As a new E39 M5 owner (delivery 6/3/05), I thought a thread devoted to interesting facts about the M5 would be cool. Through this thread, we can celebrate the beast we all love, and all the facts will be in one place.

Please post anything and everything, but try to limit it to hard facts, rather than subjective beliefs. Stats and numbers come to mind. Perhaps, someone knows how many total M5 were built, numbers per year, who owns the first and the last, etc.

Here's my interesting fact: The motor is a 90 degree V8. And I believe (correct me if I'm wrong) that it was the first M car to have a V8. :flag:

Interesting facts that I had forgotten or just never know.

Thanks,

Mark

I think this is pretty much the info that David S posted, but here is the official BMW Registry web page so you can save it to your favorites and come back to it every now and then (I certainly do).

That web-page is pretty much identical to what V-10 4 Me posted when he started the thread I referred to above.

Somebody got ripped off... that is bad manners, or V-10 4 Me posted his text
on two web-sites which of course is perfectly all right.
