We all celebrate landmark Birthdays. 10, 18, your 21st, but after 21 it all goes a bit quiet until the big 3-0. The BMW M5 hitting 30 years old and the super saloon is still going strong. Its latest turbocharged incarnation is the fastest generation yet, but the Germans want to mark its 30th anniversary by making it even faster! BMW M5 30 Jahre is a 592BHP Birthday Present.
The BMW M5 30 Jahre, meaning 30 years, uses the new M5 Competition Pack as its starting value. From there its 4.4 litre V8 twin-turbocharged engine is given an additional 25BHP for a total of 592BHP. That is very nearly 600BHP from a car that you can take kids to school in! Torque is also up to 516lb ft. These gains have been achieved though increasing boost pressure form the turbos and enhancing the cars computer systems. Power goes to the rear wheels through a revised 7 speed dual clutch automatic gearbox. Other changes include Matt silver paintwork, new alloy wheels and 30th anniversary badging.
Just 300 BMW M5 30 Jahre will be produced.
