The matte black-on-black look isn’t just for gangsters, celebrities and tech site CTOs any more. If you’re in the market for a BMW, you can now get it right from the factory… although, for the price tag, you might still have to be one of the above.

On Monday, BMW announced its new ‘Frozen Black’ edition M3, a follow up to last year’s Frozen Grey. The murdered-out coupe wears a unique factory paint job that pairs a black metallic base coast with a frosty-looking matte clear coat, and naturally, black wheels.

Of course, a paint job and wheels do not make a special edition, so BMW will also loaded each Frozen Black M3 with its competition package, convenience package, and premium package, and everything from heated leather seats with custom red contrast stitching to gloss black exhaust tips and grilles.

It will be powered by the same 414-horsepower 4.0-liter V8 in the usual M3, mated to an M-DCTG dual-clutch transmission.

And the aforementioned price tag? $81,825. Would-be buyers had better follow BMW news closely, because the company will open up ordering on June 16 at 11:30 a.m. EST, and only sell a total of 20.

Tesla introduces ‘congestion fee’ for Supercharger stations
Tesla Supercharger

Tesla has been charging an idle fee for years in a bid to free up its Superchargers and prevent traffic jams at charging stations. But now it’s introducing a new congestion fee, which in some places will replace the idle fee.

To recap, idle fees kick in when a Supercharger station is at 50% capacity. It means that if a car is left plugged in after it is fully charged, the owner has to pay 50 cents a minute until they leave. If the station is 100% occupied, the fee doubles to $1 a minute.
