iND presents the BMW M5 (F10) “The Blue Deluge” in Yas Marina Blue

Article by Christian A., on May 20, 2014

The BMW M5 (F10) is already an amazing car thanks to its impressive 4.4-liter V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo that delivers 560 hp (412 KW) and 680 Nm of torque. The M5 uses a seven-speed M dual-clutch transmission that delivers the power to the rear wheels. As a result, the BMW M5 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.3 seconds, while top speed is electronically limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph.

If you want more, BMW offers the Competition Package, that raises the total output delivered by the twin-turbo V8 engine to 575 hp (423 kW). With the new Competition Package, the BMW M5 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.3 seconds, while top speed is limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph.

If you still consider that this is not enough, we invite you to take a look at “The Blue Deluge”, IND’s latest project based on the BMW M5 (F10). The M5 features BMW’s new Yas Marina Blue color found on the BMW M3 (F80) as well as with new accessories.

Some of them are the RKP front lip spoiler and rear air diffuser, AMS downpipes, AMS turbos and KW 3-way adjustable Clubsport springs.

The exterior design is completed by the new multi-spoke BBS wheels. Inside, we find the Yas Marina Circuit map on the passenger’s side of the dashboard. So, if you want more from an M5, you know where to look for!

The distinctive attributes of the new BMW M5 are well conveyed by the design of its body. By adding M-specific design elements, the BMW 5-Series Saloon has been transformed into the new M5 with more dynamic proportions and a more authoritative look. These design features were carefully picked to meet the technical demands of the new BMW M5, becoming the central element of the high-performance version of the 5-Series Saloon. Its impressive potential is communicated genuinely through a number of characteristic design elements on the front end, sides and rear end.

Meanwhile, the front apron of the new M5 is designed to represent the incredible power of the new V8 engine, which hides underneath a bonnet whose contour lines converge in a V to the signature double-kidney grille. The customary M black slats of this grille – as well as the trio of air intakes in the lower portion of the front apron -- are widely spread to underscore the cooling air requirement of the V8 engine. By arranging the air intakes over various levels, BMW M was able to impress depth to highlight the dynamic looks of the new M5.

The functional importance of the central air intake is highlighted by the M5’s width that spreads out towards the road surface as well as by contour lines’ protruding form. On the other hand, two side air intakes located on the outer edges of the M5 feature a curving form and help underscore the car’s wide track while filling the spaces typically reserved for foglamps.
