Good news, if you happen to own a new BMW M5 First Edition, because the value of your car just went up, after one out of the 400 made was totaled in a mysterious accident.
The images shared on social media by HartVoorAutos show a Frozen Dark Red Metallic-finished example with a bashed-up face. The damages are significant and appear to have affected the front structure of the car, in addition to the mechanicals and, sadly, the twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine, too.
Nothing is known about the crash, but the publication’s website reveals yet another BMW M5 F90, with significant damages on its left side. Now, putting one and one together means assuming that the red car T-boned the black one, but we’re not sure if the two are connected to each other, as the latter appears to be somewhere in a car park, probably waiting to be assessed by the insurance agency.
Before moving on to the three pictures posted in the gallery below, we will remind you that the F90 generation was presented last year. It has 600PS (592hp / 441kW) and 750Nm (553lb-ft) of torque to play with, channeled to a specially-tuned xDrive all-wheel drive system through an eight-speed automatic transmission. Sprinting from rest to 100km/h (0-62mph) takes 3.4 seconds and top speed is electronically capped at 250km/h (155mph).
The First Edition adds black 20-inch lightweight alloy rims, glossy black accents and interior trimmings bringing a €19,500 ($23,364) premium over the €117,900 ($141,261) starting price of the car in Germany. Only 400 units of the BMW M5 First Edition were made and deliveries commenced this spring.
