BMW set to launch a limited edition version of its 414bhp V8 M3 Coupe


BMW is launching a special edition of our current favourite M-car, the M3 Coupe.

While it’s not a lightweight special like the E46 M3 CSL, it should still be a pretty cool thing – the suspension is lowered 10mm, while there are cosmetic tweaks in the shape of black chrome exhausts and grille and the option of black-finished 19in forged alloys.

Paint options will all be exclusive to the M3 Edition, with Alpine White, non-metallic black, Dakar Yellow and Monte Carlo Blue.

The engine will remain unchanged, meaning the cracking 4-litre V8 stays. Bigger modifications will be reserved for future, more dramatic specials with a new CSL not being ruled out.

The M3 Edition will be on sale for six months, starting next month. It is set to cost £53,435, a rise of around £2500.

For details of more dramatic M3 modifications, head this way…
