BMW is Only Making 50 M5 Pure Metal Silver Limited Editions and They’re Only for the US
The M5 is already a special BMW. The 2016 M5 Pure Metal Silver Limited Edition is even more special.
It starts under the hood. The M5’s twin-turbo V8 has been tuned to unleash 600 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. Channeled through the M5’s dual-clutch gearbox and 20-inch wheels, that output translates to a 0-60 mph time of 3.9 seconds.
The interior is trimmed with full leather, contrast stitching, and aluminum trim. Standard equipment includes M multifunctional front seats, a head-up display, navigation, keyless entry, BMW Driving Assistant, and Advanced Real-Time Traffic Information. A Pure Metal Silver M5 1/50 badge separates it from the cockpits of other M5s.
The exterior of the M5 Pure Metal Silver Limited Edition, coated in BMW Individual’s exclusive Pure Metal Silver, is the most special part about it, though. According to BMW, “Hundreds of thousands of ultra thin aluminum flakes guarantee a uniform and gleaming surface. Painting a vehicle in this color is extremly delicate and requires a lot of detailed hand work. The vehicle is completely removed from the regular production processes and the surface of the car is checked three times until the surface is 100 percent perfect.”
BMW is only making 50 of these unique M5s for the US market. They’ll arrive in dealerships (provided they’re not already sold out) in August; prices start at $130,900*.
*Price excludes $995 destination and handling charge.
