The last example of the BMW M5 30 Jahre M5 special edition will be auctioned on the 15th of January, by Barrett-Jackson.

In case you have your eyes set on the impressive BMW M5 30 Jahre M5, you should check out how much you can spend because the last example of the model will be auctioned later on this week by Barrett-Jackson, in Scottsdale, Arizona. The vehicle in question has been created to celebrate its 30th anniversary and only 300 units have been produced, with 30 of them being aimed towards the North American shores.

Barrett-Jackson says that this will be a charity auction with all proceeds to benefit the BMW Club of America Foundation and the lucky winning bidder with be participating in the M Driving School. As you probably know by now, the BMW M5 30 Jahre M5 is taking its power from an upgraded 4.4 liter twin turbo V8 engine, which is capable of producing a total output of 600 HP (441 kW) and it has a peak torque of 700 Nm (516 lb-ft).

The unit is connected to a 7-pseed dual clutch transmission, which is sending power to the rear wheels and it is allowing the model to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.9 seconds, making it 0.4 seconds faster than the standard one. The top speed has been electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph), but this can be raised with the optional M Driver’s Package, to 305 km/h (190 mph).
