To commemorate 30 years of BMW M3, BMW Asia and Munich Automobiles have introduced the BMW M3 Heritage Collection Singapore Edition I, which pays tribute to the E36 M3. The $408,800 newcomer is now available for viewing in the Munich Automobiles showroom at 30 Teban Gardens Crescent.
The special collection honours the storied history of the E36 M3 with a production run of only 10 units, in three distinctive colours from its decorated past – Daytona Violet Metallic, inspired by the famous race and racetrack in Daytona, Florida; Dakar Yellow II, taken from the Dakar endurance rally that initially took place from Paris to Dakar; and British Racing Green, a posh paint job that originated in British racing history which began in the early 1900s.
The laser engraving on the dashboard’s carbon fibre trim includes the edition name and limited-edition volume, identifying the car instantly as a special M3. Drivers will be proud to know, and reminded daily, that they possess a very exclusive Bimmer.
The highlight trim finisher in paintwork colours in the cabin is a throwback to the second generation of BMW M3s. This neat touch adds to the exclusivity of the cars and pays tribute to the design elements that were signatures of a motoring legend in years gone by.
The cockpit is equipped with special lightweight M sports seats, which combine perfect support with exceptional comfort.
The exclusive Competition Package from BMW Motorsport GmbH brings high-performance dynamics and a sporty personality to the M3 Heritage Collection Singapore Edition I.
The Competition Package includes a tweaked Adaptive M Suspension, featuring new springs, dampers and anti-roll bars, as well as reconfigured driving modes (Comfort, Sport and Sport+). The standard Active M Differential on the rear axle and Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) have likewise been reconfigured to match the upgraded dynamics.
A 19bhp power hike takes the output to 450bhp. This extra power allows the M3 Heritage Collection
Singapore Edition I, with 7-speed M Double Clutch transmission, to go from rest to 100km/h in 4 seconds flat.
Completing the package are exclusive forged 20-inch M alloy wheels, black chrome tailpipes and extended BMW individual high-gloss Shadow Line exterior trim.
