M5 touring based ACS5

We know its crazy but we love it! Making its worldwide preview in Frankfurt along with the Audi RS6 Avant and Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Estate, AC Schnitzer’s muscle-wagon is based on the 507 Hp BMW M5 Touring. Like its sedan spouse, the ACS5 Touring packs a ludicrous 552 Hp under its bonnet thanks to the M5’s revised 5.0-litre V10. -Continued after the jump
The V10 unit has been enhanced with a custom engine control module, a special exhaust manifold, sports catalysts and a twin rear silencer with increased gas flow to keep the exhaust back pressure as low as possible. AC Schnitzer also removed the V-max limit on the ACS5 Sport Touring announcing a top speed of around… 320 km/h or 200 mph. Did we mention that it has 500-liters of luggage space and that the rear seats fold?

The ACS5 Sport Touring also features a suspension kit that includes sports performance springs, which lower the centre of gravity of the vehicle further and reduce body roll thanks to the harder set-up, and a special aluminum strut brace for the front axle. In contrast to the standard M5 which is equipped with a two-pot brake, the ASC5’s front wheels are fitted with an 8-pot high performance braking system. Finally, AC-Schnitzer dressed the M5 Touring with a relatively subtle aerodynamic package that includes carbon spoilers, a chromed front grille and 20-inch alloy rims in 245/35 R20 rubber up front and 285/30 R20 or 295/30 R20 at the rear.

I don't quite agree with that. The Type V wheel is a totally new designed wheel for the M6 and became available for the M5 later on. I can tell you, these wheels are a work of art. The finish on them is immaculate. For me they are the best wheels I've ever bought (and I had Hamman, Hartge and Racing Dynamics before). I know, wheels are a thing of personal taste so if you guys don't like them ... fair enough.

The wheels as seen on the 4th picture from the left in your post are totally new. Not the best looking wheels they've designed IMO. I've never seen these from ACS and they probably introduced them with the launch of the M5 touring.

As far as the M5 Touring is concerned ... what a car. That is the übersedan IMO. Remove the ACS sticker on the side and park the one with the type V wheels in my garage please.

I suggested the M5 touring for the Mrs. but she didn't want it because she feels she drives too much around town with the kids and ... she is a women and they seem to be more into the SUV/SAV thing. Makes my hart bleed when I see these pictures. Anyway, driving the 4.8 will be fun as well.
