Spotted – BMW M5 Jahre M5 Edition in Belgium image

A rare example of the BMW M5 Jahre M5 Edition has been spotted recently in Belgium quietly sitting around in a parking lot.

The BMW M5 Jahre M5 Edition is being placed into the spotlights once again, despite being completely sold out a long time ago. The vehicle pictured below has been actually spotted out in Belgium and its photographer noticed the main differences between it and a regular M5, capturing it on camera. The BMW M5 Jahre M5 Edition has been created in just 300 units, 30 of them being aimed to the United States. The last example of the car has been auctioned by Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale, Arizona, and its new owner has paid no less than 700,000 USD for it.

Proceeds have benefit the BMW Club of America Foundation and the winning bidder was Rick Hendrik, known from NASCAR, who is owning a BMW dealership in Charleston, South Carolina. The BMW M5 Jahre M5 Edition is getting the Individual Frozen Dark Silver finish and dark chrome accents, along with an upgraded 4.4 liter V8 engine which is capable of producing a total output of 600 HP (441 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque. From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), the model needs just 3.9 seconds. Top speed stands at 305 km/h (190 mph), with the M Driver’s Package, which was actually offered as an option.
