Vorsteiner upgrades the Bmw X5M

Article by Christian A., on December 6, 2011

Vorsteiner unveiled today its latest tuning kit developed for the Bmw X5M. As you may remember, the tuning company also tuned the Bmw X6M and left some of us speechless. We have to admit that the new X5M had the same effect on us as the X6M. As you can see from the photos, the new tuning kit consists of a new front hood, an add-on front spoiler as well as an add-on rear air diffuser with integrated exhaust system.

The carbon fiber combined with the white color gives a new look to the car and because we are talking about Vorsteiner, expect high quality parts. According to the manufacturer, the aerodynamic components are made using Vorsteiner’s latest autoclaved pre-preg carbon fiber, and this process adds strength and durability over traditional carbon fiber components.

Regarding the engine, Vorsteiner didn’t give us any details, but we are sure that this can also be improved. For those who don’t know, the X5M comes as standard with a 4.4-liter V8 engine delivering 555 hp @ 6,000 rpm and 500 lb-ft of torque (680 Nm) from 1500 to 5,650 rpm. With these numbers, it can sprint from naught to 60 in just 4.5 seconds and has a top speed of 155 mph.

The awesome potential of both the BMW X5 M Sports Activity Vehicle and the BMW X6 M Sports Activity Coupe is immediately hinted at by their design and appearance. These two share the same outstanding performance DNA and that is immediately seen by the similar design of its front, dominated by the big air intakes.

The compartment lid, the headlights, and the front air dam take its cue from the BMW X6. The two cars, however, differ in proportion: the X5 M is variable while the X6 M is dynamic.

Both of these cars have one-of-a-kind gill intakes on the side. The side intakes, as well as the 20-inch rims that are made out of light alloys, are designed separately.

Looking at the back, you would see the distinct elements that are to be expected from a BMW M vehicle. While each has its own interpretations of these distinct elements, it nevertheless shows just how dynamic each one is. The BMW X6 M has a rear air dam that hints at power while both cars have the twin tailpipe for the exhaust system reminiscent of the BMW M’s design language.

When you compare the new X5 M and the X6 M to the X5 and the X6, you would find lesser use of plastic elements in the body’s lower section, highlighting the cars’ road-worthiness more by putting more focus on functional design elements that help the aerodynamics and facilitate the flow of cooling air.

Both X5 M and X6 M use all wheel drive systems and they do share many of the same design elements. But each one is unique and outstanding. The X5 M has superior performance and exclusivity, while the X6 M has unique designs that hint at wonderful driving dynamics and add to the car’s sporty appeal.
