- Daytona Violet Metallic, inspired by the famous race and race track in Daytona, Florida.
- Dakar Yellow II, taken from the Dakar endurance rally that initially took place from Paris to Dakar.

Highlight trim finisher in matching exterior colour.
The highlight trim finisher in paintwork colours in the interior of the car is a throwback to the second generation of BMW M3s. This neat touch adds to the exclusivity of the cars and pays tribute to the design elements that were signatures of a motoring legend in years gone by.
BMW M3 Competition Package.
The special Competition Package from BMW Motorsport GmbH brings high performance dynamics and a sporty personality to the BMW M3 Heritage Collection Singapore Edition I. The Competition Package includes a tweaked Adaptive M Suspension, featuring new springs, dampers and anti-roll bars, as well as reconfigured driving modes (Comfort, Sport and Sport+). The standard Active M Differential on the rear axle and Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) have likewise been reconfigured to match the upgraded dynamics.
A 19hp power hike takes output to 450hp. This extra power allows the BMW M3 Heritage Collection Singapore Edition I, with 7-speed M Double Clutch transmission, to go from rest to 100km/h in just 4.0 seconds.
Rounding up the Package are exclusive forged 20-inch M alloy wheels, black chrome tailpipes and extended BMW individual high-gloss Shadow Line exterior trim, making the the BMW M3 Heritage Collection Singapore Edition I a sight to behold. Finished with special lightweight M sports seats in the cabin, which combine perfect support with exceptional comfort, the Competition Package allows drivers to take to the road with sheer confidence.
A sprint down memory lane.
Elegant and sophisticated, the second generation BMW M3 (E36) coupé emerged on the roads in February 1992. Although it exhibited an understated profile, the M3 was clearly a car made for auto aficionados.
Not only did the BMW M3 win accolades on the track but it also won many off it as well. Readers of sport auto voted the M3 “Car of the Year” twice in succession, while Auto Plus in France even gave the M3 the accolade of “Car of the Century”. Immediately after its market launch in the USA, trade journalists from Automobile magazine also awarded the car “Auto of the Year” – the first imported car to be granted this title.
