BMW Announces UK-Spec M3 500 Limited Edition

Source: BMW | Published: Thu Mar 01, 2012

Exclusive new Limited Edition BMW M3 Coupe and Convertible models are coming to the UK from March this year. These special interpretations of the legendary high-performance 3 Series are available in a strictly limited, and suitably patriotic, color palette of Imola Red, Mineral White or Santorini Blue.

Just 500 of these models will be built (Coupe and Convertible combined), each one featuring an edition designation laser cut into the trim inlay on the dashboard. Mechanically, the Limited Edition 500 is unchanged over the M3 in technical specification, using the acclaimed 420 hp V8 engine, M-specific chassis with either six-speed manual or seven-speed M DCT transmission.

The three striking exterior colors of the BMW M3 Limited Edition 500 are complemented by the characteristic M-car signature details of the kidney grille surround, side gills and twin double exhaust pipes finished in dark chrome. In addition, both the Coupe and Convertible models come with BMW's high-gloss Shadowline exterior trim and are further accentuated by the 19-inch high-gloss black light-alloy wheels.

Each BMW M3 Limited Edition 500 will be trimmed with BMW's extended Novillo leather and also features contrast stitching on the sports seats and door panels. This stitching complements the exterior color of the car; Imola Red cars feature Black leather with Mugello Red stitching, Mineral White cars feature Fox Red leather with Black Stitching, and those cars finished in Santorini Blue feature Black leather with Tobago Blue stitching.

The cockpit of the Limited Edition 500 features BMW's Piano Black interior trim, with the edition designation - 'One of 500' - laser cut into the left-hand side of the inlay on the dashboard.

Customers of the BMW M3 Limited Edition 500 not only get an exclusive version of this Munich-bred sports car, they also benefit from a keen deal that sees well over 4,000 GBP worth of additional equipment included for only 1,000 GBP on top of the standard M3 Coupe and Convertible list price. Therefore the Limited Edition 500 version of the Coupe costs from 55,690 GBP, with the Convertible available from 59,785 GBP.
