BMW M5 gets ready to celebrate its 30th birthday

The BMW M5 is about to turn 30, after debuting at the 1985 Geneva Motor Show. Five generations have since been launched. All of them are based on the BMW 5 Series of the time featuring high-performance components and a bespoke engine. BMW M is planning a surprise in the coming months, which is expected to be the announcement of a special edition of some kind. In the meantime the company has released this video to help get the party started.
