In acknowledgement of the upcoming Olympics to be held in London this summer and as one of the Olympics key sponsors, BMW have announced a special Olympic Edition of the BMW M3 Coupe which will apparently be available at BMW dealerships throughout the UK from today and for one month only.
The special edition motor is available in white only with the Olympic rings accross the bonnet & roof. instead of the BMW logo on the stearing wheel there will be a replica gold medal.
BMW wont be using the London 2012 logo as "It doesnt fit in with the ethos of our car", off the record he said it was a bit of a crap design that looked like it was designed by a blind person with learning difficulties.
they will be sold to UK customers only and they will be a limited edition of only 100
The car will sell for £54,690 (OTR) only availible in Petrol, the engine will be uprated from the standard 420 to a 438 bhp engine and the sports pack and 19" alloys come as standard. this new model has a electric boost switch meaning it will beat even the fastest 100 mtr runner off the blocks.
Each car will be personally delivered by a British Olympian and comes with a signed photo in the glove box.
BMW spokesman said "More than any other model in the range, the BMW 3 Series captures the essence of the BMW brand. Its unrivalled reputation is built on fluid and responsive handling together with impressive performance and we didn’t think it was appropriate to have a M5 special edition as that’s for fat executives"
he went on to confirm "This car is so quick its faster than Usain Bolt on steroids" though the 25 years old Jamaican runner denied the allegation.
car #1 of the limited edition will be donated to the winner of the Mens 100 mtrs. The winner of the Womens will get a BMW 116d M Sport, "because 'girls' cant drive very well!!!"
Anyone interested in the car was asked to contact BMW via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
