E60 M5 stars in Fast & Furious 6

BMW E60 M5 in Fast & Furious 6

In the 6th installment of the Fast & Furious movies Dom and crew have upgraded their rides. The E60 M5 features prominently in several chase scenes. With at least 12 M5s needed for all the carnage and destruction real M5s would be too much for even this block buster budget. Most of the "M5s" are actually 530s converted to look like M5s. A quick eye will spot the fake M5 exhaust when one of the stunt cars gets destroyed.

Dennis McCarthy, the man responsible for all the cars in Fast & Furious 6 talks about using the E60 M5 for the film.

Quote:
the BMW M5. Those who possess M-Power winter jackets might want to look away, because Dennis took this BMW M5 - specifically, the previous-generation, V10-engined model - and toasted its 507bhp metallic behind to oblivion. "So we had this one sequence with a whole fleet of BMW M5s," says Dennis, "I think we had about 12 in total. It's a great car, the M5. All we did for those driving scenes was to unplug the ABS brakes - which deactivated the traction control - welded the spider gears together, and that was it." But, really, that wasn't it. "We pretty much destroyed every single one." He pauses, then adds, "I think maybe one survived". Ouch.

Not just the exhaust. Some had the standard halogen headlights (M5s only come with Xenons), the brake calipers were the standard small ones (Not the calipers used for the m5), and some had the chrome/aluminium trim (M5 only came with shadow line). Some of the wheels were reps as well. And the exhaust tips looked pretty fake
