BMW M5 Review, For Sale, Colours, Specs & Models in Australia

Ask anyone who loves European cars to name their ultimate executive performance sedan, and there’s a good chance the BMW M5 will be the first thing they utter.

The halo model for the 5 Series range has always been at the cutting edge of technology and performance, and over the years this luxury go-fast sedan has warped into a supercar beater in terms of its acceleration and awe-inspiring agility.

It’s no surprise that all that progress comes at a price – the M5 starts at $273,600.

BMW M5 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the BMW M5 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Will my M5 become a collector's item?

    You should never consider a car as an investment, just a depreciating asset, unless you're lucky enough to have a rare classic Porsche or Ferrari in the garage. The V10-engined M5 is definitely a favourite with driving enthusiasts but it's unlikely to become a serious investment because of the number built.
