To celebrate 30 years of the BMW M5 the marquee has created an exclusive, special-edition of the current, fifth-generation model boasting performance that sets it apart from its stablemates.
The BMW M5 30 Jahre Edition (30 years of the M5) will be produced in a limited run of just 300 vehicles worldwide. Only 30 cars will come to the UK.
Developing 600hp and peak torque of 700Nm, this special-edition (combined fuel consumption 28.5mpg; CO2 emissions: 231g/km) is not only the most powerful BMW M5 ever to emerge from series production under the auspices of BMW M GmbH, but also the most powerful production car in the history of the brand.
The car sprints from zero to 62mph in a lightning fast 3.9 seconds.
Its BMW Individual-inspired looks and dynamic and comfort-enhancing equipment makes this special edition M5 set to be a highly desirable collector’s item.
Under the bonnet of the BMW M5 30 Jahre Edition is a 4.4-litre V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology with 40hp more than the standard model.
In keeping with the anniversary celebrations which have inspired its creation, the special-edition model has been given the BMW Individual treatment.
As a result, it cuts a more dynamic, head-turning figure than its standard siblings.
The M5 30 Jahre Edition represents a new high point in 30 years of success that began at BMW Motorsport GmbH in Munich in 1984, and continues to raise the pulses of car fans around the world today. It is on sale now and costs £91,890 OTR.
