BMW presents us with the Edition limited to 500 units “30 Years M3”; and is that 30 years ago the Bavarian brand launched one of the most special models in its history, the BMW M3 e30. With him was a series of vehicles which, although they might be relatively “normal” cars in terms of performance, hiding a high potential under their bonnets.
Over these three decades have been 5 generations of BMW M3 available, to each one more spectacular and more powerful. A pity that in every generation have increased its size slightly and also their weight, losing much of the sensations of driving of the e30. But I also believe that a current M3 is not fun.
The “30 Years M3” Edition is only available in the BMW M3 and only you can choose with the exterior color Blue Macao, that when the brand launched the M3 e30 was already available in your color palette.
On the other hand, this limited series is based on the Competition Package offered as an option in the sports sedan. Mechanically account with the same drive of six cylinders in line with overfeeding, but with the Competition Package, the power increases up to 450 HP. Both sold with six-speed manual transmission or with the dual-clutch 7-speed change.
It also receives the tuning specific chassis with new Springs, shock absorbers and anti-roll bars, as well as a new mapping in the modes of driving Comfort, Sport and Sport +, in addition to the operation of the differential limited slip M and stability control. The rims are 20-inch measures 265/30 front and 285/30 back.
On the outside the main changes with respect to the Competition Package arrive hand of some gills in the front wheel arches with the inscriptions of “30 Jahre M3” and attractive tires. Inside, the changes are more striking with specific seats embroidered with the name of the Edition, which also lies on the threshold of the door. Center console plate shows the number of unit “30 Years M3 x/500”.
According to BMW, the editing begin shipping this summer and will cost about $ 10,000 more than the M3 Competition Package, or what is the same thing, a “30 Years M3” M3 will cost some 107,000 euros approximately.
