iND has started on its first F10 M5 portfolio project car, for their client, Tom. Per iND:
Perhaps the effect will wear off in time, but for now seeing an F10 M5 in the flesh feels like peering into a toy store. For our client Tom, who has already brought several of his cars to us for some special touches, even a stock twin-turbo super sedan cannot be left untouched. Tom has been an ardent BMW enthusiast since medical school, jumping right into the fray with … CONTINUED

Russia is developing quite a pattern of originating some flashy (yes, understatement) colored BMWs. In the past two years, we’ve witnessed a gold leaf wrapped X5 M and a green chrome F10 5 series originate from the country.
Someone has now decided that Monte Carlo Blue, the flashiest F10 M5 color currently available from the factory, is still not eye catching enough. Why bother fooling around with traditional metallic paint colors or the matte paint options that are all the rage these days when you can just … CONTINUED
