This car is featured on the cover of BMW Car.. made for a great read. Its owned by a Ron Cash? I think... he has a company called Currency something and plans to test the car officially and then sell limited editions of it at $350,000. Hate the wheels ..typically american all chrome.. But the car has superb interiors. Dont know if the site has it. But the seats doors and steering wheel is lined with black Crocodile skin leather. Subtle but fabulous.

Poor crocodile...but then again, I'd much rather be stitched forever within an M5, rather than being left to die in some godforsaken swamp. Still too expensive though.
