BMW M3 Edition Model – Exclusivity at its Most Exclusive
There will be just three examples of the|
2009 BMW M3 Edition available in Australia
3rd June, 2009
Powerful, aesthetic design, supreme performance and
exclusive style – BMW Group Australia has announced a strictly limited number of highly exclusive
M3 Edition Models, will make their way to Australia towards the end of the year.
Based on the BMW M3 Coupé, the M3 Edition Model offers a choice of no less than four highly
individual configurations boasting perfectly harmonised modifications in body design and interior
features, together with special light-alloy wheels.
BMW Group Australia has been fortunate enough to secure just three exclusive BMW M3 Edition
Models for Australia.
Individual highlights both outside and inside.
The BMW M3 Edition Model comes with exclusive exterior paintwork individually matched to a
tailored interior design. The body comes either in Alpine White Non-Metallic, Black Non-Metallic,
Dakar Yellow Non-Metallic or Monte Carlo Blue Metallic and is combined with BMW Individual
High-Gloss Satin Chrome to accentuate the truly sophisticated character of the BMW M3 Edition
Special colour interior highlights also add an individual touch to the BMW M3 Edition Model,
from the centre console to the armrests on the door panels. At the same time the Edition Model
comes with interior décor trim in Carbon Structure Leather with white contrasting seams. The seats
in Black Novillo Leather feature bespoke contrasting seams as well as vertical trim stripes on the
upper section of the backrest and at the front of the legrest, dependent on the exterior colour.
And last but certainly not least, entry trims in Checkered Flag Design bearing the “M3“ model
designation give the Edition Model yet another highlight.
Special rim design.
The M3 Edition Model receives specially designed 19-inch forged M light-alloy rims in
double-spoke design in either black, classic rim colour or in a special white contrasting colour
with polished spokes.
BMW M3: supreme performance with eight cylinders and seven gears.
The BMW M3 Edition Model gives this high-performance athlete a particularly striking look also reflected
by the car’s driving dynamics based on a unique all-round concept and drivetrain/suspension technology
inspired by motor sport. The V8 high-speed power unit of the BMW M3 develops maximum output of 309 kW/420 hp
from 4.0 litres.
Power is transmitted to the rear wheels either through the six-speed manual gearbox featured as standard
or through the optional M double-clutch gearbox with Drivelogic enhancing both the dynamic performance and
the all-round efficiency of the BMW M3 all in one. In this case acceleration to 100 km/h comes in 4.6 seconds
(six-speed manual: 4.8 seconds) and average fuel consumption in the EU test cycle is 11.9 litres (six-speed
manual: 12.4 litres/100 kilometres).
The BMW M3 Coupé comes as standard with a light weight carbon roof, Electronic Damper Control and the M
Drive menu enabling the driver to configure individual, M-specific suspension and drivetrain functions.
Pricing for the M3 Edition Model is yet to be confirmed.
