BMW released official details and pictures of the hotly anticipated 30th Anniversary Edition M5, confirming that it is the most powerful production car they’ve ever built. The BMW M5 30th Anniversary Edition, or “30 Jahre M5” as they call it, is limited to 300 units worldwide with only 30 units going to the U.S.

As expected, the BMW M5 30th Anniversary Edition comes with a tweaked version of the 4.4 liter BMW M TwinPower Turbo V8 engine fitted with Competition Package. It gains an additional 25 horsepower over the standard M5, for a total of 600 horsepower, and can achieve a 0 to 60 mph time of 3.7 seconds.

This special M5 also boasts an improved M-specific Servotronic function as well as an improved M Dynamic mode, unlocking full potential of the engine and chassis for increased power and traction. What’s more, a new control module enables the Active M Differential to react quicker than before, which improves traction when exiting corners.

BMW M5 30th Anniversary comes exclusively with a Frozen Dark Silver Metallic exterior with Black Chrome “30 Jahre M5” badges and 20 inch, bi-color M light-alloy wheels. The special edition badge is found on the kidney grill surrounds, the front fenders, door handles and twin dual exhaust pipes, while a 1/300 identification number adorns the interior.

Speaking of the interior, the seats are covered with black Alcantara/Leather combo, complete with embroidered “30 Jahre M5” badges. The center console and the door panels are also covered in black Alcantara, while the headliner features Alcantara Anthracite.

Prices for the BMW M5 30th Anniversary Edition start from $138,275, and it includes a free track-day event and M driving school at The Thermal Club in Palm Springs, CA.
