Challenge F10 M5 OEM Carbon Race Trunk ( carbon / kevlar )

The first F10 M5s are slowly trickling into the United States, and U.S. based BMW enthusiasts can finally breathe a bit easier. After nearly a full year of waiting and speculation, the ensuing deliveries are allowing lucky M5 owners to experience these amazing machines for themselves. All of us at IND are very eager to begin work on the chassis, and over the past few weeks we have worked diligently to gather the most promising new performance parts for the F10 M5.

One of the most exciting programs developing for the F10 M5 is from Challenge Engineering. While the F10 M5 is already a world-beating performance car, it’s overall weight is certainly not a performance advantage. Reducing the car’s weight will be one of the most critical factors in improving overall performance, and Challenge has already been attacking this problem in earnest. Their carbon fiber roof is a no-holds-barred offering for those who will stop at nothing to reduce weight, but the new carbon fiber trunk is something that offers an excellent weight savings with less compromise in functionality.



The Challenge carbon fiber trunk is designed to look just like the OE BMW trunk, while offering a 70% weight savings over stock. The new trunk is constructed from carbon fiber with a carbon kevlar inner lining for added strength, and integrates perfectly with the OE trunk badge, locking mechanism, and trunk carpeting. The weight savings is found at the extreme rear of the car, helping not only with a contribution to a lower center of gravity, but also to a lower polar moment of inertia.

The Challenge Engineering carbon fiber trunk weighs in at a weightless 9.5lbs, while the OE BMW trunk has a 31lb weight!

Please contact an IND representative for more information.









OEM Weight: 31lb


Challenge Weight: 9.5lb

This specific trunk we did in a 1 x 1 weave, but the trunk can essentially be done in either 2 x 2 or even 4 x 4.
