BMW M3 Special Edition – 30 Jahre

2017 M3 Jahre Special Edition

If you’ve been waiting for the perfect configuration of new M3 and the Competition Package wasn’t quite enough for you, now might be the time to take look with the limited edition 30 Jahre M3 announcement. Full details below, but highlights are a 0-60 time of 3.8 seconds with the auto and a reworked suspension (so maybe now it will handle on the limit like an M3 should). Full details from the press release below, but have to say I love the color – put on some less shiny wheels and that thing will look super mean. Price is a not cheap $83,250.

With the launch of the first generation of the BMW M3 in 1986, the BMW M GmbH, operating under the name BMW Motorsport GmbH at that time, revolutionized the sports car as it was built first and foremost for performance. The original M3 was developed as a homologation special to enter the World, European and German Touring Championship (DTM) racing. It was very successful in its time and is still considered as one of the purest high performance street legal sports coupes. To mark the 30th anniversary of this automotive icon, 500 “30 Jahre M3” (30 Years M3) special editions will be produced, of which 150 units will reach U.S. shores. The limited edition is available with a manual transmission for $83,250 plus Destination and Handling or with Dual-Clutch transmission for $86,150 plus Destination and Handling. [Read more…]
