BMW launches new M3 Coupe Edition

BMW has unveiled a new limited edition M3 giving motorists access to the manufacturer's racing pedigree.

The German car maker has made its new special Edition M3 distinguishable from the standard M3 Coupe with a lower ride height and unique enhancements.

Available in three colour combinations: Alpine White, BMW Individual Dakar Yellow and BMW Individual Monte Carlo Blue, the car will stand out from its counterparts with the interior mirroring the cars' livery with body-coloured stripes on the standard leather seats.

The car also features a dark chrome shadow-coloured kidney grille, side vents, bonnet vents, twin exhaust tailpipe and black wing mirrors, which help to differentiate the model from other M3 variants.

Buyers have a choice of the standard 19-inch alloy wheels in silver or alloys which are finished with black gloss as an extra.

The quality continues on the inside with a number of individual touches including a chequered flag motif on the door sill plates, representing the car's racing history as Touring Car champion.

Prices for the new M3 Coupe Edition start at £53,435 and it is only available in a coupe model.
