maybe the car is up for registration..or it is a test car..but with test cars you get trade plates so most probably a new registration...??

red plate = temp registration. so you can drive the car till you get your 9999, 7777, 007, etc numbers. most high end car buyers are typically interested in getting some special/VIP numbers.

It's red to go with the colour of their dials. Some BMW fetish. True story.
