Special Edition Bmw M5 Packing More Power Is LaunchedThu, 08 May 2014
BMW’S popular M5 performance saloon has reached an important milestone – it’s 30 years old. And to celebrate, the German car maker has unveiled a limited edition model boasting more power than any previous M5.
Branded the M5 30 Jahre Edition, this limited run ’30 Years’ version packs 600 horsepower – 40 more than the standard car. Furthermore, it can sprint from zero to 62mph in a lightning fast 3.9 seconds.
This special anniversary model borrows heavily from the Competition package M5 variant, itself a more focused version of the base car thanks to a raft of upgrades such as tweaks to the suspension, transmission and steering.
And like the car you’ll have to be quick if you’re interested, as BMW is producing only 300 ’30 Year’ M5s, with only 30 slated for the UK priced at £91,890.
