BMW Brings 1-Of-1 M3 To SEMA 2017 #TENSEMA17

If there's a way to celebrate 30 years of the M3 in the US, you can't go wrong with some custom red, white, and blue

It's hard to imagine a time when the US didn't have an M3 for sale, but it was only 30 years ago we got our first ever performance 3 Series with the E30 chassis and its amazing S14 engine. Now at the 2017 SEMA Show, BMW debuted the only version that will celebrate that triple decade with a true, one-of-one 2018 M3 with some very interesting trim in the interior. This car was designed by the BMW Group Designworks and built by the BMW Individual program, the same program that allows owners to customize their cars to their liking.

If you want to celebrate something American, then you have to incorporate red, white, and blue somehow, and the way that BMW chose to do this was with the interior. The front and rear seats are Merino leather in those all-American colors, with the fronts being the BMW Competition Package seats with a "30 Years American" logo with "a graphic juxtaposed '30th' over the American flag symbolizing the 30 years Americans have been expressing their passion for the BMW M3 in the US." This is also flanked by bits of carbon fiber and M Performance armrest, door handles, and shift knob all in red, white, and blue leather.

It's not just interior parts and a special Frozen Red II Metallic paint job. There's actual performance, too, with M Performance Parts like M Performance tuned dampers with adjustable perches and coil springs, M Performance Carbon Wing, M Performance wheels in gold and milled accents with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires, and M Performance exhaust with titanium muffler.

Want to get one? Well, you'll need a decent chunk of change and a bit of luck on your side. One and only one customer will be able to purchase this true one-of-a-kind M3 for an MSRP of $130,110 plus $995 for delivery right as soon as the 2017 SEMA Show is over on Friday. Good luck to whoever can afford this striking and all-American BMW M3.
