BMW has announced a new special edition for the outgoing M3, called the Lime Rock Park edition.

The name comes from the historic Lime Rock Park racing circuit located in northwestern Connecticut, which is owned by Skip Barber. BMW joined forces with Lime Rock because the two have a long history together.

For standard equipment, the M3 Lime Rock gets fire orange paint, 19″ wheels, titanium exhaust, carbon fiber chin splitter and rear deck spoiler, 6-speed manual transmission, carbon fiber roof panel and leather trimmed interior. The engine will stay true to the standard 2013 M3 as a 4.0-liter V8 that makes 414 hp.

200 units are slated for production with a starting price of $70,100 before delivery. Dealers worldwide will be limited to only one of these special editions each, making it a rare sight.
