If the BMW 5 series is the high performance executive sedan, then the M version ups the ante. The first BMW M5 was based on the E28 platform 528 sedans, and was debuted at the Amsterdam Motor Show in February of 1984 with amped suspension and an evolution engine from the BMW rear engine M1 super car. Once the M5 was approved for production, they continued to be hand assembled at BMW Motorsport in Garching, Germany. The UK, European and South African versions all used the M88/3 engine, producing 282 hp. Those cars destined for North America required a catalytic converter, yet the S38B35 engine still produced a robust 256 hp.
BMW reported that the Euro Spec M5s would make 60 mph from a standing start in 6.5 seconds with a top speed of 153 mph. The American versions would match the 0-60 times, but were limited to 148 mph on the top end.
The first generation M5's were hand built, produced from November, 1986 for only twelve months. There were only 2,191 M5 units made worldwide.
The next generation M5 was built on the E34 platform from 1989 to 1995. The catalytic equipped North American cars were only down by 4 hp (307 hp compared to 311 for the Euro spec). In 1992, a five door touring M5 model was introduced. This was the first M wagon and the last hand built M car made.
From 1998 until 2003, the M5 had established itself as a formidable road and racing sedan, with victories all over the world, including against muscle and super cars. The production of all M5s was integrated into the same assembly line as the regular 5 series models in Southern Bavaria. Based on the E39 platform, it now enjoyed a performance enhanced S62 V8 394 hp engine, and all were delivered with a Getrang 6 Speed manual transmission. 0-60 was down to 4.8 seconds, and an unlimited road M5 hit 186 at Nurburgring.
The fourth generation E60 platform M5 was sold from 2005 to 2010, and was the most successful variant to date, selling 20,548 units of which 8,800 sedans went to the US. The S85 V10 engine was rated at 500 hp, and the transmission was the Getrang SMG III 7 speed semi-automatic, with a 6 speed manual still offered in the US market. An unlimited M5 made a 205.7 mph top speed.
The present F0 platform M5 went on sale in 2011. A new turbocharged V8 engine puts out 560 hp, but is considered to be a shade slower than its predecessor, primarily because of weight gains.
