A U.S.-spec BMW M5 “30 Jahre M5” limited edition has been listed on eBay for a staggering “buy it now” price of 200,000 USD.
With production capped at only 300 units, it’s no wonder the BMW M5 “30 Jahre M5” is a highly desirable model and although 30 cars are heading to United States only 29 will go to customers as BMW North America will keep the last example. All U.S.-spec cars were sold on May 21 and now one of the owners wants to make a quick profit by asking 200,000 USD for a model which was priced at 138,275 USD.
Obviously, the car hasn't been delivered yet so anyone who is willing to purchase the vehicle will have to wait for 4-6 months. The eBay user says those who are interested will have to make a 50 percent deposit in an attorney escrow account while the rest of the sum will be paid upon delivery. The M5 30 Jahre M5 in question is actually the first US-spec car and at the moment of writing one person made an offer. Chances are the final price tag will be well below the 200,000 USD mark.
As a reminder, this special edition celebrates the 30th anniversary of the M5 and comes with an uprated 4.4-liter V8 twin-turbo engine developing 600 PS (441 kW) and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) of torque. It's enough for a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h) or 190 mph (305 km/h) with the optional M Driver's Package which frankly should have been standard equipment since this was conceived to be an M5 with all the possible bells and whistles.
