U.S. magazine Car and Driver get an up close and personal look at the 2013 BMW M3 Lime Rock Park Edition.
As a farewell to the E92 M3, BMW of North America announced back in July 2012 a limited edition of the popular M3. Dubbed BMW M3 Lime Rock Park Edition Coupe, the special M3 was limited to 200 units which sold out quickly despite the price tag of $70,100.
Lime Rock Park and BMW collaborated on the limited edition M3 Coupe. Each car was painted in rare Fire Orange and features Anthracite and Black cloth seating with Nappa leather trim. The popular Competition Package is fitted, and the M3’s signature carbon fiber composite roof panel will be retained on all copies produced. Also in the standard equipment profile will be a lightweight inconel-titanium exhaust muffler, carbon fiber front and rear aerodynamic aids, and an Anthracite Alcantara-covered, flat-bottom steering wheel.
The limited M3 also comes equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission.
