BMW M5 Editions: Pure, Nighthawk and White Shadow

BMW M5 Editions BMW Group Australia announces the introduction of 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*, 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 with BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology.

The 4.4 litre engine drives the sedan from 0-100km/h in just 4.3 seconds, while recording a fuel economy figure below 10 litres per 100 kilometres.

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 BMW M5 Pure includes 20-inch M Double spoke alloy wheels, frozen paintwork, sports seats, tyre pressure monitor, ConnectedDrive Freedom and Internet as standard kit, while a range of BMW Individual paint colours are available at no cost.

The BMW M5 Nighthawk and White Shadow editions include BMW’s acclaimed Competition Package as standard specification.  Along with the increased power, the Package includes a modified exhaust system and a lowered suspension.  In addition, the characteristics of the Dynamic Damper Control system have been adapted to the increased dynamics and the M Dynamic Mode settings have been further defined.  The steering is even more direct and the steering ratio has been revised by 10 per cent.

In addition to the Competition Package, a combination of BMW Individual content, BMW M Performance features, trademark frozen or metallic paintwork in black or white and additional specifications elevate the BMW M5 Nighthawk and White Shadow.

Key features include 20-inch M Double spoke alloy wheels in black, Bang and Olufsen high-end surround sound system, tyre pressure monitor, floor mats with contrast binding, Carbon Fibre interior trim, gear knob and exterior mirror caps.
