“Where all comparisons end.”

That’s how BMW advertised the new M535i in 1984, three years after the second BMW 5 Series began. The near-standard BMW was upgraded with M technology, making it the best 5 Series car at the time: 3.5 litre displacement, a six-cylinder engine with 218 hp and 310 Nm at 4,000 rpm. In 7.2 seconds the M535i accelerated to 100 km/h and the needle on the tachometer didn’t stop until 230 km/h. All in all, the BMW M535i was a harmoniously tuned, high-performance sports sedan for high-end demands. If you like: it was the M Performance automobile of the 1980s. Yet although M was in the name, the engineers at BMW Motorsports didn’t consider the M535i a pure-bred M vehicle yet.

With this concept, the handcrafted, by order only BMW M5 conquered a new market. By May 1986, more than 1,000 BMW M5 with exclusive features came off the production line. By the end of 1987, there were 2,145 cars that found new, ecstatic owners. Although in the mid-1980s it was frowned upon to brag about their “über” cars, today the first owners can boast of having owned the very first real BMW M5 – or maybe they’re still driving them today.
