BMW Celebrates 40 years with M3 Coupé Frozen Silver

BMW-M3-Frozen-Silver BMW will celebrate the 40th anniversary of its high-performance M division with a limited run of M3 Coupé Frozen Silver Edition models.

Only a hundred of the 420-hp, V8-equipped models will be produced, set to go on sale in the UK in June.

M components include the standard 7-speed DCT transmission and variable differential, while bespoke features are a unique Frozen Silver metallic paint, a first for BMW, matte black alloy wheels, dark chrome exhaust, side gills and kidney surrounds, and Jet Black hood intakes. A high-gloss Shadowline exterior trim finishes off the exterior.

Black Novillo leather with contrast stitching and Palladium leather armrests and inserts highlight the interior, along with an Alcantara-clad steering wheel with M3 chequered flag motif. Splashes of carbon fibre underscore M’s sporty cred. An M-Power stitched handbrake and limited edition plaque complete the cachet.

All told, it’s a little over $14K in equipment over the standard M3 for just over $6,000. Brit fans of the M Coupé can order theirs for about $93,500.
