The exclusive new Limited Edition BMW M3 Coupe and Convertible models arrive in the UK this month. These special interpretations of the 3 services are available in limited colour palettes of Imola Red, Mineral White or Santorini Blue. Only 500 models will be built of the coupe and convertible combined. Each model features an edition designation laser cut into the trim inlay on the dashboard.
The car is powered by the acclaimed 420hp V8 engine, M specific chassis with either six speed or seven speed M DCT transmission. The BMW M3 is capable of 0-62mph in just 4.6 seconds and on to a limited top speed of 155 mph. Despite the impressive performance figures the car still returns 25.2mpg on the combined cycle due to the BMW EfficientDynamics technologies including Brake Energy Regeneration.
The interior of each BMW M3 Limited Edition 500 will be trimmed with BMW’s extended Novillo leather and also features contrast stitching on the sports seats and door panels. This stitching complements the exterior colour of the car; Imola Red cars feature Black leather with Mugello Red stitching, Mineral White cars feature Fox Red leather with Black Stitching, and those cars finished in Santorini Blue feature Black leather with Tobago Blue stitching.
The Limited Edition 500 version of the Coupé costs from £55,690, with the Convertible available from £59,785.
