BMW has announced the BMW M3 Coupe Frozen Silver Edition, a special model designed to commemorate 40 years of the BMW M Division.
Only 100 will be built, with each finished in Frozen Silver metallic paint and based on the driver-focused Competition Pack version of the M3. That means it gets 19-inch BBS alloy wheels, but instead of the usual polished finish, they are matt black. The M3’s side vents, grille and bonnet intakes are all finished in black too, with black exhaust tips finishing the menacing look.
Inside, there’s carbon fibre detailing and black leather seats as standard, with an Alcantara-wrap steering wheel that features a chequered flag logo that’s also used on the doorsills. The ‘M Power’ logo is stitched into the handbrake, while each Frozen Silver Edition comes with its own numbered aluminium plaque.
The 414bhp 4.0-litre V8 remains untouched, and is available only with the seven-speed double clutch gearbox, but the Competition Pack spec means that it rides 10mm lower, adds electronic dampers and has a tweaked stability and traction control system. The standard car’s 0-62 time of 4.6 seconds and 155mph electronically-limited top speed remain.
The BMW M3 Frozen Silver Edition goes on sale on 1 June from £58,720, which is £4,000 more than the standard M3 coupe.
