[VIDEO] BMW i5 M60 with Stunning Frozen Deep Grey Matte Finish

The new electric BMW 5 Series, previously showcased in Frozen Pure Grey paint, now reveals a darker shade in a recent walkaround video. The Frozen Deep Gray i5 debuts as an M Performance model. It boasts an impressive 21-inch wheels, the largest ones available for this new luxury car. The Individual customization range also offers these two-tone alloy wheels (design 954). It beautifully complements the red brake calipers positioned behind them. They also feature a blue contour of the BMW roundel.

Opting for this colour will set you back €3,750. Meanwhile, the striking wheels come at a price of €2,450 in Germany. These are indeed premium choices. The base i5 M60, without any additional upgrades, begins at just under €100,000 in the local market. It currently holds the title of the sportiest version in the eighth-generation 5 Series lineup. However, its time as the performance leader will be brief, as the M5 Touring will return next year, reclaiming the top spot.

The i5 M60 boasts a somewhat menacing look, characterized by its Shadowline headlamps and blacked-out kidney grille featuring horizontal slats. Black accents extend to the trunk lid spoiler, a common theme among upscale BMW models in recent times. While this design may complement the Frozen Deep Gray finish, it might be less appealing on cars with brighter colours. Ultimately, beauty remains subjective, influencing one’s appreciation of these features.

The i5 M60’s interior carries the dark theme with seats upholstered in Veganza, BMW’s term for vegan leather. This marks the company’s first leather-free vehicle, as seen in the 2024 5 Series. The cabin features a carbon fibre dashboard trim and a flat-bottomed steering wheel adorned with the M emblem. This aligns with the i5 M60’s performance-oriented character.

The i5 Touring will debut in early 2024, coinciding with the launch of the standard 5 Series Touring models, which will be available in gasoline, diesel, and plug-in hybrid variants for wagon enthusiasts. Additionally, BMW is reportedly working on a compact i3 Touring, expected to launch in 2027, and it will utilize the Neue Klasse platform instead of the CLAR.
