2008 BMW M5
2008 BMW M5
BMW (Bavarian Motor Works in English) is a German multinational company which currently produces luxury automobiles and motorcycles, and also produced aircraft engines until 1945. The white and blue checker boxes are supposed to be a stylized representation of a white/silver propeller blade spinning against a clear blue sky. For BMW, it was 'a happy coincidence' that the BMW logo symbolized the Bavarian flag colors and represented the company's origin.
Arguably the most sought-after series in the history of the M5, the E60 was introduced in 2005 with a huge, naturally-aspirated 5.0-liter S85 V10 making 507hp under the hood. It was the first sedan to have a V10, and with a 0-60 time of 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 204mp, it was the fastest sedan in the world at that time. Truly supercar performance in a Tuxedo.
In all black Darth Vader-like form, this car presents very nicely. Adorned with HID Xenon self auto, auto leveling, cornering headlights, they can definitely see you coming, but will have no idea of how fast it will really happen. Otherwise the Black Sapphire Metallic looks beautiful. A nice sunroof is atop, and allows a great airflow when opened, although it may just be the fact that you are over 100mph?! Nifty power folding and heated exterior mirrors are a nice feature. Original 19”M wheels powder coated in...black really show off the large disc brakes situated behind them. A full set of “Winter” tires and wheels are coming along with this car...see photo. Last but not least, this car is equipped with front and rear park distance sensors.
Stepping into the cockpit, we smell and see a full Extended Portland Brown leather interior in the color way of Sepang. All looking and feeling very nice. Also tickling our fancy is the curvaceous center console which has Maderia Walnut high gloss trim surrounding matte metal gearshift cover, and a knob style “mouse” to operate the screen in the dash above. Out back is a leather matching rear bench, which not to be outdone by the buckets is heated also. Multiple way seat adjustment for total comfort or sports mode, will grab you and your attention. To further protect the rear passengers, we note a power rear window sunshade. The power, heated, tilt, telescope steering wheel with audio, cruise control, phone and voice controls emanates gracefully from the dash. Speaking of the dash there is a wonderful amalgamation of padded leather, more Maderia Walnut, and a plethora of bells and whistles. GPS Navigation is installed, and there is a push button start.
A massive 5.0 liter V10 which will produce 500hp is fed by electronic fuel injection. This is backed by an SMG 3- 7 speed electrohydraulic manual transmission. No clutch to push…just flip the shifter.
As expected well sorted under here with no rust or anything remarkable on the negative side. We note independent suspension with damper control with 3 modes: comfort, normal and sport. Power disc brakes will woah all these horses very quickly.
Pushing the button brought the mill to immediate life. A bit of a warmup, but trips around the Classic Auto Mall lot, revealed awesome power, great brakes, and a smooth ride in any of the 3 available modes. Seats were comfortable, and all controls are functioning as expected. With the dual exhaust, we are met with a nice sound.
Make no bones about it, this car looks like a mild mannered everyday sedan but in its belly is a true beast. Great performance, luxurious conveniences, several drive modes, a nifty shifter setup, and you can go for a run, or just a night out, and this car can handle it exquisitely.
