BMW M5 Nighthawk is a Japan Special

Limited Edition

Limited to just ten units, Japanese buyers now have the chance to spend a small fortune on a blacked-out M5.

BMW has a soft-spot for special edition JDM models. In recent months the Bavarian carmaker has rolled out a limited edition 5er, a special 760i, and a so-called 116i Fashionista. And its latest Japanese special is based on the M5. Dubbed the “Nighthawk,” just ten special edition models will be produced. Distinguishing it from the stock M5 is BMW Individual Frozen Black Matte paint, 20-inch matte black alloys, adaptive LED headlamps, dark chrome kidney grille, and blacked-out door handles and sports exhaust.

Contrasting the black exterior is a bright Sakiru orange interior with Merino leather seats and carbon trim. By adding BMW’s new Competition Package, the 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 gets a 15-hp bump to 575 horsepower, knocking the 0-62 mph time down by 0.1 to 4.2 seconds, while chassis upgrades include carbon-ceramic brakes and enhanced driving dynamics. Available from next month, the limited edition BMW M5 Nighthawk is priced at 18,200,000 Yen, which is a under $182,000 or twice that of an M5 Stateside.
