BIMMERPOST member ///Megalomaniac got up close and very personal with an F80 M3 prototype this past weekend. He recounts his spotting with us all:

Today I spotted this F80 M3 on my way back home. Thought I should share it with you!

First thing what came in my mind was: “Yes, I’m the first who can show a picture of the redline!” But as I came closer and looked into the car, the whole speedo was blacked out and nothing was to see! I think it wasn’t a full Black Panel Display, because it looked like there wasn’t any speedo at all, only a Head-Up Display..

PSI presents the BLUE DETONATION:

The baking heat of a Florida summer can warp reality. One minute, life is plodding along at a snail’s pace, and the next, a ghostly spectre rises from the shimmering landscape, threatening to redefine all that you know. Suddenly, a streak of blue passes you by with blinding speed, accompanied by a gargantuan exhaust roar. You have just been strafed by magnificence.

Fellow Floridian Matt has what might possibly be the most glorious Le Mans Blue E92 M3 we’ve ever seen, to say nothing of his house or garage, which are equally breathtaking. Spec’d in the proper 6MT/ZCP configuration, this beautiful machine features black interior trim with carbon leather in mint condition. Outside, however, is where most of the changes were made.
