For the first time ever, a high-performance special-edition model of the M3 or M4 will be available in the United States. Unfortunately, with the fact that there are only going to be 300 available and that BMW USA will be offering them first through a prequalified customer selection process, the opportunity to get your hands on one is rare. Though if you like auctions for charity—and who doesn't?!—you might be able to obtain one at the Classic Wines Auction in Portland, OR on March 5.
Kuni BMW has offered up one of their allotments (and maybe their only one) for the charity auction that will benefit the Metropolitan Family Service, New Avenues for Youth, Friends of the Children-Portland, YWCA Clark County, Randall Children's Hospital at Legacy Emanuel, and Special Olympics of Oregon.
"What began as a simple wine exchange between friends in 1982 has grown into an annual series of premiere food and wine experiences unparalleled by any other charity fundraising program in the region. Consistently recognized as one of the top ten charity wine auctions in the country by Wine Spectator, the Classic Wines Auction has raised more than $36 million to benefit over 850,000 children and families served by 12 local charities over the past 31 years. By partnering with multiple, local charity partners each year, the Classic Wines Auction provides guests with the opportunity to maximize their charitable contributions while enjoying a top-rated gala experience unlike any other in the Pacific Northwest."
The BMW M4 GTS will only be available for their live auction, but proxy bidding is available. For more information, visit www.classicwinesauction.com. We are excited to see what this special car will bring at auction!—Nate Risch
