The 500-Horsepower Understatement

Woodcliff Lake, NJ Since its introduction in 1984, the BMW M5 Sedan has been the essence of the M philosophy: the combination of exhilarating performance, knife-edge handling and superior comfort wrapped in understated bodywork that sends the sharp-eyed observer subtle hints about its stunning capabilities.

Knowledgeable drivers will detect these attributes after only a few minutes behind the 2008 M5's steering wheel. The editors of Germany's Auto Zeitung noted, "its 5.0-liter V-10 would upgrade many super sports cars." Writing for ForbesAuto, Don Sherman reported, "This car corners like an open-wheel, single-seat race car, with no apparent end to its grip." test drivers observed, "other [interior features] include supremely comfortable and substantially bolstered standard sports seats," and concluded, "the magic of BMW's M cars has always been their massive performance accompanied by incredible civility."

The 2008 M5 brings this unique combination to an even higher level with a freshened design and significant equipment upgrades.
