Woodcliff Lake, N.J. – July 21, 2016 ... The BMW M Division has developed the exclusive, 50 units produced for the US only, BMW M5 Pure Metal Silver Limited Edition. The high performance business sedan, featuring the unique paint color Pure Metal Silver has an increased power output of 600 hp and maximum torque of 516 lb-ft.The BMW M5 Pure Metal Silver Limited Edition ranks among the most powerful automobiles in the model history of the BMW brand. This model comes as standard with an M dual clutch transmission featuring Drivelogic enabling sprints from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds. The 2016 BMW M5 Pure Metal Silver Limited Edition is available from $130,900 plus $995 Destination and Handling starting August 2016.

M Power: Performance and Handling.
At the heart of the BMW M5 Pure Metal Silver Limited Edition,sits a 4.4 liter, high reving V8 BMW M TwinPower Turbo engine. An increase in boost pressure and targeted modifications to the engine raises the car’s performance vs. the production model by 40 hp to 600 hp. At the same time, maximum torque has increased by 16 lb-ft.

On the BMW M5 Pure Metal Silver Limited Edition, the standard Competiton Package has been enhanced to include 20-inch forged wheels amplifying the perfectly executed balance between performance output and handling. The Competition Package includes a lowering of the vehicle by 0.4 inches and a firmer setup of the spring damper systems and stabilizers. In combination, the specific control setting for the Active M differential fitted as standard on all BMW M5 models ensures ideal traction. The steering system with an M specific Servotronic function comes with a more direct control map, providing the driver with precise response and enhancing the car’s agility when turning into corners. In addition, the M Dynamic Mode of the stability control system DSC (Dynamic Stability Control) has been specifically aligned to sporty handling characteristics unique to this special edition model. Typical M driving dynamics guarantee ideal handling and performance on the racetrack as well as in everyday traffic. Standard M Carbon Ceramic Brakes provide additional stopping power.

M Driver’s Package.
The standard M Driver’s Package includes a unique 1-day high performance driving school which has been tailored to driving BMW M vehicles through various exercises on a racetrack to explore the limits of the vehicle in a controlled environment. The driving school is available at the BMW Performance Center East (South Carolina) or West (California). Additionally, the M Driver’s Package increases the vehicle’s top speed from 155 mph to 190 mph.

Pure Metal Silver: A unique BMW Individual Paint.
The BMW M5 Pure Metal Silver Limited Edition sporty character comes to light even when the engine is not roaring. An exclusive body color Pure Metal Silver, consistent of a unique BMW Individual paint layerring process embelishes this limited edition. Due to the unique application process, creating a special light dark effect, Pure Metal Silver is BMW Individuals most exclusive paint job available. It’s silk skin and high metal brillance reflect light more intesly than any other color. Responsible for this unique metal gleam is the combination of a special effect pigment with a water base paint system. 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. After the paint preparation the chassis is carefully examined where any uneven elements are smoothened by hand. To achieve the Pure Metal Silver look the chassis needs a glossy and smooth surface utilizing a Glacier Silver Metal base coat. One more surface check is completed prior to the application of the final coating. After cleaning the vehcile with compressed air, Pure Metal Silver is applied. The finishing specialist polishes and examines the vehicle one last time by hand before the chassis leaves Plant Dingolfing’s paint shop.The combination of perfect craftsmanship and computer controlled manufacturing guarantees the high quality and exclusive look of the limited edition BMW M5 Pure Metal Silver.
The 20-inch M light alloy wheels with performance tires (265/35 R20 at the front, 295/30 R20 at the rear) highlight the car’s outstanding handling characteristics. An M Performance Exhaust with carbon bezel as well as the black M Performance Kidney grill enhance the sporty appeal of this unique edition.

The character of a Limited Edition: The interior.
The interior features full leather Merino with contrast stiching and aluminum interior trim embelished with the Pure Metal Silver M5 1/50 bage highlighting the unique and limited character of this special edition. Inside the BMW M5 Pure Metal Silver Limited Edition both driver and passenger sit in M multifunctional seats, the comprehensive electric adjustment options guarantee a perfect balance between comfort and sporty lateral support.

Premium standard equipment includes: BMW Head-Up Display, BMW Driving Assistant, Advanced Real-Time Traffic Information, Navigation System, Comfort Access Keyless Entry and Adaptive Full LED Lights amongst others.

This will be no different than the M6 Competition Edition. It will not sell. We have had ours for the past 6 months.

I would take Base M5 + Competition Package + Individual color instead of this "limited edition". A lot cheaper and you get individual color of your choice.

You wouldn't get the 600HP, though.

Unfortunately, a car that sells doesn't hang around for six months. There's nothing special about it. Our M6 CE is an M6....with M Performance parts and a modest bump with a price tag of $150,000. You have options in that price range.

Why do you think that is that the M6 comp doesn't sell well?

Lol, I just saw two in Houston, one in each of two dealers. Thought it was the same car but it wasn't. Who wants a $175k M6?

Because it's massively overpriced. And the ones I saw were in Austin Yellow.

At least now it has the M driver's option, don't think it was available for the US market in the past for the F10 M5? Not that I encourage people to drive over 150mph.....

Those must be some really special wheels to be able to fit 20 inch tires on 19 inch rims.

Because they are sitting on dealer lots. We have had one sitting on our lot for 5-6 months now and is overpriced.

No wonder BMW AG told me they don't offer this color last year when I ordered my M5, guess they were reserving it.....

Seems like a marketing ploy to keep production going until the new version is released.
