To celebrate the 35th anniversary of the BMW M5, the German brand has released a new special edition model, limited to just 350 units

The BMW M5 celebrates its 35th anniversary this year so, to mark the occasion, the German brand has launched a special edition variant called the M5 Edition 35 Years. Production will be limited to 350 units when it reaches the global marketplace in July this year.

Exterior styling revisions for the new model are restrained, being limited to a unique matte-metallic grey paint finish and a fresh set of 20-inch alloy wheels. The special edition M5’s brake calipers are also painted black, although buyers can spec the firm’s carbon ceramic brake package and gold calipers as an optional extra.

Inside, the BMW’s latest limited edition M5 gets reupholstered sports seats finished in black and beige, a unique set of tread plates inscribed with the “M5 Edition 35 Years” badge and a laser-engraved numbered plaque for the cup-holder cover.

BMW’s 35th anniversary M5 is powered by the same twin-turbocharged 4.4-litre V8 engine as the M5 Competition. It produces 616bhp and 750Nm of torque which, like the standard car, is fed to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission, allowing a 0–62mph time of 3.3 seconds and an electronically-limited top speed of 155mph.
