In this 50 units edition, only available for the U.S. market, power is more than ample with 600 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque sent to the rear wheels through a dual-clutch transmission. That’s 40 more horses and 16 pound-feet more torque than the standard M5’s output from the 4.4 liter twin turbo V8.
BMW says the extra power comes from increased boost pressure, as well as some other unlisted modifications.
BMW claims a 0-100 kph sprint of just 3.9 seconds.
The Competition Package comes standard on this limited edition, but now also includes 20-inch alloy wheels.
The 2016 BMW M5 Pure Metal Silver Limited Edition starts from $131,895.
