BMW M5 arrives in Monterey packing 600 hp and matte paint

Filed under: Sedan, Performance, BMW



What's a sure-fire way to make a vehicle better? Well, you can add power or make it more exclusive. BMW has done both, just in time to celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of the legendary M5 sedan.

Only 300 examples of the car you see above, the M5 30th Anniversary Edition, will be sold to the public, and those lucky owners will enjoy the most exclusive, most powerful M5 ever made. Power continues to flow from the standard M5's twin-turbocharged, 4.4-liter V8, which has had its wick turned up to 600 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. The sprint to 60 now happens in just 3.7 seconds, which is still a scarcely fathomable speed among sports cars, let alone comfortable, finely upholstered sedans.

Speaking of that upholstery, Alcantara and leather seats and an Alcantara steering wheel identify the exclusive M5, while special sill plates further call out the car's unique spec. Outside, the standard Competition Package adds 20-inch wheels and black chrome badges, while 30th Anniversary Editions wear BMW's Frozen Dark Silver matte paint.

As we said, only 300 of these higher-performance M5s will be offered to the public. Of those, only 30 will be coming to the US, with every example almost certainly spoken for (orders opened on May 21).

Scroll down for the full press release and stock images, and then check out the live gallery of the latest M5 at the top of the page.BMW M5 arrives in Monterey packing 600 hp and matte paint originally appeared on Autoblog on Fri, 15 Aug 2014 19:01:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds.
