It’s not every day that BMW decides to build a one-off M3 Sedan but this is one of those days as they have prepared a unique variant of the high-performance compact sedan meant to celebrate the upcoming Oktoberfest set to open its doors tomorrow and will close on October 4. It’s known as the M3 Münchner Wirte as a connection to the iconic M1 Procar from 1981 which had the same exterior livery.

This particular M3 also comes with several depictions of landmarks in Munich, as well as a roast chestnut seller and the popular Wiesn-Schänke beer tent at the Oktoberfest. Moreover, it benefits from Bavarian-style façade painting combined with blue and white twisted cords. All of these have been added as a way to celebrate the M3’s connection with the city of Munich as well as with motorsport.

If you were wondering who is responsible for this special livery, you should know that it’s Walter Maurer who also created the exterior finish of the aforementioned M1 Procar. The car will be on display during the Oktoberfest days at BMW Welt in Munich, Germany, so everyone can go and check it out, but keep in mind that only one exists and it will not be commercially available.

There aren’t any mechanical changes, so the BMW M3 Munchner Wirte keeps the same six-cylinder, 3.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine pushing out 425 bhp and 550 Nm of torque teamed up to a paddle-shift seven-speed M dual-clutch gearbox sending power to the rear wheels.

The standard BMW M3 Sedan has been available in our country from Rs. 1.19 Crore since October last year as a CBU (Completely Built Unit). If you want the coupe, prepare to pay a little bit more as BMW India is asking Rs. 1.21 Crore (Ex. Showroom). In return for your hard-earned money you will be getting a very hot sedan/coupe that tops out at a limited 250 kmph.
