To celebrate the launch of the BMW 5 Series Facelift scheduled for July 2020, BMW has prepared the special M Sport Edition models. The M Sport Edition will be available for both the Sedan and Touring versions and its production will be limited to a total of 1,000 units. The limited-run series will be available to customers worldwide, right from the start of sales for the refreshed 5 Series generation.

The M Sport Edition will offer the possibility to be paired with all internal combustion, 4- and 6-cylinder engines, as well as with the new 5 Series plug-in hybrid variants.

The new 5 Series M Sport Edition models will boast a unique, hallmark individualization package. The standard exterior paintwork will be the bright and classy BMW Individual Donington Grey metallic, a shade that was previously exclusive to the high-performance M5 only.

Alternatively, the M Sport Edition will also be optionally available in the BMW Individual Tanzanite Blue metallic upon customer request.

Furthermore, the 2021 BMW 5 Series M Sport Edition will also sport the sensational, 20-inch BMW Individual Air Performance Wheels with bi-color finish as standard equipment.

As a measure of further individualization for this special edition 5 Series, the Air Performance Wheels will display the “M Sport Edition” lettering instead of the standard “BMW Individual” on the Y-spoke.

The M Sport Edition for the LCI 5 Series also comprises a host of several additional styling and technical tweaks for the exterior, interior and chassis of the car.

The M Sport suspension system, which allows it to achieve a lower ride height, is standard equipment, as is the full M Sport visual package. The M Sport brake system is depicted by the red-painted calipers proudly wearing the M logo.
