As the Chinese automotive market continues to grow and play a very important role in the automotive industry, we fully expected to see more cars developed especially for it. And just how Europe got the M3 GTS , China will also be getting its own BMW M3 special edition. It will be called the Tiger Edition and will be limited to 250 units.
This special edition is appropriately named the Tiger due to the fact that 2010 is "The Year of The Tiger" in China. In fact, it starts on February 14, 2010 and ends on February 2, 2011. The tiger is also a symbol of bravery so the name was carefully chosen to excel in this particular market.
The M3 Tiger will be wrapped in Fire Orange metallic paint (same as the GTS) with contrasting black touches on the air intakes, the kidney grills, and chrome exhaust tips. The exterior package is finished by 19 inch black wheels.
On the interior it will get Novilla black leather with orange stitching, and, of course, a unique Tiger logo.
The Tiger Edition will join the 2010 Bentley Continental Flying SpurSpeed China and the 2010 Lamborghini Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce China Limited Edition , among other special editions made especially for China.
