Hamann showcases its F10 M5 Mi5Sion at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, or what we think might be an M5

To say it’s a radical looking kit for the M5 would be an understatement. The Mi5Sion M5 receives widebody fenders that have added 30mm on each side. It has custom front and rear bumpers, carbon fiber trunk spoiler, door handles, and rear diffuser.

The interior features a contrasting black-white theme, with Alpine White and black leather seats to match the exterior and white trims throughout to continue the theme.

In terms of M cars at the 2013 Geneva show, BMW has brought out two M6 models – a Frozen Silverstone M6 Gran Coupe and a San Marino Blue M6 Convertible.

Unfortunately, there has been no sign of the F80 M3 concept, which many speculated may be making its debut here at the show. We’ve reported in the past that we believe (and still do) that the F80 M3 concept will instead bow in September at the Frankfurt Auto Show.

The 560 hp M6 Gran Coupe was revealed 3 months ago [official thread] and has been priced in the US starting at $113,000 [official pricing info].

M3POST member koop shares with us his journal from his BMW Individual M3 re-delivery at the PCD. From koop:

As some of you may remember, I was fortunate enough to take European Delivery of my Individual Azurite/Rust Brown E92 M3 in Munich last December. It was an awesome experience! (The original thread is here).

After a forever-taking 10-week wait, my M3 and I were finally reunited at the Performance Center in South Carolina last week. The experience was just as fantastic as Munich, but in an entirely different way. We were treated like VIPs from the moment we arrived at the airport until we drove off in our new M. If you can stand to wait a little longer for delivery and take a couple of … CONTINUED

It’s been a while since the last spotting of the F82 M4 Coupe, but it’s been worth the wait this sighting as the prototype has now lost some camouflage, revealing much more!

So, what revealing things do we see in this new sighting?

• Double slatted kidney grilles.
• LED headlights
• LED tail lights
• Sculpted double-bubble carbon fiber roof (a la M6 Coupe)
• Production side mirrors (but still under camouflage)
• Integrated trunk spoiler
• Deliciously wide rear stance

What about the F82 M4 mechanicals? If you recall, we recently reported on information gleamed from the M4 prototype’s registered VIN information (posted below).

The highlight is the 310kW (415 hp) S55 3.0L inline 6 engine listed [photos]. Consistent with the information we’ve been posting, this would have the next M3 and M4 … CONTINUED

A recent unfortunate crash of an E92 M3 coupe on the Nurburgring Nordschleife was caught in on-board video.

The modified M3 (eibach springs, akrapovic exhaust and brembo brakes) lost traction and went off track when negotiating. the Whipperman turn on the wet track.

The M3 was eventually fixed and sold, and the former M3 owner now carves the Ring in a BMW HP4.

Have a look at a Frozen Monte Carlo Blue E92 M3 and the world’s first Frozen Sakhir Orange E92 M3 coupe, both BMW Individual ordered colors.

Spotted by M3POST member M3 Piotr:

These two were special ordered by Pentagon Car Sales (US Military Sales in Germany). They come with Individual Frozen Paint, as well as the extended leather with body color stitching, all OEM shadowline trim (front grills, hood scoops, side gills, exhaust tips,) and OEM black GTS wheels. Additionally, the owner of Pentagon Car Sales David Baker went step further and “modded” these a little bit before they go out for sale. He added Akrapovic slip on with Carbon Black tips, and some goodies from IND. Some of you might jump to a conclusion that he … CONTINUED
