No matter how many of us are car geeks about the importance of unique colors in high-performance cars, there will always be customers who prefer plain black. In fact, I remember interviewing former BMW M CEO Markus Flasch when he was F87 M2 Competition He was new and we asked him what his favorite color was. It was black on black.

There are some great throwbacks to the classic M design – the box fenders and Hofmeister Kink – and there are some huge departures – the box grilles, rear fender fangs.
