A few days ago BMW released some teasing information according to which a special edition of Bavarian creations is headed stateside.
Though it pains me to say this I have to say i was expecting a bit more, while what this car is is far less than disappointing it sort of doesn’t live up to the hype created around it.
The special edition promised to the Americans is entitled the 2011 M3 Frozen Gray Edition and it will only be available in 30 units all of which identically-equipped examples made exclusively for the United States.
The special part of these cars is justified with an exterior look done in Frozen Gray matte finish, an interior look in Fox Red & Black bi-color Novillo leather and that’s about everything.
Actually there’s a bit more that can’t really be seen but since BMW’s M3 is about as close as you can get to the Ultimate Driving Machine you should be able to feel the effect of these additions. They are made up of a trio of standard packages including the Competition kit which reduces vehicle ride height by 10mm and includes special 19-inch wheels with wider offset for enhanced stability, standard Electronic Damping Control with enhanced programming, and higher-threshold programming for the M Dynamic Mode.
While I’m a bit disappointed, I’m also sure that there’s a lot of people out there who want an M3 that isn’t like any other one you might end up next to at the lights.
