BMW will start production of 150 units of its new matte-finished Frozen Edition models in Red, White and Blue in January 2013. This is your chance to grab one if you missed your chance when BMW offered just a handful of Frozen Grey and Frozen Black BMW M3 models in the U.S. The Frozen Edition models have an official MSRP of $76,395 (which includes destination charges).
All Frozen Edition models have the Competition Package as standard with the 19-inch matte black wheels, electronic damper control, and lowered suspension. It also gets the Premium Package that includes Black Novillo leather with color contrast stitching matching the exterior color, carbon leather trim, high-gloss black kindney grille bezels, side vents and rear exhaust tips, a carbon fiber roof panel, and a standard six-speed manual transmission.
If the car is meant to be used more on the road than on the track, the 2013 Frozen Edition models will be available with an M-DCT dual-clutch transmission as an option. They’re also offered with these options: the cold weather package, heated front seats, rear spoiler delete, satellite radio, moonroof and rear spoiler delete. The vehicle can be delivered at either in Munich or at BMW’s Performance Delivery Center in Spartanburg, South Carolina, where buyers could take part in the BMW M driving school.
Among the BMW M GmbH model variants, the BMW M3 is always the one that plays up its motorsport DNA. This make up is adapted to the first BMW M3 introduced in 1986. The application persisted all through the next two model generations. At present, this reign has been reapplied evidently in the 2007 version of the BMW M3.
Even though the latest model was built on the BMW 3-Series Coupé, the all-new model varies from the usual typical coupe with regards the appearance and features. The vehicle has a one of a kind style, drivetrain and suspension technology but its lightweight technology was given priority by the engineers at BMW M.
The realization of the advancement goal has been applied in terms of smart lightweight engineering. The goal is carried out by the vehicle's power-to-weight ratio of only 8.4 lb per horsepower.
Among others, the roof made out of carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic (CFP) is a major factor behind the lighter weight of the car.
Following the success of the BMW M GmbH, the new model is entirely fresh in terms of design concept and engineering, except in cases of few components that have been maintained.
Aside from the weight-support structure of the vehicle, only the bootlid, the two doors, the headlights and rear lights, and the windows were transmitted from the 3 Series Coupé. Other body parts, in comparison, were particularly created for the BMW M3.
