The new BMW M3 and M5 M Performance Editions

The new BMW M3 and M5 M Performance Editions

31.05.2012

Two exclusive new M Performance Editions for the BMW M3 and BMW M5 are being built by BMW M GmbH solely for the UK market. Just thirty of each model will be available costing 74,080 OTR for the M3 M Performance Edition and the M5 M Performance Edition is priced at 95,140 OTR.

Showcasing BMW Individual, these M Performance Editions will bring three new Frozen paint colours to the UK for the first time; BMW Individual Japan Red with a Frozen Red wrap, BMW Individual Frozen White and BMW Individual Frozen Blue. All are on sale now. To complement the striking exterior colours, all M5 M Performance Editions come with Full Black Merino leather upholstery and all M3 M Performance Editions come with extended Black Novillo leather upholstery, both with contrasting Mugello Red, Lotus White or Tobago Blue stitching as standard.

Floor mats with contrast piping, an Alcantara steering wheel, BMW Individual Piano Black interior trim with a ‘One of 30’ laser cut designation, front headrests with M stitching and door sills with ‘BMW M Performance Edition’ designation complete the look of the interior.

The new BMW M3 M Performance Edition features BMW’s class-leading 420hp V8 engine with power transferred to the road via a standard seven-speed M DCT transmission and variable M differential. The car also comes with the Competition Package as standard, which features 10mm lowered suspension, Electronic Damper Control with Sport mode and a revised DSC+ system.

Additionally, the BMW M3 M Performance Edition boasts an array of extra standard equipment including; 19-inch M Y-spoke Matt Black alloy wheels, Dark Chrome exhaust, side gills and kidney surround, jet black bonnet intakes, carbon-fibre front splitters, high-gloss Shadowline exterior trim, folding exterior mirrors and sun protection glass to complement its unique exterior. Adaptive headlights, DAB digital radio, a Harman/Kardon 13-loudspeaker system, BMW Professional Media Package, mobile application preparation, telephone USB audio interface and Internet add to the M3’s practicality. While the sliding front armrest, front seat heating and front and rear Park Distance Control complete the package. The extensive list of equipment, now standard, is worth 9,790.

The new BMW M5 M Performance Edition features BMW’s latest 560hp TwinPower Turbo V8 engine complete with race-bred chassis technology including an Active M differential and electronic damping control. Combining track-car dynamics with supreme touring comfort, the new BMW M5 M Performance Edition includes 22,075 worth of additional equipment as standard.

For this added value 20-inch M Double-spoke Matt Black alloy wheels, Dark Chrome exhaust, side gills and kidney surround, M Sport multi-function seats with lumbar support, powered bootlid operation, sun protection glass, split-folding rear seats, comfort access and soft close doors add to the already impressive standard equipment list.

I can't wait to see the Frozen Red in person. I wonder if it's any different than the matte red Revinora M3.

The "extra" M after M3 and M5 really sounds lame... Both rides are beyond sweet, but no need to toss another M at it. SILLY!

Wow, a frozen color?!.......good to see them doing something never done before

BMW has perfected two things: handling dynamics of their cars and the good old money grab.

That being said, I'm sure these will make someone happy so more power to them.


Cheers,

BMW is starting to challenge Porsche and Ferrari for most number of overpriced "special" editions.

At least Porsche and Ferrari usually carry performance upgrades as well.

Matt paint, competition package, carbon parts and a lot of other extras are included.

If I correctly understood, you get much more than what you pay... (?)

All I can see is you get matte paint, painted wheels and deviated stitching. Not much for the money. You can do this same car individual for US $10k (without the laser etched badge). Should have thrown in 60HP

With the Red White and Blue, I am guessing this is some sort of Olympics gimmick.

Looks nice but it's all show and no go.

Wish they'd add more performance to the "M Performance" edition instead of cosmetics.

BMW is starting to act like they are desperate to sell cars! too much money for a few cosmetics upgrades! I can just wrap the car on a frozen color, cheaper than what BMW charges, buy after market grilles, and tune it for less!!!!

I don't understand people who cry over no "power upgrade"...
These M cars already have enough power, probably more power than you can handle every day.
If you really want that "power bump" go get it yourself, don't ask BMW
