The American exotic and luxury automobile tuner has a brand new set of wheels called Velos Solo V. They are part of the Forged Monoblok Line that was already available for certain models.

In order to have a proper launch for the Velos series, they decided to make a completely custom 2013 X5M, fitted with 22" Solo Vs. These rims are CNC Machined to specific fitments out of 6061-T6 Aluminum and feature Backpad Lightening, a concave profile, and a hubcentric fitment. The Velos Solo Vs are available in 19"-22" fitment in several finishes and are also OEM TPMS compatible where applicable.

For this project, they went for a more aggressive look while trying to maintain the classy appeal of the X5M. The OEM suspension was swapped with a KW Variant 3 Coilover kit that provides a wider range of adjustments for the X5M.

Next in the car's transformation came the chrome accents that were blackened out. The factory ECU was remapped and now the engine has a power output of 640 HP with 842 Nm.

Lastly, the X5M was fitted with the SOLO V Velos Designwerks' Forged Monoblock Wheels at each corner wrapped up in Pirelli tires.
