For a die-hard BMW enthusiast, only the top-notch parts apply. Consequently, the owner of this Silverstone Metallic BMW F10 M5 took his vehicle to European Auto Source for some aftermarket modding. In addition to visual aspects being upgraded here, the M5 also received a nice performance modification as well. To many, the changes done are everything the M5 actually needs, giving it a more pristine look and advanced performance level.

Of course, the build started off as a plain looking BMW M5 – if there ever was such a thing – meaning it’s powered by a 4.4 Liter BMW TwinTurbo engine, delivering 560 horsepower (412 kW) and maximum torque of 502 lb-ft (680 Newton meters). The current-generation M5 will make the acceleration run from 0-62 mph (0-100km/h) in a speedy 4.2 seconds and achieve a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). However, an unrestricted (limiter removed) BMW F10 M5 can hit a top speed of 186 mph (300 km/h). For an aftermarket build that is clearly a great starting point.
First, the owner decided to give the M5’s tamed exhaust sound a bit more power. Consequently, the horsepower and torque levels have also increased, all thanks to a custom aftermarket exhaust system. For this part of the build, a GTHaus Meisterschaft titanium exhaust system was added. This lightweight exhaust looks awesome with its blued tips and the quality welding, but it also comes with an amazing sound too. This allowed the M5 to go from tame to beast mode in one single tune here.
After this was done, it was time to add some visual improvements to the car. Namely, a carbon fiber Agency Power front lip and rear diffuser were added, thus accenting the Silverstone and providing meaner looks.
Additionally, the OEM BMW M5 wheels were painted in a bright Candy Blue color finish, working well with the Silverstone paint of the vehicle. A complete overview of this Silverstone Metallic BMW M5 build is available right below. While it may not be everyone’s choice, the aftermarket mods make the M5 a much more impressive looking vehicle.
