For the lovers of precision German engineering and those with a penchant for manual performance machines, the Bring a Trailer auction platform brings forth a rare beauty: a 2007 BMW M5 with a mere 40k miles.
With a rich history of residences in Kansas and Oklahoma before being acquired by the present seller in 2022, this M5 boasts a S85 5.0-liter V10 powerhouse under its hood, mated with a six-speed manual transmission. The car's elegance is accentuated by its Black Sapphire Metallic finish draped over a plush black leather interior.
A closer look reveals a bevy of features that solidify its stature as a luxury performance sedan. From the 19″ Style 166 wheels and the M Variable differential to the adaptive xenon headlights with washers, this M5 doesn't miss a beat.
The inclusion of iDrive with navigation, Park Distance Control, and a head-up display ensures both driver and passengers are treated to the pinnacle of automotive technology.
The owner has taken meticulous care of this vehicle, with recent updates including fluid changes, wheel refinishing, and the replacement of a parking sensor, an oxygen sensor, spark plugs, and ignition coils.
A few signs of wear are present, with cracks visible on the rear window seals and minor blemishes on the driver's seat base and steering wheel trim. But these small imperfections don't take away from the car's overall magnificence.
For those wanting a deeper dive into the car's past, the provided Carfax report is spotless, showing no accidents or other damage and listing its history in Kansas, Oklahoma, and now, Florida.
As of this writing, the highest bid stands at USD $25,555 with the auction slated to end on Friday, September 29. With 13 bids already placed and two more days to go, anticipation is building around who will drive away with this pristine piece of BMW history.
