The limited edition BMW M5 "30 Jahre M5" is being showcased in Abu Dhabi.

Revealed several months ago to celebrate the M5's 30th anniversary, the special edition mid-size sedan will be built in a limited series of 300 units and one of them is available at a BMW dealership in Abu Dhabi. This is actually the most powerful production BMW ever as its packs 600 HP (441 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) from an uprated twin-turbo V8 4.4-liter engine. By "most powerful" we are referring to the horsepower figure as the X5 M & X6 M duo has a 750 Nm (553 lb-ft) torque.

Getting back to the special M5, it wears an Individual Frozen Dark Silver paint and rides on unique bi-color 20-inch wheels while on the inside it gets Merino leather & Alcantara upholstery as well as aluminum inserts and the compulsory badging.

Despite weighing a hefty 1,870 kg (4,123 lbs), the special M5 runs the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in as little as 3.9 seconds and can reach a maximum speed of 190 mph (305 km/h) when configured with the optional M Driver's Package.
