BMW will build a total of 200 “Competition Edition” M5 sedans, 100 black and 100 white, with a substantial power bump and a few tasteful decorative bits. Is it special enough to be a viable investment, or would you rather just take it out and just drive the tires off it?
BMW is reportedly killing the manual transmission in both the M5 and M6 models once production ends later this year, and it is most likely never coming back.
The 2018 BMW M5 super sedan isn’t expected to bow until at least the 2017 Geneva Auto Show, but the car’s already been spotted running hot laps on German’s speed limitless Nürburgring. And it sounds angry.
For every landmark, legendary automobile there is in history, there’s a poor sap of a car that has to succeed it.
We've known AWD BMW M cars were an inevitability, but to actually see one is something else entirely. So many emotions... have you decided to cry heresy or applaud the Bavarians' newly progressive attitude?
So far, BMW has resisted the lure of adding all-wheel drive to their top-performing M lineup like Mercedes has been doing lately and Audi has always done. Expect that to change soon: the all-wheel drive M cars are coming.

I've never warmed up to the new BMW M5. Yes, it's got gobs of torque and toys galore, but it still feels like a warmed-over 550 – a bit of a punt on a marque that deserves more. Steve Dinan tends to agree. Not just because his business depends on it, but because he's obsessed – and I don't use that word lightly – with…
If you want the ultimate super sedan, get yourself a BMW M5 with the Competition Pack. It will still come with digitally generated engine noises and eat the Nissan GT-R's dust, but is it more fun?
BMW is honoring one of its most renowned nameplates well. The M5 "30 Jahre M5" 30th anniversary edition looks really good. Better still, it makes a ton of power. In fact, it's the most powerful production BMW ever. Happy, happy birthday!
When it debuted in the mid-1980s, the E28 BMW M5 was known as the fastest production sedan in the world. The current F10 M5 is certainly no slouch either, and for its 30th birthday, it will get a power bump to nearly 600 horses.
Even though it didn't come to the U.S. until a couple years after its 1984 debut, BMW is celebrating the 30th anniversary of its big sports sedan, the M5. And they're honoring it with some donuts.
This is the first ever BMW E34 M5 Wagon. You know, the Ronin M5, the last handbuilt M5, the last M5 with a straight six, only in wagon form. This one was imported to the States and it's been for sale since last year. Wait, what?
How do you tell your friends and family that you're expecting a baby? A phone call to mom and dad? A text message to your pals? A gleeful Facebook post? Jalopnik reader Mehrdad Zarifkar has them all beat with his BMW M5 and a tribute to the BMW Films. Best future parents ever!
BMW got a lot of flack recently for pumping artificial engine noise through the speakers of some M cars. Cadillac says they're doing the same thing with the 2014 CTS, just that they'll be doing it with real noises. Which is better, somehow.
The BMW M5 is as old-school as high-performance sedans get. Name an opponent, and the M5 has taken it down. But can it hold its own against the comeback kid of 2009, the resurgent Cadillac CTS-V?
These days, everyone loves to talk about the E30 M3 and how it's skyrocketing in value. Call me a heretic, but as much as I love E30s, I think I'd take the original E28 M5 instead. It's classy, it's ultra rare, it's got a beefy straight six, and it was supposedly the fastest sedan in the world when it debuted.
BMW must be panicked staring into the face of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class that looks well, different, than its predecessor. In the battle of German luxury car facelifts, though, the 2014 BMW 5-Series must be one of the most subtle. Seriously, I'm looking for the new.
Fifty-one miles isn't terribly long as far as road trips go. But what if you're sideways the entire time? That's exactly what driver Johan Schwartz did in a BMW M5 recently, and it won him a Guinness World Record.
