There are sport sedans, and then there’s the BMW 5M Series. No other car in recent memory has been able to represent the ideal for this segment as strongly as the Bimmer.
For each of its five generations, the M5 has impressively blended sports car performance, sedan utility and luxury ambience. The M5 is a product of BMW’s performance-tuning M Division.
It’s based on the 5 Series sedan, and historical calling cards include a unique and more powerful engine, a sport-tuned suspension, more powerful brakes, special wheels and tires, and aerodynamically enhanced bodywork.
Though the most recent BMW M5 is the fleetest of the group, any M5 still represents a fantastic choice for a luxury sport sedan. Even M5s from the 1980s and ’90s were significant performers in their day, and the rare well-kept specimen still holds great appeal for enthusiasts.
