Ericsson M5 Earth Concept

For the more fortunate people that can afford the M5 we have this Ericsson M5 Earth Concept. Ericsson really did some magic on this car because they could extract almost 40 extra horse power with an exhaust alone.

This is exhaust has a weight of 21.1kg (normal weight 57.2kg)

  

More weight can be lost with this Dry Carbon Hood, that weighs 6.1kg (normal weight 12.3kg)

On the back you can exchange your trunk for this Dry Carbon Trunk that weighs 4.2kg (normal weight 18.45kg)

Garage Saurus colour codes parts of the R35

Garaga Saurus has made some nice changes to their R35. First I wasn’t fond of the chrome rims, but I think it looks alot better now. That’s becasue they colour coded the black parts on the car. The frontlip, side skirts and rear skirt were all painted white.

You can see here how it looked before.
