To celebrate 35 years of the BMW M5 - one of the fastest four-door sedans on the road -BMW has created the 'M5 Edition 35 Years.'

Available in one shade only - a matte, 'Frozen Dark Grey II' - the wheels on this special M5 are also grey, while the kidney grilles, brake callipers and tailpipes are gloss black.

Interestingly, you'll find that no M5 badge has been slapped on the back - it's actually been officially de-badged. Within, passengers will experience a gold anodized aluminium grained to look like carbon fibre, alongside a full leather interior with stitching to match the shiny trim. The centre console is engraved with "M5 Edition 35 Jahre" (we assume you can guess what that means).

The baseline for this unique creation is the M5 Competition, which will bang out a substantial 617-horsepower from the 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8 matched with an eight-speed automatic and much-needed all-wheel-drive system. The M5 Edition 35 Years also comes standard with the M Driver's Package, which lifts the car's top speed to a staggering 304 km/h. You'll also cop the M5's otherwise-optional Executive Package, which essentially just keeps you safe with a bunch of cool tech.

Limited to just 350 examples worldwide, we're still unsure as to how many will come to Australia. With the standard M5 Competition clocking in at AU$229,900 before on-roads, you can likely expect a figure well north of $300k.
