Big Motoring Worlds Car of the Week: BMW M5
The BMW M5. The hot version of the 5 series. This car first came to life back in the 80’s when a 535i was mated to a modified engine from an M1. Successfully bolted together, the M5 was born and back then, was the fastest road-going saloon of the era. Prepared by BMW’s Motorsport division, the M5 is as potent today as it was back then and the example that we have for sale at Big Motoring World is a fine example of the breed.
Finished in Alpine White and featuring those impressive M-Sport alloy wheels and blue brake callipers, this particular M5 is certainly a head turner. Part of the appeal of the BMW M5 is it’s elegant blend of subtlety, in regards to its looks, and it’s no holds barred supercar rivalling engine and drivetrain capabilities.
Five people can travel in relative comfort and this further adds to the M5’s already impressive list of credentials. This car has been beautifully specified by its original owner and features a Black Extended Merino Leather upholstered interior throughout. The dashboard is a clean and modern affair featuring touches of silver coloured trim throughout and the all important M Sport detailing is clear to see with badging featuring on the instrument clusters, steering wheel and gear stick. Completing the interior is the all-important M-Sport steering wheel which is slightly smaller than the standard wheel, all designed in an effort to give you, the driver, a much more involved and comfortable driving feel.
Completing the technological and interior specification is all of the following features to name but a few, Sat Nav, Heads Up Display, Electric Sunroof, Xenon Headlamps, M Sport Bodykit, Full Leather, Heated Seats and Privacy Glass.
The mechanicals underneath this car, which help to underpin its supercar-rivalling performance, are seriously impressive. Powered by a mighty 4.4-Litre petrol engine this machine delivers 553 bhp from its eight cylinders and is capable of a 0-62 mph time of 4.3 seconds and on to a limited top speed of 155 mph. Performance figures to worry even the most spirited of supercars and a driving experience to match with its capable automatic transmission.
Covering just 46,729 miles and benefitting from just one previous keeper, this car is in great condition and really has to be seen to be appreciated.
