Bmw preparing M3 Tiger Edition for the Chinese market

Article by Christian A., on August 27, 2010

Recently, BMW was also reported to be producing the limited-run Frozen Grey M3 in the US. No official announcement has been given yet but it's believed that the Tiger Edition will be limited purely to cosmetic modifications.

The front fascia of the Tiger Edition is similar to that of the M3 GTS. It features blacked out kidney grilles and lower air intakes, and it is painted the same Fire Orange Metallic color as the GTS. 

The Tiger Edition will feature black 19-inch wheels with black chrome exhaust tips staring out the back like tigers' eyes. The interior gets more interesting.

M3 Tiger Edition gets black leather with contrasting orange stitching covering the seats. Embossed orange tiger's heads are featured on the headrests and the orange Tiger Edition emblem is also seen on the door sills.

The M3 Tiger Edition is expected to be powered by the same normally aspirated, 4.0-liter V-8 used across the M3 lineup (excluding the GTS) that delivers 414hp and 295 pound-feet of torque. 

BMW has yet to confirm if this edition will be limited to one option or if it will be available with both a six-speed manual and BMW's seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Previous reports say that only 250 units will be produced but so far, the price is undisclosed. BMW is expected to provide official information about the car in the next few weeks.
