How can something get hotter when it’s frozen? Easy: when it’s a “frozen” BMW M3. Like the 30 Frozen Gray Edition M3s that BMW offered last year, the Frozen Black Edition is a limited-run two-door, although just 20 will be served up this time around. Every Black will be equipped with the Competition package, BMW’s M-DCT dual-clutch transmission, and a black leather interior with red stitching. The paint is a matte-finish metallic black, accented by red brake calipers and gloss black wheels and body trim (grille inserts, window moldings, exhaust tips).
The Frozen Black Edition comes loaded with pretty much everything else on the M3 options list, including the Premium Package 2 (power-folding auto-dimming mirrors, universal garage-door opener, power front seats, carbon leather interior trim, interior mirror with compass, BMW Assist with Bluetooth), the Convenience package (alarm system, keyless entry, rear park-distance control, voice-activated navigation, iPod and USB inputs), heated front seats, satellite radio, and the BMW Individual Enhanced premium sound system. The package, BMW says, is intended to celebrate the arrival of a whole line of “Frozen” paint colors to the BMW Individual customization program.
Want one? Get on the horn to 1-800-245-4269 at exactly 11:30 a.m. Eastern on Thursday, June 16, and be prepared to shell out $81,825. If you’re one of the lucky 19 to get through—one example is being held back for possible sale at a later date; hello, auction!—by the end of the summer, you may have one of the coolest E90 M3s ever built.
