We are happy to announce our latest full scale in-house build.
Mike is a long time customer and friend who recently joined both the JleviSW family and the ///M fold. We are simply overjoyed to have him as a member of our team, and as such, we have set about on a project to transform his E60 M5 into something we are proud to park in our parking lot every day.
Our goal with this build is not simply to create a menacing M5, but also to maintain the drivability and daily use of this vehicle.
The E60 M5 was Mike's vehicle of choice due to its incredible power delivery. Though Mike initially intended to wind up with an E46 M3, he found that the allure of the 5 liter V10 of the E60 M5 was simply too great. Couple this with the fact the he is able to transport people (and, more importantly, his golf clubs), and you can see why Mike surprised us with an E60 M5.
Throughout the process of building this vehicle, we will adhere to a couple important principles:
- The vehicle will look, perform, and feel better than original
- Minimal (if any) compromise from the driver will be tolerated
- The vehicle will remain functional and utilitarian as it was designed to be
We hope you'll join us and follow along as the ///Marauder 5 comes to life.
