2006 m5



he M5 is, and always has been, the distillation of everything that makes BMW cars special. M division engineers, endowed with a streak of lunacy, take an already great BMW 5-series car and add power, improve its handling, and create a sedan that takes on dedicated sports cars. You get the feeling these guys share a kinship with those fun-loving, society-be-damned types who put a few special ingredients into a still and create moonshine. In this case, it's the new, 500-hp BMW M5, the moonshine of cars.

The differences between a regular-production 5-series BMW and the no-holds-barred M5 have never been greater. First and foremost is the new engine. In today's automotive world of economies of scale, mergers, and collaborations, it is rare for an automaker to design an engine that is entirely new, but the 90-degree, 5.0-liter V-10 is an engine that must have skipped kindergarten because it doesn't share any of its parts. The high-revving V-10 was made for the M5 exclusively, and it makes the car feel as special as anything built outside of Maranello.

I remember when I first read the magazine article talking about the new M5, they were comparing it against a mercedes that was considered to be in its class, I forget the model.

God I love that car. There's an "M" button on the steering wheel that bumps it from 400hp to 500hp.

I want a 100hp button on my steering wheel that doesn't shoot nawz. haha, a factory safe go-faster button. How cool is that?

I can think of a non-Vanos M5 that's cooler.

It's decent.

i believe the button increases fuel injection and changes to a more agressive software setting for the cams / vanos or whatever.

i like the new M5's body style. There are a few things that arent great but it has more style than the previous m5 i think. Although i think bmw needs to hire a designer like the guy who designed the new Mustang. Im not a fan of mustangs but I do like how it brought back the design that really made the car what it was. It has style, and character. Just like the E30,34 and 36's did. They have style and character. Id prefer to see the crude boxy shape of an E30 or something.
