BMW saluted the 30th anniversary of its groundbreaking M5 sports sedan with a powerful special edition that reaffirmed the German automaker’s commitment to refined performance. Only 29 examples of the 300 units produced were offered to the American public, and those were chosen exclusively through a social media lottery. Purchasers were invited to a private BMW driving school to learn the extraordinary capabilities of this special car.

This highly tuned variant produced 32 hp more than BMW’s standard M5, and 17 hp over a similarly equipped Competition Package M5. Further refinements were made to the anniversary car’s M-Dynamic mode and M-specific Servotronic feature. According to BMW, the improvements rocketed the car from 0–60 mph in 3.7 seconds. These special edition cars came finished in the BMW Individual shade of Frozen Dark Silver Metallic and are visually distinguished by “30 Jahre M5” exterior badging and sill plates. Its 20" alloy wheels, tailpipes, side vents, and iconic kidney grille are offset in striking black chrome.

More than just a commemorative edition, the “30 Jahre M5” is a high-performance bookend to three decades of BMW’s legendary M5 series. Presented in outstanding condition, and optioned with night vision, the M5 has been recently serviced and is complete with pre-delivery tags, accessories, and window sticker. Showing just 1,815 miles at the time of cataloguing, this example requires no lottery to own – and is one of the most exclusive BMWs of its era.
