The E60 M5 was introduced in 2004, with a V10 engine and 7-speed transmission linking the car with the BMW Sauber Formula One program. The E60 M5 was the world's first production sedan to use a V10 petrol engine. This generation of the M5 was also built in the E61 Touring (wagon) body style, which was only sold in Europe. The M5 model was designed by Karl John Elmitt.
The official 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration figure is 4.7 seconds for the sedan, however magazine tests have recorded figures down to 4.1 seconds. The E60 M5 was the fastest 4-door sedan available at the time of its introduction. Top speed is electronically restricted to 250 km/h, but could be raised to 305 km/h with the optional M-driver's package. The M5 has recorded a Nürburgring lap time of 8:13.
Upgrades over regular 5 Series models include a wider track, unique body panels, a colourful heads up display featuring navigation, control messages, speed, rpm and gear selection information, automated seat side bolsters, heated/ventilated seats and power rear curtain. The larger, flared front guards on either side also featured cooling vents, reminiscent of the 1970s BMW CSL. The wheels were of a 19-inch diameter and the car has quad exhaust pipes at the rear.
The BMW S85 is a 5.0 L V10 engine which generates a power output of 373 kW (507 PS; 500 hp) at 7,750 rpm and 520 Nm of torque at 6,100 rpm. The S85 was exclusively used in the E60/E61 M5 (and related E63/E64 M6) and is not based on any other engine.
During its five-year production run, 20,589 units were built composing of 19,564 sedans and 1,025 Touring.
