Some moments ago BMW North America released a Limited Edition BMW M3, available exclusively for the U.S. market: the 2011 Frozen Gray M3 Coupe with the Competition Package. Only 30 units of the 2011 Frozen Gray M3 Coupe will be produced, and as we expected, they will be offered with a special exterior color, exclusive sport seats and special interior elements that will differentiate the Limited Edition M3 from the standard model.
The 2011 Frozen Gray M3 Coupe is launched near the 25th anniversary of the original BMW M3, which is now at its fourth generation. To mark this moment, the M3 Coupe dedicated to BMW enthusiasts will be painted in a special matte-gray paint, Frozen Gray, with a deep metallic luster, which highlights the athletic contours of the M3. The interior will be unique too, a combination of Fox Red / Black bi-color Novillo leather.
A true M car, the 2011 Frozen Gray M3 Coupe continues the tradition of innovation and passion for driving by incorporating key changes to the M3’s dynamic qualities. The Limited Edition M3 Coupe will be powered by the 4.0-liter, 414-horsepower M V8 and equipped with BMW’s M Double Clutch Transmission (M DCT), which lowers the 0-60mph acceleration time of the M3 to 4.5 seconds from 4.7 (6-speed manual).
The 2011 Frozen Gray M3 Coupe sports the new M3 Competition Package, which reduces vehicle ride height by 10mm and includes unique 19” wheels with wider offset for enhanced stability, standard Electronic Damping Control with enhanced programming, and higher-threshold programming for the M Dynamic Mode.
At the inside we will find the typical M design elements, Carbon Leather trim and heated sport front seats.
