BMW has recently introduced the M5 version of the F10 generation, but certain tuners are still nostalgic and are releasing modification packages for the previous generation of the 5er. Ladies and Gentlemen, we give you the edo M5 Dark Edition (yes, its the E61).

You know us - we’ll start with the tech mods. The naturally aspirated 5-liter V10 unit has received new air filters and catalytic converters, a custom exhaust system, as well as a new ECU map.

Thus, the engine now delivers 555 hp and a peak torque of 560 Nm (413 lb-ft). The tuner has went even further, removing the speed limiter, which means that the car can now hit 190 mph (305 km/h). As for the 0 to 62 mph sprint, this is now dealt with in 4.2 seconds, while the sprint from 100 km/h (62 mph) to 200 km/h (124 mph) sprint is covered in under ten seconds

The vehicle has also been fitted with an aerodynamic package that use a discreet appearance (well, calling this ride a sleeper would be a bit of a far stretch, but we'll do it) and received a set of 20-inch lightweight alloy rims that use Dunlop rubber (255/35 R20 fronts, 285/30 R20 rears).

Here’s how the aftermarket developer describes its creation :“But the edo M5 Dark Edition is not just an athlete; it also makes a great daily driver with 5 seats and generous cargo space. On the way to the supermarket this rocket ship is perfectly tame, thanks to its remarkable level of comfort and the wonderfully smooth V10 engine. Casual observers would never guess what lurks under the hood.
