2000 bmw m5 E39 for sale rears
Fast Facts:

  • The E39 was the last M5 generation to feature a manual as the sole transmission option
  • The E39’s S62 engine utilizes individual throttle bodies, and both the crankshaft and connecting rods are forged steel
  • A sophisticated g-force sensitive lubrication system (semi dry-sump) can detect high lateral G forces and redirect oil to different parts of the engine
  • Speaking of g-force, the E39 M5 is capable of 1.2 lateral G – unheard of at the time for a sedan
  • According to Alexander Hildebrandt (E39 M5 project manager), engineers first considered a supercharged version of the S38 (the motorsports-derived 6 cylinder used in the previous M5, the E34). They thought this would keep purists happy, since the S38 has been the sole engine for the M5 since it’s birth in the 80’s. However, the growing demand for V8’s in the late 90’s meant the 6 cyl S38 had no place in the next M5, especially with stiff competition from Audi’s 4.2, Jaguar’s AJV8, and supercharged AMG’s from Mercedes Benz
  • It’s safe to say that purists weren’t disappointed with the resulting 7k RPM V8. Upon its debut, Motor Trend claimed the E39 M5 was “Simply the greatest super-sedan ever produced”. Car and Driver called it “the most desirable sedan in the world”. In 2002, Consumer Reports famously declared the E39 M5 the best car they have ever reviewed, period
Key Model Year Changes:

  • 2000 was the first model year of the E39 generation, replacing the E34 generation M5
  • 2001 marked the year of biggest changes for the E39 M5, including bigger navigation screen display, M sport steering wheel, halo angel-eye headlights, and more
