The original BMW M5 was released in 1986 an autobahn cruiser that was only available in black like a Ford Model T, but unlike a Model T, it was monstrously fast. The next generation also featured an upgraded version of the BMW inline-6, but it wasn’t until the 1999 release of the E39 generation M5 that it got an appropriately menacing V8 to tear up the streets. This next car has been modified and the seller claims to have removed 400lbs of worthless weight. Find this 2001 BMW M5 E39 offered for $13,900 in Encino, CA via craigslist.
From the seller;
2001 Bmw m5
cylinders: 8 cylinders
paint color: silver
title status: clean
My 2001 e39 M5 is up for sale.
The car has a clean title and 184,000 miles.
I would say my M5 is one of the kind in mechanical order as well as esthetically. Looks like a beast and drives like a monster. Super fast and sounds incredible! Great car and I’m sadly have to part with it. This car is going up in the value right now crazy, in a few years it’s going to be worth a looot of money, so this is a good investment and a great weekend car!
I have worked on taking 400lbs. of weight out of it in order to make it less of a luxury auto and more of a nimble track focused car.
