Earlier in the year, the very last model of the BMW M5 30 Jahre Edition allocated for the United States sold for $700,000 at auction. On the back of the potent M5 variant clearly rising in value, another example has appeared up for sale via DuPont Registry for $325,000. To put that price into comparison, the car started at $134,275 when initially unveiled.
The BMW M5 30 Jahre Edition in question has travelled just 320 km with the exterior finished in Frozen Silver Metallic (like all are) while the interior is adorned with full merino leather and black alcantara. While it remains to be seen if the car will sell for its asking price, a mere 30 examples were offered to the U.S. so it is certainly quite a rare beast.
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.
