AW F10 M5 "race car" with rollcage and recaros owned by Norwegian racetrack

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Wanted to share some pictures of this car with you. The pictures was taken with iphone so sorry for the bad quality.

For the last week we have had this M5 in our shop, but the guys didn't tell me untill it was going to be picked up. The car is owned by the Norwegian racetrack Rudskogen.

I have talked to them about Akrapovic exhaust, but they are focusing on brakes and suspension first.

Edit: more pictures

I don't think I would want to sit in the back with that cage unless I had a helmet on and even then. In a wreck your head would when it hit the metal bar.

I wonder how much weight is saved/shaved with full recaros in the M5.
Stock car's enemy is weight. OEM seats are pretty heavy so i reckon close to 200lbs saved.

I don't even want to imagine how much faster the car will be around 4000lbs.

I seriously doubt 400 lbs was shaved out with only four Recaro seats.
The brackets for the seats add quite a bit of weight.
Not to mention the roll cage adds weight as well.

I wonder if this is the beginning of the diet.
I wonder if you stripped it completely down how much you can lost maybe 1000 lbs.
I've heard of one E39 M5 track car losing about 800 lbs of weight.
The car has absolutely no creature comforts to speak of.

I've always wanted to see a sedan with 4 racing seats, so thank you!
I almost did this in my E90 M3 before I decided to sell it!

LOVING IT!!!
