The M5 was a luxury sports sedan produced by the German automaker BMW between the years of 1988 and 1995. Each M5 car was hand-built using the 535i chassis and a modified BMW M1 engine. At its debut at the Amsterdam Motor Show the M5 was the fastest production sedan.
This 4-door sedan had RWD (rear-wheel drive), a 5-speed manual transmission and a
gasoline engine with displacement of 3535 cm3 or 216.3 cui. Its advertised power was 231.5 kW or 310 hp, with torque of 360 Nm or 265 lb-ft. It had a 0- 60 mph time of a quick 6 seconds, 0-100 km/h of just 6.3 seconds, and 1/4 mile drag time (402 m) of 13.9 seconds. The top speed was 155 mph and was electronically governed.
The US and Canadian models were well apportioned with Leather Door Panels, Leather Center Console, Full Trunk Carpeting, Air Conditioning, Power Windows, Power Sunroof, Power Seats, Cruise Control, On-Board Computer, Central Locking and Shadow-line Trim all standard. European models had a few extra options available, such as water buffalo leather and a glass mono-roof.
The second edition of the M5 was hand-built at BMW M GmbH in Garching, Germany. Assembly of each car took about 2 weeks of highly skilled work. The S38B36 engine produces 311 hp and was available in the US market. The European market, with its more lax emission standards was equipped with a S38B38 that produces 340 hp.
