The BMW M5 is a high performance variant of the BMW 5 Series marketed under the BMW M sub-brand. It is considered an iconic vehicle in the sports sedan category. The majority of M5's have been produced in the sedan (saloon) body style, however the E34 and E60 generations were also available with a wagon (estate) body style in selected markets.
The first M5 model 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. M5 models have been produced for every generation of the 5 Series since 1986.
