Soon to be released will the same exact setup but in Frozen Alpine White and will be dubbed the "Stormshadow" edition.

WHY THE F#%* are other countries always getting special edition cars? Does the world really hate Americans that much?

I like the contrast of the blacked out exterior over the Orange interior. Does anyone on this forum have Black on Orange? I can't recall seeing one.

It would be easy to make this build with a regular order with the options you really want....

Because Americans aren't stupid enough to pay $60k for a 1-of-10 plastic name badge?

only thing I want that isnt readily available is the dark chrome in the door handles... why cant shadowline trim be applied to all the trim?

In a nutshell.

Yes.







Only kidding.

I think the issue is that American prices are low and everyone leases their cars and residual values and resale are poor in comparison. These are not good conditions to launch premium limited edition models.

What does a normal M5 costs in Japan?

LOL...I see you're point. However I'm certain that some market research would yield data to support the contrary. There are some real die hard BMW lovers out there with money and would purchase these special editions for collecting purposes or just because they want it. They will not have a problem paying a high price for it either. Just my opinion.
