The BMW M5 is the original super sedan, it’s the car that showed the world just how much fun a sedan could actually be if you stuffed a great big engine in it. When the M5 first arrived in the mid ’80s, it was a revelation; a four-door family sedan that could keep up with Porsche 911s and Ferraris. Since then, every other premium brand has tried to replicate the success of the M5, to varying degrees of success. While other brands make brilliant super sedans/wagons, such as Mercedes-AMG and Audi, the M5 is the original.
In this new video from Lovecar, we get to see Tiff Needell drive and talk about each generation of BMW M5, from the original E28 all the way up to the new F90. It’s quite fascinating to see, as Needell has been racing and testing cars since before the original E28 M5 first debuted. So he’s seen the BMW M5 as a car evolve first-hand, throughout its history.
