BMW E39 M5

BMW M5 (E39) | Year 2000 | 'The last real M5'.

According to connoisseurs and BMW enthusiasts, the 'E39' M5, which was built from 1998 to 2003, is the last real M5. A pure sports sedan, without complicated computer systems and turbochargers, but with a fat V8. An uninflated five litre engine with 400 bhp. The same power as a Ferrari 360! Even more impressive is the mighty torque of 500 Nm, over 125 Nm more than the Ferrari. Even now, twenty years later, the M5 delivers peak power that few modern cars can match.

Perfect sports sedan

The German car makers have a patent on the fast sports sedan and this BMW M5 is the ultimate example. It is an impressive car that radiates modest power. We managed to get our hands on this perfect example. We found it in the rolling hills of the Bavarian Forest, less than an hour's drive from its birthplace, the BMW factory in Dingolfing. The car looks like it came out of the factory yesterday. Unlike many other M5s that have had a hard life on the German Autobahn, this car has been cherished by its two previous owners. They were enthusiasts who have always appreciated the exclusivity and value of this pure car concept, especially now that we live in a time where downsized turbo engines, computers and sound engineering rule the roost.

Important to know

The beautiful BMW M5 that we are offering for sale here spent its first four years in the Cologne area. During that time, the car was demonstrably maintained by BMW dealer Rolf Horn, a dealership with several branches in the Bonn region and a specialisation in M5s. In 2004, the car was traded in at Mercedes dealer RKG in Euskirchen. Here, the car was purchased by an enthusiast and collector of special and sporty cars. He brought the car back to its birthplace. In 16 years time, the M5 drove 9.000 kilometres. The car had a seasonal registration, which means that it was never driven in the winter. The car was always stored in a dry garage.

Highest quality

Vivento is always looking for the highest quality, as you can see in this M5. The car has driven only 79,000 kilometres and is in exceptionally good condition, both technically and visually. The carbon-schwarz paint is like new and the full leather interior shows no signs of wear. Engine-wise, there is a healthy V8 under the bonnet. The engine has been thoroughly inspected by us and thanks to the comprehensive maintenance history, we know for sure that the M5 has received the care it needs according to the factory specifications. In short, this is a unique M5 and we dare say the best in the Netherlands.
