For what it’s worth, I have a confession to make. Melbourne Red is one of my favorite finishes for one of my favorite cars; the BMW F80 M3. The previous-generation four-door high-performance machine is still one of the most appealing daily drivers that can kick off both on and off the racetrack. It’s one of those vehicles that we all admired when we were kids, and the M3 still holds a special place in our hearts.

The BMW M3 is powered by a 3.0 Liter BMW TwinPower Turbo powerplant. Delivering 420 horsepower, it can push the vehicle from 0-100km/h (0-62mph) in 4.1 seconds and allow it to reach a top speed of 250km/h (155mph). The acceleration combined with the cornering performance makes the M3 a powerful track beast, but also a great daily driver with plenty of space for four passengers and a few suitcases. For the most part, it’s definitely a vehicle we’d all love to see in our garage.

This particular BMW F80 M3 comes with the aforementioned gorgeous Melbourne Red paint finish, one of the most appealing finishes we’ve seen on a car thus far. It accentuates the curvaceous lines of the M3 perfectly, while its somewhat understated shade of red doesn’t scream “look at me” as much. Overall, a perfect blend of attention-seeking and stylish looks, destined to make it a favorite among owners worldwide.

To make matters even more interesting, this particular BMW M3 is equipped with a set of HRE Classic 300 three-piece forged wheels. These are sized 20×8.5 in the front and 20×10.5 in the rear, filling those large wheel arches perfectly. The wheels come with a Satin Charcoal finish for the wheel centers and the Polished Clear finish for the wheel lips, a rather fetching combination further highlighted by the step lip configuration of these wheels.

In addition, the vehicle comes with a carbon fiber front lip spoiler, a set of carbon fiber mirror covers, side skirts, a rear diffuser, and finally, a rear decklid spoiler. To update its looks a bit, this M3 also features the BMW M4 GTS rear lights, a perfect addition to complete the exterior look of this vehicle. Finally, the owner tinted the windows, adding a perfect contrasting appeal to the exterior of this vehicle. Sheer perfection.
