The final U.S. spec BMW M5 Jahre Edition has managed to sell for $700,000 at the recently concluded Barrett-Jackson auctions in Scottsdale. All funds from the sale are set to benefit the BMW Car Club of America Foundation.
This particular BMW M5 30 Jahre Edition is essentially brand new with delivery miles only and like the other examples, it features a Dark Frozen Silver paint scheme alongside black chrome wheels and numerous other black accents across the exterior. It is one of just 300 examples of the M5 30 Jahre Edition produced and just 30 of those were built for the North American market.
Under the hood, the BMW M5 30 Jahre Edition comes standard with the same 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine as all other M5 models. However, this engine also comes with the Competition Package and thanks to increased turbocharger pressure and engine control module improvements, an extra 25 hp has been found. Consequently, the BMW M5 30 Jahre Edition delivers a brutal 600 hp and the German marque claims it will hit 96 km/h (60 mph) in a mere 3.7 seconds.
Alongside the engine enhancements, the M5 30 Jahre Edition comes with a numbered plaque in the cabin, a black Alcantara and leather combination across the M multifunctional seats as well as special embroided badges for the special edition M5. Finally, the centre console and door panels are finished in black Alcantara with the headliner featuring Alcantara anthracite.
