BMW M5 Ute

Cereal submitted this build to me, but it’s something I saw years ago while reading Street Machine Magazine when the car was still a concept. It belongs to professional Aussie golfer Stuart Appleby, and it shows what happens when you’re a BMW nut with a whole lot of disposable income. An M5 sedan is given the ute/pickup treatment to fit some golf clubs in the back, with all the body work being fabricated the old school way, in metal.

There’s a great website dedicated to the whole build with detailed explanations of the concept, plus captions under each build picture. What I’ve shown you is just the tip of the iceberg, so check out http://www.m5ute.com/ for the full story.

For those of you who just have to read a forum build thread, there’s one on M5Board.com, click here to read it.

There’s also an article with more images of the finished car on Jalopnik that you can read by clicking here.
