What is this M3's paint job called

Ok so I'm in the market for an M3 and I saw this one on craigslist and she is gorgeous but the post expired and all I have is this picture. I know the color is called estoril blue but what is the stripe? Is this some kind of special edition? I've looked all over google and haven't been able to find another one like it.

I believe the factory option name is "ehrfürchtig Renn-Streifen Blau". I could be a bit off though because i dont speak german.

Oh man, that's hilarious. Don't worry BeamerN00b, we won't hold it against ya. But you might want to get a different screen name, since beamer = BMW motorcycle, and bimmer = BMW car. That is, unless you're actually a BMW motorcycle fan.

The stripe up front is in no way special. It is a very poor imitation of the LTW flag that the original LTW e36's came with. No offense to your tastes, but it also looks like a bag of ass.

This is what it should look like:
