Illustration for article titled Em Five Madness: The Currency Motorcars M5

And speaking of Dutch masters, Vincent and his gang of millionjars at bring us this batshite-mad BMW twin-turbo M5. It's the product of Westlake, California's Currency Motorcars. It's not just some run-of-the-mill tweaker. The super-high-end work includes serious powertrain alterations to unlock upward of 800 horsepower from the V10. The intercooler is a custom job, and the gestalt adds up to a top speed, according to Currency, of 240 mph. As if that figure were not badshite mad enough, it's also gotten $100,000 in interior upgrades - mainly hand-stitched aniline dyed Florida Crocodile, leather and suede. It's an amazing achievement, though somewhere there's a conservationist who will never sleep again.
