BMW is widely recognized as the company that transformed the concept of the four door car. The menacing acceleration of the first M5 super sedan, the shockingly sporting character of the standard 3 series, and of course the incredible capability of the M3 have made BMW a company that has redefined automobiles for a generation.
In this same way, in 1999 BMW redefined the 4×4 truck segment with the launch of their brand new X5. BMW’s unique approach shattered contemporary ideas of what a truck should be, giving BMW fans something that was luxurious in its interior appointments, comfortable when used as a daily driver, and an absolute adventure to drive when compared to offerings from Rover, Jeep, and Mercedes. Nothing was similar, and yet suddenly, the rest of the car building world was forced to take note and catch up.
A decade after the release of the X5, BMW created their incredible X5M. This amazing machine has the absolute utility and comfort of an X5, with the otherworldly performance typically left to BMW’s sports sedans. Once again, BMW had changed everything.
With the release of the F85 X5M and the F86 X6M, BMW will once again work miracles to push the X5 further into uncharted territory. With even more power on tap, a beautiful interior, more dynamic suspension, and rumors of Nurburgring lap times that rival the E92 M3, the new X5M cars make this a great time to be an X5 fan.
IND’s interpretation of the X5M strives to maintain the car’s sense of luxury and composure, while adding M car touches that bring it’s Motorsport derived character to the forefront. IND’s X5M was enhanced with the following components:
