BMW North America has partnered with Skip Barber to produce one of the final special edition E92 M3 Coupes, the Lime Rock Park Edition. Each of the 200 to be built will come in Fire Orange paint with anthracite and black cloth seats timed in Nappa leather. The factory Competition Package comes standard for each vehicle. Retaining it’s carbon fiber composite roof the Lime Rock Park Edition adds front and rear carbon fiber aerodynamic aids along with an Anthracite Alcantara-covered–flat bottomed steering wheel. To add to the laundry list of unique BMW racing parts is a numbered plaque located on the center console with a matching unique decal on the left rear quarter window.

“A newcomer looks at the track map and thinks, ‘Oh, this is easy.’ It’s not. Lime Rock is an extremely difficult track to drive quickly. It has three of what many drivers think are some of the most challenging corners in North America.”
–Barber.

Eloquently explaining why this track earns its name on the special series M3– Barber reinforces the performance edge BMW has been able to maintain and exceed in the E92 chassis. By adding some professional driver input on a difficult track you can achieve a near perfect car for any track day adventure.

While the U.S. may not be seeing the coveted M3 GTS on her roads, the Lime Rock Park Edition seems to be as close as you can get to the model without going completely broke. Pricing starts at $70,995, including $895 destination and handling.

The show must go on, as they say, and so that’s exactly what organizers of the much-loved annual Tokyo Auto Salon did, taking the 3-day event that usually happens in Chiba’s Makuhari Messe convention center and translating it (metaphorically, not literally; it was still largely in Japanese) into both streaming video and 3D.

Super Street: Anytime we talk about a vehicle prototype, the overwhelming response, once some of the initial smoke has cleared (and people are done cursing out the manufacturer and demanding that their design team be fired immediately), centers heavily on claims that the production car will look nothing like the demo car. In some cases,

You know the name Joel Tan (@jt_built) from his wildly popular SR20DET-swapped, ‘40s-era Willy’s Jeep that mingles among the top of Super Street’s most popular feature cars of all time, and we expect his 1972 Nissan Skyline GT-R and Toyota Trueno of the same birth year will also have a lasting impression. Both cars feature

The “most powerful 3-cylinder in the world,” applied to Toyota’s much talked about GR Yaris still sounds a little strange when you hear it, but you can’t deny the nasty 250+hp and over 260 lb-ft. of torque that are delivered through an eager AWD system, all packed into a relatively lightweight (by modern hatchback standards)

As if to pour a little salt into the wound that the hottest hatch in ages, the AWD Toyota GR Yaris, is not being brought to North America, the interwebs has begun to conspire against us by teasing us with modified versions from some of the biggest tuners in the biz. In December, those sneak
