BMW M5 Nighthawk limited edition announced for Japan

Sometimes the creative boffins at car companies come up with the perfect names for their cars don’t they? The new BMW M5 Nighthawk limited edition is a prime example.

2013 BMW M5 Nighthawk Special Edition Frozen Black

Designed for the Japanese market, BMW M has created a very unique and very black limited edition version of the epic BMW M5. It features an obvious black colour scheme, with Frozen Black body panels and 20-inch alloy wheels.

To extend the dark sinister look, the front grilles are surrounded in bespoke shadow chrome trimmings, with matching the door handles, side mirrors, side vents, and exhaust tips.

You might be thinking the M5 Nighthawk would have to come with some ridiculously powerful engine under the bonnet to suit the devilish theme going here. And you’d be right. It comes with the regular 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 with the recently announced Competition Package.

Power is boosted from 412kW to 423kW, while torque remains unchanged at 680Nm. It’s lethal enough to send the sports luxury 5 Series off from 0-100km/h in just 4.2 seconds.

Just 10 examples of these seriously stealthy machines will hit the market. Each come with a Sakiru orange leather upholstery with the M Performance carbon trim line. Very nice.
