BMW launches M5 Nighthawk Special Edition in Japan

BMW has launched the M5 Nighthawk special edition specifically for the Japan market. Only 10 units will be built.

On the outside, the Nighthawk is painted in 'Frozen Black'. The 20-inch alloy wheels, grille, door handles, mirror caps and exhaust tips are finished in dark chrome. I believe this is a car that The Dark Knight (Batman) would love to drive.

The leather seats and door panels and dashboard are tastefully finished with a bright Sakiru orange shade. One can also find the usual M Performance carbon trimmings in the cabin.

The M5 Nighthawk is equipped with the Competition Package which boosts the output of the 4.4-litre bi-turbo V8 from 552bhp to 567bhp. Mated to a seven-speed M dual-clutch transmission, the high-performance sedan storms from standstill to 100km/h in a mere 4.2 seconds. The package also includes new coil springs, damper calibrations and anti-sway bars. These adjustments resulted in lowering of the car by about 10 millimetres, which lowers the center of gravity and body roll.

The new M5 special edition model is priced at 18,200,000 Yen (S$229,283) in Japan.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
