Is it just us?
We’ve never seen a new BMW M3 in British Racing Green before, but now that we’ve seen this one photographed in Sweden we have to say that we absolutely love it. There’s just something about this color that makes the car look so classy. As the name suggests, this posh paint color has its origins in British racing history which began in the early 1900s. A century later Jaguar Racing revived the color in Formula One and since then other British manufacturers such as Bentley and Aston Martin followed suit by offering the trademark green on many of their cars.
Obviously BMW is not a British automaker, although it has previously offered a British Racing Green option for Mini due to the brand's heritage and country of birth. We’re not sure if the M3 featured in these pictures was painted by BMW or if it's an aftermarket job, but it’s certainly a refreshing alternative to the typical flashy paint colors that we often see on these cars.
