The colors were picked from M3s of all earlier generations to honor the brand's history. The 2023 BMW M3 Edition 50 Jahre will be available in Cinnabar Red (which is a tribute to the E30 M3), Techno Violet (a nod to the E36 M3), Deep Interlagos Blue (from the E46 M3), Fire Orange III (from the Lime Rock Park Edition of the E92 M3), and Limerock Grey (from the F80 M3 CS).
According to BMW, two of the colors, Techno Violet and Interlagos Blue, have been reintroduced particularly for this special edition.
