Studie AG is one of Japan’s biggest dealers and distributors of aftermarket tuning supplies, with a specialty in dressing up BMW’s finest. They usually end up with some pretty bombastic-looking vehicles with elaborate designs and colorful palettes, but this time they chose to go a completely different route.
For this project, the company took a 2010 BMW 5 Series GT and opted for a more subdued paint finish than the bright and colorful hues they’ve been known to use in the past.
For this particular F07 5-Series GT, Studie AG dressed it up in a flat safari green paint finish and christened it the BMW F07 Safari.
At first glance, this car looks to have been taken straight out of a wildlife preserve, but the truth is, there’s nothing “preserved” about this vehicle. Apart from the neat paint finish, Studie AG also enlisted the help of noted BMW aftermarket tuner AC Schnitzer, who provided a front half bumper cover that Studie AG tweaked slightly to make room for a pair of LED driving lights. On top of that, they also put in a set of 19” AC Schnitzer Type IV wheels that measures 19x8.5 at the front with a +15 offset while the rear was given 19x9.5wheels with a +21.5 offset. Studie AG also replaced the hood of the 5-Series GT with a vented version that has rows of louvers on each side.
To complete the whole ‘safari’ look, Studie AG also provided neat graphics on the sides of the car using military font to coincide nwith the safari green paint finish, which, incidentally also looks like the green military color.
