BMW M3 Royal Edition (2011) first official picture

Published: 01 April 2011

BMW has announced a special royal wedding commemorative package for the current E92 M3 coupe, available to order from today.

BMW M3 Royal Edition - the lowdown

The Royal Edition of the M3 is based on the standard coupe, and will be available in a choice of three princely colours: Regal Red, Bridal White and Imperial Blue. Inside, the M3 Royal Edition is trimmed in Windsor White Dakota leather and the car is adorned with a commemorative 'Will' emblem.

Joe Kerre, BMW junior operations Kindle executive at BMW's Forschungs und Narren division in Munich, spoke passionately about the latest M car: 'The Royal Wedding has captured the people's imagination so we thought that it would be a fitting tribute to offer an exclusive edition of one of our most majestic models. Given the Windsor's German heritage, the BMW M3 Royal Edition should make for the ideal wedding gift.'

Ben Pulman, custodian of our long-term test M3 was delighted by the news. Ben sees the Royal Edition as an excellent excuse to have another M3 test car on the fleet, and one that should be better-received by his girlfriend than the Competition Edition he is currently driving.

BMW can't be serious...

News of the M3 Royal Edition comes after the critically acclaimed success of the BMW Political Roundel Attachment Tag, that let owners show their partisanship during the general election, and the Canine Repellent Alloy Protection that stopped dogs from relieving themselves on customers' wheels.

Welcome to April.
