BMW of North America announced that the BMW M3 Frozen Black, the special edition of the German model dedicated to the U.S. market sold out extremely fast. As we previously talked, the current M3 E92 received yet another special edition, this time dedicated to the American customers that are not very satisfied with the standard BMW M3. In the beginning, it seemed that the spicy price tag won’t attract too many customers mainly considering that the Frozen Black edition brings no major improvements.
However, according to BMWNA, the BMW M3 Frozen Black sold out in around 20 minutes after the ordering phone lines opened. This is not the first time when a limited edition dedicated to the American customers vanished in a matter of minutes, the previous M3 Frozen Gray being sold out in just 12 minutes.
If the M3 Frozen Gray was manufactured in 30 units, the new Frozen Black special edition was available in only 20 units, one of them being reserved for the American division of BMW. According to BMW, the nineteen units will be delivered starting this month while the last model is expected to reach its customer by the end of July.
As expected, the BMW M3 Frozen Black brings no power upgrades, the same 4.0-liter V8 engine developing the same amount of power, 414 horsepower and 400 Nm of torque. Alongside an M Double Clutch Transmission (M-DCT), the German model sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 4,5 seconds.
The noteworthy modifications brought by this special edition are the new matte black exterior finish, 19-inch GTS alloy wheels, gloss black components and red brake calipers. At the interior, the customers benefit from carbon leather trim, Novillo leather upholstery, heated front seats, red stitching and the BMW Individual Enhanced Premium Sound System.
Other features of the M3 Frozen Black include BMW Assist with Bluetooth, Park Distance Control, Navigation System, iPod and USB connectivity, Real-time Traffic Information and Universal garage-door opener. A revised suspension able to lower the ground clearance by 10 mm is available too while the pricing starts at $79,650 but unfortunately is too late to place your order.
