In 1986 BMW released the first M5, which was the fastest production sedan at the time.

Sporting a handmade M1 motor by the Motorsport Division of BMW mated to the 535i chassis, the M5 touted family-friendly options with brute force that dads love.

Nearly 30 years later, the 5th generation M5, the F10, is still the best four-door family car that will destroy just about anything in its path. The 5th generation M5 sports up to 560 horsepower with 502 ft-pounds of torque.

I recently had the privilege of taking a ride in a M5, and it is one of the most amazing cars I have ever been in. People who know me, know that I am a Mercedes fan-boy. I would drag my body through a mile of broken glass just to hear an E63 AMG’s exhaust through a walkie-talkie.

Yet, I found myself saying that I would spend my own money on a M5, which wouldn’t be a bad thing at all.

The picture in this post is a future concept of a BMW car, not specifically an M5.
