Custom Truckbed BMWs
Stuart Appleby's M5 Ute Turns an M5 Sedan Into a Drift Car

Professional golfer Stuart Appleby commissioned a custom car shop dubbed Southern Rod in Australia to covert his BMW M5 into an El Camino-style car. The car is easily translated into a car with a truck bed, or Ute.

Stemming from a childhood love of Utes and the M versions of the German luxury cars, Appleby’s creation is a very creative and arguably rare car suitable for drifting. Appleby has a known history of tuning his cars to boost their built-in horsepower. The BMW is said to have taken months to complete, and it meets or exceeds all three of Appleby’s essential car needs: a Ute, a BMW M car and more horsepower.

BMW is also rumored to be testing a similar variation of the car to release to the public.
