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

Raphael @ Pirelli USA

Thank you, a lot of time and thought went into it

That's pretty crazy. Amazing job!
The way the widening was done was amazing, I'll post pics up so you get a better idea

Damn. That back end is sweet, love how it sweeps down to the side. Awesome looking.
I'm blushing :hihihi:

Beautiful.
Thank you Douglas, don't you love them? they stop on a DIME

One sweet ride John. I love everything you have done to it. We have the same size Brembo BBKs:D

John that is one sick ride. Best looking E60 I've seen. You need to get with Mert for a wide body photoshoot. Also please post some pics from the rear as I really want to see how the 13" wide wheels with 355 tires look.

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! :7:

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

Dude, that was a fun drive. Mo always takes the best pictures. Are you going to the Motor4Toys event next month? I think it's on Dec 4th. I'll be heading up with the San Diego crew! You should roll with us. :)

You need to find a way to get that widebody to the masses. Best E60 M5 out there. Amazing! I've been eye'ing up the Nissan GTR and this is making me change my mind.

Wow! Just amazing John, one hell of a job well done. That is the best looking M5 hands down. I have never cared for any prior widebody kits for the M5 but you nailed it. Tasteful and not over done.
Congrats.

John - Great to see you back in full swing. Sweet ride man, loved it before and can't wait to see the new version in person. You should bring her up to our next Palomar Mtn run in early Dec. We have some heavy hitters and pretty sick rides there too.

I'm absolutely SPEECHLESS!! The video gives me a great perspective as to how it looks in person. I just drooled all over and ruined my laptop!:tonquesmilie:
I bet Gunther had the guy in the new CLS AMG a little envious :biggrinbounce:
I wish you many safe miles in the new and improved beast. Take care John :cheers:

Looks freakin sweet John! Resetting the bar to stratospheric heights.

Those wide wheels look insane but I have to ask, do you feel any decrease in accleration? I'm sure you're traction has greatly improved but I'm sure they also slowed you down a bit?

Anyway, you still owe me some info on those wheels. ;)
