Marks the M5's 30th anniversary.
BMW celebrated 30 years of the M5 this year with the reveal of the '30 Jahre M5' edition. The most powerful iteration of the sedan it's ever built, the special edition model is now on show at AMI Leipzig and looks absolutely stunning in its Individual Frozen Dark Silver paint job. Limited to just 300 units, the 30th anniversary M5 is based on the M5 Competition and comes with a revised 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 rated at 592 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque.
The additional 25 hp and 15 lb-ft was achieved by tweaking the ECU and increasing the turbocharger boost pressure. Power is sent to the rear wheels via the M5's seven-speed dual clutch, albeit one with new software mapping. The result is a 0-62 mph sprint time of 3.9 seconds and a top speed limited to 199 mph when combined with the optional M Driver's Package. The black interior comes swathed in Merino leather, Alcantara, aluminum trim and special badging. Priced at $138,275, just 30 units of the 30th Anniversary Edition M5 are bound for the US with buyers receiving a day at M Driving School in Palm Springs, California.
