BMW has been furiously releasing special editions recently, including the Frozen M3 Edition for S. Africa, 120i Performance Unlimited Edition for Japan, and E90 Dynamic Edition for S. Africa.

Bimmertoday is now reporting that BMW has plans to release a Limited M3 Tiger Edition to the Chinese market, to commemorate the current Year of the Tiger. Appropriately, the M3 Tiger Edition will feature the M3 GTS' fire orange metallic paint with black accented elements. Blacked out parts will include its style 359M 19" wheels, hood air inlets, kidney grills, and black chrome exhaust tips.

The interior will feature black leather Novilla with contrasting orange stitching. The front seat headrests will be embroidered with a unique tiger head emblem. And the door sill plates will bear a Tiger Edition Logo in fire orange metallic color. An estimated 250 copies will be produced. No details yet on any performance enhancements or photos, but stay tuned.

One thing is for sure, this will be a catchy and unmistakable M3!




Update with first photo of the interior - specifically the headrest with Tiger emblem:

What????

Tiger emblem on the headrests AND it's getting the fire orange. That's crazy.

I think we need an American special edition. Hmmm...what theme could it be based on?

How about the dollar bill or even a playboy version. It could have the playboy bunny on the headrests with velvet interior. Oh and we could add some special edition BBS 20 inch chrome spinners to spice it up.

I would buy the Knight Rider Edition as long as it had the red light up front and could fly over obstacles.

How about a Dukes of Hazzard General Lee version. We could finally get orange but I guess the downside would be that the doors wouldn't open.

I'm done for a Knight Rider edition or the old Dodge Viper show with the ever transforming Dodge viper that went into a 4X4 mode.

Seems like US customers always get shafted. We can get Individual here in Canada no problem, in fact its listed as an option in the online configurator as well.

Curious to see what this "Tiger" M3 will look like.

It will come with unbreakable glass able to resist an attack from a swedish blonde swinging a golf club.

We should have "Limited M3 McDonald Edition" for the U.S.
Melbourne Red with Phoenix yellow strips or the yellow "M" sign on the hood or door panels.
