This is exactly how you should make a handsome SUV (SAC) like the potent BMW X5 F85! The team of Baan Velgen recently released the pictures for this carbon black lacquered X5 and of course we can not hide it from you. The highlights are a new set of alloy wheels and a discreet carbon body kit and in conjunction with a low lowering the visual appearance could not be better. Let's start with the body kit. Here, the owner decided for components from the house 3D design and more specifically, it's an elegant spoiler lip for the front M-bumper, subtle lugs for the side skirts, and a rear apron neck in diffuser look. All components come with a nice visible carbon surface.
Matching the rear diffuser, there was also a stainless steel sports exhaust system from the house Akrapovic (Akrapovic Evolution Titanium exhaust system) and this comes with four large tailpipes including carbon sheathing and the typical Akrapovic logos. It continues with the wheelset from the house HRE Performance Wheels comes and hears the name P103. The ultra-light forged wheels come in a stylish dull black and are mounted on the front axle in 21 × 9,5 inches while the rear axle carries stately 21 × 10,5 inches.
So that the wheelset sits perfectly in the wheel arch, there was a lowering by means of H&R sport springs and thus more sportiness and dynamism are automatically incorporated into the M sports suspension of the Munich SAV (Sport Activity Vehicle). And in complete contrast to almost all other modified BMWs, this one doesn't come with a set of black kidneys and gills from the optional M-Performance program, which we don't find annoying at all.
No information is currently available to us for a possible increase in performance or changes in the interior. As we recently but only on Z-Performance X5M have seen 750 PS are not really difficult to realize and maybe even this X5 is a bit more potent than the series on the way. If we get more details about the changes, there is, of course, an update for this report. It is best to subscribe to our feed and if there is something new you will get in touch immediately. We wish you a lot of fun watching the pictures.
