I NEED YOUR HELP! Trying to Figure out WTF Kind of BMW Passed me Today!?!?!

Ok I have seen pretty much every car on the planet...from the oddest Peel P50 to the a CCX in person...

But today I got passed by a BMW I've NEVER EVER seen before...and it blew by me doing probably 120+ I attempted without breaking the law to tail it close enough to try to figure out what in the fing hell it was...

So here's the best way I can describe it...

It looked KIND OF like a 6 series coupe...but with a much wider body, the hood had raised vents on either side...and the back tail pipes were dual but in the middle of the car not on each side...

It looked like a supercar from BMW but I can't find any record of it as a BMW produced 100K+ car.

It was pure black...long...very long much longer than an 1M or M3.

God I wish I could figure this out on my own but I am coming here to see if anyone here has any knowledge of this car:

It passed me on 75 here in Atlanta GA. Again it looked fast...very not BMW ish but was absolutely a BMW.

Any guesses...once I see a Picture of it I'll tell you 120% if its right...

No it wasn't hideous LOL.

It looked like I said very much like a 6 series but again in a lot of ways it was REALLY different.

Ok I think I narrowed it down it LOOKS a LOT like the BMW M3 E92

problem is it ABSOLUTELY did not have quad pipes...it was a dual mid pipe....and thats really throwing me off ...tho I am now not sure if that was just a modification that person had done...

Relevant to what it looked VERY similar too:

Could of been a heavily modified one?

Last night I saw a weird Honda and couldn't make it out.

Turns out it was a s2000 with a UGLY wide body kit, his stock wheels were hidden amongst the hideous panels.

Was it an older modded car? Maybe it could have been a prototype on a test-run?

THATS IT!

I KNEW SOMEONE WOULD COME THROUGH!


I've never seen or even heard of that **** before!

See it doesn't at all look like a normal BMW...it looks really fing weird and like supercarish with all its weird curves and sh*t. And that exhaust...again it just looked different.

How did an Oversea's middle east BMW Modification end up on the streets of Atlanta I wonder O_o...did V-BT start mass producing these things?
