Arrow GUNTHER 4.0 > Revived

Gunther (and myself) have been out of the game for quite some time.

Ever since the vandal disgraced my M5, it was time to get revenge in the best (legal) way possible:

Making it more revolutionary and game-changing.
Introducing the 4th Gen. of Gunther
The first M5 with 355s in the WORLD.

What else has been done?

Lamborghini Triple White (balloon white)
Brembo 405mm 6 pot F and 380mm 4 pot R
RDSport sway bars
Radenergie 21x9.5 21x13 RF01 (new for 2012)
Pirelli P Zero Nero 255/30/21 355/25/21
Custom wide *****

None of this would have been possible without the great men at Ranz Motorsports (RanzMotorsports.com) Randy, Jay, Chiap, the whole crew putting hard time in the body.

Race Technologies for the Brembos

RDsport

Raphael @ Pirelli USA

Everyone at WPI

Brembo 405mm 6POT Front
Brembo 380mm 5POT Rear

Amazing job! The design mod on the rear bumper is a super nice touch!

+1 on posting up couple shots from rear and close up of rear wheels. BTW, you should call Guinness for that rear wheel record!

So are you having to park Gunther in a cave on strict lockdown!?
