And although BMW M pursues many creative enterprises, it has come to signify a very special breed of high-performance automobiles.

Over the years, M3, M5 and M6 models have offered performance enthusiasts special, uniquely 'M' interpretations of what a performance automobile should be. Most recently, M has been acclaimed for its high-performance 2-seaters, the M roadster and M coupe (see separate release in this kit). Now M introduces the third generation M5: the most powerful, most luxurious, most high-tech M car ever. An automotive designer's dream: combining the highest possible level of performance and sumptuous luxury in a single car.

Not incidentally, the E39 M5 is also the first M car powered by a V8 engine. And therein lies the heart of this incredibly exciting sports sedan: a 5-liter, 400-hp V8 engine incorporating a host of new, performance-enhancing technologies making their first-ever appearance in a production motorcar.
