The 2011 BMW Frozen Black Edition M3 coupe is a blacked-out, even more sinister version of the imposing M3. Consider this if the Le Mans blue or others colors don’t suit your tastes. Only 20 are coming to North America, and that started in June. Good luck getting one. The base sticker is $80,525.
The “frozen” paint adds a matte finish to the black paint, which is meant to accentuate the lines and contours of this BMW muscle coupe. It’s a glorified paint job but look at it–and drive it–and you won’t debate the merits of the proposition. The Batmobile look is set off by glossy black gills on the sides, the kidney grille in front and on the exhaust pipes. There also are red brake calipers that catch the eye even in motion. The car also gets the competition pack, which lowers the ride height by 10 millimeters and adds M3GTS 19-inch wheels.
Power is the same as in the “standard M3,” with a 4.0-liter V8 pushing out 414 hp. It’s only offered with the dual-clutch transmission, which lowers the sprint to 60 mph two-tenths of a second to 4.5 seconds.
