Source: USA E60 M5 Price and 1st Year Production Numbers
From a BMW source today (1/11/05):
Target base price: $85,000 (BMW fretting over Euro/Dollar issue)
Source did not know what options would be standard at that price.
First year production numbers: 1000 units for the USA for 2006 model year production with first units arriving late Fall 2005.
I have no reason to doubt the source, but only time will tell about accuracy.
