BMW is at it again with its . The latest iteration is the 2016 BMW M5 Pure Metal Silver Limited Edition, which will be limited to just 50 units in the U.S. Like the name suggests, the special receives an exclusive Pure Metal Silver paint job, but also gets a power boost and additional content.

BMW says the Pure Metal Silver finish is the most exclusive paint color offered by BMW Individual.

BMW says the limited-edition cars are "completely removed from the regular production process" so the surface can be checked three times to ensure perfection before the paint is applied by hand. A Glacier Silver Metal base coat is applied first, then the surface is checked again and sprayed with the namesake Pure Metal Silver.
