Now that the BMW M5 rabbit is out the hat, the world is wondering when we’ll get to see the first models delivered. According to BMW, the sales will begin with a special edition model dubbed First Edition which features a few bespoke features while being limited to just 400 units worldwide.
The new BMW M5 First Edition has an exclusive Frozen Dark Red Metallic paintwork and also includes BMW Individual high-gloss Shadow Line trim with extended features. This means that the kidney grille, the M gills and the four tailpipes of the sports exhaust all come in high-gloss black. The cars will also be fitted as standard with 20-inch seven-double-spoke light alloy wheels in black while the interior will get a very individual flavor to go with it.
The Piano Finish Black applications are complemented by a plaque on the center console indicating the car’s production number (“M5 First Edition 1/400”) and pointing to the exclusivity of this BMW M5. The M5 First Edition comes as standard with high-quality M multifunction seats. It is also available with full leather upholstery in Smoke White with red contrast stitching. Of course, if you so please, you can also configure the cars according to your needs on top of everything we listed here coming as standard.
There will also be a price to pay though. These initial models will ask a premium of €19,500 over the asking price of a BMW M5 which, at the moment, is claimed to start at €117,900. That means, one of these First Edition babies will cost at least €137,400. Deliveries of the BMW M5 First Edition will begin in spring 2018 and production will continue until June 2018 at the latest.
