Subject 2013 BMW Widebody M5
The wheels were a completely bespoke design created in partnership with the client and 1221 wheels. They were created for the specific purpose of creating the lightest weight forged wheel in the largest size. 21x10.5 fronts and 21x12.5 rears with a 355/25/21 rear tire makes this the largest tire fitment on the back of a F10 M5 ever. Perfect measurements and precise engineering allowed for a flawless fitment without the use of a single spacer.
Brakes were another 1st in the BMW world. Sourced from Japan, these full billet aluminum 8 Piston front and 6 piston rear calipers are matched with a staggering 435MM Front and 405MM Rear 2 piece wave cut rotor completely filling the inside of a 21" wheel creating an astounding look while providing maximum stopping power.
A full custom Sakhir Orange interior was sourced and with our interior partner we installed alcantara suede and ultrasonic welded leather inserts. All door panels, seat surrounds, pillars, and plastic panels were fully wrapped in alcantara suede creating a fully custom luxury interior feel when in the cockpit.
The car has hundreds of other additions that must be seen in person, full custom LED headlights, Methanol Injection, BMS Custom Air Intake and ECU programs, AWE exhaust, Satin Carbon Accents, Custom Billet LM Hood and Trunk badges, Whiteline Custom taillights, custom painted engine bay, and more!
This M5 set the bar height to a distance that many haven't seen in person. In every sense of the word, it truly has to be viewed in person to appreciate the thought process and to properly illustrate the emotion created with this build.
Are you ready to reach for new heights???
True Automotive Art, form and function was the goal over the span of this 12 month project. Starting with our clients low mile 2013 BMW M5 F10, we began down the path of envisioning an M5 that has yet to be created. With a goal of creating a completely one off show car that was also able to be driven and enjoyed to the cars maximum potential we started down our research and design path.
Starting with the body, we sourced the first Prior Design PDX widebody kit in North America to begin our body modifications. Once mocked up, we spent the following months completing several design alterations to the supplied body components and tailor fit each panel while hand shaping and forming each panel to mimic the exact factory body panel lines and gaps. This step is the most overlooked step in the popular widebody trend resulting in a sub-par installation, we never allow that to happen at any cost. The M5 received completely new front and rear custom bumpers, fender flares, rocker panels, sideskirts, rear diffuser, front splitter, grilles, spoilers, and more.
The body was then painted BMW Alpine white and let cure for over a month prior to the extensive vinyl color change wrap by our expert vinyl installer Justin V. Over the span of several weeks we utilized APA Satin Battleship grey vinyl and in several stages wrapped every inch of the car including door jambs completely. We painted all of the under hood, trunk, and underside of hood for him to install a perfect line when wrapping to the edges completely hiding all of the white exterior. This is what we call a full show vehicle wrap, creating a complete, cohesive color change.
The cars full custom Air ride suspension is powered by an Accuair Endo CVT management system, tray mounted in the trunk allowing complete access to the trunk floor resulting in a very clean installation.
