Just 150 BMW M4 Competition x Kith coupes will be available worldwide, and according to the company’s special reservation website Australia’s allocation has already been exhausted.

For the lucky few that managed to snag one, prices begin from $224,900 drive away. Local deliveries are expected to take place from the fourth quarter of 2021.

For this collaboration, BMW has taken the unusual step of adopting a fused badge featuring the blue and white roundel surrounded by a ring done featuring the M division’s colours and finished with commemorative text.

There’s also a blended M and Kith logo — featuring the M stripes and italicised Kith script — present on the boot lid, centre console, and on an illuminated badge below the front head restraints.

A carbon-fibre roof with the blended logo is an optional extra.

Standard features on this limited-run model include forged alloy wheels — 19-inch front and 20-inch rear — finished in gloss black, and M Compound brakes with red calipers.

Inside there’s black leather carbon seats with blue and red highlights, carbon-fibre trim, and Kith-branded leather for the front head restraints and centre console bin cover.

In honour of the original M3, the M4 Kith is only available with the E30’s three most popular colours: black, grey and white. All three paint options for the Kith limited edition, though, feature a matte finish.

The drivetrain is unchanged from the standard M4 Competition, meaning there’s a 3.0-litre twin-turbo straight-six under bonnet cranking out 375kW and 650Nm via an eight-speed automatic.

Buyers can choose between rear- or all-wheel drive. When fitted with all-wheel drive, the M4 Competition can complete the 0-100km/h run in 3.9s seconds and hit the double tonne in 12.5s.
