On the inside the upholstery is finished in Extended Black Novillo leather with Palladium Silver accents, an Alcantara multi-function M steering wheel, carbon-fiber interior trim, with the M3 Checkered Flag and M Power logos featuring throughout. Powered by the 4.0-liter, 414hp M V8, the 2012 M3 Competition Edition is equipped with BMW's M Double Clutch Transmission, lowering its 0-60mph sprint time from 4.7 to 4.5 seconds. The Competition Package also includes a suspension that lowers the ride height by 10mm, modified programming for the M Dynamic Mode, and Dynamic Damper Control.

Offered for an MSRP of $81,060, one each of the 40 models has been allocated to the first 40 U.S. authorized BMW centers to become M Certified Centers.
