5 millionth BMW 5 Series produced
BMW announced that, on January 29, built its 5 millionth 5 Series. The model was a 530d Sedan in a Carbon Black Metallic color (yeah, it looks blue to us too). BMW began the production of the 5 Series 36 years ago, in 1972 and the current generation, the fifth, debuted in 2004. The 5 Series, which has always set high standards in the luxury sedan market, evolved over the years and the M5 is a perfect example for that. The first M5, the M535i, was powered by a 218 hp 3.5 liter engine, while today’s M5 is a beast, powered by a 5.0 liter V8 engine, developing 500 hp.
Congratulations to BMW for this milestone and we hope to see at least the same quality and performance from the Bavarian producer. You can see one more photo of the 5 millionth BMW after the jump.
