Weight in kg
BMW showed its second-generation 5 series to the press in Munich in the summer of 1981. Built at BMW's plant in Dingolfing, West Germany, the 5-series mid-sized sports sedan looked similar to its predecessor, the 3-series, but featured simpler construction and new weight-reducing design that cut curb weights of the various four-and six-cylinder models by 60-90 kilos. At the Amsterdam Motor Show in February, 1985, BMW unveiled the M5, the most exciting BMW sedan variant yet.
BMW's M Motorsport division oversaw the adaptation of company's 3453-cc inline-six from the M635CSi into the 5 series body along with changes to the suspension tuning and various styling enhancement. European versions made 286 horsepower and reached 100 km/h in 6.2 seconds with a top speed of 243 km/h. When it finally reached American shores in late 1986, the M5 was detuned to 256 hp to comply with stricter emissions standards. Just six M5s were hand-bulit per day at the BMW M Motorsport GmbH workshop, with just 2241 copies reaching customers before production ended in November, 1987.
