BMW has officially ended production of the E60 BMW M5 after five years of production. 20,548 units of the fourth-generation M5 were assembled during this time, the majority of which were saloons. Only 1,025 BMW M5 Touring units were built since the five-door's release in 2007.

The E60 M5 featured a 5.0-liter V10 petrol engine that delivers 509 horsepower, and up to 520Nm of torque. Mated to either a seven-speed SMG or six-speed manual transmission, the car was capable of a 0-100 km/h time of 4.2 seconds. Though the car was theoretically able to hit 337 km/h, its speed was electronically-limited to 249 km/h.

BMW will likely begin modifying their Dingolfing, Germany, factory to prepare for the F10 M5 production. The fifth-generation M5 is expected to get the same 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 found in the X5 M and X6 M. It will potentially be tuned to deliver 570 hp and up to 680Nm of torque.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
