Known as the Competition Edition in Europe, the new M5 Pure Metal Silver Limited Edition puts a highly complex, multi-layer paint on the high-performance sedan. Using a special application process, the paint combines a special effect pigment, a water-based paint system, and hundreds of thousands of aluminum flakes to give it a shine like no other.

The special treatment doesn't stop with the exclusive paint job, the car gets a big engine upgrade that now pushes 600-hp, a 0-60 time of 3.9 seconds, and a top speed of 190 mph. The car will be available this August and is exclusive to the US in a 50 unit run.
