The BMW M5 is a high performance variant of the 5 Series executive car built by the Motorsport division of BMW. The first incarnation of the M5 was hand-built in 1986 on the 535i chassis with a modified engine from the M1 that made it the fastest production sedan at the time.[1] Versions of the M5 have been built from subsequent generations of the 5 Series platform.
