German brand adds a limited run variant to its smallest performance model.
BMW has thrown some M Performance parts at its baby performance hatch.
The German car maker is offering an Australian-only M140i Performance Edition, which is limited to just 15 manual and 45 auto examples.
Priced from $71,900 plus on-road costs - which represents a price hike of $7000 over
the regular model - the M140i Performance Edition arrives in the second quarter of this year.
BMW has added some exterior touches to make the limited edition standout, including grey 19-inch M Performance light alloy wheels, carbon fibre exterior mirrors, gloss black grille and black rear fins as well as a roof-mounted spoiler. An M Performance exhaust system is highlighted by chrome tailpipes.
On the inside, BMW has used Alcantara and carbon fibre extensively throughout the cabin adding an Alcantara M Performance steering wheel with a carbon fibre trim and red leather stitched central marker. It also comes with a carbon fibre central console and an Alcantara trimmed dash and the cloth sports seats with Alcantara trim.
Adding to its sporty flavour the model gets aluminum pedal covers while manual variants gain a carbon fibre gear shift knob.
A mechanical limited slip differential has also been added to manual versions.
Each vehicle comes with a numbered plaque and an M Performance logo.
It remains powered by the turbocharged 3.0-litre inline six-cylinder engine that produces 250kW and 500Nm, which is mated to either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic with power delivered to the rear wheels.
$71K +ORC not $64K. Make sure that the information in the article matches the information contained in the summary.
Funny, BMW rarely supplies weights, probably meaning they are too heavy.
Too bad they couldn't release the style edition, ugly as sin and the price is hilarious. And yes godoggo good observation about the volvo analogy, but same or even more so applies to Merc drivers.
@ godoggo, probs just you if you know the M140i's capabilities. No Volvos can hold a candle to this baby.
