To commemorate their 30th year of corporate-endorsed sedan hot-rodding, BMW’s M division released the low production “30 Jahre” M5 for the 2015 model year. The “30 Jahre” M5 features the F10 series Competition package as standard fare, and pairs it with a bevy of unique cosmetic accoutrements and a much more aggressive tune. With only 300 examples produced globally, the performance capabilities of this elusive edition earmark the “30 Jahre” M5 as the archetype of a desirable, functional super sedan.
This anniversary model was, at the time, the most powerful serial-production automobile ever built by BMW M: Its 4.4 liter, twin turbocharged, V-8 engine features a power management map unique to this edition, delivering a staggering 600 hp at 6,250 rpm, and 516 lb ft. of torque. The seven-speed dual clutch transmission delivers lightning quick shifts—lighting up the rear wheels and blasting the 4,387 lb sedan past 60 mph just 3.8 seconds after kickdown. Coupled with the Active M differential, Servotronic steering computer, M Dynamic driving mode, and sports suspension, the “30 Jahre” M5 offers more than just straight-line speed.
One of only 30 delivered to North America, this example is an exceedingly rare Canadian-delivery car complete with metric gauges. As with all examples of this low-production M5, this chassis sports exclusive matte Frozen Dark Silver Metallic paint over a sumptuous, heavily bolstered merino leather and alcantara interior. Black chrome trim and “30 Jahre” badging throughout make no subtle effort to inform passengers and passersby of this sedan’s monstrous performance and pedigree. Gold, M-blazoned carbon ceramic calipers hugging 16-inch cross-vented rotors are tucked snugly inside the staggered 20-in. M601 lightweight alloy wheels.
Optional equipment on for the M5 “30 Jahre” is limited to the Bang & Olufsen surround stereo system, present on this example. Now showing just under 24,000 km (~14,900 miles) this lot is accompanied by owner’s manuals, literature and maintenance booklets, a tire repair kit, and tow hook. Without a doubt the ultimate incarnation of the F10 BMW M5, the “30 Jahre” package’s unique upgrades only serve to enhance an already excellent car.
Please note that an import duty of 2.5% of the purchase price is payable on this lot if the buyer is a resident of the United States.
