Hard-To-Get Coupes Finished In Matte Gray Or Matte Black
With a decidedly more sinister look than last year’s ferocious M3 Tiger, BMW’s newest limited edition M3 Coupe is set to arrive in China just in time for spring. Sporting a unique matte paint job, only 40 “Frosted Edition” M3s will be available in China, 20 in black and 20 in gray. Bolstered by the success of the China-only M3 Tiger, all 30 of which sold out instantly last September, as well as the popularity of the “M Legend Experience Day” event held in four cities (Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Chengdu) last December, it was likely an easy choice for BMW to introduce its “Frosted Edition” M3 to one of the company’s most important markets.
Despite their hefty price tag of 1.2 million yuan (US$187,000), expect these all-black (or all-gray) cars to be snapped up almost as quickly as they arrive in the country.
