About BMW M5

The BMW M5 series was manufactured with the purpose of getting more performance from the 5 series executive cars of BMW. The chassis of the 535i and the engine of the BMW M1 were being used to create the first M5 series car way back in 1985. Like the various versions of the 5 series cars, the M5 series has also been manufactured with various upgrades over time and the available versions of the car were E28, E34, E39, E60/E61 and now the F10.

While the F10 M5 is the best performer and most stylish car, most of the previous M5 versions would still beat any sports luxury car in terms of style and performance any given day. Back in the 80s and 90s, it was a common saying that on one side there are sport sedans, and on the other side there is a BMW M5; such was the charisma of the car.

As with the BMW M3, the M5 has been the leader in its class since its inception. Although Mercedes and Audi have created viable alternatives, the M5 is still the top dog in that category according to most car enthusiasts.

Body Styles and Manufacturing Years

BMW M5 0-60With newer versions coming up, the BMW Motorsport engineers had to spend some sleepless nights working on the exterior of the car. While the 1987 model E28 M5 had a sedan body style, the later versions of the car adapted the 5 door wagon style as well. The body styles of the various versions of the car are as follows:

  • BMW E28 M5 – Three box sedan style with 4 doors. Production period was between 1985 to 1988.
  • BMW E34 M5 – Three box 4 door sedan/saloon and 2 box 5 door wagon style. Production period was between 1989 to 1995.
  • BMW E39 M5 – Three box sedan style with 4 doors. The car was manufactured between 1998 and 2003.
  • BMW E60 M5 – Three box 4 door sedan/saloon and 2 box 5 door touring/wagon style with production years from 2005 to 2010.
  • BMW F10 M5 – Three boxes sedan style with 4 doors has been in production since 2011 and is still being manufactured today.


What would you expect from a perfect sports car? 99% of the answers that one would get for this question are a perfect acceleration and mind blowing quarter mile times. That is exactly where the BMW M5 cars have the cutting edge.

While the E39 had a 0-60 mph time of around 4.7 seconds and quarter mile time of 13.2 seconds, the acceleration was reduced to 4.1 seconds and 12.7 seconds in the succeeding version M5 E60.

The currently produced M5 F10 is almost in the supercar category with a 0 to 60 time of just 3.7 seconds and a quarter mile time of 11.9 seconds.

F10 is Born to Steal the Show

With 4.4 Liters twin turbo V8 engine, the F10 is the ultimate sports car in the getup of a luxury sedan. With high adjustable settings such as suspension firmness, steering weight, throttle response, stability control and transmission shift programming, the F10 is a dream car that is quick and swift on the road.

Speed is the first and last word that can go with the M5 F10 model of the BMW M5 series.
