Could it have been the lime rock edition? Passport has one with black wheels.

so what's the difference between the standard and the Lime Rock edition? Autoblog says competition package and CF roof (which I thought the coupe was already available with).

don't forget the sticker of the track...and limited to 200 units. I think the differences are minor (interior, paint).

especially for the alleged asking price of $71k.

If it were "Hey, give us an extra $5 and we'll slap a sticker on the side for you" then yeah, I could see that.

I know some guys at a dealer that have one and the sticker is $71k, but they are expecting it to go for more than that...closer to $80k...

As far as weird/pointless models go, nothing beats the M3 Edition Edition (no, that's not a typo):

There are quite a few pointless editions of the current M3. Leave the damn car alone!
