It seems that BMW is really spreading the love with the many special edition M3 models they’ve scattered all over the world. Just a few weeks ago the Chinese market received the M3 Tiger Edition and Australia received its BMW M3 Pure Limited Edition . This time, BMW felt the need to provide the Japanese with their own special M3. It is called the M3 Competition Package, and yes it is painted in the same Fire Orange metallic paint as both the Tiger and GTS models.
Other than the paint job that customers will either love or hate, the M3 will receive black 359M styling wheels (19 inches in size), black painted air intakes on the bonnet, black kidney grills, and chrome exhaust tips. BMW has also not left carbon fiber out as the material was used in the exterior mirrors, rear spoiler, and the inserts on the interior.
The BMW M3 may look a faster with all of these extras, but under the hood you’ll find the usual 420 HP, 4.0 liter V8 engine. There hasn’t been any mention of how many units will be produced for the Japanese market or how much it’s going to cost, and speculation based on previous models offers a variety of options. There were only 50 of the M3 Pure Limited Edition models built, each priced at $135,000-$148,300, but the BMW M3 Tiger Edition got 250 units with prices yet to be revealed.
