IIRC there were about 40 Individual Fire Orange (not Lime-Rock editions) made for the US, making them even rarer than the actual Lime-Rock Editions.

So yeah, OP definitely will need some luck finding one.

135 and those were the GTSís which were specifically designed for track use; reduced weight in dash, removed rear seats and some other small items. They were also higher HP (444) and stroked block. The last one I saw come up for sale (2019) was $175K.

The lime rock edition was 200 productions and while not as special, had a bunch of features and weight reduction as well. I saw two go up for sale; one in 2015 with ~40K miles that went for $68K and one that just went up for auction last year with 8K miles on it and went for $230K.

Like I said; good luck.

What sort of weight reduction did a LRP car have?

There were only 5 Fire Orange E90's imported to North America, the few that have been posted here on the forum were DCT cars. And obviously no carbon roof as it wasn't available on the E90.

The only single hump, Fire Orange E92 car I've seen was a LRP in EAG's collection, and I think they eventually posted it for sale. There certainly could be others, but they all seem to have navigation.

This one was for sale in early 2021.... Fire Orange, but not LRP as far as I could tell.... it wasn't a single hump though.

i've "seen" two fire orange e9x's for sale in the last 5 years.

The first was an e90, zcp, low miles, slicktop. this was a private party sale circa 2018. that is all I can recall.

The second was an e92 that sold on BaT last summer. Very odd spec..... DCT, single hump.

I know of 3, including the one from EAG (which was extra-special with premium sound accidentally spec'd). The other 2 are the one that sold for $250k, and the one that was for sale from Turner's collection.

This car is almost a DCT ZCP stripper, the only non-stripper option I can tell is it wasn't spec'd with manual seats.https://www.thestudiocars.com/vehicl...m3-competition

As far as I can gather on the E90's, 3 of them are slicktops, one of those being 6MT. The other 2 are DCT, and there's a 4th I think DCT with a sunroof. I haven't been able to find the 5th.

Whatís the asking price? At 1 of 5 E90s Iím sure it canít be cheap. If itís the one you want maybe you make it work. Take some components back to stock and sell some parts?

I donít want to put the number he told me out there as he may change it and it could effect his business. More than I personally could spend on it, but I do want it!

Hahaha. Good one dipshit.

Paying a premium for a car because of rarity is one thing, overpaying for a rare car is another.
