The M5 Features model specific bodywork including aerodynamic front and rear bumpers and M5 badges inlaid to the body side mouldings. The kidney grilles are chrome, and windows are lightly tinted.
The original headlights have been replaced in favour of Hella Xenon European style “angel-eye” units. The exhaust is expelled via an Eisenmann Race-spec quad-tip muffler system which is said to be the only engine modification.
The car is further equipped with powered mirrors and a sliding and tilting sunroof. 18” BMW badged black-chrome wheels are wrapped in Michelin Pilot super sports measuring 245/40ZR18 in the front and 275/35ZR18 in the rear.

Inside the cabin is seating for five upholstered in a two-tone Le Mans Blue and Black premium leather. The sport seats up front are 10-way powered. The dash is finished with Black leather and Le Mans Blue leather is used for the door cards. A UUC short shifter has been installed, with M5 badging found on the recently replaced shifter knob, as well as on the door sills and carpets. An M5 leather wrapped steering wheel with red and blue stitching fronts an analog instrumentation panel with a 300 km/hr speedometer at the centre, a fuel level indicator to the left, and an 8K rpm tachometer to the right.

Powering the M5 is a naturally aspirated all aluminium 4.9-litre DOHC V8 engine, designated the S62 by BMW. Power is sent from the engine to the rear wheels via a Getrag 420G 6-speed manual transmission. The S62 engine features a dual row timing chain, dual Vanos camshafts and individual throttle bodies for each cylinder inside an intake plenum with a carbon fibre crest reading BMW MPower. The S62 can also be found in the BMW Z8, and is rated at 394 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 369 lb-ft of torque at 3,800 rpm when placed into the M5.
