New Competition Edition M3 To Honor 40 Years of BMW
If you know BMW, you likely know M is known as "the most powerful letter in the world"1. What you might not know is that the M moniker dates back to 1972. And while BMW M models are not limited to the track, they have earned championship titles at nine different North American race events, from 1996 to 2011.
To celebrate the BMW M model's racing heritage and ability to make driver's heart race and bring tears to their eyes, BMW is creating 40 special, competition-edition M3 coupes to join their 2012 lineup. Each of the limited-production competition-edition M3 coupes will feature the same technological components and identical Frozen Silver exterior paint.
Taylor BMW would, however, like to note that the paint finish is exclusive to the M3 Competition Edition coupes. Unlike most paint finish options you'll find available on the market, this one is specially designed to draw attention to, and enhance, the car's smooth lines. And, it's complemented by contrasting black and dark-chrome exterior trim accents, including black M3 GTS wheels.
The BMW M3 Competition Edition's cool look transcends the exterior to the interior where drivers will find Extended Novillo Leather appointments accented with silver. BMW even added a M3 checkered flag logo inlay in the steering wheel and along the door sills, to honor BMW's long racing heritage, as well as authentic carbon-fiber detailing along the dash and center console.
The M3 Competition Edition will boast such features as:
- 414 Horsepower V8
- 0-60 in 4.5 seconds (.2 seconds faster than standard M3)
- 10 mm Lower Than Standard M3
- Wider-Offset Wheels
