This 2001 BMW M5 has 54,613 miles and is finished in arguably the greatest color for the car – LeMans Blue over black and Silverstone Nappa leather upholstery. After a long search for a LeMans Blue Metallic E39 M5, this example was acquired from BMW specialist, Enthusiast Auto Group, in 2020 for one of our clients. While at EAG, this M5 received a comprehensive $12,000 service and features a clean Carfax report that validates its consistent progression of mileage. Having five owners from new, this M5 features consistent paint readings and original paint on all panels. Its cosmetic condition is impressive and it’s evident that every one of its previous owners cared for it.


The interior of this M5 was ordered with a Sport interior, which fits the car with two-tone seats with “Ostrich” leather centers and aluminum trim throughout the cabin. On this car, a combination of black and “Silverstone” gray leather is fitted on the seats, and door cards. Equipment includes 18″ Style 65 wheels, a sunroof, fog lights, xenon headlights, heated power-adjustable front seats, an M Audio system, dual-zone automatic climate control, and navigation.


Powering the E39 M5 is a DOHC 5-liter V8, known internally as the S62. It is fitted with double VANOS variable valve timing, eight individual throttle bodies, and “semi-dry-sump” oiling, increasing engine lubrication under hard cornering. Rated from the factory at 394 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque, the S62 is an outstandingly flexible engine that will happily pull from 1,800 rpm in top gear or rev to 7,000 rpm. This engine is then backed up by a mandatory 6-speed manual gearbox built by Getrag that sends power back to a shortened 3.15 rear axle with a limited-slip differential.


“The E39 M5’s legend looms large in the automotive world, and it is hard to find an enthusiast who doesn’t love them. Although it may seem like there are a bunch of E39 M5s out there, in truth, less than 10,000 came to the United States over the 4 years of production, and that number shrinks dramatically when you factor in colors other than silver and cars without deep 6-figure mileage. If you have always wanted to experience the wonder that is an E39 M5, or if you bought one new and regret letting it go, this example will bring you right back to 2002 and the car that truly epitomized BMW’s slogan at the time,” “The Ultimate Driving Machine.” – Directly from the EAG website


This E39 M5 has been freshly serviced by Road Scholars and is now ready for its next caretaker.
