The wonderful Interlagos Blue is a beautifully fluid colour and this example shows a particularly deep and consistent shine throughout; clearly an example that has enjoyed attentive ownership over the years. The detailing team have worked to produce a stunning example that looks as good as the pictures suggest with a lustrous swirl free finish. Panel fit and finish is superb with only a handful of stone chips to the front bumper belying the cars age and mileage.

Rubbers, seals and shadow line all appear supple and soft to touch with excellent integrity, colour and shape all around. The rear spoiler is a nice addition from new, rounding the rear of the car nicely with more than a subtle nod to the performance on offer from this uber saloon.

The E60 really brought the game forward in terms of tech at ones disposal; one of the very first road vehicles to feature a Head Up display with gear, revs and current vehicle speed appearing on the windscreen above the instrument binnacle. Other modern considerations compliment the broad operating bracket on offer, with upgraded HiFi, Nav and Bluetooth all in good working order.

The Silverstone Merino leather retains excellent original integrity, with no unsightly marks, stains or scuffs whilst the carpets have only minor deterioration to the surround edge of the driver’s side to report. The rear seats look as though they have had very little use, if any, whilst the boot is tidy and clean.

Under the bonnet of this M5 lurks the monstrous 500bhp V10 engine, which propels the car from 0-60mph in a staggering 4.8 seconds. There is nothing quite like the sound of this V10, the likes of which we will not see again – just breathtaking. Whilst the engine demands revs to extract all of the performance potential, the car is more than happy at cruise with ‘only’ provide 400hp in standard setup – a Sport button will unleash a further 100hp should one want to go that step further.

With the benefit of an SMG clutch and flywheel replacement under warranty the drive train is in excellent health.

The unmarked 19 inch alloys are wrapped in a matching set of Michelin Pilot Sports – all with 5mm+ tread depth all round.

The brake discs and pads show plenty of life as confirmed by BMW’s most recent health check report in Nov of this year.

Delivered in May of 2005, this E60 M5 has enjoyed a conscientious service routine with the main agents over a 12 year period. Having received an appropriate on time running in service, the car has subsequently been back to the main agent on a further 8 occasions with all service invoices accounted for from 2010.

Critically, each and every BMW health check over the last 4 years has come back with a clean bill of health, with the diff input seal the only advisory in that time – duly replaced along with an accompanying additive oil. The SMG adaptations have been reset and clutch points relearned recently whilst the AC has also been serviced.

A full book pack, spare key and ring binder full of invoicing sits alongside the supplementary owners wallet inclusive of BMW’s own Autocheck / Mileage Check Certificate from 2009.

The car has had everything it has needed and more over a long ownership period; a great deal of love and care bestowed upon what must be one of the finest examples available on the market today.

The car is supplied having had an extensive intake inspection. Warranty, Finance, Part Exchange and Worldwide shipping are all available on request.
