BMW has launched a new special edition M3 specifically for the Chinese market.

The BMW M3 Matte Edition follows on from the M3 Tiger Edition that was launched in 2010 to celebrate China's year of the tiger.

The new Chinese M3 special gets a choice of two new exterior finishes, gunmetal grey or black, both of which are created by combining a metallic finish with a silky clear matte coat. Other exterior touches include lightweight 19-inch alloys, red brake callipers and black air intakes and exhaust tips.

On the inside, the dashboard is finished with carbonfibre and the black leather seats are stitched in red, as are the door armrests.

Power for the Matte edition remains unchanged, using the standard M3’s 4.0-litre V8 engine with 414bhp.Read Autocar's road test of the BMW M3
