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 go chrome!

Despite what the drift video below might lead one to guess, the DJ was not responsible for the accident as he was traveling in the U.S. at the time.
