Extended Novillo Leather with unique red stitching is also specified, as are M3 GTS black wheels, red brake calipers and gloss-black exterior trim elements. With the Frozen Black Edition M3 Coupe, BMW is celebrating the availability of its Frozen paint colors under the custom BMW “Individual” program. MSRP for this limited edition will be $79,650 excluding $875 Destination & Handling and $1300 federal gas guzzler tax.

Only 19 of the 20 will be released initially. BMW enthusiasts can call 1-800-245-4269 no earlier than 11:30AM Eastern Time (8:30AM Pacific) on Thursday, June 16, 2011 to reserve one of these cars. The car will become available for delivery in late June 2011 through Authorized BMW Centers, with the production run completed by the end of July 2011. The twentieth car will be held by BMW of North America and may be sold at a later date.

Each 2011 Frozen Black Edition M3 Coupe will be powered by the award-winning 414hp, 4.0-liter M V8 engine, equipped with BMW’s M Double Clutch Transmission (M DCT). The included Competition Package reduces vehicle ride height by 10mm and includes M3 GTS 19” wheels (in black) with more width and offset for enhanced stability, standard Electronic Damping Control with enhanced programming, and higher-threshold programming for the M Dynamic Mode.

The special BMW Individual matte paintwork on the Frozen Black Edition adds a rare metallic luster to the vehicle. To achieve this luster in Frozen Black, a special BMW-developed silk matte clearcoat is applied over the Black Metallic base coat. BMW Individual’s Frozen paints meet or exceed all BMW standards for durability and longevity, and feature a full factory warranty. Special care guidelines are provided to customers and authorized BMW centers to prevent the finish from becoming glossy.

The next generation M3 arrived in the 1995 model year with a 3.0-liter (and later, 3.2-liter) 240-hp inline-6 powerplant. That car began the next chapter of M3 Racing history which lasted a decade on both sides of the Atlantic. In 1997, the first M3 Sedan joined the family and the M3 Convertible followed shortly thereafter.

The show must go on, as they say, and so that’s exactly what organizers of the much-loved annual Tokyo Auto Salon did, taking the 3-day event that usually happens in Chiba’s Makuhari Messe convention center and translating it (metaphorically, not literally; it was still largely in Japanese) into both streaming video and 3D.

Super Street: Anytime we talk about a vehicle prototype, the overwhelming response, once some of the initial smoke has cleared (and people are done cursing out the manufacturer and demanding that their design team be fired immediately), centers heavily on claims that the production car will look nothing like the demo car.

You know the name Joel Tan (@jt_built) from his wildly popular SR20DET-swapped, ‘40s-era Willy’s Jeep that mingles among the top of Super Street’s most popular feature cars of all time, and we expect his 1972 Nissan Skyline GT-R and Toyota Trueno of the same birth year will also have a lasting impression. Both cars feature

The “most powerful 3-cylinder in the world,” applied to Toyota’s much talked about GR Yaris still sounds a little strange when you hear it, but you can’t deny the nasty 250+hp and over 260 lb-ft. of torque that are delivered through an eager AWD system, all packed into a relatively lightweight (by modern hatchback standards)

As if to pour a little salt into the wound that the hottest hatch in ages, the AWD Toyota GR Yaris, is not being brought to North America, the interwebs has begun to conspire against us by teasing us with modified versions from some of the biggest tuners in the biz. In December, those sneak
