BMW is releasing a 2016 M5 Pure Metal Silver Limited Edition, a 50-car special edition exclusive to the USA market.
Horse power is bumped up on the twin-turbo 4.4L V8 to 600hp from 560hp on this shiny bad boy, and 0-60 mph is now under 4 secs @ 3.9 instead of a respectable 4.2 for the normal M5. Top speed also increases to 190 mph from 155mph with the standard M Driver’s Package which also includes the complimentary 1-day BMW M Driving School Experience, an exhilarating day I experienced many years ago.
The distinctive trait of this Bimmer is the paint job which gives this M5 a special light dark effect. A unique application process gives it what BMW calls a “silk skin and high metal brilliance” which is supposed to reflect light at a higher intensity than any other color. I guess a fully chromed out M5 would have been a tad overboard eh?
Price starts at $130,900 and deliveries in August 2016. Are you brave enough to drive this car? Or yet, will anyone dare to pass you in the left lane without getting blinded by the metal silver paint?
