The photos are courtesy of a guy from Sweden who claims to have ordered a 540i x G30 and is expecting its arrival next summer. Notably, the pictures were taken without sunlight so there may be some variation. Nevertheless, this customer is excited to share these photos with fellow BMW enthusiasts to see what they have to say about this uncommon colour.
The usual silver that we’re accustomed to seeing on cars doesn’t display any hints of chrome or lilac unlike the Rhodonite Silver Metallic on the 5-series models. Interestingly, BMW Individual Program has other interesting exterior color options including Azurite Black that drops a tinge of blue into it and Champagne Quartz with traces of metallic purple, gold and beige all rolled into one. Of course, there’s the Almandine Brown Metallic that looks so dark you’d think it’s another shade of black. But since both the xDrive Touring G31 540d and the G30 530e plugin hybrid are donning BMW M Sport packages, the Individual colour must have been particularly chosen as an upgrade which we estimate will cost you about £1,740.
Speaking of which, BMW is offering a wide variety of color options once the new M5 comes out in Spring. The US-spec F90 BMW M5 can be had in Bluestone (Metallic), Donnington Gray (Metallic), Marina Bay Blue (Metallic), Snapper Rocks Blue (Metallic), Singapore Gray (Metallic), Black Sapphire and Alpine White.
BMW Individual Program likewise has other color options aside from those mentioned earlier. This includes (Frozen) Dark Silver, Pure Metal Silver and (Frozen) Marina Bay Blue. Any of these will provide the M5 an extraordinary look whether in silver tones or the darker shades. But then again, the Rhodonite Silver on the new G30 looks stunning as the light paint enhances the sleek new lines of the saloon.
That aside, BMW’s latest version of its M5 Series will feature the new head up display that can show performance data within eye level. There is also the new steering wheel with two small buttons and infotainment screen with gesture control. The F90 M5 is BMW’s fastest M car to date. It can take you from zero to 60mph in only 3.2 seconds and on a top speed of 124mph in just 11.1 seconds --- definitely the most exciting BMW to watch out for in 2018 regardless of paint color.
