Feature Flick: BMW M5 Gets Matte-Painted M Performance Edition in U.K.
Buyers in the U.K. will soon be privy to a 30-car run of the BMW M5 M Performance Edition, a special model that is previewed by this brief video. The cars receive various aesthetic upgrades, although there are no performance modifications.
Of the 30 cars, ten will be painted in each of three new "Frozen" matte colors: red, white, and blue. (Frozen Red is actually a wrap, rather than actual paint.) The cars also score black 20-inch wheels, a full Black Merino Leather interior, BMW Individual Piano Black trim, a "BMW M Performance Edition ONE OF 30" laser engraving, and M-Sport front seats.
A BMW USA representative told us there are currently no plans to bring such M Performance models here for the U.S.-market BMW M5. However, in the past special BMW M3 models with Frozen paint -- the Frozen Silver and Frozen Black -- have been sold on our shores in extremely limited quantities. Based on that precedent, it's not impossible BMW will eventually offer up a matte-painted M5 like these examples in America.
