One of the most iconic and popular BMWs ever produced, the E39 M5 really is all things to all drivers, combining the luxury and comfort of the family saloon with the powerhouse V8. This S62, highly-tuned, 5Ltr engine kicks out a huge 400bhp, transforming into a fire-breathing monster with a quick burst of the fly-by-the-wire throttle and pulling the 1826 kg M5 from 0-60 in less than 4.8 seconds. The twin double-VANOS system varies intake and exhaust valve times for both cylinder banks as well as individual throttle actuators for the individual throttle butterflies, all of which gives a massively increased engine response time. By twinning this to the Getrag, 6-speed manual transmission gearbox, BMW created the superlative overall driving experience that is so characteristic of this, their most successful and sought after 5 series.
As standard the M5 features Dynamic Stability Control – throttle-based traction control for better cornering – as well as extremely comfortable Heated, Electrically-Adjustable Front Seats with Lumbar Support and Front Armrest. The cabin boasts Automatic Air Conditioning, On-Board Computer, Professional Hi-Fi System and 6-CD Changer adding to the sense of luxury and comfort. The car is also factory fitted with an Electric Glass Sunroof, as well as Xenons, Foglights and the Headlight Washer System with Intensive Cleaning. With all this luxurious spec you could easily forget that powerhouse V8 lurking under the bonnet – well, until you put your foot down of course ..
