The BMW M5 is as we know it, the ultimate super-saloon money can buy. It's a fast and luxurious track weapon which can out-drag and out-run many performance cars of today. Can it get any better though? Does it need more power? Well, BMW seems to think so as they've just updated the M5 to celebrate its 30-year-anniversary. How have they done this? Well some tinkering in the engine has resulted more power, more torque, and just for balance, some trick badges too!

The BMW M5 30 Jahre's 4.4-litre V8 is boosted to 600hp and a road munching 700Nm torque. This power and torque increase will ultimately result in a reduced 0-62mph time to 3.9-seconds. That's 0.4 seconds faster than the 'standard' M5! This makes the M5 30 Jahre the most powerful M5 ever to have been produced. Too much power? Or has BMW pulled it off like they usually do?

The standard BMW M5 is no slouch when it comes to appearance either, it has lovely creases, sport grilles, exhausts, spoilers and more. The M5 30 Jahre is a step up in aesthetics as it comes in a Frozen Dark Silver (Individual) colour, dark chrome exhaust tail pipes, bi-coloured black and allaluminium polished alloy wheels and 30 Jahre badging on the side and door sills.

Only 300 examples of this M5 will be made, so if you're planning to own a collectible version of the M5, now's your chance.
