Anyone knows who owns this INSANE M3?

Parking outside my work today, can't locate the owner, so figured I'd give this a shot. Hands down the nicest M3 I've seen in person. The pictures don't do it justice.

Hmm..VAC Motorsports in Philly has the same exact car. I know this doesn't answer your Q.

It's a VF car that is usually at EAS, but I'm not sure who owns it. It's a bit much for my tastes however.

Nicest? That is certainly debatable. If it has 700hp, then I can almost see the point but I've never been a fan of widebody kits.

I also do not know the owner

Nicest I've seen *in person*.

While it's too much for my taste, I can certainly appreciate the quality of craftsmanship and the hard work that went into this piece of art.

Thanks for helping me determine who the owner is!

im sorry, but I lol at that theme every time i see. Im sure it might be an homage to someone or something with good intent, but from an outside perspective it looks completely ridiculous. Atleast the red 'TURBINE INTAKE- DANGER' is off the front bumper

lol. It definitely looks like they tried to go with the jet plane theme. I'm pretty sure the Lamborghini Aventador does it best, next to the Reventon of course.

ITs the owner of VF tunings car. It is a promotional car that he built that tours the country and also participates in various driving events and competitions. the car is a beast in person.

Pretty cool that you saw it in person. I've only seen pics / vids of that VFE project.
My previous M3 had a VFE supercharger on it and the workmanship and detail they apply to their products / projects are commendable.

here's a quick vid of it in action:VFE E92 M3

Wait, is that actually a flat deep green? Or is that just the picture quality, and really its a gray?

Any idea what the owners name is? Apparently he's at our office today.

Same car, it's currently at VAC for the moment. Here's a quick shot of the VFE widebody and our previous M3 at MFest V in Vegas:



The VFE car has been at numerous events and magazine covers, it's rare to have not seen this car one time or another.

Go to the VF Engineering website. You can see videos of it in action with the owner.

Last time I saw it was at the Steve Thomas / MFest meet.

I found humor in the fact that he rolled in with his little kid and there was a child seat and Minnie mouse doll in the back of that beast.

Seen this car in person, I, although I couldn't do it to my car as a DD, it looks phenomenal

Tom, is that you in the pic above?

the car is currently outside our building, so does this mean there are 2 identical ones?

VAC is in Pennsylvania and has the car with them.

Might be a bit confusing, as your stats say you're in California?

Not me, but a couple of great friends of ours (and awesome drivers) giving ridealongs while at MFest on LVSW.
