If you're a fan of the BMW M3, and that would probably include most performance car enthusiasts, Munich has a new treat to tempt you from your automotive dollars. The company introduces the M3 Lime Rock Park Edition. The Lime Rock Park Edition follows the several other limited-edition M3 trims announced earlier this year, including the Frozen Silver Edition, Frozen Black Edition, and the China-only M3 Carbon Edition.
The special-edition M3 represents the long-standing relationship between BMW and the historic Lime Rock Park track in Connecticut, owned and managed by Skip Barber, widely-known for his driving school which for decades featured BMW cars. So what does the princely sum get you? The limited-edition trim includes the Competition Package, the carbon fiber composite roof panel, a lightweight Inconel-titanium exhaust system, carbon fiber front and rear aerodynamic aids, and an Alcantara-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel. Each BMW M3 Lime Rock Park Edition will be designated by a numbered plaque on the center console, a decal on the left-rear quarter window, and a certificate of authenticity. Only 200 of the Lime Rock Park Edition models will be made.
The M3 Lime Rock Park Edition will be available for delivery starting in September. The $70,995 price tag includes a $895 destination charge.
