Social media campaigns are attracting a lot of interest online and show the car’s slick exterior and beautiful design features.
The e anniversary model “30 Jahre M5″ will be the most powerful serial production automobile to be built by BMW with its 600 bhp (441 kW) and a maximum torque of 700 Nm. It accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds. The special model has a combined fuel consumption: 9.9 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 231 g/km and features the Competition Package with modified suspension settings with a tighter spring/damper set-up. There is a specific control set-up for the Active M Differential of the rear axle differential to improve traction.
