In 2010, to celebrate the year of the tiger in China, BMW launched the M3 Tiger Edition, a special edition M3 Coupe available in limited quantity. Just a year later, BMW is preparing to introduce another special M3 Coupe for the Chinese market. Dubbed Matte Edition, the new M3 limited edition offers buyers the choice of two unique exterior paints, black matte or gunmetal grey.
The bespoke colors are creating by combining a metallic finish with a silky matte clear coat. The M3 Matte Edition also includes black chrome side air intakes, red brake calipers, lightweight 19″ high-gloss alloy wheels and blacked out exhaust pipes.
Inside, as expected, carbon fiber has been extensively used, starting with the trim and matching special black carbon fiber leather for the seats along with contrasting red seams for the seat edges and door armrests.
The Chinese-market BMW M3 Matted Edition is powered by the same naturally aspirated 4.0-liter V8 engine found across the standard M3 lineup that churns out 420 horsepower and 400Nm of peak torque.
Pricing and availability are yet to be announced.
