BMW M3 30 Years American Edition, historical details
One of the details that has been most careful has been in the painting , the result of the work of BMW Group Designworks, one of the design departments of the company. They have opted for a cherry red with a “frozen” finish (Frozen Red II Metallic), as indicated by the company, to give that model a historic vehicle.
The bumpers, the footrests, the spoiler, the shock absorbers (with helical spring that can be adjusted) and the exhaust system , built in titanium and finished with carbon fiber have also been modified . In addition, an important number of M Performance logos and the 30th anniversary have been incorporated throughout its bodywork and aerodynamic additives. The last of the elements to stand out from its exterior are the tires, 19 inches in front and 20 inches behind, which have a golden finish.
As for the interior, it draws attention because of the conjunction that makes the colors white, blue and red , in a distribution and brightness far removed from current trends. It has its explanation, and that is to be seen with the perspective of history, because these are the proper colors of the M Performance models , with these tones so vivid and prominent, as are the colors that symbolize the United States , the country to which he pays homage.
Thus, the seats are made of Merino leather from the BMW Individual catalog , in a baquet style, with the logo embroidered on the headrests, the same fabric that decorates the dashboard and some trim on the sides.
