MILAN, June 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Alcantara is featured throughout the interior of BMW's recently introduced fifth-generation 30 Jahre M5 – one of the most powerful cars ever built by the Munich-based automaker.

BMW 30 Jahre M5 interior featuring Alcantara

The company plans to build only 300 of the limited-edition 30 Jahre M5's to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the M5. To enhance the 30 Jahre's interior, BMW chose Alcantara due to the Italian-made material's unique combination of features, including carbon-neutrality, lightweight, breathability, sporty grip and luxurious look-and-feel.

Alcantara is being used on the 30 Jahre M5's seats, backrests, pillars, steering wheel and headliner.

Alcantara and BMW have a long-standing partnership which is further underlined by the German carmaker's selection of Alcantara to satisfy the M5's standards for quality and image.
