BMW M5 Colour Design

Colour is the ultimate expression of an individual’s character. It has a highly emotional, almost sensual, element and tells us about the kind of person someone is. This also applies to BMW M. The Colour and Trim Designers create extroverted, expressive colours by adding strong basic tones and shades that are refined to the last detail. A BMW M model’s paintwork can evoke warmth or the cold depending on its depth. In addition to this, the interplay of different tones emphasises the individuality of its character.

The interior design also requires an emotional instinct. Only the perfect combination of the highest quality wood, carbon, leather and other materials produce an atmosphere preserve the emotionality of the exterior. The new BMW M5 is proof of that.
