Under the hood of the car will sit the TwinPower turbo V8 engine that usually powers the Competition since its launch in 2018. Paired to a 8-speed automatic transmission the car develops the same amount of power: 625 hp and 750 Nm of torque.
Even if the power levels are the same, the acceleration performance is a tad better for the Edition 35: the car reaches 62 mph in 3.3 seconds, as opposed to 3.4 on the Competition.
Visually, the special edition will stand out of the crowd thanks to a series of improvements. The car comes in Frozen Dark Grey metallic paint with special pigmentation that gives it a matte silk surface, 20-inch M light alloy wheels in Y spoke design and high-gloss black brake calipers.
On the inside there’s Merino full leather trim in black with beige contrast seams, trim finishers in aluminum carbon, and M5 Edition 35 Jahre inscriptions on the cupholder cover and door sill finishers.
BMW says the special run of the M5 will comprise only 350 units that will be made available worldwide. Pricing for the model has not been announced.
