On the outside, the M5 Edition 35 Years is made unique thanks to its BMW Individual Frozen Dark Grey II metallic paint. The sedan is also outfitted with 20-inch M light alloy wheels finished in Graphite Grey. There are also gloss black brake calipers and the removal of the M5 badge at the rear.

As for the cabin, it includes a pair of M sports seats finished in BMW Individual Merino black leather with contrasting beige stitching. But what really stands out is the gold anodized aluminum carbon structure that adorns the center console, door trim sections. There’s also a new 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster that’s paired with the 10.3-inch central display that was first seen on the X5 and 8-Series. Rounding up the interior changes are the door sill plates and center console with an engraving that reads ‘M5 Edition 35 Jahre.’

All 350 examples of the limited-edition M5 model bound for the production line come with the Executive Package and M Driver’s Package as standard. The first of these includes soft-close automatic doors, a power rear sunshade and rear side window shades, front ventilated seats, 4-zone automatic climate control, front massaging seats, and other features. As for the M Driver’s Package, it raises the electronic top speed limiter from 155 mph (250 km/h) to 189 mph (304 km/h). There is also a voucher for the M Driver’s School at a BMW Performance Center in either Spartanburg or Thermal included.

Completing the upgrades made to the car include the fitment of an M sport exhaust system and the latest Live Cockpit Professional with the BMW iDrive 7 operating system.

Just 35 units out of the 350 M5 Edition 35 Years are bound for the United States each with a starting price of $128,995 including destination fees and the Gas Guzzler tax.

    Wow… didn’t realize it’s already been 5 years since the 30 jahre edition came out… time sure does fly.

  • Alpina

    The seats look extra supportive for sportier driving and comfortable at the same time. After E39 a first good looking 5er.

  • CBV2020

    Far fom overly impressed by the 5 interior though it is modern and comfortable enough on long drives. I wish BMW would take a page from Porsche on build quality and take their interiors to the next level for top end models.

    “Removal of the M5 badge”? Seems they’re really stretching to make this unique. “So, uhh, let’s give it really big wheels! And it’ll be uh… Black! And uhhh, I dunno, remove the M5 badge for some reason!”
