BMW will celebrate the 35th anniversary of its M5 super saloon with a limited modification of the 616 hp M5 Competition.
The 35-year-old BMW M5 Edition features the same tuned version of the 4.4-litre V8 twin-turbocharged engine as the M5 Competition, which produces 553 lb of torque and can reach 0-62 mph in 3.3 seconds on its way to a limited top speed of 155 mph.
The four-wheel-drive model also includes the M5 Competitions lowered, rigid suspension, along with spherically-jointed rear suspension brackets and improved front stabilizer bars.
The 350 copies of the M5 Edition 35 Years to be produced feature a number of design changes, including a new metallic grey paint and new 20-inch alloy wheels. Brake calipers are finished in glossy black, while optional carbon M ceramic brakes are available in a gold finish.
The interior features a series of finishes with a gold anodized carbon structure on the door molding, instrument panel and center console. Door sills and cup holder lids are engraved with M5 Edition 35.
The M5 35 edition will go on sale in July. No price details have been revealed, but it is likely to be above £96,205 for the M5 competition.
The first M5, which included a six-cylinder inline engine from the centre-engine M1 supersport, was launched at the end of 1984.
