The German-based automaker BMW has recently launched the 35-Year Limited Edition of the 2020 BMW M5 in North America. It was entirely based on the BMW M5 Competition model but gets some special touches from German engineers and claimed to offer a very impressive performance from under its hood. Previously the German manufacturer had also launched the BMW M5 “30 Jahre Edition” back in 2014 in order to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the M5 model, which is very well known to most BMW fans.
The 2020 BMW M5 “35-Year Edition” has offered several significant changes with an exclusive touch on its exterior design, including the Frozen Dark Grey II metallic paint color combined with pigments in order to produce a matte silk look. The latest high-performance four-door sedan is equipped with a 20-inch M light alloy-wheels with Y-spoke design patterns in Graphite Grey, and high-gloss black M brake calipers that make it different from standard blue calipers.
Inside the cabin, the interior now has a new M Sport seats with high-quality material made from Merino black full-leather and beige stitching. Another striking changes is seen in the center console, instrument panel and door trim, which has now adopted carbon fiber material with gold anodized aluminum. There are also sill-plates with “35 Jahre M5 Edition” in the cabin. The new M5 BMW 35-Year Edition is now available in the standard Executive and M Driver’s Packages, plus it’s also equipped with a new Live Cockpit Professional behind the steering wheel.
Under the hood, the 2020 BMW M5 “Edition 35 Years” is still powered by a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine that is claimed to cranks out up to 600 horsepower at 5,700 – 6,600 rpm and 553 lb-ft of torque at 1,800 – 5,700 rpm. This is the same turbocharged V8 powertrain that you can find on the current M5 sedan, which is claimed to be able to sprint from 0-60 mph in just 3.1 seconds with a top speed reaching 189 mph. As the BMW’s fastest M performance car to date, the sixth-generation 2020 BMW M5 is equipped with an xDrive all-wheel-drive system paired to a new 8-speed automatic gearbox in order to transfer power to all four wheels.
Pricing and Release Date
There’s no announcement for release date, but the 2020 BMW M5 “35-Year Edition” is expected to reach U.S. showrooms at some point this year or no later than this fall. While the new M5 “Edition 35 Years” model will hit the dealerships at a price of $128,995, including destination charges and taxes. If so, the official price tags for the 35-Years Limited Edition M5 model is definitely $17,000 more expensive than the current M5 Competition. Unfortunately, BMW will only send a total of 35 units of The All-New M5 “Edition 35 Years” to the United States. The German car manufacturers have confirmed that they only produce a total of 350 units of the M5 Edition 35 Years for the global market, including for the U.S. and European markets.
