It was too costly to homologate the engine for the M3 GTS.
IMHO the Lime Rock edition should have been the M3 GTS with the regular S65 engine.

"The fourth-generation (E39) 5-series and the V-8 powered M5 set a standard that may never be equaled, with handsome appointments and spot-on driving dynamics.
This generation earned Automobile Magazine All-Star awards every year from 1998 to 2003" - Automobile Magazine Feb 2012
