In order to celebrate BMW’s sponsorship of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Game, the company has unveiled the London Performance special editions based on the 3-Series and 1-Series models. The Performance Edition models will add £1,500 ($2,400 at the current exchange rates) for the 1-Series model and £500 ($800 at the current exchange rates) for the 3-Series version.

The 1 Series Performance Edition will add M aerodynamic body styling, dark chrome 18" M light alloy wheels, High-gloss Shadowline exterior trim, a dark chrome exhaust tailpipe, and dark line rear lights. The interior will get sport seats with Royal Blue stitching, an M Sport multi-function leather steering wheel and gearshift leaver, floor mats with Royal Blue piping, and London 2012 exterior badges. The car’s sporty look is further enhanced by an M Sport Suspension.

The 3-Series Performance Edition will receive an M aerodynamic body kit, an M sport multi-function leather steering wheel, sport seats, floor mats with blue piping, 18" light alloy wheels, a chrome exhaust finisher, and London 2012 exterior badges.

Both Performance Edition models will be offered in four colors: Alpine White, Titanium Silver, Bluewater, and Black Sapphire.

Performance edition? Well, I really hope that they could justify that. Anyway, I’m still impressed on the looks of this vehicle even though it is only looked like their other vehicle.

I noticed that this one, is only looks so simple and ordinary, but I’m glad that it had a reasonable price for a special-edition car. Anyway, I wonder if what will really be the engine of this one?

Not impressive at all but I must say that the car lines add some beauty on this car and I’m just a little bit on what the interior of it will looks like.

The specification of the car fits on the looks. Most BMW uses the color silver and black for their cars and I also like the offered color changes. I can say that this tribute for London will also be a huge market sale.
