The vehicle we have beforehand is a stunning and impressive example of what can be created when unorthodox finish choices are paired up with a high-performer vehicle like the BMW X5 M. By choosing Melbourne Red, the owner clearly wanted to make a statement. Now, with the addition of a set of aftermarket wheels, the vehicle will further stand out.
The automotive aficionados are mostly in agreement when the BMW X5 M is concerned. It’s 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 found in this vehicle allows 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).
In turn, this makes the BMW X5 M a great foundation for an aftermarket build. This particular Melbourne Red BMW X5 M received a few subtle, yet impacting, aftermarket touches. Namely, the owner decided to add a set of custom forged concave aftermarket wheels.
These HRE P200 wheels are installed in sizes of 22×10 and 22×12.5 in the front and rear, respectively. The Brushed Dark Clear finish works nicely with the Melbourne Red exterior of the vehicle. Add a slight drop, some performance tires together with a carbon fiber rear diffuser and an Akrapovic exhaust system, and you’ve got a vehicle that can hold its own equally on both the racetrack and in the children pickup area.
Thanks to Alex Stone Photography, we have a great and detailed look at this complete build. Check out the complete photoshoot gallery of this build right below.
