Lightbulb Russian Cranks Up F10 M5 Flash Factor with Chrome Blue BMW M5

Russian Cranks Up F10 M5 Flash Factor with Chrome Blue BMW M5

Russia is developing quite a pattern of originating some flashy (yes, understatement) colored BMWs. In the past two years, we've witnessed a gold leaf wrapped X5 M and a green chrome F10 5 series originate from the country.

Someone has now decided that Monte Carlo Blue, the flashiest F10 M5 color currently available from the factory, is still not eye catching enough. Why bother fooling around with traditional metallic paint colors or the matte paint options that are all the rage these days when you can just go chrome!

Spotted in Moscow recently was this chrome Monte Carlo Blue M5. How was the look achieved? If the green chrome F10's process is any indication, it first had a chrome wrap applied, on top of which a translucent blue wrap was then added.

It's missing a few trim pieces (grilles, rear diffuser), which are presumably being painted, or perhaps chromed.

Wow, I'm surprised, I think it looks pretty cool.
Is the roof carbon or black?

Not sure I'd want to own it, but definitely wouldn't mind looking at it now and again.

Sexy. I'd love to wrap my E93 in a chrome black or red!

I think beauty like this is forgotten nowadays and the fashion trend is matte, which IMHO isn't that glamorous. Feels unfinished to me, but meh, whatever floats your boat.

Gj Russia!

Any Russians wanna chime in?
