As the twin-turbo V8 says hello in 2011, Nowack Motorsports has prepared a special edition BMW M5 as a farewell celebration for the naturally aspirated V10 model. Called the BMW M5 Hans Nowack Edition, this special edition is a tribute from Oliver Nowack to his father Hans, creator of world famed race and road engines and one of the inventors of what is nowadays called ECU-Tuning.
The car is equipped with two Nowack Motorsports bespoke intake air collectors and, of course, some good ol’ Nowack ECU. This propels the Nowack Motors N635S 5.8 Hans Nowack Edition found in the BMW from 507 hp to an amazing 718 hp.
We wish we could say that this engine was all the BMW M5 needs, but we could go for a nice, new little spoiler here and some side skirts there. Maybe something along the lines of the BMW X6 M that Nowack took a crack at back in March? Of course, if they are not going to add any other fancy schmancy components, any tuning firms out there ready to take a bite at this edition?
Press release after the jump.
