Edo Competition M5 Dark Edition Unleashed
The German tunes over at Edo Competition have revealed their tuning program for the BMW M5 Touring. Known to develop aftermarket upgrades for exotic supercars, this time they took probably the most practical high performance vehicle out there and squeezed more hp from the power unit.
Dubbed the M5 Dark Edition, the V10 5.0-liter of the standard model has been modified and it now produces 542 hp (555 PS / 405 kW), which is considerably more than the regular 493 hp (500 PS / 368 kW). They managed to offer this power increase by recalibrating the ECU, installing new sport catalysts, sports air filter as well as a custom-made sports exhaust system. Aside from the increase in horsepower, the maximum torque is also up from 521 to 560 Nm.
While the standard M5 Touring has a limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h), this tuned version will go all the way up to 190 mph (305 km/h). The 0-62 mph sprint is done in 4.2 seconds (0.5 quicker than before) while 0-124 mph takes less than ten seconds.
Design-wise, Edo Competition revised both the front and rear fascias and added a brand new spoiler out in the back. The M5 Touring now sits on 20-inch alloys which are wrapped around in Dunlop tires that measure 255/35 R20 in the front and 285/30 R20 for the back wheels.
