Need Help Identifying a Car

First off I m not sure if I posted it at the right place but I think this was the best choice.

Okay.
So I was going through pictures of my friend s visit to Bimmerfest this year and I ran into a picture of e92 M3 and thought it looked pretty mean but he only had one picture of it.

So my question is do you who s car this is or do you have more pictures of it?

Thanks,
Mike

Yeah I had checked the website there wasn't any pics of it. I found the color to be different and that's what really got my attention. Is it just me or is it a Matte Color?

And. Thanks pmgreer for the pictures how did you find them>?

The first picture makes it look more of a stock paint job, well if you make the assumption that the lighting is messing with the picture somewhat. Yet, the image from the front view looks more like a custom paint job. From my low understanding of paint jobs (mainly from watching motorcycle/car shows on the discovery channel) looks as if it doesn't have as many clear coats to really give it that glimmer.

I am an infinitely inquisitive person. If it's out there and it ain't classified, I'm going to find it. I keyed on the word "Bimmerfest" and drilled down. Took all of five minutes...

I would guess that the idea is to make the car look stealthy. It reminds me of the skin of a modern fighter jet.

I just realized the color is almost the same or if not the same color as the Lamborghini Reventon which is totally amazing looking car IMO.



Did a little search found this:"The paint is unique to Reventon and called Grey Barra or Grigio Reventon both names are right. The bad news you canít get the paint code you can only have the paint ordered if you own one."

More than 3 people replied that this car is an M3
The OP knew that from that start... He was just asking if anyone knew whos car it was and if they had more pics... I dont get how everyone missed that part...

Anyway, OP- Look at what pmgreer posted... A few more pics for you.. As for whos car is it, that will be a little difficult to come across... (maybe posting in the M3 section )

Go near the bottom of the forum to the Bimmerfest 2009 section. That pic looks like it was from that event. You should find pics of the event and it should be there.
