Legendary high-performance road cars have long been born out of the need to satisfy racing regulations, and the BMW M3 is no exception. Based on the E30 series, BMW originally produced the M3 to compete within Group A and DTM racing series. With each following generation, the M3 has brought increased power and performance but has kept its ethos the same, delivering a well-balanced performance car that can be used on a daily basis.

When the E90/E92 series was introduced for the 2008 model year, BMW decided to shoehorn a naturally aspirated, all-aluminum 4.0-liter V-8 into the chassis, touting 414 hp and an 8,000 rpm redline. Its powertrain, combined with the option to select a manual transmission, cemented the E90/E92 series as an icon for automotive enthusiasts. For the final model year, BMW offered an eye-catching limited edition, dubbed the Lime Rock Park Edition, which featured Fire Orange paint and the Competition Package.

This example, offered from a notable collection of world-class performance cars, had traveled just 229 miles at the time of cataloguing. Despite its minimal mileage, it has been expertly maintained, and is accompanied by service records, its original window sticker, and accessories. With increasing fuel economy and emissions regulations, the era of naturally aspirated “M” cars has since passed. This Lime Rock Park Edition offers the chance to add an incredible example of the ultimate naturally aspirated M3 to your collection.
