BMW Australia is introducing three new BMW M5 Edition models to its stable of BMW M vehicles.
From the raw, track-inspired BMW M5 Pure to the striking, limited edition BMW M5 Nighthawk and White Shadow, the latest additions to BMW’s M range promise to deliver performance, luxury and the unmistakeable power of the Bavarian marque’s V8 plant.
Available from $185,000 plus on roads, the BMW M5 Pure distils the iconic nameplate to its very essence, dispensing with peripheral features to focus on the essentials, celebrating the 412kW, 680Nm, high-revving V8 engine. The 4.4 litre engine drives the sedan from 0-100km/h in just 4.3 seconds.
With production limited to just 10 units each, the BMW M5 Nighthawk and White Shadow represent the ultimate in BMW performance, luxury and exclusivity, starting from $235,930*.
Featuring the acclaimed Competition Package, boosting power output to 423kW and shaving a tenth of a second from its 0-100km/h acceleration time, the BMW M5 Nighthawk and White Shadow boast an impressive equipment list.
BMW Group Australia Head of Product and Market Planning, Shawn Ticehurst, expressed his excitement at introducing a new chapter in the story of the iconic BMW M5 in Australia.
“Power, heritage and high-performance are the common threads binding our BMW M5 Editions,” Ticehurst said.
“The unique identity of each model provides a clear point of difference. The Pure introduces the BMW M5 to a new audience and offers unadulterated performance, while the Nighthawk and White Shadow exude exclusivity and substance.
“Over three decades, the BMW M5 has thrilled and excited motorists around the world, a legacy which will continue with these BMW M5 Editions.”

The steering is even more direct and the steering ratio has been revised by 10 per cent.
