Limited units of the special BMW M3 Coupé Competition Edition arrive in Singapore.
BMW Asia today announced the launch of the limited-edition BMW M3 Coupé Competition Edition. Built in commemoration of the BMW M GmbH’s 40th anniversary (established since 1972), 450 units of the limited-edition car have been produced worldwide with just eight of them made available to the local market.
The limited-edition BMW M3 Coupé Competition Edition will only be available in BMW Individual Frozen Silver Metallic exterior paint with a deep metallic finish. Its exterior treatment also includes black hood intakes and dark chrome exterior trim for the kidney grills, the BMW M side gills and the exhaust tips, as well as the same 19-inch rims found on the BMW M3 GTS.
On the interior, the BMW M3 Coupé Competition Edition adds black extended Novillo leather with palladium silver accents and stitching on front seats, headrests, door trim panels and handles, centre console, and centre armrest, along with an Alcantara-covered steering wheel and a BMW M3 Chequered Flag logo inlay featured on the door sills. The carbon trim on the dashboard and centre console further complete the interior upgrades.
Apart from just improved looks, the BMW M3 Coupé Competition Edition has been reduced in height by 10mm, and the M3 GTS 19-inch wheels with wider offset for enhanced stability, a modified Electronic Damper Control, and higher-threshold programming for the M Dynamic Mode. The BMW M3 Coupé Competition Edition is powered by the high-revving 4.0-litre V8 engine that produces 420bhp, and is mated to an M DCT double clutch transmission which allows it to complete the century sprint in just 4.6 seconds.
The limited BMW M3 Coupé Competition Edition will be distributed by Munich Automobiles Pte Ltd. For more information, please call +65 6899 6996 or visit www.munichauto.com.sg.
