The E60 M5 was introduced in 2005, with a V10 engine and seven-speed transmission linking the car with the BMW Sauber Formula One program. The E60 M5 was the world's first production saloon to use a V10 petrol engine. The E63/E64 M6 coupé and convertible are based on a shortened version of the M5 chassis and largely use the same mechanical components. The official 0 to 62 mph acceleration figure is 4.7 seconds, however magazine tests have recorded figures down to 4.1 seconds. The E60 M5 was the fastest four-door saloon available at the time of its introduction with the top speed electronically restricted to 155 mph but could be raised to 190 mph with the optional M-driver's package. To cap off a stunning entry into the sports saloon market the M5 recorded a Nürburgring lap time of an impressive 8:13 and with just 1,776 UK examples produced is very well thought of amongst collectors and enthusiasts.

This wonderful E60 BMW was registered new on 28th June 2007 and is fitted with the powerful 5 litre V10. This M5 has had five former keepers from new and presents very well throughout. Offered in Silverstone blue paintwork with full Silverstone cream leather interior both presenting in very good condition throughout. Converted to a manual, six-speed M3 gearbox with a higher ratio differential by Everything M Power in Banbury, the UK’s leading M specialist. Other works completed include the replacement of the con rod bearings in 2023 and a comprehensive service history. This is an excellent low mileage example in fantastic condition.
