BMW M3 Frozen Black edition available in Australia

October 31, 2011

BMW has announced the special BMW M3 Frozen Black edition is available in Australia. Just 12 examples are set to go on sale, making for a unique and sure-to-be rare collectible in the future.

Like many new ‘black’ edition performance cars that seem to be popping up from various automotive stables, the BMW M3 Frozen Black edition comes with a distinct matt black theme.

The BMW M3 Frozen Black features black 19-inch alloy wheels and a black and red-highlighted style throughout. There’s black exhaust tips, black sill panels as well as red brake calipers and black Novillo leather seats inside with red stitching.

Under the bonnet, the BMW M3 Frozen Black edition gets the normal 4.0-litre V8 developing 309kW of power and 400Nm of torque. It’s able to power the M3 Coupe off from 0-100km/h in 5.0 seconds.

Unlike the BMW M3 Pure Edition – which was an Australian exclusive, the Frozen Black is produced through BMW international, and is on sale in various countries.
