BMW held its BMW M Legendary Experience event in China last week, where they introduced another special M3 model for the Chinese market -- the limited production BMW M3 Carbon Edition coupe. The M3 Carbon Edition is limited to just 111 units, at a cost of 1.23 million yuan (approximately $189,000 USD), and goes on sale in July. It joins the M3 Matte Edition and M3 Tiger Edition as Chinese-market only M3 editions.

The M3 Carbon Edition features, you guessed it, a focus on carbon fiber. All 111 units features carbon fiber roofs, BMW Performance front lip splitters, trunk spoiler, and hood inlet surrounds. The paint is white pearl metallic (presumably "mineral white") and features black side striping which runs the length of the car, as well a Carbon Edition logo on the doors and door sills. Gloss black 19" Style 220 M3 wheels finish off the exterior's look.

The interior features genuine carbon fiber dashboard trim, each embossed with a "Carbon Edition One of 111" logo. Lots of color contrast is provided in the interior by use of white leather for the arm rests on the doors and center console, as well as a white stripe and white stitching for the seats. The headrests also feature a carbon fiber patterned material.

This is a cosmetic-only special edition M3 however, as there are no performance upgrades (unless you count the carbon fiber) to go along the cosmetic enhancements. Powering the M3 Carbon Edition is the standard 4.0L V8, matched to the DCT transmission.
