Introducing the 2020 BMW M5 Edition 35 Jahre
BMW celebrated 35 years of the iconic M5 with an extremely limited edition
In 1988, BMW established a new standard for performance sedans when the E28 M5 roared onto the scene. Powered by a 256-horsepoer 3.5-liter inline-six-cylinder engine, the E28 M5 was the fastest production sedan ever put to the road at the time and effectively kicked off the legacy of the BMW M5 in dominating fashion.
Thirty-five years later, the BMW M5 remains the benchmark for performance sedans. The bar is being raised once again with the 2020 BMW M5 Edition 35 Jahre — the most powerful and capable M5 ever made. Based on the unyielding BMW M5 Competition, this commemorative edition is limited to just 350 examples, including 35 units destined for the United States. Production is set to begin this autumn with an MSRP of $128,995 (including Destination and Gas Guzzler tax).
Powering the BMW M5 Edition 35 Jahre is the incredible 4.4-liter M TwinPower Turbocharged V8, which generates 617 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque and enables a 0-60 mph spring of just 3.1 seconds.* This works in perfect harmony with the quick-shifting eight-speed M STEPTRONIC automatic transmission with Drivelogic, the superior control provided by standard M xDrive with Active M Differential and the agility and nimbleness offered by a lowered stance and stiffened springs and dampers to make the M5 Edition 35 Jahre a performance sedan without equal.
Every BMW M5 Edition 35 Jahre features distinctive BMW Individual Frozen Dark Grey II metallic paint with pigmentation that gives it a silky matte finish. It sits on exclusive 20-inch M light alloy Y-spoke wheels in Graphite Grey, which contrast beautifully with the high-gloss black-finished M compound brakes. On the inside, the M5 Edition 35 Jahre delivers the refinement and attention to detail expected of the M5 with BMW Individual Merino black leather seating with beige contrast stitching, and unique gold anodized aluminum carbon is used in the center console, instrument panel and door trim for a wholly characteristic aesthetic.
At just 35 examples in the United States, the 2020 BMW M5 Edition 35 Jahre will not last long and absolutely cannot be missed if you are a dyed-in-the-wool BMW M enthusiast. Contact your preferred BMW dealership to learn how you can be one of the lucky few to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the BMW M5 the best way possible.
