BMW F10 M5 Gets Vorsteiner Aero And V-FF 102 Flow Forged Wheels

Soon, the BMW F10 M5 will be replaced by its successor, the F90 M5. Even though signs of old age are showing on the current M5, the super sedan is still a head turner.  Along with the M3/M4, the F10 M5 is the darling of the aftermarket industry so it’s not uncommon to see a large number of projects around the world.

This one hails from the U.S. where it fell in the hands of California-based tuning shop Vorsteiner who worked its magic on it.

The BMW M5 seen here is fitted with a complete Vorsteiner VRS aero kit. The kit consists of a front spoiler, side skirts, a rear diffuser and a rear decklid spoiler. These parts are made from pre-preg carbon fiber, allowing them to achieve superior strength and stiffness with incredibly lightweight.

Additionally, the BMW M5 is fitted with a set of lightweight Vorsteiner V-FF 102 Flow Forged wheels. These come in sizes of 20×9 in the front and 20×10.5 in the rear. The wheels feature a Carbon Graphite finish.

No power upgrades were given this time to the M5, so the sedan, powered by a 4.4 Liter BMW TwinTurbo engine, delivers 560 horsepower (412 kW) and maximum torque of 502 lb-ft (680 Newton meters). The current-generation M5 will make the acceleration run from 0-62 mph (0-100km/h) in a speedy 4.2 seconds and achieve a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). However, an unrestricted (limiter removed) BMW F10 M5 can hit a top speed of 186 mph (300 km/h). For an aftermarket build that is clearly a great starting point.

With the addition of a complete Vorsteiner carbon fiber aero kit and their V-FF 102 Flow Forged wheels, the vehicle is once again returned to relevance in the visual department.
