BMW has fully revealed the M5 "30 Jahre M5" special edition, following a leak posted earlier this week.

The Bavarian marque is celebrating the M5's 30th anniversary through a limited model that will be built in only 300 examples and all units will wear an Individual Frozen Dark Silver paint with dark chrome accents. It will be visually distinguished by its bi-color 20-inch alloys wrapped around in 265/35 ZR20 front and 295/30 ZR20 rear tires. Other goodies include an interior cabin covered in a combination of Merino leather and Alcantara with special badging and aluminum inserts.

The BMW M5 30 Jahre M5 comes fitted with the Competition Package which is optional on the regular M5 and encompasses -10mm lowered suspension, reprogrammed M Dynamic Mode, stiffer anti-sway bars and on this special M5 the V8 twin-turbo 4.4-liter engine has received a new management system as well as an increased charge pressure.

The engineers were able to lift output by 40 PS (29 kW) and 20 Nm (15 lb-ft) for a grand total of 600 PS (441 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft), all wrapped around in a car that weighs 1,870 kg (4,123 lbs). The extra power helps the M5 hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.9 seconds with the standard dual-clutch seven-speed DCT, thus making it 0.4 seconds quicker than the regular M5. Top speed is limited as standard to 155 mph (250 km/h) but with the optional M Driver's Package the electronic limiter is raised to 190 mph (305 km/h).
