This Melbourne Red BMW X5 M has been going through a series of changes in the last few months. The vehicle is often over at places like IND Distribution, Wheels Boutique and HRE Wheels, where each and every time, it receives some impressive aftermarket upgrades. This lumbering SAV (Sports Activity Vehicle) features one of the most impressive exterior finishes offered by the Bavarian car maker and any aftermarket touches it receives, simply add to its overall appeal.
The BMW X5 M is powered by a 4.4 liter V8 TwinPower Turbo engine delivering 575 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque, which allows rumbling SUVs to achieve performance levels which, up until recently, were reserved only for high-performance coupes and sedans. The power levels attained by this SAV allow the all-wheel drive monster to accelerate from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in 4.0 seconds. Top speed is an electronically limited blazing fast 155mph (250km/h).
The X5 M seen here comes with a bevy of subtle, aftermarket touches that make all the difference for this vehicle. Namely, it received the complete iND cosmetic package for the BMW X5 M, giving the vehicle clean exterior looks. Additionally, the SUV features a complete Akrapovic exhaust system and the accompanying rear diffuser, giving the rear end of the X5 M a sportier stance.
Finally, the vehicle was at Wheels Boutique, where it received a set of Brembo brakes and AC Schnitzer lowering springs. But, the biggest contributor to the accentuated looks are the HRE P201 wheels. These are custom made, aftermarket wheels that are specially designed and engineered for a heavy and performance oriented vehicle, like this. The wheels are installed in sizes of 22×10 and 22×12.5 in the front and rear, respectively. With the wheels finished in Frozen White, the vehicle will be an attention grabber anywhere it goes.
