THE M5 pro­duced from 2005 to 2010 was based on the E60 gen­er­a­tion of the 5 Se­ries.

Pow­ered by a high-revving 5.0-litre V10 pur­pose-de­signed for the role, it was the quick­est and fastest sedan in the world at the time.

And, it was widely agreed, the best to drive. It was re­placed in 2011 by the F10 gen­er­a­tion M5 with a new twin-turbo 4.4-litre V8, which lacked charisma in com­par­i­son.
