Gateway Classic Cars of San Antonio/Austin is happy to offer a
truly stunning piece of German engineering & performance, this 2001
BMW M5.The E39 M5 was 1st introduced for the 1999 model year, and
based on the E39 5 Series, this was the first M5 to be powered by a
V8, being fitted with BMW's S62 engine, which was a 4.9L naturally
aspirated unit. This new engine generated 394hp which powered the
rear wheels through a smooth shifting 6-speed manual transmission.
In addition to the powerful engine, major suspension and steering
changes improved the response and feel of the chassis because it
was also the first M5 to use aluminum front suspension components
and a multi-link rear suspension. At the time, it was considered
one of the highest performing luxury cars of all time not only
because of its near 50/50 weight balance but because of its
superior drivetrain and chassis. The 2001 M5 also received a
facelift for the 2001 model year, at the same time as the standard
E39 models, that included halogen "corona rings" in headlights
(often called "Angel Eyes"), LED tail-lights and various interior
upgrades. Finished in the Alpine silver exterior over black
leather, this 2001 M5 has just about every option that was
available from the factory! This 2001 M5 is a 2-owner vehicle from
sunny CA. and is an accident-free, CarFax documented, 132k mile
2001 BMW M5
