Porsche, Ford, Mercedes, Maserati (a lot more luxurious than M3), Jaguar, Ferrari, Audi, Lamborghini can sell their stripped out models but BMW, the company that brought the 3.0CSL in 70's, can't?
CHA CHING! so true!

And don't forget we now get the GTR from Nissan (not stripped out), and we also get models from Subaru and Mitsubishi (MR) ...

To answer your query,... the last example was the E36 M3 lightweight... which didnt even come here with the top motor.. so in truth.. the answer really is no.

I DARE BMW to bring some stripped out models here. especially ones under 3400 lbs.
