         hen the handsome and sophisticated E39 5-series was launched, a suitably large injection of performance and attitude was required. To create this third generation of M5, BMW Motorsport didn’t disappoint with the technological marvel that is the S62 V8 – 4.9 litre, 32 valve, quad cam, 400bhp, 500 Nm of torque, power plant. Mated to a slick six speed manual gearbox and the beginnings of the configurable electronics that would underpin future generations of M cars. The button labelled ‘Sport’ triggers sharper drive-by-wire throttle response and a little more steering weight. As with so much else about the E39 M5 it’s just about perfect. Still rated by the enthusiast press as the best generation of M5 to roll out of M. 

The E39 M5 looks as an M car should with a lower, more muscular stance and bulging arches amply stuffed with 245/40 18s at the front and 275/35 18s at the rear. This was also the first appearance of the M GmbH’s now signature quad tailpipes.

Even 22 years after its introduction, 0-60 in 4.8 seconds would still shame many. This wonderfully smooth and free-revving V8 is music to the ears. However, and we at Classic Heroes love this, the E39 M5 is even more memorable for a chassis that combines crisp steering, fantastic grip, but with great comfort and an almost absurdly exploitable chassis, ensuring that driver and passengers are kept equally happy, although not necessarily at the same time!

Cars like this M5 rarely come along.  For the E39 enthusiast this represents a truly exciting opportunity to own what has to be the best E39 M5 and presented in as new condition.  This Facelift example has covered only 10,000 miles from new, with a full-service history and still retains all original paint. We would suggest that this is most likely to be the best, most original, lowest mileage, right hand drive M5 in existence today.

This example was built in December 2001, delivered to Wollaston Motors and registered to the first owner on 16th January 2002. The first two owners covered 8,600 miles between January 2002 and April 2012 when it was sold to the current and third owner.  The current owner’s attention to detail should be praised. The car has been kept under lock and key in superb dry storage during his ownership and has never seen rain once whilst in his care. The most recent and very detailed invoice is for a complete underside, interior and exterior detail, running to 120 hours and an eye watering £4,000. 

 

The owner’s attention to detail is breathtaking and his quest to retain originality has been a total success. This M5 even features the original tyres. This car is presented in Museum condition.
