Hamann BMW M5 is on a 'Mission'

This M5 gets a serious attitude adjustment

BMW is already known for is aggressive styling, especially with its M line. But when Hamann gets a hold of one of BMW's finest, you know it's going to go from aggressive to downright menacing. Not surprisingly, Hamann's BMW M5 (Type F10) 'Mission' really pulls all the stops.

The Mission's front end goes beyond the classic kidney shaped grills by adding an aggressive front spoiler that spills over the daytime running lights, giving anyone standing in its way a clear message. A deep front splitter adds to the bright LED lights running under the high volume air intakes.

There's more to love, as the Mission is 1.1-inches wider, and its sporty wings, side skirts, door fixtures, and broad rear wheel housings are made out of carbon weighing in at no more than 7.05 pounds on each side.

Filling in the wider wheel wells are 21-inch forged Vredestein Ultrac Vorti R wheels (Anniversary Evo Hyperblack or Unique Forged Formula rims) which look especially mean with the Hamann M5 1.3-inches closer to the ground. Speaking of close to the ground, the diffuser encompasses two stainless steel exhaust pipes, which are left and right of the new rear silencer. Bringing the car even closer to the road is the roof spoiler, which provides better contact with the ground at autobahn extreme speeds.

The exterior is not the only Alpine-white part of the M5, the interior's leather is finished in the same color, accented by carbon embossing. But stopping there wouldn't be Hamann's style; the pedals, footrest, and door sills are made of aluminum, which bring the menacing look to a close.
