Unveiling BMW’s M5 Evolution: 30 Jahre and Beyond

BMW’s M5 G90 is on the horizon, but let’s revisit a pivotal moment—the limited “30 Jahre Edition.” Launched in 2014, this exclusive model, limited to 300 units worldwide, marked three decades of M5 excellence.

The “30 Jahre Edition” showcased peak BMW M power—its twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 churned out an impressive 591 horsepower and 515 pound-feet of torque. A decade later, it still sprints from 0 to 62 mph in just 3.9 seconds, thanks to the Competition Package’s custom tuning.

This matte Frozen Dark Silver gem from BMW UK’s historic press car fleet, originally priced at £91,890, remains a meticulously maintained symbol of BMW’s commitment. The final unit at auction fetched $700,000, benefiting causes like the Tire Rack Teen Street Survival Program and BMW CCA Foundation.

The 2024 M5 generation promises more—combining a V8 with an electric motor exceeding 700 horsepower. Beyond that, the M5 Touring (G99) might make a U.S. return in 2025—a thrilling prospect for enthusiasts and collectors anticipating the next chapter in BMW’s high-performance legacy.
