This is a BMW X1. No really, it is. I’ve seen a lot on modified BMWs in my day, but I haven’t never seen a SUV tuned in such a way before. When was the last time you saw widebody, front splitter, carbon fiber rear wing and SUV in the same sentence?
Ever since I’ve started the story series I’ve been ‘hunting’ down a BMW E39 M5. Not only is it one of the best M cars ever made but it’s also my favourite ever BMW. It features a 5 litre naturally aspirated V8, a manual transmission and it’s driven only by its rear wheels.
I cannot begin to tell you how excited I was to experience this iconic BMW. Out of the 6,309 1M cars that we're built, only 116 units were ever sold in Sweden. And the owner of this very good looking Valencia Orange example, Michael, kindly accepted our invitation to make a film about it.
