The world of tuning has many resounding names. Romeo Ferraris is definitely one of them but not because of their tuning efforts.
Unlike AC Schnitzer, Alpina or Brabus, Romeo Ferraris sounds great because their name is mix up between two car brands (and one character for that matter) that have written history.
For what it’s worth, the F10 BMW M5 tuning program they’ve got going on seems to prove the fact that they’re at work on raising up to their name.
They fitted the new big sporty sedan with a revised ECU and a sports exhaust system to make for a bit of a boost in power.
The 4.4 liter V8 engine now reels its twin-turbocharger setup to a maximum power output 635 horsepower and 546 lb-ft of torque.
Throw in a downpipe without pre-catalyst, a catalyst metal center with 200 cells some titanium bits, revised tips and even more chip tuning and you go to phase two of the tuning process.
At this point, the Romeo Ferraris F10 BMW M5 is capable of developing up to 657 horsepower and 582 lb-ft of torque.
We suspect that with the extra power the acceleration from 0 to 62 gets even closer to 4.0 seconds and the top speed is expected to go beyond 200 mph this time.
It seems that the whole of the exterior remains standard and that the interior of the BMW M5 is still in the same shape it leaves the Bavarian factory in.
That’s not really a problem but Romeo Ferraris should have probably been a little more careful with the way the cooling on the F10 BMW M5 works.
