History

The E39 M5 arrived in 1999 for the 2000 model year, marking the first V-8 engine to be used in an M production car. And what an engine it is. The 4.9-liter naturally aspirated V-8-internally referred to as the S62-makes 394 hp at 6600 rpm and 369 lb-ft of torque at 3800 rpm. It is a righteous screamer of an engine right up to its 7000-rpm redline, and it could haul the stately German sled from 0-60 mph in under 5 seconds. With its variable valve timing for both the intake and exhaust cams, as well as individual throttle bodies for its octet of cylinders, this is among the finest engines ever to leave Munich's hallowed halls. But the M5 isn't just all ate up with motor. The only transmission available was a six-speed manual-a beefed-up version of the unit found in the BMW 540i. Even today the chassis feels stout and athletic, despite a touch of body roll. The interior is handsome, purposeful, and assembled with high-quality leather, wood, and plastic. The seats hug your love handles with firm, reassuring support. In 2000, Car and Driver called it "the most desirable sedan in the world."
