The 50 Jahre M Edition Of The 5 Series Launched In India

It’s based on the 530i M Sport.

After launching the 50 Jahre M Edition of the 3 Series and the 6 Series last month, BMW India has now introduced a third option. This time around, the 5 Series is in the mix. More specifically, the 530i M Sport. So the carmaker has taken that variant and tarted it up to create the 50 Jahre M Edition. And for the makeover, BMW India is demanding an additional INR 3 lakh over the 530i M Sport’s base price. In other words, the 5 Series 50 Jahre M Edition costs INR 67.50 lakh.

Like the previously introduced celebratory versions, the latest one is a limited-run offering. And what does it have over the donor variant? On the outside, the 50 Jahre M Edition replaces chrome and aluminium panels with high-gloss black inserts on the kidney grille, air inlets, tailpipe finishers, and window surrounds. Also, there’s the 50 Jahre M Edition-branded badge and door projectors. BMW has even equipped the special edition with LaserLight technology and black 18-inch alloys.

Indoors, the only upholstery option is Cognac with black accents and contrasting stitching. Coupled with that theme are trim finishers in gloss black. And those Galvanic finishers on controls have been ditched in favour of ones in black ceramic.

Under the bonnet is a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine that produces 248bhp/350Nm. That’s mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission that feeds the oomph to the rear wheels. BMW claims a 0-100kmph sprint time of 6.1 seconds and a top speed of 250kmph.

The 5 Series is handsomely equipped with creature comforts as well. The list includes 4-zone automatic climate control, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a 464-watt, 16-speaker Harman Kardon sound system. Features like wireless mobile charging, rain-sensing wipers, auto headlamps, ambient lighting, an electric sunroof and powered front seats are also included.

Considering that the 50 Jahre M Edition won’t be around for long, I would buy it over the regular variants. The other options I’d look at include the Jaguar XF, Volvo S90, Audi A6 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
