June 16th 2011 at 11:30 am EST, you can place your order for the limited edition 2011 BMW M3 Frozen Black Edition car. Now, how limited are we talking? Only 20 will be produced, but 19 slots that will be filled Thursday to those who have $80,000 for this car. The other one will be sent to BMW North America, where they will use it to show off at car shows and they might sell it at a later date.


What's so special about this car? Well, I'm glad you asked. BMW took a M3 and improved it by doing the following:

BMW Individual Frozen Black Exterior Paint (fancy version of matte black paint)
Black Extended Novillo leather with Red Contrast Stitching on seats, headrests, door inserts, armrests, middle console, and door pulls.
Black M3 GTS wheels, 19" diameter with high-performance summer tires
Red brake calipers
Gloss black kidney grills
Gloss black side-gill elements
Gloss black exhaust pipe tips

Additional specified equipment from M3 catalog:

Power folding auto-dimming mirrors
Universal garage-door opener

Performance wise: the Frozen Black M3 is powered by the award-winning 4.0-liter, 414-horsepower M V8 engine, equipped with BMW's M Double Clutch Transmission (M DCT) which lowers the 0-60mph acceleration time of the M3 from 4.7 to 4.5 seconds.

If you're seriously interested, dial 1-800-245-4269 Thursday, June 16th 2011 A.D. at 11:30 am eastern standard time.

I'm sure that BMW will show off this car at the next Beemerfest, SEMA, LA Auto Show, North American International Auto Show, and the New York International Auto Show.
