California-based tuner AE Performance refreshes the look of their F10 BMW M5 with a new paint job. The once upon a time 1M-exclusive Valencia Orange color is now being used on the F10 M5 to give the car an unique look among the usual blues, silvers or blacks.
Other upgrades include blacked out kidney grilles, side gills and ADV Track Spec SL Series Wheels with titanium centers and brushed gunmetal lips.
The standard color palette for the new M5 includes a wide range of exterior colors and interior trims: Alpine White, Black Sapphire Metallic paint, Mojave, Silverstone, Space Gray, Imperial Blue, Singapore Grey and Monte Carlo Blue. The latter color is already known from BMW X5 M and recently seen on M5 wallpapers.
From the Individual Catalog, BMW offers the following: Amazonite Silver, Champagne Quartz, Moonstone, Azurite Black and Citrin Black.
Under the hood, a 4.4-liter (4395cc) turbocharged unit with BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology and twin-scroll turbochargers produces 560 horsepower from 5,750-7,000 rpm and 680Nm (502 lb-ft) of torque from only 1500rpm. The high-rev unit should rocket the M5 to 62 mph in 4.4 seconds and under 4 seconds using BMW’s new Launch Control.
The 2013 BMW M5 has a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Prices of $90,695 (including destination and handling).
