Turner BMW F10 M5 Frozen Gray Project Car

** Updated 7/13/2015 **

The M5 has always been a favorite amongst us here at Turner. There is nothing quite like a super luxury sedan with huge amounts of power. The unassuming aesthetics and absurd performance figures combined with the latest technology and gadgets make this car the ultimate sleeper. To the untrained eye the M5 might just look like any other luxury sedan on the road today with its long wheelbase and bulky appearance. Aside from some subtle changes in the front and rear aero features of the car along with the M5 side grills and M5 wheels, the car does not look much different than any other F10 5-series, especially considering both the 550 and 535 are available with M sport packages which make them look almost identical to the M5 from the front.



This latest M5 comes from a strong lineage of high performance super sedans which means it has an extremely high expectation to live up to. Both the E39 and E60 M5s produced huge amounts of power. The E39's 5.0 liter V8 made amazing torque throughout the entire power band making it a blast to drive while making the life of the OE clutch very short. The E60 had a very different type of power, the kind of power that is only really utilized on the racetrack or the autobahn. There is nothing quite like that S85 V10 revving at 8000 rpm.

This latest M5 comes with the S63TU which is a twin turbo 4.4 liter V8 producing 560 HP and just over 500 ft-lbs of torque edging out the E60 by 60 horsepower and 116 ft-lbs of torque. In addition to the added power, there is some added weight as well;
