2011 Bmw M3 Competition Package released in Japan

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 22, 2010

BMW has released the M3 Competition Package in Japan for the local market. Included in the series of special edition BMW M3 models, this vehicle is covered in the same Fire Orange paint (just like the one found on the Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Concept 358) that was used on the Tiger Edition in China.

This special model features quite a number of unique tweaks, including 359M styling wheels (19 inches in size and painted black), black painted air intakes on the bonnet, black kidney grills and chrome exhaust tips.

For its interior, BMW offers the car with carbon fiber trim, which matches the exterior mirrors housed in carbon fiber coverings. This car is equipped with a 4.0l V8 engine that delivers 420 hp and is mated to a BMW M dual clutch transmission.

With these descriptions, it’s clear that this special edition car meant for Japan is a lot similar to the Tiger car made for China. BMW has yet to reveal the information on the number of cars to be built or even how much one would cost.

The M3 Competition Package for Japan is the last in a line of special edition Ms released this year. The first model to come out was the BMW M3 Frozen Gray Coupe, which is available in the US. This was followed by the BMW M3 Frozen Edition intended for South Africa and then the Tiger Edition for China was released.

BMW is expected to announce further details about this Japanese special M3. As the end of the year is nearing, BMW is also expected to offer more exclusive versions of the M3.
