The temperature was in the mid-thirties, and it just stopped raining two hours ago. We're expecting snow tomorrow. Normal, intelligent people stay in and avoid these conditions, but we had the chance to wring the neck of BMW's Lime Rock Park Edition M3, and an F5 Sharknado couldn't have kept us from heading to for one last time in 2013.
BMW built a mere 200 iterations of this limited edition E92 chassis that is quite possibly the last-ever M3 coupe—the M4 takes the two-door banner next year. The Lime Rock Park Edition (LRPE) costs an extra $10,000 and includes the otherwise optional competition package, a titanium muffler, front and rear carbon fiber spoilers, Fire Orange paint, various interior treatments, and a Lime Rock Park sticker. The sticker, admittedly, was not a must-have. We do quite like the competition pack, though, with its half-inch lower squat and snappy 19-inch wheels.
