BMW M5 ’30 Jahre M5′ edition is revealed today or yesterday. Yes, it has been 30 years since the BMW revealed the first M5! Unfortunately, my first encounter with the BMW M5 was in 1996 or 1997. But it is my all time favourite car, even though my chance to owning a M5 is really low but this does not prevent me to emerge emotional links with the M5 :)
The 30 Jahre M5 is a bit more special than your friend’s M5, who revs up the engine all day with no particular reason. The BMW M5 30 Jahre M5 comes with the Competition Package which is optional on the normal M5s. The engine produces 600 HP and 700 Nm of torque. This means extra 40 HP and 20 Nm! The engine is coupled with the lovely 7-speed DCT automatic gearbox, and stagerring weight of 1.8-tonne! 30 Jahre M5 does need 3.9 seconds to reach 100 km/h and the top speed is limited 250 km/h. Or you can pay extra and unlock to 305 km/h, which I found it senseless. You will never drive that fast and try not to drive that fast!
BMW M5 30 Jahre M5 edition is a very remarkable car and only available 300 people. I hope they will look after this car well.
