When you order a Melbourne Red BMW X5 M, you pretty much have all the bases covered. It’s a beautifully finished vehicle, featuring some of the best performance available in that market segment on the market today. On the other hand, the sheer appeal of this vehicle is easily further accentuated by the addition of some aftermarket parts. Namely, a set of carbon fiber aero parts and aftermarket forged wheels. That same approach was taken by the owner of this beauty.
Certainly, some builds feature a lot of aftermarket parts. in those situations, that can overwhelm the vehicle’s design, but this BMW X5 M is tastefully modded, with a selection of high-quality parts.
First, the owner opted for a bit more rumble and better power delivery. The sound coming out of the quad exhaust pipes of the X5 M’s engine is underwhelming for most owners. The vehicle is powered by a 4.4 liter V8 TwinPower Turbo engine delivering 575 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. While the engine allows the all-wheel drive BMW X5 M to accelerate from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in 4.0 seconds, the exhaust note it produced while doing so is rather tame.
Next in line was to upgrade the visual part of the vehicle. Namely, the owner of this vehicle went with a set of HRE P200 wheels this time. While the wheels perfect the BMW X5 M rather well, they are installed in the same sizes as the stock setup – 21×10 in the front and 21×11.5 in the rear – allowing the owner to keep the stock tires, save some funds and keep the same ride quality and performance as the stock setup.
Finally, the owner of this vehicle chose an Akrapovic carbon fiber rear diffuser, along with a set of BBS Wheels anda Brembo GT Big Brake Kit.
The build was done by the guys over at Wheels Boutique, one of the most professional tuning shops out there. Alex Stone did the photoshoot, so you can check this Melbourne Red BMW X5 M with HRE P200 wheels in detail right below.
