BMW's M5 is the yardstick against which all serious performance saloons are judged, a car that in fifth generation form got turbo power for the first time, courtesy of a 552bhp 4.4-litre V8. It was 10% more powerful yet 30% more efficient than its V10 predecessor and featured a trick diff got the power on tarmac. So, how does this 'F10' generation M5 stack up as a used buy?
A quarter of a century of normally aspirated engineering excellence for BMW's M division came to an end with the launch of this 'F10' generation M5. And a new turbocharged era began, a time in which the market's defining super saloon became faster, yet more frugally efficient as it re-invented itself for the modern era.
Everything that was wrong with its much admired 'E60' predecessor - the thirst, the awkward gearbox, the choppy day-to-day personality - was corrected in this car with a clinical ruthlessness that may leave some a little detached from this car's fire-breathing personality. For many more though, this BMW defines the super saloon market from its era, in fifth generation form more than ever able to be all things to almost all people, luxury limo one minute, circuit star the next. It's everything an M5 should be.
