BMW celebrates 30 years of the M3 with the ‘30 Jahre M3’

The legendary BMW E30 M3 first rolled onto streets back in 1986 and since then, the line has gone a long way in living with the times and setting benchmarks for the automobile world. To celebrate the third decade celebrate the Pearl Jubilee of the legendary car, BMW has given the newest M3 some major uplifts; albeit cosmetic ones, but they take us back to the classic M3.

The new M3, which is simply called the 30 Jahre M3 or 30 Years M3 will come in Frozen Silver. The coat brings with it the matte-magic of the original M3 for tangible nostalgia. The company claims that this could be the last Frozen Silver M3 ever, which makes it even more endearing. Also adding to the looks of the car are a number of 30 Jahre labels that proclaim the success of the car and its exclusivity. With seats made of Merino leather and carbon trim presence across the body of the car, this variant is quite different from the regular M3.
