French magazine OptionAuto takes the BMW M5 “30 Jahre M5” from 0 to 300 km/h, and it does this seamlessly. Just looking at that needle moving through the gears just makes you wanna jump on the Autobahn and try the same. Even more awesome is seeing the needle at 270 km/h while in fifth gear. Talk about the capabilities of this amazing 4.4 liter V8 engine.
The BMW M5 “30 Jahre M5” came earlier this year to celebrate 30 years since the first BMW M5 model came to market.
