BMW has released a special edition M3 designed to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the M3 as a BMW model.
The aptly named BMW M3 30 Jahre Edition is based on the standard M3 in competition package guise. The 30 Jahre edition, however, receives 444 horsepower from its 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline six engine. Compared to the standard M3, that is a bump of 19 horsepower.
As with the standard M3, the Jahre edition is available with either a six-speed manual transmission or a Getrag 7-speed dual-clutch automatic box.
Also included in the Jahre edition is a handful of performance upgrades. The most notable of which is the inclusion of the Competition package’s adaptive suspension.
The Jahre edition rides on the same star-patterned wheels as seen on the M4 GTS.
Interior changes are minimal with the most notable changes being the specially trimmed sport seats and a dash mounted plaque commemorating the car.
Only 500 units of the M3 30 Jahre Edition will be built.
