BMW M3 Frozen Edition -- Track tested by Car Magazine South Africa

BMW M3 Frozen Edition -- Track tested by Car Magazine South Africa

COMMENTS

BMW M3 Frozen Edition. This car is just beyond cool. Just to remind everyone here, this is the South Africa only vehicle, of which 25 examples were produced (25th anniversary anyone?). The folks over at Car Magazine (South Africa), got their hands on a Frozen Black one, modified with a locally-installed AC Schnitzer exhaust system, modified air box and revised engine management to take the M3 up to 330 kW and 420 N.m.

Just to recap, the M3 Frozen Edition sport black or gray matte paint, with red gloss brake calipers, blacked out 19" wheels, black interior with bespoke red stitching. Each unit will have the M Dual Clutch Transmission as part of the standard specification and relies heavily on performance-enhancing parts from AC Schnitzer, among them the exhaust pipe, intake manifold and revised engine management system for exclusivity.

Now Car Magazine has gotten the car and given it its proper track testing, with the help of racing champion Deon Joubert who drifts the car all around Cape Town's Killarney circuit. Car magazine reached out to us and sent us this video previewing the full track tested review of the car, which by the way will be available in hard copy form at your local news stands next week, so make sure to go out and buy a copy!


Now, if your mouth dropped to the floor watching this video, it might be worth checking out famed racer Sabine Schmitz's reaction to the car, where she gushes over it.

You can also check out some old but still fresh professional photos of the M3 Frozen edition here.

"Exclusive" is apparently a very loose term BMW uses
