BMW's 10-millionth 3-Series to be used in a local driving school
The 10-millionth BMW 3-Series will not be resigned as a museum piece as the company recently delivered it to its new customer after being revealed by the automaker three weeks ago.
The new compact sedan is now under the ownership of Xaver Bittl who according to BMW, is one of their longtime clients. The new owner however, will not be using the car personally as it will be one of the many automobiles that will live out its days in a local driving school owned by Bittl.
The handover of the car was held in BMW Welt and was attended by BMW Group Plant Head Hermann Bohrer, Helmut Kas, Head of BMW Welt Munich and factory workers that assembled the 10-millionth 3-Series.
“The handover process is a unique experience for our customers. That was very evident today. The handover of the ten millionth BMW 3 Series Sedan is a special occasion for the company. We are delighted to have been able to provide the ideal setting for such an exclusive event,” said Kas.
In retrospect, the 10-millionth 3-Series is a 320d LCI Sportline that is a powered by a 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo diesel inline-four that pushes out 190 PS and 400 Nm of torque. In addition, the F30 3-Series is finished in Imperial Blue.
The milestone unit is a timely build as the BMW 3-Series celebrates its 40th anniversary this year.
