Lightbulb M3 Tiger Edition Official Beijing Reveal

Update: More Photos @ http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=425781

When the tiger roars
BMW M3 special edition for China.
2nd. Sept. 2010

via http://m-power.com/_open/b/editorial.jsp?lang=en

In China, 2010 is the metal tiger year. This signifies that the year 4707 of the Chinese calendar involves an encounter between hot ferocity and cold metal. And indeed, one look at the BMW M3 Tiger Edition is enough to show that this encounter has been fully realised; the vehicle has been produced in a limited edition of only 30 cars, exclusively for the Chinese market.

Outwardly, the Tiger Edition, which was presented this week in Beijing, represents a mixture of the BMW M3 GTS and a BMW M3 Coupé with the Competition Package, but without the carbon-fibre roof, since all BMW M3 coupés in China are sold exclusively with a glass sliding roof.

As befits the name of the model, each of the headrests is embroidered with an orange tiger’s head, while the entrance sills bear the legend ”Tiger Edition”. The black Novillo leather upholstery is also enhanced with orange stitching.

The coupe is a veritable eyecatcher, thanks to the Orange Metallic paintwork and black 19-inch wheel rims in 359M design.

The edging of the radiator grill, air inlets and gills, together with the dark anodised chromium exhaust pipe provide colour contrast.

Under the bonnet of the special edition is the standard 4.0-litre, 420bhp V8 engine with BMW M dual clutch transmission.

To maximise driving dynamics, the BMW M3 Competition Package is also included.

The Tiger Edition also marks the occasion of the BMW M3’s 25 anniversary in Beijing. The BMW M ancestral gallery on show in China stretches from the legendary BMW M1 to the 24h Nordschleife winner, the BMW M3 GT2, presented by BMW works driver, Jörg Müller. Even chairman of the BMW M GmbH managing board, Dr. Kay Segler, wore a BMW M leather jacket in a classic racing design, to demonstrate his affinity with tradition.

But for the most powerful letter combination in the world, it just as important to keep a sharp look ahead as it is to cultivate its magnificent history: the Middle Kingdom is currently growing into one the German automobile industry’s most important markets; BMW posted growth rates of over 100 percent in this region for the first half of 2010. And to cater for the rising demand for both BMW M models BMW Individual vehicles, a network of certified BMW M dealers will be set up in the country, similar to that in Germany. Clearly, the M in China is not just at the front of the showrooms, but in the hearts of all its supporters, which is just where it belongs.

I hope you're asking for an opinion from someone actually in China rather than just for any old Asian person, as if any Asian person can represent the entire Asian race

Either way, it's a silly question. What are they going to tell you that you can't see for yourself? What does being Asian have to do with anything?

Chinese* . The car is aimed directly towards them and their calendar/culture.

Just curious to as if it is as "Lame" to them as it is to many of us....

Thank you for pointing that out, sometimes people tend to think Asian = Chinese.

As for BMWinNorthdakota's request, i would answer that as an Asian- Non Chinese opinion.

Orange= Not something i (and i think you too) would buy, although, it sure is eyes catching.
Tiger heads everywhere =

Fuck. This. Car.
Sun roof= IMHO i wouldn't want it for an M, BUT, people still buy M3 verts which is obviously heavier so i guess if it comes standard i don't really mind

i think that because its the year of the tiger and a tiger is cool, they just made one for china. Would you want to have an M3 thats the monkey or panda edition, just because thats the year it was? That doesnt sound cool at all

I had a conversation with the manager of Marketing for the entire M Division in China. She works literally non-stop! What an amazing person who is truly dedicated to M.

The M3 Tiger Edition is a really special BMW that is perfect for their market. It's exclusive, powerful, limited edition, and M Powered! The M division China really worked long hours to produce a buzz for this vehicle. She was surprised that I knew so much about it, .

Then I showed her the links to bimmerpost and a smile spread across her face, excited that we're talking about it in the USA and other parts of the world.

Au revior,
