We already know that BMW is celebrating this year the 30th anniversary of the M5 and what better way to do it than with a special edition. According to the latest reports from the Dutch magazine Autovisie, BMW will roll out the M5 30th Anniversary Edition.
The new edition will be powered by the same 4.4-liter V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo that generates 600 hp (441 kW), which means it will get 40 more hp comparing it with the standard version.
We do expect the M5 30th Anniversary Edition to be a little faster than the regular version due to the power increase. The standard M5 can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.4 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 13.0 seconds, while top speed is limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph.
What we do know is that the top speed of the limited edition is electronically limited at 305 km/h or 189 km/h. In addition, BMW will only produce 300 units of this special edition. Furthermore, the anniversary edition of the M5 will include some design upgrades, but for the moment we don’t know what.
The Competition Package, might also be offered as standard to the 300 lucky customers who will be able to buy this special edition. For those who don’t know, the Competition Package offers an upgraded suspension as well as a power bump of 15 hp (11 kW).
