This is one of the most spectacular things I've ever seen.

This gives me inspiration.

I'm in love.

I am pretty sure I know which Nelson this is and if it is he comes from the aviation industry. His father was pretty remarkable as well. He is a well known exotic car collector.

Not sure how he gets into the M3 with 2 Veyrons in the stable. The M3 must feel like a cheap rattle box...but I guess all cars would compared to a Veyron.

Oh, and ORANGE REFLECTORS???? lol...j/k

I have to ask. What is Nelson's occupation?
Nelson and his family own and operate aviation companys here and abroad. He is an aviator of both fixed and rotary winged aircraft and of course a speed freak. He is a very fast and competent driver having attended countless Ferrari, Porsche and BMW track events. He is fast as well on the Ducatis. The pictures were taken at the Spruce Creek fly in housing development near Daytona as one poster revealed.

I am a close college buddy of his since 1975 and he has shared every one of his cars with me and my wife who is also a college buddy(except for the Veyrons which I would be afraid to drive anyway). He is the true car enthusiast/owner as he loves to thrash these beauties around the back roads. Oh and he has only two Veyrons right now, but he did own a different one before these.

That's not just any M3!! The folks at IND would be insulted for you to think so. I don't know how much $$$ Nelson has poured into this custom project, but I do know that car is going to kick some MAJOR ARSE at the track, which is what he really intended it for. I don't have to wait for Eurotuner's photo shoot of Blue Max because I've had my own private photo session already. Was just there Saturday driving some Porsches, Ferraris and Bentleys (We need to carry more than two people to and from the hangar) I don't want to rain on anyone's parade so I'll keep them for me and Nelson and close friends for now.

Hi Clark,
I was out at the hangar today (Picking up the GT3 for a few days) and spent some time checking out Blue Max. What a machine! Sorry I missed you guys on Saturday. I'm excited to get behind the wheel of the M.
