This beautiful Interlagos Blue BMW E63 650i comes from HRE Wheels. The vehicle is powered by the N62B48 4.8 L V8 engine, delivering a pretty good 362 horsepower and 490 Nm (361 lb-ft). This is enough to propel the 650i from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in just 5.3 seconds. The car will reach an electronically limited top speed of 155mph (250km/h). Thanks to a set of HRE Classic 305 wheels, the somewhat dated exterior appearance of the vehicle is returned to relevance to the fullest.
The wheels are part of the HRE Classic Wheel collection with a well-known designs of the 1990s when custom wheels began gaining popularity. For the most part, these forged 3-piece and Monoblock designs are meant to elicit memories of some of HRE’s most popular wheels. On the other hand, the wheels are designed to today’s much higher standards for strength and quality, but also, given a modern touch so that they complement sports cars new and old, the Classic Series is truly timeless.
For this build, these HRE Classic 305 wheels are sized 20×9 in the front and 20×11.5 in the rear. Thanks to a Satin Charcoal finish, they fit the overall color scheme of the vehicle perfectly. Take a look at the car’s build gallery right below.
