Bavarian Dream Machine BMW M5

   Back in the eighties BMW produced a car that quickly became a legend, the M1. This car looked a little like a Pantera and was priced about a 100k but most importantly it let the world know that the BMW M series was all about speed. Quite quickly the M3 developed a cult following. This car, which sold for a lot less then a Porsche 911, told the world that its owner was serious about cars.  Today the 2005 M3 sells for 54k about 20k more then a 330i. What made the M3 so interesting was its wolf in sheep’s clothing personality. When you look at a Vette it conveys its sporty image. This was true of most sports cars, with the exception of a few pocket rockets like the VW GTI and Renault 5. The M3 was not just a sporty new sedan it was a world beater. This car became the most sought after vehicle by young men who needed four doors because they had so many friends.

While the M3 has been continually upgraded, other manufactures did not sit by and let this market niche be owned by BMW. Subaru has built a very serious WRX while Mitsubishi has released the Evolution, a car with mythical performance numbers. BMW realized that it was a sitting duck when it came to the Japanese being able to produce their own versions of the M3.

To separate BMW from the pack they decided to raise the bar. They would build a car that the Japanese couldn’t copy. This vehicle, the 2005 M5, would set a new level of performance for a 4 door sedan, a level that others would not be able to duplicate.

When you begin to look at the performance of a group of vehicles, a good place to start is the manufactures published 0-62 time. This number will tell you about the cars straight line performance, its ability to get out of harms way. This number can quickly tell you what class to put a vehicle in. BMW choose 4.7 seconds as the time to publish. This coincidently is exactly the same published time for the Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG as well as both the Lancer Evolution and the Subaru WRX STI. The complete Irony of this is that the only way its going to take you 4.7 seconds to go from 0-62 in the new M5 is, if you stop to pick up a pizza along the way. In a November 2004 road test by Automobile magazine they were able to record a 3.6 second 0-62 time this is the same amount of time that it takes the Porsche GT Carrera, a car that sells for $448,000, and only .1 seconds slower then the 3.5 seconds that it takes a Lamborghini Murcielago, a car that’s about as close to race ready as any car on the road.
