Fun race & speed record

I was driving down I-64 today with a sparse number of cars on it when what I think was BMW 8 series vehicle passed me going about 95 MPH. I caught up to him and we started to race, whizzing past a car every so often. He was ahead of me when a patch of traffic appeared but we were soon past it again and this time I was able to stay in front of him until the next traffic patch. We both gave each other thumbs up and went our seperate ways. It was fun! It looked like it was modded (at least on the outside) rims were black and it was debadged. Top speed for me was 125 MPH.

Yeah, I think. Either that or an older M3 model.

Man I used to like the old 8-series. Even came really close to buying a 1997 Black 850 v12 but never went through with it.

In the us I don't see many of them at all except for one time up in South Carolina they were having a caravan and I saw about 12 of them in a row.
