An array of modifications has transformed this metallic blue X5M to an even more aggressive SUV.
Miami-based tuning outfit Velos Designwerks has gone to town on BMW's high-performance luxury SUV, fitting the X5M with a host of performance and exterior modifications. First up, the tuner added its Stage 2+ kit to upgrade the 555-horsepower 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 to 645 hp, and then added a new Akra exhaust and downpipes. To give the vehicle the visual prominence to convey its upgraded performance capabilities and keep it planted on the road, Velos fitted a Vorsteiner carbon-fiber front splitter and rear diffuser.
An IND cosmetic package includes blacked-out grille, smoked lights and tinted windows, while the suspension has been upgraded with KW components with a set of custom ADV1 alloys packing bigger Brembo brakes. Completing the package is a BMW Performance steering wheel and a Valentine One radar detector to keep the cops at bay.
