70 to 80 percent of E63 AMGs are all-wheel drive in the US now,” Nitschke told the outlet.

Mercedes-Benz hasn’t been the only one with all-wheel driven performance cars as Audi has been utilizing their Quattro system—their major selling point—and Porsche recently introduced their all-wheel drive Panamera Turbo.

BMW’s M-Performance Division is no stranger to employing high performance versions of BMW’s xDrive all-wheel drive system as we’ve seen with the X5 M and the X6 M. But for the first time ever, BMW’s road cars could see the option in the future.
