Brief History of the BMW M5 E39

The BMW M5 E39, produced from 1998 to 2003, is often hailed as one of the most outstanding sports saloons ever made. It’s the fourth generation of the BMW M5 series and is highly regarded for its exceptional performance, handling, and elegant design.

Here’s a brief history of the BMW M5 E39:


The E39 M5 was introduced in 1998 as the successor to the E34 M5. It was powered by a 4.9-litre naturally aspirated V8 engine, producing 394 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. This engine was paired with a six-speed manual transmission, offering exhilarating performance.


The BMW M5 E39 boasted impressive performance figures, with a 0-60 mph acceleration time of around 4.8 seconds. Its top speed was electronically limited to 155 mph (250 km/h), but some versions could reach higher speeds with the limiter removed.

Chassis and Handling:

BMW engineers focused on delivering exceptional handling and driving dynamics. The E39 M5 featured an aluminium-intensive suspension system, perfectly balancing comfort and agility. It also had a limited-slip rear differential, enhancing traction and cornering capabilities.


Visually, the E39 M5 retained the understated elegance typical of BMW’s M cars. Its exterior featured subtle M-specific styling cues such as a more aggressive front bumper, side skirts, and quad exhaust pipes. Inside, the cabin was luxurious and well-appointed, with high-quality materials and ergonomic design.


The E39 M5 is often considered a benchmark for sports sedans and has garnered a dedicated following among automotive enthusiasts. Its combination of performance, comfort, and everyday usability has ensured its enduring popularity.


BMW produced the M5 E39 in relatively limited numbers compared to standard 5 Series models. Approximately 20,000 units were built during its production run, contributing to its exclusivity and collectability.


The BMW M5 E39 was succeeded by the E60 M5 in 2005, which featured a V10 engine. However, many enthusiasts hold the E39 M5 in high regard, considering it a pinnacle of BMW’s engineering prowess and a timeless classic in the automotive world.
