Taking after the Nurburgring M5 Ring Taxi, the Norwegian track Rudskogen has also purchased and prepped a 2013 F10 M5 to serve as its official track car. First modifications have been made to the interior – in the form of a rollcage and Recaro seats all around.
Next up will be the brakes and suspension.
Studie AG has also gotten their hands on the F10 M5 and begun work fitting multiple wheels and parts onto their project M5.
The car has been lowered on KW Clubsport suspension and test fitted with 20″ Advan Racing GT, 21″ Advan AVS Model F15, 21″ AC Schnitzer Type VIII, and the full AC Schnitzer aero kit.
Check out this major update to the 2013 M5 (F10) project car by IND.

The 2013 F10 M5 with its 4.4L V8 S63Tu turbo engine has previously been shown to be underrated from the factory, which is BMW’s habit with its official quote power figures.
The latest results showing this come from iND who have just begun performance testing on their F10 M5. The result was 527 RWHP (rear wheel horsepower) on a totally stock F10 M5 running on pump gas and dyno’d on a dynojet. This represents just a 6% drivetrain loss.
The M5′s S63tu V8 runs a higher compression at 10.0:1 (@ 22 PSI), compared to the X5M/X6M S63 engine’s 9.3:1 (@ 17 PSI).
