I can’t believe there are only a handful of entries left in this series.  It has been almost a year…  I’m trying to figure out what is going to follow this…  Anyway…

There is one car in particular that defines performance sedans…  It is THE yardstick by which all other performance sedans are measured.  Some have begun to eclipse its performance, but that may not be for long.  Whether we are talking about Infiniti, Lexus, AMG, Pontiac (the G8GXP is knocking on the door), Cadillac or any other company… the King of the Hill to be knocked off is the BMW M5.

Beginning with a 3.5L I-6 engine (the higher performance variant from the BMW M-1) and now sporting a 5.0L V-10, these have been flagships of BMW performance for almost 25 years.

The current generation of cars have some impressive numbers…

  • 0-60 in 4.1 seconds
  • 0-100 in 10.1 seconds
  • 193mph top speed with the limiter removed (155mph limited)
  • Priced near $90,000…
