The '50 Jahre M Edition' of the 5 Series sedan commemorates 50 years of the brand's 'M Performance' division. The limited-run 5 Series offers better looks and creature comforts in comparison to the standard model. Only 10 units are up for grabs, making it an exclusive proposition. This one is for BMW connoisseurs who don't mind spending extra bucks for the beauty.
The sedan has 18-inch M alloy wheels and laser headlights
The BMW 5 Series 50 Jahre M Edition flaunts a lengthy and muscular hood, laser headlights with L-shaped DRLs, a black kidney grille, revised bumpers, and a wide air dam. On the sides, the sedan is flanked by black B-pillars, ORVMs, 18-inch M alloy wheels, and red-colored brake calipers. Wrap-around LED taillights, dual exhaust tips, and a shark-fin antenna grace the rear end.
It is offered with a 2.0-liter, turbo-petrol engine
The special-edition 5 Series draws power from a 2.0-liter, inline-four, twin-turbocharged petrol engine that generates a power of 248hp and a peak torque of 350Nm. The mill is mated to an 8-speed Steptronic Sport automatic gearbox. The sedan completes the 0-100km/h sprint in 6.1 seconds.
It features Harman Kardon sound system and four-zone climate control
