BMW M3 Edition unveiled

A limited-run, special edition of BMW's M3 performance car goes on sale in July.

Exterior changes include dark chrome trim for the grille, side air vents and exhaust tailpipe trim. There are also bespoke door mirrors and alloy wheels and a lightweight carbon-fibre roof.

Only four colours white, black, yellow or blue - are available, while the suspension has been lowered by 10mm for even sharper handling.

The interior features special leather trim with contrasting stitching and the armrest and centre console trim is finished in white on black or white cars.

Power comes from the same V8 petrol engine as the standard M3.

The M3 Edition is only available as a coupe, with a production run limited to six months. There's a 3000 over the standard M3 model, with prices starting at 53,435.
