BMW UK has released pricing for the new BMW M3 30 Jahre special edition which was unveiled last weekend at the M Festival. Designed to celebrate 30 years since the original E30 M3 was introduced, the limited edition F80 M3 is equipped with the Competition Package and will be available in only 30 units in the UK, each priced at £82,675 ($120,840).

The Competition Package comprises an increase in engine output by 19hp to 450hp and a combined fuel consumption of 34mpg with 194 g/km CO2 emissions. Also included on this model is the Adaptive M suspension, which has been comprehensively aligned to the increased performance. Optimized features also include new springs, dampers and stabilizers, modified characteristic curves of the three modes COMFORT, SPORT and SPORT+ as well as a correspondingly modified standard Active M differential on the rear axle and Dynamic Stability Control feature (DSC).


The special M3 needs only 4.0 seconds to reach 100km/h (62mph), while top speed is electronically capped at 155 mph (250 km/h).

The edition model also features exclusively designed M gills in the front wings bearing the logo “M3 30 Jahre”. It comes painted in a Frozen Silver metallic paint, 20-inch M light alloy wheels wrapped in 265/30 front and 285/30 rear tires, carbon fiber-made splitter, mirror caps, rear spoiler and diffuser.


Inside, the cabin receives special embossed logos on the front seat headrests, carbon fiber trim, black and blue Merino leather upholstery, Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel and gear selector surround and “30 Jahre M3” logos on the door sill finishers.
