Considered a pioneer in the development of the Sports Sedan, the M series designation was first used on the E28 sedan in 1984. Evolutions in this series continued through to the E60/E61 models first offered in 2004. By then performance was staggering with the E60 capable of achieving 4.1 second 0-60 mph sprints and mind-boggling unrestricted top speed of 205 mph, making it the fastest four door sedan available at that time. Top speed was electronically limited, but there was no limit to the luxury as standard features included full power controls, high end audio, leather trimmed interiors, and numerous optional features to enhance an already robust package.
History of This Car
Originally sold by Towne BMW in Williamsville, NY and delivered to the first owner in March 2006, this M5 was first titled and registered in New York where it was serviced regularly by Towne BMW. The first owner continued regular dealer services until the car was sold in 2015. The second owner titled and registered the car in Florida where it remained until 2021 when it was offered for sale on the website Bringatrailer and sold to the current (3rd) owner, a resident of Beverly Hills, CA.
In addition to the many standard features offered on these cars, this example was optioned from the factory with the following cost-added options:
