The BMW M5 Sedan

Power lines.
The exterior of the BMW M5 Sedan.
Activate the ignition and power pulses through every inch of the M5 Sedan’s body. This sense of energy is captured by the very shape of the BMW M5 Sedan. From the powerful curves of the bonnet beneath which lies the V10 high-rev power plant, dynamic lines run from the thrusting front section right through to the striking rear end with its four chrome-plated stainless steel exhaust pipes. Every single detail states loud and clear: this is a top athlete, ready for the most astounding performance.

Perfect harmony.
Inside the BMW M5 Sedan.
Opposites attract, they say. But what they don't say is when opposites fuse, they produce something utterly unique - the compelling atmosphere of the BMW M5 Sedan's interior, for example. The signature layout of the instrument panel, subtly enhanced by the illuminated, white scale rings and red needles, the sports-style M multifunction steering wheel, the exclusive range of Merino leather upholstery and generous proportions all ensure that sporting style and passenger comfort become one.
