Fire Orange is one of the hottest BMW colors on the market now.

This generation BMW M3 is powered by a naturally aspirated V8 and it’s the only M3 that revs to an insane 8,300 rpm. Its S65 V8 was named International Engine Of The Year from 2008-2012 in the 3.0 – 4.0 liter category. Performance wise, the E92 M3 is a monster on track and on the road, some magazine tests show 0 to 60 times of 3.9 seconds for the DCT-equipped models.
When you purchased the Lime Rock Park Edition, there was the option of either a 6-speed Manual or a 7-speed DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission). Included in the Lime Rock Park (LRP) Edition are Carbon Fiber Front Splitters, Carbon Fiber Trunk Spoiler, BMW M Performance Alcantara Steering Wheel with a Blue Index Stripe, optional 19” Jet Black Wheels, special decal on the driver’s side window, plaque on the center console, and BMW Performance Exhaust. For the driver and owner of this M3, it was just a matter of personal taste and ideas that led him to additional modifications.
This BMW E92 M3 Lime Rock Park Edition features a much deeper and louder tone, thanks to its new exhaust system. Made by Akrapovic, the custom exhaust system provides a lighter system compared to stock, a better throttle response and above all it offers a much better sound note coming out of the quad exhaust pipes in the rear as well.
