This customized BMW M5 certainly looks like it is going to war. No, it doesn’t bear any high-weapons or any bullet-proof armor, but it is wrapped in a unique green color associated with the military. Well if there is any war that the new BMW M5 is headed to, it is the war on the streets and highways where its looks and power would allow it to survive as one of the fittest.
BMW’s M5 performance sedan is a favorite among customers who like to tinker with their vehicles, thanks to the availability of quite a number of tuning programs for this vehicle. Several tuning companies are offering their own kits for the M5, allowing owners of this performance sedan to further customize it according to their taste and preferences. Among the companies offering tuning programs for the BMW M5 is Vorsteiner. And it certainly doesn’t fail in its quest.
Before the BMW M5 was wrapped with military-like foil, this performance sedan was fitted with the Vorsteiner VRS aero program that includes a front splitter (VRS Front Add-On Spoiler), a rear diffuser (VRS Aero Rear Diffuser) and a small trunk lid lip spoiler (VRS Aero Deck Lid Spoiler). All of these aero parts are made from autoclaved 2×2 pre-preg carbon fiber. Once all components have been fitted, this BMW M5 was then wrapped with matte Military Green foil, making it seemingly impregnable and ready to jump into action.
Completing the overall looks of this customized BMW M5 is a set of Vorsteiner V-FF 105 Flow Forged wheels in a Gunmetal Grey finish. These V-FF 105 Flow Forged wheels -- with sizes 20 inches x 8.5 inches at the front and 20 inches x 10.5 inches at the rear – feature a dimensional spoke design as well as a sloped flange design.
There weren’t any indications that there were revisions made to the engine of this BMW M5 to deliver more horsepower and more torque. But even at its base form, the V8 engine currently installed in the BMW M5 is already powerful.
In fact, this V8 engine is rated to deliver up to 412 kW (560 hp) of max output between 6,000 rpm and 7,000 rpm, as well as up to 680 Nm (502 lb-ft) of torque available between 1,500 rpm and 5,750 rpm. This engine is mated to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission, allowing the BMW M5 to sprint from zero to 100 km/hour (62 mph) in as quick as 4.4 seconds, and go as fast as 250 km/h (155 mph) which is an electronically limited top speed. Combine this power with the military look of this BMW M5 and you’ll get a car that is highly daunting.
