(30 years of the M5) is based on the performance version recently introduced by the M5 Competition Pack and will have a limited production of 300 units.

To celebrate 30 years of the M5, BMW M has equipped the special edition with a slightly modified version of the engine twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 petrol. The result was a 40hp increase in power, for a total of 600hp, and 700Nm of torque. According to Albert Biermann, BMW M's boss, these improvements were made possible by "tweaking the engine management of the increased pressure of the turbo turbocharger."

The transmission of power to the rear wheels is via a modified dual clutch seven-speed automatic transmission of the standard M5. BMW M achieved the fastest production version ever of the M5. According to BMW, the M5 '30 Jahre M5' can sprint to 100km/h in just 3.9 seconds and reach a limited top speed of 305km/h, with the optional M Driver package.

Regarding fuel consumption and emissions, M5 '30 Jahre M5' consumes 9.9l/100km and produces on average 231g/km CO2.

On the basis of the new M5 '30 Jahre M5' is a chassis with the same modifications incorporated into the M5 Competition Pack, with firmer springs and dampers, a reduction of 10 mm of ground clearance and 20-inch rims with 265/40 front and 295/40 rear tires.

The M5 30 Jahre can be distinguished from the standard M5 by the matte silver color metal of the bodywork, the darkened chrome trim on the borders of the grid, on the door handle inserts and exhausts and also '30 Jahre' badges.
