The BMW M3 is one fine performance vehicle and ever since its release, there have been numerous limited editions of the model. Some of these limited editions are market specific while some offer extra bits and parts. And not it seems that the model will get another variant.

BMW of North America today announced the 2013 M3 Coupe Lime Rock Park Edition, of which 200 copies will be built. The car is built in conjunction with Skip Barber, owner of the infamous New England circuit, this M3 features the best of BMW's performance catalogue (although there won’t be any additional power), making this coupe even more hardcore and better-poised than before.

The BMW M3 Coupe Lime Rock Park Edition will be constructed on the foundation of the iconic BMW M3 Coupe, now in its fourth generation, with enhancements selected through collaboration with Skip Barber and Lime Rock Park. Each car will be 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 fibre composite roof panel will be retained on all units produced. Also in the standard equipment profile will be a lightweight inconel-titanium exhaust muffler, carbon fibre front and rear aerodynamic aids, and an Anthracite Alcantara-covered, flat-bottom steering wheel.

Finally, each M3 Coupe Lime Rock Park Edition will be quickly identified by a numbered plaque located on the centre console, a unique decal on the left-rear quarter window, and a certificate of authenticity.

Lime Rock Park is one of America's most recognised road racing venues and has been continuously operated since its opening in 1957. Listed on the National Registry of Historic Places by the National Park Service, the track is 1.5 miles in length, encompassing seven corners and more than seven stories of elevation change.
