BMW M3 CRT – Click above for high-res image gallery

Thinking about dropping your kid's college fund on the new BMW M3 CRT? With about 100 pounds of excess weight stripped out, four doors and the a bored-out 4.4-liter, 450-horsepower V8 under the hood, it's bound to be an instant collector's edition. But don't head down to your local dealership with bearer bonds in hand just yet, as reports indicate that all 67 examples sold out almost as soon as they went on sale.

No problem, you figure. You'll just place your order for the slick Frozen Black edition instead. Well, not so fast, bub. Apparently that one sold out just as fast, with the entire run of 20 cars gone in a scant 34 minutes. Don't worry, though, because with sales moving this fast, you can bet BMW will offer another special or two before the car is phased out later this year. Just be on the ready – cash in hand – when it does.

      Is this 4.4L V-8 really a bored-out S65B40? Or is it a jumped-up and N/A version of the 4.4L V-8 commonly seen with a twin-turbo setup throughout the BMW lineup?

      BMW puts it out, and the sheep will follow.

      isnt this a $190,000 3 series? bmw fans never disappoint at having no idea the true value of a car. The only people who will appreciate it are people who have boners over everything bmw craps out (even x6s, x3, the new 1 series... oh they all make me laugh). Why would you want these peoples admiration? Everyone else who has a grip will just mock you for spending so much on a car that offers so little. Sadly the owners of $60,000 3 series (an m3 coupe) should also feel this thought in the back of their head when a boss 302 trounces them around a track...
