Yes, that was the Green Mamba car (WBSUR91080VU27352). One of only 4 to get individual treatment from the factory.

The listing includes the individual information on the car:

BMW Individual Dachhimmel anthrazit

BMW Individual Hochglanz Shadow Line

Green Mamba;Sonderlackierung Java green;M3 GTS Felgen matt schwarz, Chromteile Exterieur in Chrom dunkel-Niere-Kieme-Endrohrblenden; Handbremshebel bestickt(M Power) im Kundenauftrag Herr Krebs
Herr Krebs is Steffen Krebs. His family owns the dealership that has the car listed, so maybe that is just more of a promotional listing than a real selling effort. You can see that the back of the car has a "Steffen Edition" logo on it.

And the back story is that Steffen Krebs is the grandson of Paul Krebs, who apparently started a meaningful partnership with BMW just after WW1. So I guess that was the clout you needed to get an individual 1M built - just have a 90 year family relationship with BMW.
