With the advent of the all-new BMW F90 M5, the previous generation M5 will become a more prominent feature in aftermarket builds in the following months. The rather attractive price point – after the new model release – will be paired with impressive performance, (still) great looks and plenty of room for refinement. Consequently, that will make the BMW F10 M5 one of the best foundations for an aftermarket build – available on the market today.
The BMW F10 M5 is powered by a 4.4 Liter BMW TwinTurbo engine, delivers 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.
For this owner, however, the subtle cosmetic touches and an aftermarket exhaust system were the only items he deemed necessary to upgrade his vehicle. The cosmetic touches coming form of the BMW M Performance rear diffuser and front kidney grilles, giving the M5 a cleaner, more aggressive look throughout. Next in line was the performance upgrade. Namely, an aftermarket exhaust system. Coming courtesy of Eisenmann, the exhaust not only improves the performance aspect but also gives the BMW M5 a much deeper, louder exhaust note.
