these colors are deep-cut historical setbacks for M3 fans, and they are the main thing that sets this special edition M3 apart from its stablemates. Mechanically, the special edition is based on BMW 2023 M3 Competition xDrivewith the same 3.0-litre twin-turbo six in line generating 503 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque. One small wrinkle: Since the special edition is based on the M3 with all-wheel drive, that means it will only be available with the eight-speed automatic transmission. Damn!

The special edition package adds $8,550 on a standard model.

there is a numbered license plate inside the car. The M3 also comes with a suitcase to mark the occasion, according car and driverwhich is surely a sign that BMW is having too much fun at its birthday party.
The first sign was the silly names BMW gave these anniversary models, starting with the M 1000 RR 50 Years M motorcycle. And now this M3 Edition 50 Jahre BMW M — “Jahre” It’s German for “years,” by the way. Those long names seem even longer in contrast to the METER Division, where one letter was all BMW needed to get its point across. So this naming scheme feels a bit like a celebratory toast going on too long.
Really, BMW M is just having a good time, blurting out a German word here and there, and reminiscing about M3’s past. After all, you only turn 50 once.
