BMW has announced a new special edition M3, which will be available only in China.

2011 BMW M3 Carbon Edition will be limited to just 111 units, which will be sold at the biggest car market. The sports car features carbon fiber roof, BMW performance front GT splitters, hood inlets and a trunk mounted lip spoiler. Of course, all elements come in carbon fiber.

The special edition M3 is finished in white pearl metallic paint with black stripes. A Carbon Edition logo and huge 19" Style 220 M3 wheels in matt black fitted with high performance tires complete the exterior look.

The interior received carbon fiber element, too. The "Carbon Edition" logo is present as well as white leather for the arm rest, door panels and center console. The final touch is the carbon fiber patterned material for the headrests.

The engine didn't get any power boost, because it already has a lot of it – a 4.0 liter naturally aspirated hi revving V8 with 420PS and 400Nm of torque. It is mated to a Drivelogic 7-speed dual clutch gearbox. 0 to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds and a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph) – electronically limited.

2011 BMW M3 Carbon Edition is priced at 1.23 million yuan, which is around $189 000.
